Dead or Alive 3 is better, but this game is still a fantastic experience!

The Good

First of all, the team battle mode is fabulous, just the fact of choosing 5 characters and battling in a team is addictive. Some of the moves in this game are fabulous, proving the great technology and graphics we have in today's games. The story mode has nice stories for each character. The versus mode is pretty great too.

The Bad

The game is almost flawless, but I think the story mode is far too easy to finish, and since that's the main part of this game, it doesn't feel good to play for 10 minutes and then say i've finished the game.

The Bottom Line

The result: An exciting fighting game with very smooth 3D graphics. The only thing that they could make better: Make the story mode tougher, they have already achieved that actually in DOA3 for the Xbox.
