  1. Underneath the ever-jiggling and moaning surface, Dead or Alive 5 Plus is a solid and addictive fighter with plenty of compulsive brawling to enjoy on handheld. [May 2013, p.115]

    Although PLUS is a competent port of Dead Or Alive 5, it doesn’t add quite enough to warrant a re-purchase.

    Sure, the PS Vita version lacks some content compared to the console versions, but this is still an enjoyable fighting game with great controls.
  4. Let’s not pull any punches. This PS Vita version features the exact same pugilism, panty-service and pendulous paired appendages of Dead or Alive 5 on PS3, just in the palm of your questionably-callused hands. [May 2013, p75]
  5. 60
    A good quality port that maintains almost all the original features, and even adds a few of its own, but the game itself is still a disappointing and unadventurous sequel.

The graphics is soA jam packed game full of hot chicks that was ported successfully to one of the greatest handheld console of the decade. The graphics is so exceptional that PS Vita showed its competitors their big differences. Sound is excellent, the game enables you to enjoy those music that you can't clearly listen to while fighting. Highly enjoyable because of its new features, the all new Touch/Tap fight that was made because of Vita's touchscreen technology and so much more. Downloadable content is a must-have if you want to enjoy those sexy ladies fighting it all-out to the end. A must play title of the PS Vita for all the Arcade bad-ass out there. Full Review »
