Correction to my last reviewOkay, so when I first picked this up I was really upset but it was my fault because I am more used to Tekken's style so the gameplay upset me and overall I RAGED and gave it a bad review. Now Im here to make up for that.
Virtua Fighter 5, now this is actually a GOOD fighting game, I cant say its bad. I configured my controls to what was more comfortable for me (I used a controller instead of Fightpad or Fightstick) and I gave it another go. I was satisfied indeed, the game plays very well and it gives you a more realistic feel. I play as Jacky Bryant, which is my favorite and easy to use character. The game feels great, balanced, and fast. It looks better than its previous installment, and for it to have been an early title it is very gorgeous with great looking arenas, stunning visuals just pop out. Though there is no online muliplayer you can play against a local friend and fight in a tournament mode where you fight CPU of all different levels, which actually has a lasting appeal.
Virtua Fighter 5 is very, very cheap... it deserves a higher price but if you are looking for something quick to play that is actually fun pay the 5 bucks for the game it wont disappoint. I think its just a way for the game industry to let Sega fall since Sonic is slowing failing as a mascot. But Virtua Fighter, BUY IT!

the 1st and still best 3d fighterSorry to all the tekken fan boys out there who decided to bash this game. 1st this was the original 3d fighter. I do like tekken but it is no where near the fighting game this is. VF has always offered superior graphics, the characters are all modeled well and don't look like sloppy cologes pasted together like the tekken characters. VF character movents are fluid very life like its like controlling a real life martial arts master. Tekkens characters are robot like and slow so the controls of many of those characters is clumsy at times its missing fluidity VF has. Vf has depth in the controls you can puul off simple combos to complex combos that flow like a Katz from true martial artist. Tekken system is not so deep some combos that don't flow very well. If you listen to the VF bashers on this page who coincidently reccomend tekken than you'll be robbing yourself. I own tekken and my copy of VF see a lot more play. True Vf don't have a huge roster but do you want quality with VF or quantity of tekken it has a lot of characters that feel the same. As of writing this VF 5 Final Showdown is out and once again SEGA smashed the competition.

How can VF2 and 4 be Better than 5?I first played vf2 on the PC and after that i had always respected the VF series then a couple weeks ago i bought 4and 5, 4 is tough but it's manageable with practice but Virtua Fighter 5 is ridiculous! you would have to a super computer attached to the back of your head to keep up with the CPU moves, arcade starts out easy but gets harder and harder with each battle you win, and by the time you get to the final stage the average player might have to retry 15-22 times depending on your skill level. the quest mode is just another version of arcade.
*This game has nice graphics don't let that fool you
*It has a Character Customization mode, but you'll probably lose so much that you won't earn in money to buy anything.
I believe this game is designed to take peoples money, whether it's in quarters at the arcade or from a swipe from your credit card at the checkout.
*The Bottom Line is: YOU MUST KNOW HOW TO PLAY BEFORE YOU PLAY!
