Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 is like going on vacation at home. I know Sims 2: Bon Voyage is like that, but this game has pretty sexy girls. This is DOA version of Mario Party. You have jet-skiing, pool hopping, beach flags, butt battle, tug of war, water sliding, volleyball and stuff you play at a casino, like poker, blackjack, roulette, and slot machines. I’m good at poker and blackjack because I’m from the South. We played card games alot. And one more mini game I’m good at is jet-skiing.
The jet-skiing in this game does look simulator to Wave Race 64. It’s run like Wave Race 64, but you’re using a 360 controller instead a N64. Volleyball is hard to play. If it was like Mario Tennis, I would be good at it. There was a Volleyball game for PS2 used the Mario Tennis gameplay. For this game, look more to NBA live because of how the camera is. If you are playing volleyball, you need a partner. It is hard to get a partner in this game. The easy way to get a partner is giving them gifts. You get them something what they like, but if you received a gift from them, and it is the same thing, then they didn’t like it. I suck at pool hopping. Pool hopping is jumping on flowing square blocks that has colors. You have color correctly or otherwise wont get any points. I am really slow at it, but I’ll get used to it some day.
The soundtrack in this game is great. Most of the music in this game sounded like from the late 90’s. I wish I had soundtrack for this game. DOA series are good for soundtracks. This game has English voice actors. DOA 4 wasn’t in English, but in this game it is. Some of the voice actors in this game sound more from DOA 2 from the PS2. The graphics are looks same as DOA 4. This game is fun to play and know this game does have two player mode, but I don’t know why reviewers give this game a low scores for this game. This game is like a 8/10 for me. It is a good game, but one problem is this game is short. That’s it. I’m keeping this game with my 360 collection and I’ll play it again. I don’t know why reviewers gave it 5 & 6’s. If DOAX3 comes to the US, I would get it as well.
