I played me some Dead Or Alive Ultimate at a friend’s house the other night. I like DOA3 plenty, but Ultimate is so much better. The graphics are roughly the same quality; there’s some trendy glow and some anti-aliasing and the arenas are more detailed, but that’s about it.
However, the game system puts DOA3 to shame. No more cheap holds and throws. I managed to land something like one hold per three matches, whereas in DOA3 the one who attacks tends to be the one to lose, due to the easy holds. It’s a fundamentally better experience now. An obligatory purchase for my Xbox shelf.
