Sep 9, 2013Existing fans might be wishing for more content or a cheaper price because while the add-ons are a welcomed inclusion, they might not feel like they are worth a full release. For newcomers, this is a very worthwhile package, so if you enjoy a fighting game that is easy to get into, thanks to the rock-paper-scissors mechanics and counter system, then Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is the best place to start with the franchise.
Official Xbox Magazine UKSep 18, 2013An entirely shallow addition to the fighting franchise, but it's slick and stylish nevertheless. [Dec 2013, p.87]

Basic but packed with content
Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate put your favorite boob physics into a fighting a game,
there is an awesomely varied 29 character roster, each having 4 to 12 unlockable costumes,
24 different arenas with different levels and layers to them as well interactive objects,
your standard, vs mode, a tag mode, survival, arcade, online mode which works amazingly well when you can find an opponent, which isn’t too rare, but rare enough to be noticed..
Create your own lobbies, have people drop into your single player matches if you have the option on
as well as a story mode and a surprisingly deep training modes to help you become the very best like no one ever was.
Unfortunately, at least for my personal taste, this fighting game is more about combos than it is cool moves...
This is no mortal kombat, tekken, or dragon ball z…
this is all about pulling off combos…
juggling your opponent... which can make the fighting seem fairly repetitive and basic..
You essentially have a mid-high and low variation of a kick, block, and punch for each character...
and you take these 9 variants and turn them into combos…
Which sadly takes any spectacle out of the fighting…
Even with the intractable stages... there are just no jump out of your seat moments…
Thankfully each character feels different...
They all have their own martial arts style, and as a martial artist myself, it was quite satisfying pulling off strikes and grappling moves I was familiar with…
This satisfaction due to familiarity made of for the pretty lifeless fights…
But what isn’t lifeless is this games story mode...
It’s all about the 5th Dead or alive tournament... at least I think… but then it’s about a clone... and people from the tournament for some reason get involved...
it’s all over the place..
I have no idea what went on in the story, but it was crazy and I enjoyed it...
As you play through this impressively hefty 3 hour long story mode, you get introduced to dozens of characters…
This was my first dead or alive game, and I feel like the story mode did a perfect job of introducing these unfamiliar characters to me…
The delivery of the story though, not so much…
While I did find Dead or Alive Ultimate fairly basic...
It’s full of content for fighting fans to sink their fists into.
I give Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate
a 7.5/10… Expand

Stop FOCUSING ON HENTAI, SEX, PORN or whatever Team Ninja is thinking about and FOCUS on giving us more stages, characters and adding on the story mode. Why is there so much POINTLESS DLC out there for this game??? The ULTIMATE EDITION is a 7/10 because it is the same game but just with all the dlc. It's a RE-RELEASE AND I AM SICK OF THEM! STOP IT!! GIVE US FULL GAMES!!! I am sick OF POINTLESS DLC and I am SICK OF SUPER EDITIONS. Isn't it bad enough that Killer Instinct has now fell into the same trap and that Street Fighter IV is coming out with yet another edition of the SAME GAME??? LEARN FROM CAPCOM!

Dec 31, 2013In a positive sense DOAU5 has fluid and easy to grasp combat, that at the very least is enjoyable to watch. However, everything else aboutIn a positive sense DOAU5 has fluid and easy to grasp combat, that at the very least is enjoyable to watch. However, everything else about this game drags it's good features overwhelmingly into the dirt. First, this is the same game you got in Dead or Alive 5, except now you are required to download a free "costume compatibility pack" to even be able to play it. So, make sure you have a connection. Second, when sifting through the marketplace to find this costume pack, you will notice that there are over 250 downloadable costumes, all priced at $2 a pop...it takes a few minutes just to find the packs you need. In fact, you soon realize that this game isn't about the fighting anymore it's all about the "sexy" costumes. Considering that you can get the same exact game for cheaper, it is not worth your time. Team Ninja has been trash for awhile, worrying more about unrealistic breast physics and microtransactions than the actual game. Factor in that the "Story Mode" is complete, nonsensical garbage and that even with a golden internet connection, not enough people own this game (compared to the original) to find a quick match up. This game isn't worth it, even for the fluid gameplay, especially when other games have been doing the fighting genre so much better than Team Ninja has been able to. (Check out Injustice, Moral Kombat, BlazBlue, or pretty much anything else for your fighting fix. For your big breasted videogame fix, just look up hentai online. Seriously.)… Expand
Jan 14, 2014Doa5u is a very fluid game with beautiful womans, but that's all about this game.
The story is very boring, you have to wait a very long cgDoa5u is a very fluid game with beautiful womans, but that's all about this game.
The story is very boring, you have to wait a very long cg animation before enter in the fight.
This game is just a re release of the previous doa5, with old characters back, and a minor improvement of the mechanic.
But unfortunately TN worry only about the breasts physics and the expensive and not worth dlc's.
In general is not worth paying the full price for the game.… Expand
