(PlayStation 3 Review) Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown

The Entertainment Depot
6 July 2012
  • Summary: Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown is one of the finest fighters on the market. The base game is a steal at $15, and the complete set, with all downloadable content, is still a good deal at $45. The download-size limitation required some sacrifice, namely Quest Mode.

GamesRadar

  • Excerpt: Even five years after its console debut, playing Virtua Fighter 5 is like endeavoring to learn a new language. It’s simple enough to come to grips with the basic building blocks, but mastery only comes with hours upon hours of diligent practice.
  • Pros: The low price, Decades worth of depth, The fluidity of the fighting itself
  • Cons: Losing to button-mashing when you first start out, Trying to pull off one-frame combos, Hearing Lion Rafale taunt you

  • Conclusion: Virtua Fighter’s presentation is pretty week.  The game lacks its own original style.  Fighting games usually have some sort of strong connection with their art style, be it the brutal brawls of Mortal Kombat or the high speed anime fights of Blaz Blue.
