2.00 NEWEST FEATURES
====================

Compared to the Prequel/First Game Dead Or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball(XBV)
brought out on the original XBOX in 2003, Dead or Alive: Xtreme 2(X2)
has new features in it, increasing the joy at playing and reducing
the focus on Beach Volleyball.

----------
Mini-Games
----------

As noticable by the Title, DoA: Xtreme 2 does not focus on Beach Volleyball
like it's predecessor, but on the friendship between the girls.
From a total of 42 suggested Mini-Games for X2, this game features
seven Mini-Games at which you all can win money.

Beach Volleyball - Like in XBV you play in 2 vs 2 teams and whichever
                   team gets 7 points first wins.*1

Pool Hopping     - Also from XBV, you jump from one floating platform
                   in the pool to another, either alone or racing against
                   another girl.*2

Jet Ski Race     - New; Accessable from the start. You control a Jet Ski,
                   each with different stats, and gain money by winning,
                   performing stunts on the Jet Ski - standing or jumping
                   from a ramp and passing little Yellow & Red Balls to
                   gain a temporary turbo boost.

Zack Waterslide  - New; Buy Ticket for 150.000 Zack-Dollars at Sports Shop.
                   Your girl will be in a ring while sliding down,
                   it's your job to maneuver her so she doesn't
                   fall off-course and get disqualified.*3

Beach Flags      - New; Buy Ticket for 100.000 Zack-Dollars at Sports Shop.
                   Race against another girl to catch the Flag at the other
                   end of the beach.

Butt Battle      - New; Buy Ticket for 150.000 Zack-Dollars at Sports Shop.
                   Bump the other girl into the water by using your Hips
                   and Butt.

Tug-O-War        - New; Buy Ticket for 100.000 Zack-Dollars at Sports Shop.
                   Feint or Pull the rope and try to get the other girl
                   into the water.


*1 - You have to lead by at least 2 Points to get a Match Point;
     the game can go up to 9 - 9 Points,
     whichever team does the 10th point then, wins.

*2 - If you press a Button the same color as the next platform (Red, Blue,
     Green or Yellow) you get a Bonus for that. Press the next button
     for the next platform (same color or not) for another bonus.

*3 - A lot of people get their girl off-course at the corcscrew about
     10 - 12 seconds in; the "trick" is to speed up a little bit
     before entering the Corscrew; same goes for the loop later on.


-----------
POLE DANCES
-----------

When you're in the Casino, playing on the Christie-Slot-Machine and win
the jackpot 9 times, Zack will give you a gift which contains the
Secret Ticket.
Use this ticket and choose a girl, who will perform a Pole-Dance
themed to "My Grave" - the song used in Christie's Dead Or Alive 4 Ending.
The Ticket is useable only once - if you wish to see a different girl
perform, you have to win the ticket again.


---------
PHYSIQUES
---------

The (in)famous Breast-Physique.
Very different from XBV, X2 has changed not only in the better-graphics
department, but also in the physiques.

Now, the girls' breasts have individual gravity fields - one breast
might jiggle or jump up and down while the other stays completely still.
They also jiggle very exaggerated - sometimes they stop in mid-bounce
or continue to move several seconds after the girl has stopped moving.

There is an Age-Option in the Game and it is still said, like in
the other games, that increasing or decreasing the Age might affect
the amount of jiggling.
This is yet to be confirmed.


--------
TANLINES
--------

Unlike XBV where the girls got tanned throughout the vacation,
except when using Sunscreen, in X2 you have to watch out a bit.

The girls still get tanned - except when using Sunscreen,
but this time they could end up with tanlines.
They have an outline of the first swimsuit after they change into
a different one, unless you used enough Sunscreen.*4

Some of the girls like it to get tanned, others prefer to remain
rather pale.
Of course, you are the one deciding, so you can buy Sunscreen,
which lasts two Sessions, or Tan Lotion, also lasting two Sessions,
on the girls, to control how much she tans or lack thereof.

