Dead or Alive 5 review

Reviewed September 27, 2012

Jason Venter says: "The petite Leifang no longer looks like she might easily win an arm wrestling contest against the hulking behemoth that is Bass, for instance, which lends encounters between certain characters some of the impact that they lacked previously. Even among the girls, newcomer Mila (a sexy and confident MMA boxer) appears much taller and lankier than diminutive scrappers such as Ayane and Pai. The female characters in particular seem to have received more detailed texture work, particularly where their arms are concerned, so that the models in Dead or Alive 4 seem almost like animated Barbie dolls in comparison."
