Newcomer to DOA series and I absolutely loved it.
This fighting game is different from others where button mashing gets you places. The triangular system is simple yet effective, and adds a mental challenge to know your opponent and your character.
Graphics are great - a huge improvement from the past games where they looked like dolls.
The only downfall is that newcomers like myself is likely to have a hard time as the tutorials is barely existent - No idea what is going on and only can find a little bit about this in the manual. I wished the developers put in something like Tekken's combot mode where basic mechanics are explained and can be practised.
