Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is the definitive edition of this entry to the fighting game with the full roster and updated graphics. However, the PC port lacks many of the key features such as online multiplayer and inferior graphics to the console editions, so purchase with caution.

Critic Reviews for Dead or Alive 5: Last Round

Dead or Alive: Last Round doesn't have the contortionist special moves required to master its Street Fighter rival, making this the more immediately accessible game by some margin. But neither does it have the mascots of Capcom's stable (it's telling, perhaps, that the most recognisable characters here are borrowed from Ninja Gaiden and Virtua Fighter). But at its deeper levels, it's an equally engaging and challenging proposition as its rivals, a quick tempo test of dexterity and reaction that, at its best, transcends the mildly grotty aspects for which it is best known.

As competent as the last two updates but still a fighting game held back more by its creepy designs and boring characters, than its purposefully simplistic action.

Though the novelty has worn off, the action-packed battles remain among the most enjoyable and accessible in the fighting scene

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is the final version of a game released in 2012. That means it includes three years worth of available DLC, but it also means the graphical improvements weren't as grand as they could've been. DOA5 is still a solid fighter, but a lack of ambition, focus on DLC, and severe bugs in the Xbox One version means it's not amazing.

While the new additions and the costume collection are nice, the strongest value of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is its clean 1080p presentation on new-gen consoles where it performs cleanly and admirably.

Fundamentally, many of you may have been playing Dead or Alive 5 for the last two and half years now, perhaps with a sojourn into Dead or Alive 5 Plus on your Vita, before upgrading to Dead or Alive 5: Ultimate along the way. For the stalwart fan, it's possible that Last Round contains just enough additions and upgrades to make a purchase necessary, especially when you consider its budget pricing, but for the less committed it may not be enough. Meanwhile, for those yet to play Dead or Alive 5, Last Round is the most complete and attractive version of an enjoyable, albeit ostentatious, fighter despite a few minor issues.

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is a fantastic victory lap for the fifth generation of the series, offering an extremely impressive lineup of fighters, costumes, and stages that will provide endless fun in both single player or with friends.

A solid, extremely accessible fighting game, Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is certainly worth adding to your collection if you're a fan of the genre.
