The final word in fighting entertainment - Dead Or Alive 5 Last Round!.
Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is not trying to prove anything and offers generously fun to the fullest. It has beautiful girls, lots of action, quick battles... what else can you ask for?
Owners of the PC version are faced with a difficult choice — either wait for the promised online multiplayer and enjoy the fact that it is a decent port of an excellent fighting game, or berate Team Ninja that Last Round lacks some odd features.
I'm glad to see the DOA series come to PC, but this port is a bit shaky at launch. The core gameplay is good, but no online play (for about three months when a patch comes out), a mixed graphical presentation, and other oddities make this hard to recommend right now -- might be best to give it some time to simmer.
It's a very sloppy port and even 4K doesn't improve the old fashioned graphics. But that doesn't mean it's a bad game, it's still a rich and easy to learn beat-em-up. Those are rare on PC.
On one hand I welcome Tecmos decision to premiere this beat em up franchise on PC. But on the other this is just half-hearted so I wonder if they just want to cash in before Mortal Kombat X arrives.
It might have benefited Dead or Alive 5 Last Round to be issued into Steam’s Early Access program as, in its current state, is a lacking experience that’s below its console counterparts.
Without online multiplayer, all the stages and possessing visuals that are inferior to the console versions, Dead or Alive 5 Last Round manages that rare and horrible thing of making PC players feel like second-class citizens to their console brethren and in doing so, succeeds in heavily tarnishing what is actually a pretty incredible fighting game in the process.
