Dead or Alive Ultimate (2)

... and, indeed, Dead or Alive 2 is a rather good game. The immediate differences in graphics and the way the game controlled made us play a number of matches, and we appreciated the way that some levels allowed us to move around and use the arena itself to cause damage to our opponent. Throwing Matt over the edge of the roof was great. Being hurled onto an electric floor wasn't quite as great.

Again, though, the fact that there are quite so many special moves makes the game a little intimidating, and while we were starting to get the hang of counter moves (pressing hold as the other person tried to punch or kick), it still seems that the game would require a lot of time to be invested in it to really appreciate the gameplay.
