Dead or Alive Xtreme has never been shy in what it’s about. Even the commercial for the original release on Xbox was blatant about being a sexual tease. Due to that reputation, it’s received frequent criticism of being nothing more than a boner generator. I haven’t played them myself, however most who do seem to disagree. It’s often praised for the volleyball aspect as well as the pseduo-dating sim elements.
But what if you wanted a boner without actual gameplay, as well as all the hooks of a free-to-play title? Koei Tecmo has got your back with Venus Vacation.
To give some perspective before I even start talking, I’m a horrendously casual fighting game fan. My idea of strategy is learning a few short combos, guarding occasionally, and then panicking and slapping my hands all over the controller as I get beaten down. So if you’re looking for a hardcore fighting game fan’s opinion on Dead or Alive 5, I won’t be fulfilling that here.