*4 - Example: Ayane is wearing Echo - Schoolswimsuit - and a few days
     later afterwards she changes into Christie's Diamond - mere strings.
     If she used no Sunscreen, you will see Echo's
     form still "on" her, until she tans again.

---------
LANGUAGES
---------

Under the Options Menu you can choose between the Original Japanese Voices
with English Text or you can try out the English Voices with English Text.

The girls have a little variety between them.
Christie has a British Accent and Tina now sounds like she's from Texas,
although it's sometimes hard to understand what she says.

For example, Helena who is french (although in French she'd be Hélène)
now has a french maid accent.
Example: "Jhust 'old sis" (when serving a Ball)


=============
2.01 NEW GIRL
=============

While Team Ninja said in an interview that there would be two
new girls in X2 playable, Kokoro - a young Geisha In Training - is
the only new girl in the game.
Nikki was rumored to be playable in X2, but she only appears in the
cut-scenes alongside Zack.


=============
2.10 - KASUMI
=============

Name:        Kasumi
Age:         17 (N/A In Non-Japanese Versions)

Favorite Color: Milky-Pink
Favorite Food : Strawberry Millefeuille

Hobbies:      Fortune Telling

Special Item: Kasumi's Favorite Hairribbon (Open; Braided; Ponytail; Tied)

Strength : *
Technique: *****
Defense  : ***
Jump     : *****
Speed    : ***

Overall:    As you can tell from her Volleyball Stats, she's a weakling.
            In the beginning, spiking a ball might seem hard but you get
            a feeling for it later on.
            Because of Kasumi's Stature and lacking Strength, she'll often
            be knocked down by Helena, Hitomi or Tina.

Recruiting: Kasumi can easily be recruited as your Volleyball Partner;
            Kasumi herself can recruit everyone, except Ayane.



=============
2.20 - HITOMI
=============

Name:        Hitomi
Age:         18

Special Suit: Bear
Special Item: Hitomi's Favorite Hairband (Equipped Or Not)

Strength : ****
Technique: *
Defense  : ***
Jump     : *
Speed    : **

Overall:    Hitomi is strong, that's one of her best features in
            Volleyball. But that would make her a very good Partner
            for weak Characters.
            Hitomi's spikes or sometimes even normal hits can knock
            an opponent down.

Recruiting: Hitomi is very easy to recruit, she's a Good Girl From Next Door.
            Hitomi herself can recruit everyone.


===============
2.30 - LEI FANG
===============

Name:        Lei Fang
Age:         19
Birthday:    April 23rd

Japanese Voice: Touma Yumi (Yui - Fushigi Yuugi)

Special Suit: Panda
Special Item: Lei Fang's Favorite Hair Ornament (Tied Up; Schoolbraids; Open)

Strength : *
Technique: ****
Defense  : *****
Jump     : ****
Speed    : ***

Overall:    Lei Fang, like Kasumi, is very weak and the chance of her being
            knocked down by Hitomi, Helena or Tina is very high.
            But she is the fastest in getting up after being knocked down.

Recruiting: Lei Fang is very easy to recruit, because she likes everyone,
            although she seems to not like Tina much.
            Lei Fang herself can recruit almost everyone, too.


===============
2.40 - CHRISTIE
===============

Name: Christie
Age: 24
Birthday: December 18th
Nationality: British

Japanese Voice: Mitsuishi Kotono (Sailor Moon - Sailor Moon) 
English Voice : April Stewart    (Mjrn - Final Fantasy XII)

Favorite Color: Black
Favorite Food : Tomato Juice

Hobbies:      Driving
Special Suit: Panther
Special Item: /

Strength : ***
Technique: **
Defense  : ***
Jump     : ***
Speed    : ****

Overall:    Christie is an all-round character who has enough strength
            to knock people down and speed to dash for a far-off ball.
            She's a good substitute for Lisa, if you do not wish to
            have her as your Partner.

Recruiting: Christie as a Partner can be a bit hard to recruit,
            but it's managable if you give her the right presents.
            If you are playing as Helena, do not try to recruit Christie,
            the same goes if you are playing Christie.
            Christie herself can recruit the other girls just fine,
            except for Helena.


