Helena Douglas has begun the task of rebuilding DOATEC, this time with the aim of using its technology for peaceful ends. She has ordered the dissolution of the Biotechnology Division, the indefinite suspension of the Military Division's Projects Alpha, Epsilon and Omega, and the expulsion of all members of the Donovan faction from DOATEC's offices around the world.
Now in the same position once held by her father, DOATEC founder Fame Douglas, Helena has announced that she intends to hold the fifth Dead or Alive tournament, to show the world the principles and philosophies upholding the new DOATEC.
Team Ninja has pulled out all the stops for DEAD OR ALIVE 5, making this one of the best-looking fighting games on PlayStation 3. Character movements are extremely fluid and the fighters have a more realistic look compared to the anime style of previous games. Subtle details such as clothes getting dirty or transparent with sweat, characters dripping with water and fighters showing signs of fatigue draw you in further and give neat clues as to how you and your opponent are faring.Away from the main gameplay modes, Watch mode lets you view a replay of your match and to take photographs from any position or angle. This is useful for picking up tips on a character’s fighting style as well as being an ideal way to take brilliant action shots that are stored for later viewing in the Album mode.
The Story mode is where the game’s presentation really shines, being fully voiced and stuffed with high-quality, action-packed cutscenes. Fighting game purists even have the option to turn on the original Japanese voiceovers.
With a huge line-up of 24 characters to choose from, no one can complain about the variety of brawlers on offer. They’re all competing in the fifth DOATEC tournament for different reasons, and you’ll have to pay close attention to the Story mode to keep track of their motives, personalities and relationships to one another. There are more plot twists and tangled webs here than in your average soap opera episode!
Of the 24 brawlers, Mila and Rig are brand new. Mila is an up-and-coming fighter with one eye on taking on her idol, retired wrestler Bass Armstrong. Rig is an offshore oil platform foreman with no memory of his real name or his family. There are also five unlockable characters, including the elderly and still dangerous Gen Fu and the powerful, inhuman Alpha-152.
