    Eh... so its the Dreamcast port of the same game with blockier characters? No I'm not kidding- read up about Sony's porting teams and their overall inconsistency in porting this game over the Playstation hardware. Its almost a travesty. Fantastically fun fighting game though and probably one of the few outside of Soul Calibur that I ever got into (although the first one on dreamcast is still pretty awesome). Tight controls, good mechanics, more boobs... this game has it all! It does happen to have a bunch more features (that may be irrelevant if you just like the game though) than the Dreamcast version. I don't really care though. Collapse

  1. Incredible at the time, DOA2 did things the "big boys" hadn't even dreamed of. [Oct 2004, p.122]

    The action is fast and exciting, the breasts still jiggle and the scene interaction could actually see you saying the word "wow!"

    One of the best looking fighters so far for the PS2, it eclipses "Street Fighter EX3" and "Tekken Tag Tournament" for beauty.
