From the Developer: The girls of Dead or Alive are back and better than ever in the first fantasy sports simulation, Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball for the Xbox video game console. It's sure to have your heart racing with beautifully rendered graphics and action-packed gameplay.
The extreme action is transported from the fighting ring of Dead or Alive 3 to the beach. But this time around the girls are throwing on their bikinis to go head-to-head in the most outrageous beach volleyball game you have ever seen! The game lets you compete in two different modes, the main mode or the versus mode, which accommodates up to four players at one time. 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.
This is no ordinary beach volleyball game, the more points you receive on the court the more you can customize your characters--with over 100 swimsuits and accessories to choose from. At night, Zack Island becomes a haven for nightlife activities including an island casino, a movie theater, and a radio station with all your favorite sand and surf tunes.

Reviewer: Alex Lawson from Good ol' Nebraska
This game is completly derrived from sex appeal. If this characters from doa 3, were replaced by girls with clothes on, this game would suffer terribly. But thats not to say its not fun. When you are playing your friends, its very fun,but more of a social aspect, but to just play against the computer, get very old, very fast. Once you get past the girls with the bikinis and large breasts that bounce when they jump, the game instantly dies.
Ridiculous., November 9, 2002
Reviewer: Lisa Becker from Ellisville, MO United States
As soon as I saw this, I began laughing.
I have played and own Dead or Alive 3 (x-box), which, in my opinion is a good game. It's somewhat short, but the graphics (environments, specifically) are great. Now, I'm a woman, thus the "cute girls" in this game don't really do anything for me. DOA 3 is good, but this is completely ridiculous.
The calendar that goes along with the game is also utterly ridiculous. But funny.
You guys need to get a girlfriend.
great game!!!!!!!!!, November 8, 2002

Chris's Game Reviews Speical: The Naked Truth, November 2, 2002
Reviewer: Christopher Williams from Gloucester Va
It is finally coming to Xbox. The Game that we've all been waiting for. Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball. I have so much info on this game. It's a battle royal full of women jumping around and playing volleyball. If you get enough money, you can even go to the casino and gamble. You can also go to the shop and get some new clothes for your girls. Hitomi would have ooh la la with me if I told her to I'm so hot I'd attract her. You can also use character customizations to make them naked. It all started when DOA 3 ended and Zach went to a casino. He earned so much that he bought his own private island. He sent invitations to the girls' for what they expect to be the DOA 4 tourney. They find out that Zach is ogling them and they spend their vacation playing beach volleyball. I'll promise you a DOA 4 review when it comes out. My next review will be Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon then it's gonna be Brute Force. So brutal!
Hot Babes or Wot!!!!!, October 26, 2002

Reviewer: ajcar1992 from Out on the beach
Unlike all the other five star writers I do not give this 5 stars JUST because of the super awesome babes (because they are cute) especially with the graphics. And seriously this is also supposed to be a serious fantasy volleyball sim/rpg. This is a must by for babe lovers or hardcore beach volleyball lovers, or just the relaxing, low pressure rpg.
Have You seen the Video for this Game?!?!?!!?, October 13, 2002
Reviewer: bigpimpjimmy from Las Vegas, NV United States
Please pick up the Nov. issue of the official XBOX magazine. It has an awesome video for Ninja Gaiden and a wonderful Dead or Alive Extreme Beach Volleyball music video. One word. Delicious. OK, OK, OK. Besides all of the half naked women running around, I do believe this will be a great game. A great game that revolves around half-naked women, but great nonetheless.
Story: What a great story!!!! With his DOA tournament winnings, Zack goes to Vegas and hits it big gambling, and with his newfound wealth, he buys an island. He then sets up the lovely DOA ladies to come to his tropical island getaway by making them believe a DOA4 tournament is being held there. When they show up and realize there is no tournament, "Hahaheehee" they laugh it off and spend a summer on the tropical island playing volleyball in bikinis. Delicious. But that's not all. There's a new character named Lisa who joins in on the fun. Yah!
Gameplay: Tecmo makes great games and this will be another solid title. It will have solid volleyball action, playing out with simple button actions. It will be very user friendly. But don't let that fool you. So was Tennis 2K2. Easy to learn, but the real joy will be in mastering the game. Timing bumps and sets will be vital in becoming a DOA Xtreme beach volleyball champion. The multiplayer will be great too. 4-player volleyball is going to rock. And the one player story/career mode will actually be pretty deep. You can build relationships with other potential volleyball team partners. You can buy a potential partners a gift, and she may wear it during a match or even buy you something in return. Sounds like the sims. But regardless, it will be an important part of the game for strong relationships off the court will lead to better tag play in the matches. Sega had a simialar aproach early this year with Beach Spikers. (Which by the way is a solid volleyball game also) Also, on the relationship aspect, past DOA grudges will come into play, and rivals will not play as well when paired together, so you'd better know your DOA!
Features Features Features: This is where the game gets good. 100 swimsuits and 50 accessories to choose from. Playing games will earn you points to buy new items. Just like Tennis 2K2 on Dcast and PS2. There will be tons of patterns and styles to choose from or even use your artistic skills to create your own! (This feature may or may not be in the final version) See-throughs here we come!!!!! Ok what would an Xbox be without the use of the hard-drive. Not only will the game have a 20+ song soundtrack, but you can use your own custom soundtrack! (Make sure to pick up the "Top Gun" and "Cocktail" soundtracks with your purchase) And you can record volleyball matches to the Xbox's hard drive, then watch them later or show them to your friends! "Remember that time I destroyed you in DOA Xtreme Volleyball? Don't remember? Well, I have it right here!!!" Hahaha.
Not just Volleyball going on: Not only will there be extreme volleyball going on, but extreme partying. You can explore Zack Island's night scene. The island casino features many favorites like blackjack, roulette, slots and poker. An arcade even lets you play a DOA 3 mini-game. Speaking of mini-games...
Mini games: Lifeguard drill, a dance competition, and a beauty contest. My my my. Delicious.
This game is just that: Delicious. I really don't have to tell you there will be half-naked girls running around on the beach, because you probably already know. But aside from that, It will be great game. Pick it up.
Great Concept!, October 13, 2002
Reviewer: A gamer from Baltimore, MD USA
This game looks like it's going to be one great simulation. What is a good, beach volleyball simulation without the women in bathing suits to go with it? Top notch quality from Tecmo with the extremely realistic character models that remind you of the cinematics of Final Fantasy X.
A must have on everybody's Wish-list.
Hmmmm, I dont really know about this game, October 3, 2002
Reviewer: A gamer from United States
I am pretty concerned that Tecmo suddenly changed from fighting games to volleyball games. I know the only reason for this game is just for the girls in the bathing suits. I like the idea of them making Ninja Gaiden, that looks cool, but I don't really trust this game to be that much fun, probably might last you 2 weeks or so, but after that you would most likely leave it on the shelf. If you like seeing girls in bathing suits then buy this game.
HOT HOT HOT FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, September 23, 2002
This has to be the best sports game in history. Aside from the sleek, slender, super sexy babes, the game looks like it just plays well. You will love this game, and you'll love the babes in it even more!!!!!
