Join the bikini-clad girls of Dead or Alive for some sandy fun in Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball. This game is stacked with action-packed gameplay and lifelike graphics and animations. Gear up and get ready to help the Dead or Alive girls spike, set and dig their way to victory.
The women of Dead or Alive are back and better than ever in the first Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball. The extreme action is transported from the fighting ring of Dead or Alive 3 to the beach. The game lets you compete in two different modes, the main mode or the versus mode. It's time to get physical with the ladies as they set, spike, and kill their way to the championship title on the tropical beach resort, Zack Island. The more points you receive on the court, the more you can customize your characters with over 100 swimsuits and accessories. At night, Zack Island becomes a haven for nightlife activities including an island casino, a movie theatre, and a radio station with all your favorite sand and surf tunes.

Very sharp and clean. All the environments are well detailed and the Girls are as well. They stay clean even when watching cutscenes and playing volleyball. Sand is even is shuffled and moved when you play.
There are songs already on the soundtrack that you'll either love or hate, but it's nice that you can make custom soundtracks by loading music from the hard drive. Sound effects and voices are there, but the characters speak only in Japanese. This may annoy some, but there are subtitles. However, they don't show during the volleyball games, so unless you're a Japanese language guru, you'll have no clue what they are saying.
This is very simple. There are basically just two games, the pool hopping event, that just uses one button. Then there is the volleyball game itself. Controls are easy to use and responsive. Playing volleyball takes a bit of getting used to, but isn't too hard. In fact, you only have to play it once if you want. Since you can get through a vacation without even playing any games. There are MANY items to collect and get, which will require some work. Especially if you want to get the more revealing swimsuits, but it can get boring quickly for some. The game plays the same regardless of what girl you pick to use.
It may not appeal to some, but it still can provide some amusement. It's really up to the player if they want to spend lots of time to aquire most of what the game has, and if your looking for something deep or very engaging, then you'll probably want to look at something else. But if you need a quick game (or a little fanservice), than this should appeal to you.
-Beautiful backrounds, and beatiful beaches, and stuff
-Decent vollyball system
-A bunch of stuff to buy
-Casino can be cool
-Custon soundtrack Allright!
-The girls are just hot, beautiful, well, the game wouldn't be the game without em
-Great game for relaxing or chillin
-Way too short(Same day I played it, same day I beat it)

-Game is pretty easy, only now and then I get competition
-This game just left me feeling it could have been a whole lot more
-Replay value is all up to you
This game has it's up and downs in a battle of tug-of-war, but this game still makes a pretty decent vollyball game. Sometimes I end up staring at the wemon, and forget to hit the ball back, or I'm listening to my soundtrack, and I mess up. This game is not as bad as I once thought it was, if you're a die-hard DOA fan, get this in your collection, If you want a game for relaxing this is it, if you want a good volleyball game, rent this first, if you;re looking for a game with a lot to do, you might wanna skip this game.
The point that needs to come across is that there is a game here. The volleyball element is simple to learn and hard to put down. controls are as simple as positioning a girl, then using either a hard button press or a soft one to determine what action to take. Earning money, gambling, and yes buying bathing suits is all actually integrated. If you put a girl in a color or suit she doesn't like, she won't play as well. Put her with a teammate she hates, you you'll suddenly see a drop in performance. You'll find yourself scruitinizing over what teammates you want, and maybe balancing what bathing suit seems to increase performance with what suit you'd rather see on a girl.
It's simple, it's fun, and it's actually a game.
Now onto the other half, the gorgeous women. It's no secret that most people will buy this game for "other" reasons. Girls sunbathe, girls hop, girls straddle tree-trunks in gratuitously obvious sexual pandering. This game is NOT for kids. But for guys (and girls) the actual gameplay is more than enough to warrant play by itself, and the sexual overtones only add to the interesting blend. Yes, the gratuitous cut-scenes can be skipped if you'd rather not watch.
If you only care about the girls, a 3-day rental may exhaust your urges. If you actually want to try the gameplay, this is a solid choice that will keep you interested for some time. And yes, the multiplayer mode is the best for any volleyball game I've ever played. In fact, perhaps the best for any sports game. Each side gets ample camera time, and the camera works well. Very nice.
Is this worth buying just for the girls? Yes.
Is the gameplay worth it? Yes.
Can Tecmo be forgiven for this overt attempt at pandering to a male audience? I think so.
+beautiful back drops
-camera angles sucks
-you cannot adjust camera angles
-weak sound effects
-not very exciting
Overall this game is below average, it tried to implement lots of good ideas, and the casino games was a nice bonus, but the negative points affect it badly.
