    Once again, almost the same game that we saw a couple of years ago, but it's still a worthy game for the new gen consoles that doesn't have a lot of quality fighting games available. Beautiful and smooth, but a little bit aged.

    Outside of a few issues though Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is still a super enjoyable fighting game. There is a superb amount of content, and for those not wanting to invest fully, Core Fighters is a great alternative to check out what it has to offer.

    There’s nothing new in Last Round that you haven’t seen by now in the previous versions of DoA 5, and there is nothing wrong with it. However, the constant problems that prevail in the online mode are something that will make the experience of playing it something really frustrating. It’s really a shame that a really important aspect like this still suffers after the two really good attempts that were Dead or Alive 5 and Ultimate.

    The content additions are minor and the visual upgrades are difficult to spot. [Apr 2015, p.78]

    The fact that this is the "new" version of a last-gen iteration doesn't suffice when you realize it only adds 2 poorly developed characters and a couple of recycled scenarios. If you are a fan of the series and you are looking to play the game in the current generation of consoles, this is the version you need, just bear in mind that it is not a next-gen game properly speaking, but an adaptation with a couple of irrelevant additions.

    Despite real new features and a not-so-great visual environment, Dead or Alive 5 Last Round still stands as a solid fighting game, with rich content and gameplay.

    It’s particularly frustrating to see Last Round struggle in terms of raw performance when it has no problem marketing its DLC.

The gameplay is still fast and with great variety of movements in each character, sound has always gone unnoticed and this time does not stand more or less.

    Things I did not like to get to 10:
    1. It has many bugs in programming and game crash constantly, I guess it's something that can be fixed with a couple of patches.
    2. Even if you buy the game completely, you have to walk down parts.

    El combate es fluido los personajes e ven geniales, es muy fácil de aprender pero tiene cosas para que tardes mas en dominar, Dead or Alive es el rey en la lucha 3D. No hay nada mejor ni mas divertido de jugar.

The details of dirt and sweat even go further by putting on shattering suits as the battle progresses. The model "data catalog" allows you to buy via DLC the scenarios, the characters, the costumes you want, you are not obliged to have all the suits. The danger zones are very good and crazy (Sky City Tokyo, The Circus, War Zone ..). There is a Free to Play version called "Core Fighters". The agreement with Sega to include more Virtual Fighter characters and expand their lore. The addition of old bosses gives more variety (Nyontengu, Phase 4, Leon). The blow charged as "Finish him / her" is very satisfactory. The animations of equipment and blows charged in equipment in Tag mode.

    The bad: The new characters do not contribute anything (Mila, Honoka, Rose Mari ...). The story except of the Ninjas (which is interesting and recalls previous versions of DoA), for the other characters is irrelevant and a complete ridicule (yes, I know that many do not like Leifang but his shipping with Jean Lee has never been given) . It is the third relaunch of DoA5 (5 "normal", Ultimate and The Last Round). There are no final animations for many characters (at least "champion of the 5th tournament" minimum)

    The Meh!: “DoA Bouncing” can be disabled. Seeing Virtual Fighter characters (Akira, Pai, Jacky and Sarah) fight as equals with DoA's characters makes me ask for a DoA vs Virtua Fighter but now !!! (What are you waiting for?)

The game is fast andIf you have DOA5 on the last gen systems, there really is no need to buy this, just upgrade the version you already have. The game is fast and furious and very fun but I can't see much difference graphically between the older PS3 version and The Xbox One version. I know there are problems with the game crashing but in all honesty, I haven't had this problem (I rarely play online, that seems to be were the most problems start) but I have noticed the game will freeze up at times, also some of the challenges (in the training section) were automatically completed without me doing anything, and finally I've had issues with the controls (again this was in the training section) where I just mash buttons rapidly and regardless of the on screen prompts--I got a success and completion of the challenge. So there are problems with the game, whether its the controls, the crashes or game freezes it is in dire need of an update patch asap. Still it is fun, when it works, and at $40 it is priced reasonably so pick it up if you don't already have a previous version. Oh one more thing...currently the online matchmaking does not work, at least for me. Expand

    First off,
    The worst part of this review, as it stands, is that it is one my favorite fighting games. So... if you're a fan... get ready.

