Dead or Alive 4 is a fighting game developed by Team Ninja and released by Tecmo for the Xbox 360 in 2005. It is the fourth major title in the Dead or Alive video game series, its plot following the events of the 2001 title Dead or Alive 3.

Dead Or Alive 4 Gameplay

Dead or Alive 4 features 22 playable characters and many multi-tiered and interactive fighting arenas. There are six modes in the game:

Story Mode, which offers the player to play with the character and learn its backstory.

Versus mode of standard one-on-one battles.

Team Battle featuring teams of characters fighting each other, with a total of eight characters on each side.

Time Attack, where the player must defeat a set amount of opponents in the shortest possible time.

Survival mode, where they player must defeat many opponents as possible.

DOA Online, available via the Xbox Live and similar to the Versus mode.

DOA4 has a number of updates in reference to previous titles. Characters' move lists have been vastly updated and four new characters have been added to the fighting roster, with returns from a couple of past characters as well. The counter system has been tightened, making the window for counters shorter and more difficult to execute, and the amount of damage that counters inflict has been changed.

Dead or Alive 4 received mostly very positive reviews. Douglass C. Perry of IGN called the game "a move in the right direction for the series" and praised the fighting system as "deeper and more sophisticated". Greg Kasavin of IGN wrote: "It's simple: If you like fighting games, DOA4 is for you. Between its great selection of powerful fighters, its terrific action, and its addictive online mode, there's an awful lot to sink your teeth into, learn, and master in this latest and greatest installment in the series."

Dead or Alive 4 has sold 1.2 million copies world wide. The game was included in the Championship Gaming Series and World Cyber Games.

In 2008, GamePro staff ranked it as the 11th best fighting game, stating: "The first new-generation fighter to be released, Dead or Alive 4 still makes a strong case as the best one. This is a fighting game that can stand in the ring with any major series." In 2009, Virgin Media ranked it as the seventh top 20 beat 'em-up of all time. In 2011, Peter Rubin of Complex ranked it as the 28th best fighting game of all time.
