    Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is not trying to prove anything and offers generously fun to the fullest. It has beautiful girls, lots of action, quick battles... what else can you ask for?

    Owners of the PC version are faced with a difficult choice — either wait for the promised online multiplayer and enjoy the fact that it is a decent port of an excellent fighting game, or berate Team Ninja that Last Round lacks some odd features.

    I'm glad to see the DOA series come to PC, but this port is a bit shaky at launch. The core gameplay is good, but no online play (for about three months when a patch comes out), a mixed graphical presentation, and other oddities make this hard to recommend right now -- might be best to give it some time to simmer.

    It's a very sloppy port and even 4K doesn't improve the old fashioned graphics. But that doesn't mean it's a bad game, it's still a rich and easy to learn beat-em-up. Those are rare on PC.

    On one hand I welcome Tecmos decision to premiere this beat em up franchise on PC. But on the other this is just half-hearted so I wonder if they just want to cash in before Mortal Kombat X arrives.

    It might have benefited Dead or Alive 5 Last Round to be issued into Steam’s Early Access program as, in its current state, is a lacking experience that’s below its console counterparts.

    Without online multiplayer, all the stages and possessing visuals that are inferior to the console versions, Dead or Alive 5 Last Round manages that rare and horrible thing of making PC players feel like second-class citizens to their console brethren and in doing so, succeeds in heavily tarnishing what is actually a pretty incredible fighting game in the process.

    The DLCs are expensive but most of them are worth it because of the fan service, very sexy outfits.
    The rest of the game is perfect.

    Are people just reading the somewhat negative notes about this game and making bad reviews over it?

    First off - I own the ps4 copy as well.
    Are people just reading the somewhat negative notes about this game and making bad reviews over it?

    First off - I own the ps4 copy as well. I bought this version as DOA is my favorite fighting game of all time and I want to play it when I travel on my laptop. Here's a little detail about the difference between the two versions:

    Graphics:
    Don;t be so quick to dismiss the PC version. The graphics are basically equal on both versions (But I get a better framerate on my laptop). All this noise about the soft engine and some items being equivalent to the ps3 version is totally crazy. MAYBE if I bring my laptop downstairs and pause both versions side by side I'd see a difference....no guarantees. Giving this game a bad review due to the lack of the soft engine is like hating a hamburger because the bun has 2% less sesame seeds.

    ***Quick side note - I bought the story mode on PSN because I thought you needed it to get trophies....but there aren't any on PSN either. Very strange as I thought every playstation game was required to have them.

    Online:
    No debate here....PS4 has full online with the cool share button features as well. No steam online for 3 months which would make this a terrible purchase for you if you only play online. I mainly play local competitive or arcade mode so I'm not missing out.

    Random thoughts:
    The loading time in the PS4 is surprisingly good, but not nearly as nice as having the game installed on your SSD. Game is extremely fast on steam!

    I have the wireless 360 controller for windows and it works flawlessly. No strange button maps here.

    I'm using a laptop with a nvidia 770M (Which is low/mid range compared to desktop cards). The game runs flawlessly @1080p and I never see any slowdown.

    People still care about steam achievements??? They're so useless O.o

    Anyways... I do agree about the online functionality. Hopefully that gets fixed sooner than later. But all these other complaints seem really unnecessary. Go out and try the PS4 version if you really want to see the difference in graphics. The game play is identical, with the exception of the better loading times which makes a big difference for me.

    Je n'avais pas joué à DOA depuis le premier opus sur play....
    J'adore, je ne comprend pas ce qu'on peut détester en ce jeu au point de mettre
    Je n'avais pas joué à DOA depuis le premier opus sur play....
    J'adore, je ne comprend pas ce qu'on peut détester en ce jeu au point de mettre 2!
    Le gameplay est fidèle à lui-même, je retrouve le plaisir des mécaniques d’enchaînements assez virtuoses.
    Bonne balance entre accessibilité et technique. L'histoire est cheezy au possible... ben oui, c'est DOA... respect déjà d'oser incorporer un scénario. Pleins de persos belles et sexy. Beaucoup de décors, bel essai sur l’interactivité de ceux-ci (projeter son adversaire sur les troncs d'arbres dans la forêt, j'adore)
    Sound design très bien fichu, les impacts des coups sonnent justes, voix en japonais AU TOP, beaucoup de choix de musiques pour "tous" les goûts.
    Je trouve les costumes traditionnels vraiment très beaux, et beaucoup d'autres costumes tous plus vulgaires les uns que les autres, vous allez aimer les gars. Les packs de costume de noel sont très chiants par contre, car ridicules et il n'est pas possible de les filtrer dommage.
    Il y a énormément de personnages, une quantité de coups hallucinante, le motion capture est très bien réalisé et les combats sont beaux à regarder, très fluides, réalistes en certains points mais très acrobatiques aussi. Énormément de styles d'arts martiaux, comment ne pas être comblé?
    Beaucoup de tutos et modes de jeux... Bref un excellent jeu.

