ok i just bought DoA2 for PS2.. wel until now i just realize it doesnt says Dead or alive Hardcore on the cover.

Are there 2 version of Doa a normal and the hardcore for ps2 ?
if so what are the difference ?

and irc the difference between the dc doa2 and ps2 doa2 hardcore was bayman and tengu as extra chars and cg mode and more costumes right ?

but if there is another ps2 version and its same as dc version than i wasted my money :angry:

wel i can stil return it within 24 hours.. so hope someone knows it..

thx in advance :thumb:

Gamefaqs shows 2 releases of DoA2 on hte PS2, original and Hardcore.
There were 2 DC versions: Original, and LE which added Bayman, Tengu and some costumes.
Compared to the DC version, DoA2: HC had all the features of LE plus extra stages, extra FMVs and further extra costumes. I'd assume that the DoA 2 you have has the same features as the original DC version.

hmmm wel i tested the game.. Wel the intro is slightly different than the DC version the screen were u can select the mode is also different... And the tag map is different. ppl who played DC version know tag is always on that map same as sparring.

Is there a way of instandly know if it has the extra feature ? like the CG option.. i checked its unlocked when u win 5 vs 5 team mode.. wel i didnt got it tho.. does that mean my version is same as DC version ? cos i do notice different maps already..

And seeing so many changes in US version and JP does US has same as EU ? Also if i am able to unlock the CG mode does that mean its like hardcore ? or atleats not same as DC version and has Tengu and bayman ?

also this link http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/code/26352.html
it says anyana costume 8 Oo on the link cid gave it says only hardcore version had 8 costumes... so now im really confused..

To think of it says 5 different chars to unlock CG mode.. hmm i did it with 5 x kasumi Oo uhu il play again 2night >.< il see if anything new pops up.. if not i think il have to bring it back to store...

i really love the Doa games.. not just cos of the girls :heh: the counter and fast gameplay are just awsome :D

but il keep it if it has the extra costumes and extra chars and modes...
also i notice the stores dont even sell DOA2 hardcore.. or atleats i dont see it anymore..

and also OMFG the intro looks ALOT worst than the DC version :???:

and as u notice i make more typos 10ppl together so i hope its understandeble...

/me does a little more research
The vanilla DoA2 for the PS2 was only released in Japan. The HC version should be the only avaliable one in the States and Europe

hmm didnt really understand what you mean with vanilla doa2 Oo u mean normal doa 2 ?

Wel basicly ur saying i got the Doa2 HC version ? Cos yea my version is PAL. And it does contain Tengu and bayman ? and the extra costumes ?

Wel i played some more.. still didnt unlockt he CG mode Oo verry odd >.< it says win team mode with 5 players.. thats basicly do 5 v 5 and win and go to title i asume ? Atleast thats what i did...

I notice there is a Tag train mode to, and extra maps, so this cant be the same version as my DC one.. Altho i havent notice much news yet beside worst looking intro and new maps :D

And control seems to respond a bit slow to.. but nontheles if it has the extra costumes and modes its worth the money :D

Well as long as you're satisfied it's alright whatever version you have ;)

But I assume that IF it is the Hardcore version, it should be mentioned on the box right?
Perhaps Kane can confirm this if he has seen the covers somewhere?

Anyway, I did some cover research myself and I found these:
The first two are from the PAL Hardcore version, and the third one is the front of the PAL normal version. So perhaps this is helpful :)

When I had DoA2: HC on the PS2, the cover looked like the last of the 3 pics you posted.
