Team Ninja explained at Tokyo Game Show that the goal for Dead or Alive 5 is to be more than a fighting game. It needs to be "fighting entertainment." The use of highly dynamic backgrounds and environments, mixed with some cinematic camera angles, certainly makes DOA5 look unlike any fighter out there.
But, is it too much? We can't help but wonder how this game will actually play in this extended gameplay clip. It looks incredible--but will it be more fun to watch than actually play?
