Dead Or Alive 2: HardcoreDOA2 is good, it has got great graphics for it's time and nice scenery, breakable scenery and multi level stages, even the characters are nice to look at...but that's it. In terms of game play, the game is not that great. It's too fast to even be able to make out what the characters are doing. You find yourself button bashing cos the moves all look the same anyway and it's also the best way to win. The story is too short too and the lack of character backgrounds make the game feel pointless other then a quick play with your friends. All in all, it's not horendous however if you prefer a serious and realistic fight where knowing the moves are the best way to win then get Tekken 5 however if bouncing boobs are what your really interested in then go ahead and waste your money on this.
