The Good ol’ Triangle Principle
As in the previous DOA games, DEAD OR ALIVE 6 brings back some of the principle mechanics already known to the fans of the series. One of these is the triangle system, which goes like this: timed holds will always beat strikes, direct strikes are superior to throws, and a skillful throw can diminish any hold. This mechanic creates an incredible level of complexity, as well as adds a fair number of mind-games during the duel.
The New Endearing Abilities
As is a common practice in many other fighting genre games nowadays, the DEAD OR ALIVE 6 game presents its own version to the Special Move Gauge, in-game known as Break Gauge. With the additional special moves at your disposal, the fighting only intensifies. The newly available addition presents three new mechanics: Break Blow, Break Hold, and Fatal Rush.
Break Blow – used for parrying and knocking the opponent on the ground. High-damage attack.
Break Hold – mostly used as a counter-measure. Low-damage attack.
Fatal Rush – a diminishing combo that ends up with a super finisher (a must-try with every character)
