Got bored half way through. Looks kind of dated, especially animations
 
edit: ah arcades only at the moment. I guess they can get away with it not looking top notch. but still seems kind of boring.

HERE COMES MY SUPLEX
 
 
Virtua Fighter sucks.

Posted by Ozmiander

why?

Posted by DemiGodRaven

Goddamnit, More Virtua Fighter 5 that won't be coming to the states. 
 
Goh rules.

Posted by Ghostfish

I loved VF back in the day, but good lord, is this being developed for the PS2 or do they only have a $20 budget?  Everything about this looks terrible compared to current standards; stiff, clunky animations, blocky character models, bland, generic backgrounds.  This makes me sad.  :(

This looks awesome and Virtua Fighter 5 is probably the best 3D fighting game, but it's not as flashy or accessable as some of the other games in the genre, so it's not as instantly appealing for a mainstream audience, hence the youtube-level of  comments here.

I'd love for there to be a larger fanbase for the VF series in North America. The only people I played against were my friends who I convinced to buy VF4 a long time ago.  
They stopped playing because it's not something that you can just jump right in to and got discouraged by the game's learning curve.

I love VF, but  

 That's some funny facial expression right there.
Posted by MormonWarrior

Why on earth does this game sound so terrible? I remember it looked great when it first came out, but the sound effects sound just like the original on the Saturn! What the heck...

Posted by Napalm

Dude, why does this game look like ass? I assumes they would just take the Virtua Fighter 5 assets and engine and build off of that.

Posted by Terry_Bogard

I don't get what all the hate's about.. I thought it looked pretty cool. 

Posted by skrutop

I never thought I'd want to go back to Street Fighter after switching over to Tekken, but SF4 has removed my interest in 3D fighters.

Posted by nail1080

VF is still the king of fighters IMO. Still play VF5 a lot, keeps me coming back much more than SF4

Yea that could be a credible statement if not for the fact that Virtua Fighter was released in 1993 with DOA coming out in 1996 and KOF in 1994 so it is more like DOA and KOF looked at Virtua fighter to model its characters. 

I just remember my first home console game and system being the Sega Saturn and spending hours playing VF. Kage Maru was my favorite just based on the fact the dude is a ninja.
Posted by Aleryn

Haha, guys... it's a fighter.  You should be playing for the great fighting system, depth, fun factor.  Not the graphics.  It is great when they look amazing, and they often do nowadays... but really, ENJOY THE GAMEPLAY!
 
Looks great, hoping for a console version with online versus!

Posted by oddjob

I used to like this series, now it just bores me.

I know VF was before them, I just meant the looks (character's) and fighting styles just look like them, or maybe they look like it? I'm not up to speed with VF but are all these character's the reoccuring one's or new ones?

Here comes my suplex!

Posted by TheBlackPigeon

This better hit consoles, and it better hit stateside. 
 
If it doesn't, I will give Sega the frowning of a lifetime. HRRRMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

Posted by onimonkii

vf5 was really fun in single player, shame the ps3 version never got online play, as limited as it was on 360

Posted by RJPelonia

Wow. I know the original VF5 is only three years old, but the graphics are looking pretty bad now. Hope they at least update some of the textures.

Posted by ProfessorZombie

Looks like... nothing special 

Posted by MordeaniisChaos

Meh... Way to have the dude levitate above the wrestler's arm. I hate when games don't make an effort to have attacks actually HIT the other guy. Come one guys.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

Man, even the HUD looks like ass. 

Posted by JJOR64

Fighting game with Sumos = instant buy for me.
 
I have the 360 version of VF5 and I really enjoyed it.
 
The game looked good for it's time, but the graphics in this new game do look dated now.  They could have made the graphics a little better.  But hey, it's all about the gameplay.

I agree with you.  It has a very steep learning curve which makes it one of the hardest fighters out there to play.

"Here comes my suplex." - fucking LOL

Posted by SonicBoyster

Too much ADD in the Giantbomb community if people can't watch video game footage anymore without falling asleep.
 
Virtua Fighter isn't supposed to look like Tekken, the animations aren't supposed to look like SFIV.  The game is supposed to depict fairly realistic martial arts moves and it looks perfect to me.

Edited by Artemis_D

Why not just a new Virtua Fighter?  This would've excited me more two or three ago but, now, it's been so long since Virtua Fighter 5... why should I care?  I want a new VF!

This isn't a new game. It's pretty much an update. But they will guaranteed sell it at a new game price(I'd say 99% chance it's coming to consoles). From what I read they added better lighting and textures on some stages, rebalanced a lot of characters, and made the customization less limited(?) plus it's easier to get rarer items now(and items in general). I reeeeeally don't want to reward this kind of behavior from a developer, but Jeffry McWild is my boy, so I gotta buy this. 
 
I wish they would actually put this effort into making a new game, because like everyone has said, graphically this pales in comparison to any 3D fighter out there now. I'd like to see this series become more realistic kinda like UFC, but keep the over the top characters, personalities, and fighting styles. Seeing such beautiful and fluid animations and then seeing a character get juggled is really lame and wierd.

Fighting games have HUDs?
Posted by KayinAmoh

The graphics look dated? That's not much of a surprise - the base game is four years old. These updates are to refine the gameplay and rebalance characters, usually leading up to a badass sequel. 
 
When VF6 comes out, that's when you'll see any graphical improvements they have lined up - at launch, every VF has been every bit as good looking as its contemporaries.  
 
And seriously, VF has balance nailed. I find it hard to play other fighters as a result - the system that AM2 craft is infinitely rewarding, and spamming powerful attacks doesn't work on anyone other than an absolute newcomer.
