DescriptionDead Or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball takes all the female fighters from Dead Or Alive 3, sends them to a tropical island named Zack Island, and pits them in volleyball matches.
At the outset, you choose from one of eight characters, all female. When you first play the game, the new character, Lisa, introduces you to a few aspects, and joins you for your first volleyball match. All matches are two-on-two, with the first team to seven being the winner.
Each day is comprised of four sections; morning, day, evening, and nighttime. There are several different areas you can visit; separate beaches and jungles to challenge different teams, an accessory shop, where you can buy accessories such as sunglasses, a sporting shop where you can buy new bikini's, a store called "Zack of all Trades" where you can buy miscellaneous items, such as a gun, lipstick, lotion, etc., a radio station, where you can select what soundtracks to listen to, or listen to your own, and the hotel, where each day ends.
Once nighttime comes around, you can visit the casino. Once there, you can play one of four games; Blackjack, Poker, Roulette, or Slots. Playing games can earn you money, but can also strip you of money.
There is a large variety of items to collect, and some items you must buy to entice someone to join your team. If a character's favorite color is black and her hobbies include cars, then you would buy them a black steering wall to pursuade them to join you.
Volleyball matches earn you money (if you win) and consist of three basic moves; serve, spike, receive. If you lose too many games, you're partner may ditch you. Win enough and her loyalty will increase.
XBV includes a multiplayer feature that lets you play against a friend.