=============
2.50 - KOKORO
=============

Name:        Kokoro
Age:         16 (N/A In Non-Japanese Versions)
Birthday:    December 1st
Nationality: Japanese

Japanese Voice: Kawasumi Ayako (Chidori Kuruma - Ayashi No Ceres)
English Voice : Kathryn Feller (Nancy Dufour - Valkyria Chronicles)

Favorite Color: Orange
Favorite Food : Japanese Fruitsalad

Hobbies:      Playing the Piano
Special Suit: Cassis; Citron; Shiba
Special Item: /

Strength : ****
Technique: **
Defense  : ***
Jump     : **
Speed    : *****

Overall:    Kokoro is an okay, almost an all-round character, but her
            technique - and therefore aim - is not very good.
            It may take you a while to get the fine tuneing onto her
            aerial spikes.

Recruiting: Kokoro is easy to recruit, sometimes you might want to
            wait a bit before asking her to become your Partner.
            Kokoro herself can recruit everyone.


=============
2.60 - HELENA
=============

Name:        Helena
Age:         21
Birthday:    January 30th
Nationality: French

Japanese Voice: Koyama Yuka     (Jinny Golding - Marmalade Boy)
English Voice : Karen Strassman (Miyuki Takara - Lucky Star)

Favorite Color: White
Favorite Food : Blanchemange

Hobbies:      Walking her Dog
Special Suit: White Cat
Special Item: / (Although her Ribbon changes color with each swimsuit)

Strength : **
Technique: ***
Defense  : ****
Jump     : ***
Speed    : ****

Overall:    Like Christie and Lisa, Helena is a good all-round character.
            Her strength may seem weak, but she is able to knock
            an opponent down with a well-aimed and well-spiked ball.

Recruiting: Helena is easy to recruit, but waiting a day or two to check
            her friendship-notes might be a good idea sometimes.
            Helena herself can recruit everyone, except Christie.


===========
2.70 - TINA
===========

Name:        Tina
Age:         22
Birthday:    December 6th
Nationality: American

Japanese Voice: Nagashima Yuko (Tsubaki - Naruto)
English Voice : Kate Higgins   (Saber - Fate/Stay Night)

Favorite Color: Sapphireblue
Favorite Food : Seafood

Hobbies:      Cycling; Sport Games
Special Suit: Black Cat
Special Item: /

Strength : *****
Technique: **
Defense  : *
Jump     : *
Speed    : *

Overall:    Easy to see, Strength is Tina's only good point, which
            would make her a really good partner for a weak but fast
            character.
            Most of her spikes will knock down the opponent.

Recruiting: Tina can be a bit hard to recruit, since it might be
            a bit hard to find enough of her favorite things.
            Tina herself can get anyone as a Partner, although she
            can have a hard time with Lei Fang and Kasumi.


===========
2.80 - LISA
===========

Name:        Lisa
Age:         21
Birthday:    July 20th
Nationality: American

Japanese Voice: Sakamoto Maaya (Hitomi - Vision Of Escaflowne)
English Voice : Masasa Moyo    (Leblanc - Final Fantasy X-2)

Favorite Color: Red
Favorite Food : Cherrypie

Hobbies:      Surfing
Special Suit: Leopard
Special Item: /

Strength : ***
Technique: ****
Defense  : ***
Jump     : ***
Speed    : ***

Overall:    Lisa is the all-round character, like Christie, and will
            be your Partner whenever you choose the Tour around
            New Zack Island in the beginning.*5

Recruiting: Lisa is your partner automatically when you choose to get
            the Tour of New Zack Island from her in the beginning.
            Lisa can recruit everyone, the easiest would be Tina.


*5 - The first time you play the game, the Tour is mandatory.


