    A fighting game with bad fighting mechanics is not a good game, period. Graphics, sound, online, boobs or whatever can't make up for the fact that Street Fighter II, a game that nearly 2 decades old offers more intense, strategic and satisfying fights than this game. This is an overrated game and grossly overrated franchise from an overrated development house.

  1. Varied play modes such as tag and survival, plus countless unlockable items, add further appeal. But the lack of new moves or characters is disappointing.
  2. Entertaining, but not for the hardcore fighting fan. Every move is very easy to pull off, it's more a matter of learning the best combos, and what each character will throw at you so you can properly defend yourself.

    Did we really need a third version of Dead or Alive 2? Probably not, and we definitely didn't need more DOA 1. But, for diehard fight fans and online junkies, Ultimate is worth a look.
