Product Details:

In DEAD OR ALIVE 5, players will once again take on the roles of the cast of DEAD OR ALIVE fighters in an intense, actionpacked brawler set in visually striking locations from around the world. The famed DOA handtohand combat returns, supported by completely new 3D stages that update the series' characteristic style with a fresh look and feel.

DOA5 stages are more than spectacular visual backdrops, instead playing to a fighter's strengths. As a fight progresses, the backdrop will change and interact with players. Skilled fighters will be able to utilize these dynamic stages to pit their opponents against fresh obstacles to create a new fighting experience. This fusion of combat and dynamically changing backdrops is a formula for the evolution of fighting games as "Fighting Entertainment".

With a sensual yet realistic style, DEAD OR ALIVE 5 characters are rendered in incredibly lifelike detail. From smooth, lithe muscles to emotive facial expressions, every character comes to life. Characters can even perspire as they fight, with realistic depiction of wet skin, damp hair, and moist, semitranslucent clothing as the match progresses.

Along with a rich array of single player modes including story mode, DOA5 offers new online options with arcadestyle matches, tournaments, and social features. Players can be paired into oneoff matches or work their way up the leaderboards for the honor and prestige of competing in global tournaments, the resulting matches of which can be watched by any player as a learning tool.

No longer content to be eye candy with a deadly kick, the female fighters of DEAD OR ALIVE 5 show a whole new level of character and style. The unique style of each fighter, both male and female, will be accentuated by their individual personalities as they battle with a new look and feel for an intense new generation of DEAD OR ALIVE combat.


  • Intense DOA Fighting: DOA5 expands the signature fighting style for which the series is known with a variety of new martial arts techniques and styles
  • Realistic and Sensual Graphics: Characters come alive with a new visual style combining stunning realism with a warm, naturalistic feel that conveys every facet of each character - from raw power to sleek sensuality
  • Dream Lineup: Play as Ryu Hayabusa, Hayate, Ayane, and Hitomi as well as numerous additional characters yet to be announced
  • Dynamic New Interactive 3D Stages: More than a backdrop, spectacular locations from around the world provide a changing and interactive showcase for deadly battles
  • New Finishing Moves: Use power blows to interactively trigger the Danger Zone of a stage, including crashing cars, collapsing glaciers, and an exploding oil rig - distract your opponent or drive him into danger
  • Online Battles: A fullfledged online experience awaits players that allows for both beginners and experts to compete head to head in a variety of playing fields and battle modes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Longawaited Game I have been playing this series since DOA3, and I remember when DOA4 came out. It was said to be the very end of DOA itself as a series. So this possibility was rather... disappointing, and when the Original Creator Tomonobu Itagaki left the possibility of there being another DOA seemed to be unlikely. But then, DOA made it's come back with DOAP, DOAD, and now DOA5 itself. It came out almost 7 years after the DOA4 release. With this DOA game, they went in a different direction in terms of Graphics, voices, gameplay engine, and everything. Even the story. Which I will admit, I miss the individual storymodes and Leon but the chapter system was new, and I think they did a good job with this. this is something (I don't think) hasn't be done before in a fighting game, and when you think of it most of the characters did indeed have their own story, it was just presented in a different format.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from its not my favorite in the doa series it an alright game but it just isnt the same as the other 4 games in the series that i like. the story mode is ten times different because its filled with more cutscenes and diologue than actual fights which takes away the fun for me but other than that the gameplay is awesome and easy to learn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dead Or Afive The Dead Or Alive series is still alive and kicking, as proven by this fifth iteration. So what's new since DOA 4? Aside from polished-up character models and backrounds, there are a couple of things. The "Cliffhanger" mechanic allows you to knock an opponent off the side of the stage and leave them hanging...you can then attack while rushing forward and attempt to do further damage (but be wary, it can be countered). There's also the "Power Blow", which allows you to charge up a certain attack and send your opponent flying into an environmental hazard of your choice. As always, the combat revolves heavily around reversals...so practiced players will easily be able to shut down overly aggressive novices. There are 2 new fighters for DOA 5: Mila, a boxer who focuses mainly on punches, and Rig...a Taekwondo-esque kick master. Also worth noting are the guest fighters included from Sega's Virtua Fighter series: Akira, Sarah, and Pai. They have to be unlocked by facing them in Story mode first, but they are a blast to play as and integrate quite well into the DOA formula. The Story mode in DOA 5 is a long tutorial of sorts with some in-engine cinematics between matches--there are no individual endings for characters at all--not even in Arcade mode. Of course, there's also the usual array of offline and online stuff: Training, Versus, Time Attack and Survival, ect. The Tag Team feature returns and is available in several modes, which is nice. The Spectator feature allows you to watch replays / CPU matches and take photos--a very cool extra. Unfortunately, DOA 5 still lags behind other high-profile fighting games in some areas. The gameplay does feel a little "button-mashy", and a lot of the characters seem generic...though I suppose that's a matter of preference. Still, you can't go wrong with DOA 5 for some solid fighting action.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from By Far The Best Dead or Alive To Date I've been a huge fan of the Dead or Alive series and this was a much needed evolution and return to form for the series after the disappointments of Dead or Alive 4 and Dead or Alive: Dimensions. If you're looking for a well made and fluid fighter or are a long time fan of the Dead or Alive series, this is a worthy addition to the series. Highly recommended!