============
2.90 - AYANE
============

Name:        Ayane
Age:         16 (N/A In Non-Japanese Versions)
Birthday:    August 5th
Nationality: Japanese

Japanese Voice: Yamazaki Wakana  (Ran Mouri - Detective Conan)
English Voice : Janna Levenstein (No Information Of Other Voices)

Favorite Color: Purple
Favorite Food : Glaced Marrons

Hobbies:      Beauty Treatment
Special Suit: Racoon
Special Item: Ayane's Favorite Bandana (Equipped Or Not)

Strength : **
Technique: *****
Defense  : **
Jump     : *****
Speed    : **

Overall:    A fast and well-aiming character, Ayane will definitely
            want one of the all-round or really strong characters.
            The best position to have Ayane on the beachfield is
            in the middle of the field.

Recruiting: Ayane is probably the hardest to get as a Partner, since
            she's a loner and doesn't like anyone very much.
            If you are playing as Kasumi, don't waste your time on
            trying to get Ayane as your Partner very soon.
            Ayane herself may have a hard time to get a Partner,
            but funnily enough she can easily get Kasumi as her Partner.


=================
3.00 ZACK & NIKKI
=================

Name: Zack

Japanese Voice: Shimada Bin  (Soron - Tales Of Legendia)
English Voice : Khary Phaton (Cyborg - Teen Titans)

Appearances: Zack is only seen in the beginning and ending cutscene of X2.
             Although he used to have a slight interest in Tina,
             he is completely loyal to his beautiful girlfriend Nikki,
             after whom he named the prettiest Beach on (New) Zack Island.


Name: Nikki

Japanese Voice: Koyama Yuka   (Jinny Golding - Marmalade Boy)
English Voice : Kari Wahlgren (Raine Sage - Tales Of Symphonia)

Appearances: Like Zack, Nikki only appears in the beginning and end cutscene
             of X2.
             She may look like a little doll, but it is said that Nikki
             has a very strong will.


======================
3.10 - SUGGESTED TEAMS
======================

These teams are mere suggestions, they do not in any way tell you that
you have to use these.
If you have a team to suggest that isn't listed in it,
please send me an e-Mail with the Girls' Names and your reason
why they would make a good team.
Please nothing like "They look good together" or something like that.

Kasumi/Ayane/Lei Fang - Hitomi

Hitomi would be a good balance to these three girls who are fast,
which is something that Hitomi lacks, and can pass the balls while Hitomi
spikes them across the net and onto the field.


Tina - Hitomi

Both are very strong, but not the fastest, so it might be a bit hard
to catch a ball in time that went a far way.
But both are strong and could continouesly knock down the opponent.


Lisa - Christie

All-round characters who would catch a far ball fast and be
able to spike it across the net in no time.
A good team if you are new to the game and don't want any
disadvantages to worry about.


Lei Fang - Kokoro

Kokoro has enough strength to spike a ball and catch it,
while Lei Fang is more the defensive part of the team.
Good teamwork and set up spikes are the key.


Ayane - Kasumi

Both aren't the strongest, but fast and good at aiming the ball.
Kasumi would do best to defend at the net while Ayane should
spike, because she's a bit stronger.
A bit unstable, but still managable.


========================
3.20 - VOLLEYBALL COURTS
========================

On New Zack Island are four places where you can play Volleyball,
two of them beaches, and relax.
You can also find other Mini-Games at most of the Courts.

Nikki Beach      - At the south of the Island, this Beach is the most
                   beautiful one and is named after Zack's girlfriend Nikki.
                   You can also play Beach Flags here.

Tranquil Beach   - At the north side of the Island is this little Beach,
                   quite tucked in and almost invisible. Very few people
                   come here, making it easier to relax and have a quiet
                   vacation.
                   You can also play Beach Flags here.

Brilliant Jungle - Right in the middle of the Island is this jungle
                   where there is hardly any sunlight, so it's a good place
                   to be away from the sun.
                   You find the Waterslide here.

Bass Island      - A little island located to the south-west of New Zack
                   Island, this little and pretty place is covered by
                   the tide most of the day, only accessable during midday.


