It is great to see this fighting franchise back in a bit more serious manner. Let’s hope that upcoming DLC content won’t ruin this with a couple of hundreds of swimsuits and fetish fuel costumes and that this game will continue its long road into non-gimmick fighting games.
So what does Dead or Alive 6 have going for it? You’ve got fluid animations, smooth movement, the ease of picking up and playing, along with the necessary depth to attain mastery as you hit counter after counter. Combat never feels stiff nor clunky, and, outside of exaggerated physics and teleporting ninjas, it’s as realistic a take as you can find in a 3D battler. But can it stand out? Well, it’d probably need the exaggerated physics and teleporting ninjas in the first place.
Dead or Alive 6 makes a strong case for the franchise’s fundamental combat by making it easier to understand what sets it apart from other fighters, other than its infamous “jiggle physics.” The story campaign is disjointed but it and the other training modes serve as effective instruction for getting new players up to speed for online combat quickly, and the new Break Hold and Break Blow moves give you a way out even when you seem locked into an endless juggle of doom.
