The Dead or Alive: Xtreme 2 wiki last edited by Deathawk on 08/05/13 04:17AM View full history

Overview

Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 is the sequel to Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball, and features the female characters of many Team Ninja games. The game revolves around the obtainment of credits. Credits can be earned by playing volleyball, racing on jet skis, and other activities. Those credits can then be used to buy collectible swimsuits, gifts, or for gambling. Xtreme 2 focuses mostly on expanding that collection of swimsuits; a feature appealing to fans of collecting objects like Pokemon, or cars in the Gran Turismo series. A notable controversy exists surrounding the prominent use of scantily clad women as a draw. Unlike the first game, which pitched itself as a valid beach volleyball game that just so happened to feature a cast made entirely out of busty, scantily-clad women, going as far as to hide all other elements of gameplay from marketing, Xtreme 2 makes no pretense about it, openly admitting that the central draw to the game is ogling virtual women in bikinis.

Characters

All playable characters hail from the Dead or Alive series. A particular girl's favorite color, food, and hobby are all information to be considered when making gift-giving decisions; an integral part of winning over a girl's favor and fostering friendships. Friendships are built by giving hobby-relevant gifts in the correct color wrapping paper. Another way to pursue relationships can be found in the minigames scattered about Zack Island.
