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. This game is also lot deeper than it initially appears, even if that’s not saying much. Excellent tutorial and practice options. Some fun power blows. Purposefully shallow combat is accessible but quickly becomes uninteresting. Last Round itself doesn’t offer much that is new and the fetishised character designs still lack personality. Having played both previous versions of Dead or Alive 5, I was a little bummed to find how little had actually been added to the game. As far as I can tell, the Story mode is the same as it’s ever been, boasting a ridiculous tale about clones and ninjas and what-have-you. Cutscenes do little to set the stage and mostly boil down to odd banter that leads into a fight. Those fights are frequently followed by additional fights that don’t even offer a reason for taking place. Then again, who really plays a fighting game for the story?
Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is the final hurrah for this iteration in the series. It's the culmination of 3 years of slight upgrades and DLC releases, with a graphical boost to boot. If you love Dead or Alive 5, this is the best version, even if it lacks extensive overhauls to the graphics and gameplay. I still found enjoyment here, despite the crazy DLC, the excessive fanservice, and the game-breaking bugs in Xbox One version. If you're all about Dead or Alive's specific brand, I'd recommend trying Last Round Core Fighters on PS4 to see if the series' latest is right for you.
