Does the raw complexity of Virtua Fighter 2 overwhelm you? Are you looking for a fighting game with some more "oomph" to it? Then look no farther than Dead or Alive, a fighting game from Tecmo's Team NINJA, the folks responsible for the original Ninja Gaiden.
Choose from one of eight fighters from different walks of life and pit them against each other in the ring! Kicks, punches and throws are animated beautifully, and punching someone into the "Danger Zone" sends them hurtling into the air with a huge explosion. Slap away your opponents' attacks with the "Evade" key, then take them out with a custom combo.
Powered by Lockheed Martin's Model 2 technology, Dead or Alive provides 3D graphics with special animations on the female characters' chests (this must be seen to be believed). Are you man enough to butt heads in the world of Dead or Alive? We sure hope so... ~ Colin Williamson, All Game Guide
