Dead or Alive Xtremeif you're unfamiliar, is a spin-off of the fighting game by the same name that features the same characters, only that they play volleyball and lounge around in swimsuits rather than kick each other in the head.
The game was a departure from the rest of the Dead or Alive series which otherwise consisted of fighting games. It also marked the first game in the series to have a Mature rating from the Entertainment Software Rating Board. The game is set immediately after the tournament in Dead or Alive 3 ended.
Leaving for another day the question of whether consumers have the right to modify video-game software they've legally purchased, a federal judge last week dismissed a lawsuit by California game maker Tecmo against the proprietors and users of a game-hacking website, after the company quietly settled with the two main defendants. Tecmo filed the lawsuit in January in a crackdown on NinjaHacker.

H alf a decade since the release of Dead or Alive 5, the sixth instalment of this well-known fighting game arrives in a world that has moved on in some respects. Dead or Alive 6 is great to play and to behold, but it has an inescapable aesthetic that feels out of touch with the prevailing mood.

It is the narrative sequel to Dead or Alive 3. Unlike previous Dead or Alive games before it, Dead or Alive Xtreme is "a sports game" as opposed to a fighting game, featuring the female brawlers of the series playing volleyball, pool and gambling games as they spend a two-week vacation on a tropical island.
