Dead or Alive 6 is a solid new chapter in Team Ninja’s long-running fighting game series that has rarely been satisfied with just being “solid.” All of the groundwork that needed to be built here was built, but upon it was placed a mostly by-the-numbers experience that is too often just as frustrating as it is fun.
The different game modes and amount of collectibles such as trivia entries and wardrobe items provide plenty of single player content, but the main attraction is playing against other people. Dead or Alive 6 shines the most at its most basic level, which is two people just beating the living snot out of each other. Simply put, Dead or Alive 6 is an incredibly fun fighting game, with enjoyment that can be found in each of its several game modes.
Dead or Alive 6 sports a robust fighting system, but the framework around it doesn’t capitalize on that. While the tutorial and DOA Quest mode do a decent job of getting you up to speed on what makes combat tick, the awful story mode does it no favors, and the barebones online puts a damper on what could have been a second wind for the series.
