Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball

6.8

Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball is a spinoff of the Dead or Alive fighting game series. The game sees the women of the DOA games vacationing on an island after being lured there under the false pretense of fighting in the next tournament.

Pros
  • Almost admirable in its dedication to an incredibly thin premise
  • Clearly recognizes that what titillates is not merely the nude but the suggestion of nudity, a truth run roughshod over by fans who modded full nude models into the game and were then sued by Tecmo
  • Volleyball gameplay apparently pretty good actually
  • Allegedly can be played with one hand
Cons
  • As a young child I went to an Electronics Boutique with my father to purchase a video game and this title was playing on one of the demo kiosks at extremely loud volume, making it impossible to ignore. Thus, my father was given the impression that modern video games were very different from the PAC-MEN of his youth, an impression I would characterize as unfavorable. Neither of us spoke on the return walk to his car and we would never speak of the incident again.
