| I'm A Fighter
Dead Or Alive the series has been quite a series for fighting game fans.

Yes I love Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat there is just something about Dead or Alive that just makes you want to come back more.

For Dead or Alive 5 this game shows that DOA is not going to stop and with a tagline "I'm A Fighter" who wouldn't pick up this game?

Dead or Alive 5 features returning fan favorites Kasumi,Ryu Hayabusa, Brad Wong, Eliot, Tina Armstrong, Helena Douglas, La Mariposa, Kokoro, Bayman, Christie, Bass Armstrong, Jann Lee,Leifang, Zack,Hitomi,Ayane, Hayate.

Along with two new characters making their debuts Mila: An up-and- coming MMA fighter who has scored spectacular victories all over the world. She has been a big fan of Bass Armstrong since she was a child and her dream is to take on her idol in the ring.

Rig: The foreman for DIG, an off-shore oil platform owned by DOATEC. He has been working on the platform from a young age and claims to have no memory of his family or real name.

Personally I like Mila between the two new comers.

The game story mode is pretty fun to play however the story line can be a bit confusing if you're don't pay attention. It feels like a movie during the story mode and that's a good deal for it.

Now onto the game itself. You can get Dead or Alive 5 on Playstation 3 or X-Box 360 no matter what system you get it for you will be in awe by the game.

First off the graphics, the series has been known for superb graphics and this game in my opinion takes the cake, The game is super beautiful. The attention to detail for the level designs and the lighting effects make it feels like you're watching art come to life. The character designs are excellent it's like they were model from real life people it gives them more realistic look.

The arenas you fight in are some of the most original and creative ones you have ever seen in a fighting game.

The controls for the game will need to be look at before you pick this game up to play because the Dead or alive series is not known for it's simple button mashing you have to be ready to go when you learn the controls nonetheless the controls make the game a real fun.

The sound effects and music are superb even the menu gets you pump for playing the game and the voice acting in the story mode is very well done with some real talented voice work they showcase their voice work in this game.

The game play is very addicting as with many characters and special modes to chose from you will spend hours playing this game with your friends and online. The tag mode is where the game make it more fun

However the game does have a few issues mostly the AI can be cheap at times also the story mode can confuse you at times.

But for real Dead Or Alive 5 is a top notch fighting game with beautiful graphics, tight game play and hours of fun you can't go wrong.

I give Dead Or Alive 5 an 8 out of 10
