Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the best choice for casual gamers. This is a very deep fighter that takes a lot of work to get good at (even for a fighting game), so if you're just looking for a game to hang out and play with your buddies on a lazy afternoon... This might not be the best choice for you. HOWEVER, if you happen to be an avid fighting game fan who loves learning deep and complicated systems, Virtua Fighter 5 is one of the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Good But.. Gameplay is confusing ( to me) Some attacks aren't the best, And the characters could use some work. Overall, it's awesome. Cool combos, Character costumes, And special,unique moves. So in a one-sentence review I would say good but needs work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Game Is... ...really hard. That doesn't mean it's not really fun, as well. It's very addictive, once you're used to it. Now, on to more detailed descriptions...There are 17 playable characters, each with a unique and surprisingly fluid fighting style. The fighting styles range from Ninjutsu to Drunken Fist (or to be formal, Drunken Boxing) and just about every other solid way to beat something up that you could actually WANT to use in a video game! The Quest Mode is very easy to grasp but, it requires you to create a custom version of any available character, as you can only play Quest using custom characters, not the main versions already available. I don't mean just, change name, suit color, blah, blah, blah, I mean you can completely change the character, right down to the EYE COLOR!!! But, you can't change fighting style (the one downside to this game). You can use custom characters in all game modes! As you play Quest, you can go to tournaments and prove your awesomess as your new superwarrior by beating other fighters, getting cool new stuff, and earning ranks. Also, you can play any tournament, at any time! C'mon. how cool is that??? All in all, I highly recommend this game, to fighting fans and hardcore gamers, alike!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for the casual gamers, still satisfying I got Virtua Fighter 5 two years ago and I still play it just as much as I first. The graphics are crisp and lively but I'm here to talk about the game not how it looks. I'll be honest here, this game is very technical. When I started I tried to do some cool moves and got destroyed. In VF5 button mashing will get you nowhere. Its all about skill, patience and pure luck. There are no special moves, no secret attacks and no 10 hit combos just pure 1 on 1 fighting, with counters, various stances and moves for each character and a very deep quest mode. Although 17 characters isn't much in a fighting game, the sheer uniqueness of each character makes up for it. I have never seen a character in any fighting game use pankration or vale tudo, realistic fighting styles. Overall, VF5 will demand and expect you to know both your character and the mechanics of the game. If you want a challenging realistic fighting game that is great when you put time into it, look no further. Also the customization is extremely amazing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bad version of mortal kombat Less magic effects, less character detail, less interesting characters/weapons. Save your money, get Soul Caliber or Mortal Kombat instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burst Of Fun It was very fun for a short time but I found the variety of characters lacking and it becoming repetitious I got bored very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sega game This fighting game is great. The graphics are good the characters moves and sklls are awesome and The challenges is great. The charaters are good even each onehas a different skill. The special moves of them are really realistic. The grphics are great and the online is very fun. You can make a character but with the same form and look. Also the difficulty is fun and hard but thats is supose to be. The stages are beautiful and really reallistic, and when you are fighting you can fall out the ring or theres a part of a river and you are in a boat you fll in the water like a real person will happen. There are more but im not going to spoiled it. I recommened it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game I used to be a fan of only Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat but lately have started branching out to the other franchises and I'm very glad I did! Virtua Fighter 5 is one of those games that any fan of arcade fighting games should appreciate. The controls are simple at first but you will soon find yourself immersed in layer after layer of depth as the fighting system is second to none as far as realism goes. The visuals are very clear and crisp. You will especially enjoy the rippling water on the stages that have puddles or water around them. The stages themselves are very artfully done, and seem to be just the right size to add strategy to the fighting (some are caged in, and others are left open for 'ring out' opportunities). One thing that really stands out to me on this title is the soundtrack. It is kind of like, techno-elevator music, but it works. It's actually very cool music and it complements the game well. I'm surprised to see this game for such a low price. I highly recommend it. I will say this though. If you don't want to spend a little time learning the complexities of the fighting system here, than you might be better off with an easier game like Mortal Kombat vs. DC (which is also great).
