This game has so much to offer, firstly the graphics are among the very best available on the console (even better than Soul Calibur for me). The fighters all look and move fantastic and the backgrounds are multi layered meaning you can knock your rival off a bridge and then carry on the fighting on the beach below! The sound is excellent with plenty of meaty sound effects and catchy tunes.
Dead or Alive 2 also has a fantastically simple control method using just 3 buttons, this means that pulling off signature moves is much easier than rival games such as the Virtua Fighter series.
Overall I would say this game is a must buy for fans of the genre it is easy to find and usually costs less than a tenner.
