A great leader was killed at the end of the 20th century. His name was Fame Douglas, and he was renowned as the sponsor of the legendary Dead or Alive World Combat Championship. Since his death, and in the absence of his charisma and leadership, the world has become chaotic! Yet something appears to be transpiring. Amid this chaos, it is announced that the "Dead or Alive Championship 2" will be held. However, Douglas's passing has taken with it the purpose and significance of the tournament, even worse, the promoter of "Dead or Alive Champion 2", who is fond of conflicts and jealous of the string, is responsible for Douglas's death. The new promoter is more than a corrupt mastermind, but a man of pure evil. His involvement in the tournament has brought a sense of terror to the world, resulting in the infamous Tengu disaster that occurred at the end of the 20th century. The climax of the disaster is about to begin with a roaring battle! Written by Anthony Pereyra <>

A great 3d-fighter!
19 April 2001 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

"Dead or Alive 2"(DOA2) and "Tekken Tag Tournament" are the two finest fighting-games you can buy for your Playstation 2, and I recently picked up this game after having enjoyed the wonders of "Tekken Tag Tournament" for a month. "DOA2" is a rather different type of game, than "TTT", but if you`re a serious videogamer, you need to own both games. This game has looks to die for, and the graphics are better in this game, than in "TTT". The pace of the game is also very fast, and it was nice of the developers to include a 60 Hz option in the European version of the game, which means that it moves just as fast as the American version, and not as slow as other European games. I love the interactive backgrounds of this game, and this is a feature that "TTT" has not exploitet. "DOA2" proves to be the 2nd best fighter for the Playstation 2. "TTT" remains superior, due to lack of characters and moves in "DOA2".
