The reason I got Xbox Live (seriously!) 0

Virtua Fighter 5 finally brought this precision-tuned fighting series online. Despite Sega's earlier claims that a game this precise, where a single animation frame means the difference between a hit and a miss, wouldn't work online because of lag issues, it is one of the best online time-wasters out there.All of the classic characters from Virtua Fighter return. The two additions to this edition are El Blaze, a luchadore (lucha libre seems to have been the next hot thing for fighting games a ye...

The Original 3D Fighter Makes Its First Online Appearance 0

Fighting games were all the rage back in the '90s, and they're currently making a comeback.   During the previous decade, games like Street Fighter lined arcades.   Many fighting game enthusiasts loved taking Ryu and Ken into battle, but for some people, two-dimensional characters just didn't cut it.    Some of these people were won over by up-and-coming polygonal fighters, like Virtua Fighter.   Virtua Fighter may have moved at a slower pace than what people were used to, but they didn't care, ...

Complex, Concise, and Character 0

First and foremost I have been playing fighting games since Tekken back in the good 'ol days of the Playstation era and the Arcade era, back when people actually went to arcades on a regular basis. I was never really a Virtua Fighter fan at all (I had played it a couple of times on the Saturn and the arcade, but never got into it), however, back when Virtua Fighter 4 came out for the PS2 I decided to give a go. I was, bewildered by the sheer unique complexity of the game comparable to games like...

A great fighting game, but not without some problems. 2

The first Virtua Fighter game I played was VF3 on the Dreamcast, and I absolutely loved it. When Tekken 2 came out it really raised the bar for 3D fighting games, and Sega hit back with VF3 and stole the crown back, with the most advanced fighting game ever made to that point. Since then both series have had their ups and downs, but now while Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection is easily the best Tekken game (I’m posting a review of that here too, where I explain why), I don’t believe Virtua Fighter 5 ha...

Old game play. 0

This must've came out when the 360 did cause the fighters are not impressive. The backgrounds are at least decent. The sound is average and you might as well mute it and why do some fighters talk in Japaneses and others in English? The game gets pretty hard near the end of the Arcade mode to the point of being almost unfair. I really don't like the juggle the fighter in the air cheapness. I found the fighters to to be about the same and quite bland....

Don't be Intimidated. There is Much Fun and Beauty To Be Had Here 0

The Virtua Fighter series has been Sega AM2's crown achievement. The first game not only had at its time the most advanced graphics (of course, they were quickly outdated soon after), but it was the first 3D fighter. And it made quite a difference from other popular fighters at the time, like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. It wasn't just being 3D, it was the amount of strategy and real world martial arts replicated. Virtua-ly (yes, I'll be making this pun throught, deal with it) no button mas...
