Dead Or Alive 5 is the eagerly anticipated fifth game in the incredible Dead Or Alive saga, with the series finally continuing after a seemingly never ending hiatus. This game brings back old and familiar faces, as well as introducing new characters, and is also the first throughout the entire franchise to be released on the Playstation 3.
The Collector’s Edition Includes:
The vibrant and realistic graphics within this game are astounding, and display ample improvements since the previous DOA game. These improvements include details such as your character actually sweating the more energy they put in to a fight, adding a layer of realism. The game carries on its traditional combination of their own distinctive fighting style fusing perfectly with a specific blend of mixed martial arts, to bring you one of the best high-action fighting games around. Prepare yourself to deliver powerful punches and devastating kicks to your opponent, with your only chance of achieving victory in the Dead Or Alive tournament is by completely decimating each and every foe that challenges you.
Several new features have been developed for this game in order to help you achieve ultimate victory. This includes Power Moves, with which you can trigger a specially charged attack that sets off a slow motion cinematic attack combo, allowing you to aim and launch your quarry. Another new feature is the interactive environments, allowing you to use them to your advantage, as well as the backdrop changing as the fight progresses in order to further challenge your skills. A new Danger Zone has also been added to this game called a Cliffhanger, where should a fighter lose their footing on the edge of an environment, for example a cliff, they will be given the chance to recover when they fall as they will grab the edge of the cliff.
These new features and impressive game developments allow the player to completely immerse themselves with their character, each fight leaving them as breathless and exhilarated as if they had actually fought themselves. Hone and perfect your fighting skills and abilities so you can win the tournament, and be crowned as the Ultimate Fighter. (Cat Emerson)

Six years have passed since Dead or Alive 4 and the figth installment of Dead or Alive makes its debut on PlayStation 3. Helena Douglas has now taken over DOATEC and hosts the fifth DOA Tournament. New features for this game includes highly improved graphics over 4. The characters looks more human than ever and the details are simply amazing. The game also introduces a power blow, which is similar to a super move in other fighting games. The DOA series is well known for its interactive stages. Cliffhanger makes it possible to kick another player off an edge. Two new characters are introduced in the game. Mila is an MMA fighter with a fighting style similar to Zack. Rig uses Taekwondo and is a great character for combos. Dead or Alive 5 also features guest appearances by Akira, Sarah and Pai from the popular Virtua Fighter series. The new Story mode lets the player experience all the game from all characters perspective. It also helps the player to get used to the controls. It's similar to the previous titles and the game features an excellent online mode. The Collector´s edition includes a steel box, artbook, poster and exclusive downloadable costumes. To sum it up, Dead or Alive 5 is an excellent fighting game. The only downside is that it feels like the same game as DOA 4.
