Horrible

More than a little dissapointed

Be aware that the 2-day free trial is no longer available. I am utterly disappointed with Tecmo and the DOA franchise. I will not now nor ever spend an additional $10 just to be able to play a rented game. Not even being to play it offline without purchasing the online pass is beyond greedy and I am thoroughly disgusted by companies who chose this path of cannibalizing their supporters. I didn't even get to play the game and would give this experience a negative number rating if 1wasn't the minimum allowed.

There really wasn't much to expect from this game. Fighters, these days, are more or less the same as their predecessors. The story mode lacked any kind of grasp on the player. It just happened so fast that you couldn't really make out what just happened, but that's usually the case in most fighters, the lack of story. The fighting mechanics are always great in the Dead or Alive series. There's great combos, counters, grabs, and so on. Dead or Alive 5 is not the best in the series but it holds true to its core mechanics.

I put the game in, and it asked me to download a bunch of updated files. So I did. and the game still wouldn't start. So i put it back in the envelope and threw it in a mailbox.
Ain't nobody got time for that.