==================
3.30 - GIFT GIVING
==================

In this game, you mostly have to focus on the friendship level between
the girls. The more a girl likes you, the more likely she'll agree
to be your partner for Volleyball or her enthusiasm during a
Volleyball Match with you will increase.*6

There are two kinds of options you can choose to give a girl a gift.
You can either give it to her through the Hotel or Directly.

Before you can give a gift, though, it has to be wrapped.
At the Sports Shop, you can get it wrapped for free,
while at Zack Of All Trades you will have to pay a certain fee
to have it wrapped.

Each present has a certain effect on each girl, ranking from absolutely
loving it, to liking it and down-right hating it.
Some gifts they do not like they will accept, though.

In the Accessoires Shop you find sunglasses, hats, shoes and nail polish
with which you can change small details on the girls.
In Zack Of All Trades are several items as well as food and drinks,
these are the things you definitely want to give the girls, because
they are their favorite things.

Careful!
Food and Drinks, as well as Flowers, will go bad/wither away after two
sessions.

Example: You bought a Tomato Juice for Christie in the Morning, but
         couldn't give it to her by evening or before nightfall;
         the Tomato Juice will have gone bad and it will be harmful
         rather than helpful in getting Christie to like you.

*6 - If you have Lisa as your default partner, you don't have to shower
     her with love gifts, a like gift or two a day will work just fine.

-------------
HOTEL SERVICE
-------------

At night, when you return to your Hotel, you can choose to "Send A Gift"
to one of the other eight girls.
Some say it's best to be in the same Hotel as the girl you want to
give a gift to, but you don't have to.

---------------
DIRECT APPROACH
---------------

When you see a girl you want to give a gift to, choose "Give a Present to .."
and you will see a cutscene with the girl.
Depending on how much she likes you already, she'll either just accept the
gift or she will open it in front of you.
The present will be rejected and given back to you right away, if she
opened it in front of you. Otherwise you might find your gift sent back
to you the next morning or night at the Hotel.


=======================
3.40 - GIFT SUGGESTIONS
=======================

A few suggestions on what to give to which girl,
because each has her own taste of things.
The clue to find gifts that they like lies in their favorite color,
food and hobby.

Example: Helena loves white, white food and is very elegant, so she'd
         naturally prefer a Lace Parasol over a Leather Bag

Keeping these three things in mind, you should have no problem
with giving the right gift to the girls.

I will not list everything the girls love or like, I will merely
list some things that are helpful.

==================
3.50 - SUIT GIVING
==================

To get certain Achievements (ex. Two friends with Kasumi) you need
to collect the swimsuits of so many girls, including your own.
Sometimes it may take a long time to get even your own girl's suits together.

The Sports Shop sells the swimsuit collection of the girl you are currently
playing as (ex. Tina's) and the swimsuits change each session,
so if you see the Taygeta in the Morning, it might be gone in the Day Session.
But maybe you want to let Tina wear a Christie suit or see Hitomi wearing
a suit of Tina's.

Before you even think of giving suits as gifts, you have to make sure
that the girl you want to gift has a good friendship with you.
At least 2-3 notes, or else she will not open the gift in front of you.

Also, you have to make sure that the girl is in a good mood.

Example: Tina wants to give Sirius to Ayane - give Ayane a "like" Item
         in the Morning and later on in the day the suit, because Ayane
         hates mornings and is more likely to reject something.

You can tell by the way their little avatar-self is facing,
right now I haven't figured out which way each girl faces when in
the best mood.

Of course, even if the girl is in her best mood and likes you alot,
she can still reject a suit - usually the reason is that she hates the suit.
You will have problems with getting all girls into the Venus suit,
because they all actually hate it.

You can use the Sign-Out/Gamertag Glitch to make sure the game
does not save the possible Rejection of the Suit.
I personally have never used it, so I can't really tell you perfectly
how it goes.
But go to YT and check for Shinobi558, there's a Video about Suit-Gifting
using the help of that glitch.


=======================
3.60 - THE GIRLS' SUITS
=======================

Each girl has at least 20 or 30 swimsuits to wear in her collection,
not counting the Special Zack-Only Suits.
Each girl has a certain "theme" to her suits, which you might recognize
or not.

