Volleyball

Helena and Hitomi playing volleyball in DOAX2

Beach Volleyball is a team-beach game. Like other variations of volleyball, two teams of two players, separated by a high net, try to score points by grounding the ball on the other team's side of the court. In the Dead or Alive series, beach volleyball is the primary gameplay element of the spin-off Dead or Alive Xtreme series. In Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation, it is implied by Momiji that the sport, alongside rock climbing, tree climbing, and a Nimba run (which entailed running a single lap around the island) acted as her and Hitomi's training regiment. In addition, Zack indicated to Misaki that beach volleyball acted as a religious ritual to the Venus Island's god, although Ayane implied that this had been a hoax on Zack's part.

GameplayEdit

Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach VolleyballEdit

In the first Xtreme game, play is done primarily through the use of two buttons, one designated for spiking and blocking, and the other for receiving or setting. As many of the actions happen automatically (e.g., jumping up to spike the ball), the game forces the player to focus on timing; a poorly timed press of a button results in a weak hit or a smash into the net. While it is possible to manually direct one's computer-controlled partner towards or away from the net, she will generally move to cover whichever area the player has left empty. The game is one of the few to make use of the analog sensitivity of the face buttons on the controller, with a softer touch allowing one to barely hit the ball over the net. Winning a match provides money which can be used to buy swimsuits and accessories, either for oneself, or as gifts to bestow upon the other women.

Dead or Alive Xtreme 2Edit

The gameplay has been modified in Xtreme 2, to make the game slightly more difficult and to add variety. While there are still only two buttons necessary for gameplay (to pass/block and bump/spike), greater manual control is required as, unlike the original, girls will not automatically maneuver themselves into the best formation. In the online mode, two players can compete against each other, each having a computer-controlled partner. Lastly, the camera has been slightly modified to address the criticism that the one in the original game moved erratically or too frequently.
