Dead or Alive : Xtreme Beach Volleyball
Set on Zack Island, DOAX features eight bikini-clad girls from the highly successful Dead or Alive 3 series, including one new character, Lisa. The girls are all invited to enjoy a holiday on the idyllic island but when they arrive they find they are competitors in a beach volleyball tournament. But it's not all about volleyball; players need to accomplish various activities on the island as part of their game mission and can personalise the characters with over 30 outfits but should tread carefully as the advanced AI in the game means every decision you make has an effect. There is even a fully functional Casino on Zack Island you can try your luck at!
Features of Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball include:
The fantastic graphics you expect from the Dead or Alive series.
The environments are beautifully rendered, with gameplay set in the morning, afternoon and evening - gamers will be amazed at the realistic lighting effects on this paradise island.
Incredibly intelligent characters.
The players in "Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball" aren't just good-looking - they hide some advanced AI which means every decision you make has an effect. And be careful which character you pair with who - there are old rivalries at play and you might find that co-operation is not the name of the game!
Gamers will be asked to accomplish activities on the island map as part of their game mission to win the beach volleyball games. They can also compete in Main Mode and Versus Mode to win. The way you play earns you money you can spend on the island or gamble in the island's casino.
Gamers can personalise their characters in many ways, from choosing new outfits and nail colour to deciding whether or not they want their characters to have a suntan or not, but make your choices wisely - the characters might not like what you buy them and refuse to wear it.
Gamers experience the incredible realism of Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound as the environmental sound effects and music bring the sounds of the seaside and an exciting sporting event to life.
DOAX also boasts an amazing soundtrack with songs from Bob Marley, Christina Aguilera and Spice Girls, amongst others. And players who like to play volleyball to a different beat can rip their own music to create a custom made DOAX soundtrack at the local DJ Station.