    On peut lui reprocher peu d'être un peu trop fourni en coups, avec une trentaine de persos et des centaines d'enchaînements pour chaque, c'est parfois dur de s'y retrouver même si il y a beaucoup de similitudes entre les persos à ce niveau là (une logique certaines derrière les commandes).
    Il lui manque des **** éléments de récompense aussi qui nous accrocherait plus. Les seules récompenses sont de débloquer des costumes (ce qui est pour beaucoup l'intérêt principal du jeu) mais ça lui manque un petit côté RPG à la Soul Calibur

    Après je comprend ceux qui ragent pour les manques et ratés du portage PC, mais bon... Moi j'ai plus de console, et je n'en veux pas, j'étais donc super heureux de voir que ce jeu serait porté sur PC et je ne suis pas déçu. Après si t'as une console, achète-le pour cette plate-forme, c'est clair.

    Belle durée de vie. Pas déçu du tout, à posséder absolument sur PC si on aime ce genre.

    What I liked:
    - Character models are eyecandy!
    - Core game is cheap! - Solid and enjoyable fighting game! What I disliked: - Lacks
    What I liked:
    - Character models are eyecandy!
    - Core game is cheap!
    - Solid and enjoyable fighting game!

    What I disliked:
    - Lacks steam features for a steam game
    - Missing features/content like the vertical tilt in spectator mode, 2 stages
    - DLC is more expensive than the core game
    - Graphics was not pushed to it's limits
    - An incomplete product despite the release date being pushed back

    For someone who has played the game in PS3, the PC version is graphically superior in comparison unlike what most people say, but still subpar for PC standards.
    It seems more time was put into encrypting the files to counter modding than actually giving the game and the fans the PC treatment it deserves.

    Usual broken garbage port. No online at launch when the quality of this port ALREADY doesnt justify the game coming out 3 months later.
    -No
    Usual broken garbage port. No online at launch when the quality of this port ALREADY doesnt justify the game coming out 3 months later.
    -No controller support (Technically has it but the buttons are completely jacked up because its an arcade port, Oh and you cant rebind them)
    -No achievements
    -No online
    -Saves are tied to your CURRENT steam name. (If you change your name in steam it cant detect your save file....WTF?)
    -Missing stages
    -Upscaled from last gen so it lacks soft engine and looks pretty poor quality overall
    -Bad optimization? (Slow downs during win poses in story mode, SLI/XFIRE not optimized, Crash's in story mode occasionally) *EDIT* I havent personally had any problems but i hear the game is more CPU intensive than GPU somehow?
    -DLC can go f**k itself ( Seriously? 55$ and 65$ for the DLC which is MORE expensive than the console's and WTF is the point without F**KING ONLINE FOR 3 MONTHS?!?!)

    Dont buy this game, if they end up not porting any future DoA's to the PC we are WAY better off without them anyway if this is the treatment they are going give us.

    I do NOT know which planet these morons singing the game's praises live on, but they definitely ain't on the same one that I'm from.

    Yes
    I do NOT know which planet these morons singing the game's praises live on, but they definitely ain't on the same one that I'm from.

    Yes indeed, ladies and gents, Tecmo and Team Ninja bring you yet another extra special dosage of T&A action with yet another DoA title. With MORE **** MORE ass, and MORE blatantly rubbish fighting that will have any pubescent teenager either smashing the **** out of his console or ogling wobbly breasts all day.
    This game has great graphics, it's plot - on the other hand - is definitely on a par with a children's book - and by a children's book I mean just give it a nursery rhyme and the plot would be better. I don't know who thought it up, but it was rubbish.
    The fighting is nothing spectacular, but I do have to say I am very surprised that Team Ninja have just left the fighting engine the way it's been for so long already. Having had a character thrown to the ropes by Tina, why are the ropes still lifelessly rigid? You don't see that happening in a real wrestling or boxing ring so why not in the game?
    Methinks Team Ninja would be best at soft porn game manufacture, because all those guys in the game are just to throw the parents off track. Don't think we don't know that **** Team Ninja. Oh wait...
