  1. Fun, deceptively deep, but the 'globe' physics fail to distract from a lack of variation.
  2. Dead or Alive Paradise is basically Extreme 2 ported to Xbox 360 without any improvements, and some features entirely cut off, like the scooter mini-game. The activities are few, poor in gameplay and boring after a (little) while. Interesting (for some) could be the collection of erotic videos and bikinis, but the user's entertainment will anyway collapse way too early. Only for the greatest fans of the franchise.
  3. The simple attack-defend volleyball games are the true beauty of Zack Island, frequently raising the pulse as you battle to deliver that killer blow. [May 2010, p.104]
  4. Somewhere buried in this amalgamation of minigames and peepshow videos is a convoluted relationship management game with a bare skeleton of backstories. [Jun 2010, p.76]
  5. 56
    At best forgettable; at worst downright creepy. [Issue#192, p.89]
  6. 50
    Dead or Alive Paradise is a poorly conceived, undersized grouping of mini-games that aren't aided by the visuals' ability to sell the characters' sex appeal.
  7. Dead or Alive has never been so far away from anything that has to do with a Paradise. This game's basically a port from the Xtreme spin-off that gamers received on Xbox 360 a few years ago, with the inclusion of some stupid flirting-sim, tons of objects and not-very-interesting minigames that will only find success with the die-hard fans of the series. Forget about it if you want to have some real fun with your PSP.
  8. This game is only for those who enjoyed dressing up a Barbie-doll!
  9. Sometimes beauty is just not enough.
  10. 50
    Most should pass on this one, but if your swimsuit area is specifically turned on by the scantily-clad ladies of DoA, then Paradise's brand of portable soft-porn may just do it for you.

    Yeah, that's right, I actually played this game, what can I say curiosity got the better of me. I'm surprised to say there's actually fun toYeah, that's right, I actually played this game, what can I say curiosity got the better of me. I'm surprised to say there's actually fun to be had with it, and not just the creepy kind. Aside from the obvious pervert appeal this is actually a volleyball game, and a pretty dang good one at that! All you really do in this game is pick a girl in a skimpy bikini and go on a two week vacation, where you can play volleyball, mini-games, make friends, and collect swimsuits. As far as the mini-games go there's pool hopping which takes some getting used to and once you get the hang of it you'll probably be done with it, gambling in the hotel's casino which is a lot of fun since you can play blackjack, poker, and slots. There's also some other lackluster unlockable mini-games, and a mode where all you do is take pictures of your girl, which isn't the least bit sexy, but actually rather humorous do to the bouncing boobs that you've no doubt have heard this game has look like wiggling creatures with minds of their own. But those modes aren't worth mentioning and the real fun you'll have with the game outside of the casino is the volleyball which is really well done, a lot of fun, and surprisingly deep. Volleyball and gambling are where this game succeeds that's for sure, in order to play volleyball with the other girls is to make friends with them by giving them gifts they'll like with the right color wrapping paper and at the right time. So in the end do I recommend Dead or Alive Paradise? If your a fan of volleyball and gambling yes. It's just a shame that the rest of the game, outside of volleyball and the casino, is either mediocre or just plain bad. Full Review »

    Well probably soon Tecmo could possibly transfer the XBOX DOA Xtreme franchise 1 and 2 transported to the PS3 as well. Well I agree with theWell probably soon Tecmo could possibly transfer the XBOX DOA Xtreme franchise 1 and 2 transported to the PS3 as well. Well I agree with the critics a little bit, sometime it wasn't meant to feel the same way as what the fans want in a Dead or Alive game. I don't have a Playstation Vita yet, but hopefully I'll play Paradise. I still love the DOA girls, all they wanna do is have some fun. Full Review »
