Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown

DarkStation
13 June 2012
  • 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.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is a triple-A fighting game with an iffy price tag (review)

VentureBeat
13 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Yes, this review contains a lot of complaining. We complain because we care. Virtua Fighter 5 is a very good game, and Final Showdown makes it better in many ways…but it could have been even better than that with just a few reasonable changes.

Virtua Fighter 5

Playstation Illustrated
27 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Virtua Fighter 5 is one of the first fighters to show up on the PS3, but instead of being a game that any PS3 owner is likely to pick up, it is definitely geared towards long-time gamers who have followed the series for at least a couple of iterations. Visually, the system struts its stuff.
