Progood game | good fighting moves

Conssame as the PS2 version

This is a great Beat em up game, it is like Tekken, but I think it is better, it dont have the powder... This game is about a story of revenge, to make their destiny come true. To make all means of fighting to go away. There are many characters, and 2 to unlock, I have only Unlocked one, but I...

Conslimited lifespan in one player mode

This opinion is taken from my own review of Dead or Alive 2, which is posted on my site www.dreamcastsource.co.uk It’s not all boobs and babes this time round, although the latter does still play a significant role in the game. Dead or Alive 2 is a 3D beat em up. It’s not quite your...

“come on!!!!”

published 16/08/2000

Whether it be wrestling or fighting one-on-one, this is my favorite genre of video game play. Although there are plenty of good fighting games out there, there hadn’t been a game better than Namco’s Soul Caliber. Now we have Dead or Alive 2 by the recently quiet company Tecmo, who has been truly...

Conserrr more characters woudl be nice

This is the first game I got for my new dreamcast (£35 for the dc), and it was my return to consoles. Lets say I was a "bit" impressed.

Prographics

Conssome

Dead Or Alive 2's graphics look quite good although not as detailed as Tekken's. Then you notice just how much is going on and get more impressed as you play. The major difference between the two games is that in DOA2 you are also able to damage part of the background scenery, jump down floors...

Already word of mouth has turned Dead Or Alive 2 into a must see, it's combination of Soul Caliber quality beat em up action and innovative new features making it one seriously hot ticket to martial arts heaven.

“Not as Good as Soul Calibur”

published 25/04/2001

ProGood Game

ConsNot as Godd as Soul Calibur

I loved Soul Calibur and still do and I don't think I will ever find a game to rival it. But having said that this game comes close. Dead or Alive 2 was a bit of a benchmark. It was the first game to appear on both PS2 and DC and of course many comparisons have been made. I have played it on both...

Dead or Alive 2 from Tecmo hits the Sega Dreamcast with a vengeance! This immaculately conceived fighting game will leave players breathless and begging for more. 9 arenas, each interactive and fully 3D rendered; 12 fighters, including some truly lovely ladies; cinematic cut-scenes between each...

This game is simply stunning. I cannot express how gorgeous it looks to anyone reading this. At first I thought the intro was just rendered cut scenes, but half of it was the actual in-game graphics!

If you love Soul Calibur then read on because I have played a game that is so much better, the game is Dead or Alive 2. I have had the game on import for a few weeks and I cant stop playing it.
