Various Gameplay Tips
- Tip 1: As with any fighting game, you should experiment with different characters to find which one suits your playstyle best.
- Tip 2: Dead or Alive 5 uses a kind of rock-paper-scissors formula in which strikes trump throws, throws trump hold, and holds trump strikes.
- Tip 3: If you're new to the series, play story mode first and jump into multiplayer after you finish it. The practice will definitely help.
- Tip 4: Take some time to learn combos. Button mashing only gets you so far in Dead or Alive.
- Tip 5: Spend some time in the training mode to hone your fighting skills.
- Tip 6: Don't worry too much about intricate combos when you first start off. Just commit to memorizing a few simple ones and work your way up from there.
- Tip 7: Use directional inputs for blocking instead of buttons, as it gives you more freedom to follow up with attacks/counters.- Tip 8: Kasumi and Kokoro are good characters for beginners.
