(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. While its absence is a downer, as well as the lack of supplemental material (e.g., extra video tutorials), the tradeoff is a bargain price that’s hard to beat.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown review

GamesRadar
26 June 2012
  • 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. However, once you’ve conquered it, you’ll be privy to a new level of understanding.
  • 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

Game Over Online
11 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown: Complete Edition is the definitive version of one of this generation's best 3D fighters and is a must, with a caveat or two, for anyone who played the original version. It's especially true if you own the PS3 version since you can now play the game online. It's something 360 owners were treated to, but the original PS3 version lacked, and it's a shame too since it added a ton of replay value to the game.

  • Conclusion: Missing out on VF5 on whichever console you tie your allegiance to would be to deny yourself one of the finest titles of this generation so far. Given the perfection of the fighting engine and the leap above all titles that have come before it, you could easily argue for the game to be a contender for the best fighting game of all time. Let’s just hope that translates into sales figures and a legion of new fans to keep the series afloat in the future. Count me in.

Virtua Fighter 5 Review

5 November 2007
  • Excerpt: There is no genre in videogames that has as many subdivided fans that are undoubtedly convinced that a particular title, or line of titles, is the pinnacle as 3D fighting games. Some titles have much more fleshed out stories, some have extra modes that play like old-school beat-em ups, and some are, simply put, much more accessible to new players.

  • Summary: Virtua Fighter 5 is a hardcore fighters dream, whether you’re a fan of the series or not.
  • Pros: Hundreds of different moves to study., Comprehensive, realistic fighting mechanics., Lengthy Quest Mode.
  • Cons: No online functionality., Single player feels slightly tame compared to other fighters., Definitely not your typical "pick up and play" brawler.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: If we reviewed the arcade game as an arcade game it would be ten, because it's the best fighting game ever made. It's had a decent stab at console specific features here on PS3 and does what it does admirably given the development timeframe, but leaves room for several improvements. But even if it had no console features at all and just an arcade and versus mode, I think it would still score close to a nine.
