A sports offshoot from Tecmo's successful fighting franchise, Xtreme Beach Volleyball features the seven women of Dead or Alive as they enjoy some sun and fun on a tropical island. Players have an opportunity to enter a volleyball tournament or explore various other activities while staying at the luxury resort. A movie theater is available to view trailers of Ninja Gaiden and previous games in the Dead or Alive series, while a casino includes themed versions of slots, blackjack, roulette, and poker. Players can also kick back and watch their character relax by the pool or engage in a hopping mini-game between volleyball contests.
An eighth character, Lisa, has been added to the roster and will be featured in later Dead or Alive fighting titles. Also available are over 100 swimsuits to collect and more than 50 accessories to wear. Players can purchase outfits and accessories for their favorite female, which may result in better team play during matches if the gift matches a character's preferences. Competitions are scheduled daily for a period of 14 days, referred to as a "vacation." Players can listen to 20 licensed songs or import their own music saved on the hard drive, and those having a Dead or Alive 3 file stored on their Xbox will be able to start with more money than the default $10,000. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
