Good

It's Okay.

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.

So I get the game and I am very interested in playing it, but having stuff to do around the house I put off playing it till Father's day. I sit down put in the game and I'm stuck in a screen wanting me to buy and online pass which of course I will not since after all I ordered the game through gamefly and do not intend on keeping it or buying anything for a game I have yet to play. Needless to say I sat at that screen unable to go back till finally I decided to just send it back and give it the review it deserved from the game play I experienced which was absolutely 0 I guess they don't want you to play the game unless you wasted the money on it in the first place.
