Dead or Alive 4


Tecmo, for many years has produced hit after hit on the Xbox, and the Dead or Alive fighting game series have always been a hit for the fans out there. The original Xbox launch had been given Dead or Alive 3 and well the fans were pleased as punch to...

Dead or Alive 4 (Xbox 360) review


Dead or Alive is back, bigger, badder and bouncier than ever. After last year's remakes of the first two in the series Tecmo have finally given us an all new instalment and all the familiar faces are back along with a few new ones including the much...

If you have an Xbox 360 and like beat 'em ups then you owe it to yourself to buy this game.

Dead or Alive 4


Dead or Alive 4 is one of the must-have games for new Xbox 360 owners.

Tight, fast gameplay complemented by responsive controls ; Large list of characters to choose from, including new additions to the team ; Immersive and interactive environments ; Addictive online experience ; Looks amazing in HD

Sparring mode needs more fleshing out for newbie players ; No offline persistent versus mode ; Still not a bastion of political correctness

Dead Or Alive 5 Review


It could've been a situation with the word "disaster" written all over it. Itagaki and various team members from his famed Team Ninja departed with the company last year, leaving a couple of Tecmo's bigger franchises in doubt. But did the company...

As for the extras, you can unlock a few bonus fighters, including a couple of surprise entrants – Virtua Fighter's Akira and Sarah Bryant. They're actually great entries to the series, though you have to wonder if Sega is going to get some DOA faces in...

Dead or Alive 4


More bounce per pounce…

Do we really have to point out how brain-blisteringly beautiful DOA4 is?; Best implementation of the series’ reversal system

Not too different enough from DOAU

It’s called “Dead or Alive,” but does anyone ever die?

Dead or Alive 4


Although I'm excited about the news of DOA4, I'm also sick and tired of all the one-on-one fighting games at this point. This was the reason I was so hard on Dead or Alive Ultimate in my review. Sure, the game looked and played fine, but because it...

Dead or Alive 4 (XBOX 360)


SYNOPSIS: The general story of DOA4 is the same as the story of DOA3: Ninjas stopping DOATEC, People working for DOATEC, Tina wanting to be a rock star, her dad trying to stop her, and a couple extras just there for fighting variety. This is really...

Dead or Alive 4


Strangely though, with some of the characters the difficulty is noticeably not as hard. The new characters seem to be less developed than the veterans, and because of that completing the story mode is also easier. Some of the harder or “lesser”...

Dead or Alive 4 is definitely a fantastic display of the Xbox 360 and is a fantastic Xbox 360 title. It is definitely the finest of the series, and is an achievement with the online modes, and the best looking fighter out on the market to date. It...

Dead or Alive 4


A great fighting game that locks up regularly online.

What was the absolute worst though, was the way I achieved the Bronze and Silver Star achievements. To get these you have to swoop down and beat a guy in the middle of a 11-14 or 15-19 win streak. I had no idea I was even close to getting these...

Dead or Alive 4


There are two kinds of gamer when it comes to beat-em-ups. There are your technical geniuses who can spin combos together quicker than Bruce Lee brushed his teeth. Their matches are like a virtual ballet, with their characters moving so smoothly you'd...

The Time Attack is as it suggests, played with the aim to polish off your opponents in the quickest times possible to win challenges. Survival Mode is a “run the gauntlet” style affair, trying to beat as many opponents as possible without losing. Other...