The prices vary, you can guess that the most expensive ones are the
skimpiest ones.
Exceptions are some suits that are actually schooluniforms or schoolswimsuits.

Here I list the suits you can buy, the Special Suits are in the
next section.

3.70 - THE "SPECIAL" SUITS
==========================

Whenever you go to the Hotel at night, 90% of the time you
get a knock on the door and a present from Zack.
When your friendship with the girls is high, you get presents from them, too.

Zack will give you several things,
the first thing is mostly a Camera.
He can give you other things, too, like Accessoires,
but what you really want from him are the Zack-Only Suits.

Each girl has at least one outfit, which are usually animal-themed,
with fitting tails and ears.
It's random when you get the suits, it's said though, that changing
and buying swimsuits on a regular basis increases the chance of him
sending a swimsuit present.

When a girl has more than one Zack-Only suit, they will always be
given in the same order.

Kasumi   - Azalea, Gentain, Rabbit, Thistle

Hitomi   - Bear

Lei Fang - Panda

Christie - Black Panther

Kokoro   - Cassis, Citron, Shiba

Helena   - White Cat

Tina     - Black Cat

Lisa     - Leopard

Ayane    - Racoon


==========================
3.80 - THE MOST EXPENSIVE?
==========================

Some might wonder which one of the girls has the most expensive
swimsuit collection in the game.
Some might automatically think of Lisa, because of the Venus and
the amount of time it might take to get the other girls to wear it, too.

Kasumi   - 14.405.000

Hitomi   - 14.815.000

Lei Fang - 14.960.000

Christie - 12.465.000

Kokoro   - 12.165.000

Helena   - 14.160.000

Tina     - 14.075.000

Lisa     - 12.470.000

Ayane    - 13.870.000

Surprisingly, Lisa's collection - despite the much aggro bringing Venus,
is one of the cheapest, while Lei Fang's exotic collection with
the chinese dresses is the most expensive.

3.90 - QUESTION & ANSWERS
=========================

Q: Is there an "Invisible Suit"/How do I get them naked?

A: There is no such thing, a Code that supposedly make the girls naked
   was an April Fool Joke. There was a Visor Trick, but they still have
   stars over the naugthy bits.

Q: Why are there such WEIRD boob-bounces?

A: Dunno. Someone said that it might've been because it was DoA's 10th
   Anniversary and they wanted to make the breasts bounce like in DoA 1,
   which doesn't quite work - in DoA 1 the boobs bounced in a 1 Heartbeat
   Rhythm and you were able to turn the bounce off.

Q: How do I get a swimsuit from (girl)'s Collection?

A: Be friends with her - when she has 2 or 3 notes or more she'll start
   sending gifts to your Hotelroom, sometimes it's just items, but
   you do get swimsuits sometimes.

Q: How do I get the Venus onto (Girl)?

A: Be friends with Lisa and she'll send it to you sometime OR You ARE Lisa
   and give the suit to the girl you want in the hope that she'll keep it.

Q: Why are Kasumi's, Ayane's and Kokoro's Age listed as N/A?

A: Maybe they didn't think it was "right" to have such sexy 16
   and 17 year olds.
   In the japanese version they were there, though, they just got deleted
   from the other versions.

Q: Why are Tina and Lisa so easy to get as a team?

A: Because they've known each other since schooldays.

Q: I read that Lisa is actually Zack's sister - is that true?

A: I read that, too, but I found no hint that they are siblings.

Q: Why does Ayane hate Kasumi?

A: Because Ayane was always shunned in the village for being a "cursed child"
   and Kasumi was always treated like a princess, not to mention that she
   was better at things, making Ayane always her shadow.
   Hence her DoA 4 Theme "Shade".

Q: Why does Helena hate Christie?

A: Because it was Christie who was set onto Helena to assassinate her, but
   ended up killing her mother.

Q: I thought all girls from DoA 4 were to appear in X2,
   how come Spartan-458/Nicole isn't there?

A: How is it possible to make Swimsuits for a Metallic Halo Suit Of Armor?