    First off, when you put a game in, and it reads as 'default title'. Well, you know you're in for a treat. I chose the game, and it went to the marketplace, and queued up all 30+ DLC items and proceeded to what I can only guess, is download the game. Apparently the disc is just a key? I don't know. Once it was done however, I was greeted with all its glory.

    I had a blast as I once again played through the story mode, and played a few rounds of survival with returning favorites and new comers alike! Then.. I tried to play online...Wow... I have yet to find a single match, and it has crashed out to the xbox guide screen everytime.... ranked or lobby. It didn't matter which. Crash, crash, crash.... so, unless you're a fan who is really anxious to play the single player content once more, and willing to delve deeply into it for a bit I'd say... save your money. The online seems completely broken right now. This is one of my favorite fighting games, and apparently Tecmo got the memo that you can release broken games this gen, and just patch it later... it's very close to sitting on the shelf next to the master chief collection. Ridiculous. Local multiplayer works great, story works great, single player modes work great.... online is completely broken.. and that is a huge disappointment... I'd rate it lower, but I still love the game.

I enjoy some of the over-the-top fan service simply because it's different from most games available. You have the option to choose outfits that are more than just bikinis and turn off breast motion if it offends you. Why count off for that? What definitely should be counted off for though is the insane number of glitches. My game froze dozens of times when working towards the achievement for accepting 10 online throwdown matches. Utterly disappointing to start from the dashboard all over again, reminds me of how Halo: MCC made my hairs turn grey from crashing. This is a huge issue that will make even a fun game seem like an annoyance. One or two crashes, okay it was a bug that was skipped over... dozens of crashes?? Come on guys, I know you had to test the game somewhat before it was released. Fun game but crashing majority of the time when connecting to others online breaks the experience. I'm a huge fighting game fan and the only reason I do not regret this purchase was that it was rightly priced at $40 for all of the characters. Having only played DOA on other's consoles and never owning it before, it was a good deal and loads of fun. I look forward to even more fighting game choices on the One soon! Expand

    the game is great, i love it, has a tons of costumes and fan service. but the xbox one version crashes all the time, that means that you can not play the game even solo in arcade mode. because its crashes no matter what.

    they will fix this soon i guess, but this short of things shouldnt be happening, we are paying for agood product, not for a game with bugs to be fixed days after you bought it.

    is a great game but fails to deliver because of that. i would recomend to wait a few days until team ninja fix it. check ign or gamestop for news about it.

    el juego esta buenisimo en contenido, varios trajes y desbloqueables, no viene todo el catalogo entero por que son muchisimos y el juego esta a un buen precio por lo que contiene. 39 dlls en eua y en el bazar digital de mexico 499 pesos.
    34 peleadores todos de inicio solo que varios trajes hay que sacarlos pasando el modo arcade o alguno otro.
    el juego es rapido y tiene muchisimo fan service, el problema radica en algo que se esta poniendo de moda ultimamente.
    sacar juegos incompletos o lleno de bugs lo cual irrita completamente al grado de frustarte y no querer jugarlo.
    el juego se traba a cada rato en los modos que acepten retos online de la nada, es decir, jugando arcade o versus contra la ia, se traba en pocos segmenos de medio segundo y al grado de paralizarse completamente la consola y reiniciar el juego, y por lo visto le esta pasando a muchisima gente en la version de xbox one la cual es la que yo compre. no es aceptable que saquen el juego asi, paso con master chief , drive club assasins creed unity y demas. esto se debe de revisar previo a sacar un producto malo y que es practivamente injugablem no hay modo de quitar la opcion de que te reten en cualquier momento si estas en arcade o time attack por lo que en cualquier instante el xbox se atoraram se reiniciara y perderas todo lo que haya logrado antes de grabar, esto seguramente lo solucionaran en los proximos dias con un parche como todo pero es frustrante al limite de no recomendarlo hasta que saquen un parche y ya no pase esto, es un gran juego sin duda, pero si no se puede jugar ni siquiera solo no tiene caso comprarlo por ahora.
