Summary: At first glance the game looked like a great buy, fun modes to play, unique characters, and arenas. But if you really want to get the most out of it you need to learn awkward controls, huge chain combinations to pull off a 3 or 4 hit combo, no juggling feature, a virtually useless training mode, and a small rooster of characters.
Summary: Honestly I don't know why I bought this game... I knew it was a sega title and should have figgured the legacy of 16 bit carries on to the ps3 platform. The actual fighting is what kept this game at a below average otherwise I would gave this a poor rating. The player (me) has no interest in the game after 15 mins of playing unlike the MK series you can see blood and more adult actions rather than some kiddy play.
Summary: This is a weak attempt at a fighting game. Do not even compare this to Soul Calibur or Tekken because this game is not on the same level. Yes, the graphics are slightly better, but that does not say much about the physics or gameplay. All it is is an arcade game on a consol. It Lacks online play or any plot. It also lacks counter attacks and the depth that Dead or ALive brought to Xbox. DOnt get me wrong I am a fan of PS3, but I just bought this game and I'm selling it.
Virtua Fighter 5 (PS3): Virtua Fighter. Virtually No Sense Or Structure To The Fight ...
8 January 2010
Summary: I like fighting games & have always enjoyed the 3d fighters like Tekken & Soul Calibur. I think they are great fun & do reward skill over button mashing as long as you learn the moves. However I think they do this without being at the expense of the newcomer. I first decided to give this game a try as I didn't have that many games for my PS3 & HMV were selling it for £3.98. For that price I thought that I would give it a go.
Pros: Great Grapics. Lots Of Characters. Different Fighting Styles For Each Character. Create A Fighter
Cons: Not Really Much Fun. Practise Doesn't Help You Improve. Mash Away & Hope For The Best.
Summary: I thought I'd get this game instead of Street Fighter because it was so much cheaper. However I'e got to say there's a reason for this. The game play isn't nearly as good, and it feels like you're playing a PS1 game instead of a PS3 one...
Summary: Virtua fighter 5 was segas answer to namco's Tekken series. Well the fight between the two is more of a walk in the park. To put it in the shortest term possible virtua fighter is in a different league, but way below ground. I thought i would give this game a trial as there were no real fighting games available. Well what a waste of money time and effort. If your a fan of the series then it probably hits the right buttons, but for me it was just ugly.
Pros: Erm, Erm. Nope
Cons: The title says it all , virtua fighter 5, yes 5, if its good make more.
Virtua Fighter 5 (PS3): Why Virtually Fight When You Could Learn It In Reality Faste ...
14 September 2008
Summary: I got this game free with my console and to be honest i'm glad i didn't pay for it. I turned on my shiny new PS3 and put in virtua fighter 5 to be greeted by the familiar SEGA logo in glorious high definition and thought WHOOOOAAAA THIS IS AWESOME!. Follow that through to the mesmerisingly good intro video to the game and it's arcade style menu layout and i'm thinking i'm in heaven here. Then i played it.
Summary: First things first, i've always been a Tekken fan. SoulCalibur too but that has weapons so i don't put it in the same fighter bracket. I understand that many people regard the Virtua Fighter series quite highly and as a seasoned gamer i thought it was about time i expanded my beat 'em horizons. I've enjoyed many, many hours of Tekken with my friends sat around a play station. But VF5 wasn't enjoyable at all.
