When I first learned about the Dead Or Alive series, it was while perusing the pages of Electronic Gaming Monthly Magazine; the editors were openly salivating at the overtly 'jiggly' nature of the female fighters in the game. This was a few years back when the first game hit the arcades and was then ported to the Sony PlayStation.

Nearly a decade later and dozens of other entries into the genre, things have changed quite a bit. In Tecmo's newest Dreamcast fighting game, Dead Or Alive 2, the gender of playable characters has shifted dramatically to a near equal five to seven ratio; still in favor of males.

On the surface, Carrier appears to be nothing more then a pure rip-off of Capcom's groundbreaking Resident Evil series. Resident Evil defined many elements in what is now known as the survival-horror genre and Carrier isn't shy about mimicking it. Almost all the setups are near identical. In Carrier, players take control of Jack Ingles and Jessifer Manning (only after beating the game), a guy-girl duo part a special investigative unit known as SPARC.
