    Right now, its price point is simply too high and it offers too little compared to the previous DOA X.
  2. 68
    While this is an improvement from the first Xtreme title, the game feels repetitive and some what boring.

    It's less enjoyable, more difficult, and at times blatantly creepy. [Jan. 2007, p.68]
  4. Even fans of the original game might be a little put off by this rather pointless and soulless sequel. The volleyball is still good, bouncy fun, though.
  5. Even fans of the DOA might want to think twice about picking up a copy of Xtreme 2. Although the eye candy may send your eyes into a diabetic shock, that’s about all there is here.
  6. Team Ninja has headed in exactly the wrong direction: more throwaway minigames, the same frustrating friends system, less focus on the volleyball. Instead, it winds up seeming just as superficial as the bosoms of its stars.
  7. It’s a given that the Xbox 360 sequel has slightly better graphics, but they don’t justify the aforementioned gameplay or the subsidiary poolside mini-games. Xtreme 2 represents a large step in the wrong direction for one of gaming’s finest development teams.

    Lacks gameplay but the women are the gorgeous and make it worth the buy.

    I liked the last one and I like this one. I believe people review this game poorly because they don't know how to review it. This game I liked the last one and I like this one. I believe people review this game poorly because they don't know how to review it. This game was never meant to be judged like other games. This game is about a stress free gaming environment, where you can play the game without worrying too much about anything. Which is why it is considered a vacation game. If you are looking for something for you to get hooked on, and loose sleep over, then you would dislike this game. But if you want a game that has your favorite characters, in a place that you wouldn't mind taking a trip to, with some cool mini-games, then this game is for you. People who review games shouldn't take things so seriously, and try to judge something based on what's expected, and just judge it for what it's meant to be. I did, which is why I gave it a 9. Expand

This game doesn't have much more to it than practical pornography. It is insulting to women. Any girl that sees this game would probably get pretty pissed off. It doesn't even have a purpose. What, does everyone in the world find it enjoyable to see unrealistic girls with huge boobs walk around an island and jiggle at them? I got this game hoping for some fun mini games, but all I got was a bunch of wannabe sluts. Even my boyfriend gets annoyed at their jiggling boobs. But I just don't see a point in the game. Expand

In the first game, the characters wouldThe volleyball aspect, which is the reason I loved the first game has been retooled to be unplayable. In the first game, the characters would position themselves under the ball since there is very little indication of where the ball actually is in respect to where your character is. This makes each game feel like a real volleyball game where the strategy is about setting up a good kill. Now, the characters don't automatically position themselves near the ball which leads to nothing but frustration. The extra features such as jet skiing do nothing to cover up the fact that the MAIN selling point of the gameplay, the volleyball, has been ruined. This not only leaves the game with no replay value, it also leaves it with no PLAY value. Virgins will love this game because of the girls in swimsuits. Gamers will hate this game because of the weak attempt to use sex appeal in order to sell this hollow drek as a worthy purchase. Fans of the first DOA Xtreme will absolutely despise this game's very existence due to the original fun factor being stripped away. The only good thing this game has going for it? It killed DOA Xtreme as a franchise. Expand
