Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round – I remember playing the first Dead or Alive way back on the original Playstation and thinking this might end up being something. At the time, Dead or Alive received more recognition for the female assets than the fighting mechanics. As a Dreamcast owner I was lucky enough to play Dead or Alive 2 first by the second instalment the game was tight and the franchise was now established and known for pushing the limits of the consoles at any given time.
The first time in, Dead or Alive 5 didn’t receive the recognition it deserved. It is easily the most refined entry in the series and had some of the most solid fighting mechanics of 3D fighters in the last couple of years. This time around it is the only fighter on the market for the current generation of consoles which should ensure it receives the attention it deserves.
The Order: 1886 – Just the concept of this game is enough to get me excited! The alternative take on a Victorian London populated with secret ancient orders, monstrous beings and rebels has piqued my interest from the start. With some mixed opinions on the game initially, the game has looked better since with gameplay now looking more polished and the story more flushed out.
