Dead Or Alive 5 Verdict: A Step In The Right Direction


Posted October 3, 2012 - By Leah Jackson

Dead or Alive 5 Video Review »

Dead Or Alive 5 is the latest installment in the fighting game franchise that tries to breathe new life in to the series with a brand new story mode and Power Blows. Yet ultimately, even though we found these mechanics to be a step in the right direction, they didn't exactly exceed our expectations.

From our Dead or Alive 5 review:

"The big new addition with Dead or Alive 5 is the Power Blow. When a character reaches 50 percent or lower health, they can perform this charge-up attack that, if it lands, automatically confirms several more hits and sends the target hurtling across the stage. It's designed to be both dramatic and useful as a tool for turning the tables against a dominating opponent, but they're not as visually satisfying as X-Ray Moves from Mortal Kombat or Hyper Combos from Street Fighter, and there's no reward for playing well, only for losing."
