Summary: After playing VF4 on my PS2, I had to make this one of the first games I got for my PS3. Unfortunately, they only upgraded the graphics, not the gameplay. It is basically more of the same old thing, if not less. Most of the moves are the same as the last one, with little new ones.
In my opinion, not very good & won't entertain for very long. Don't spend a lot on it.

Excerpt: 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.
Below average fighter, with some nice effects/graphics.

Excerpt: 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.
Summary: I bought this game because everyone gave it 5 stars, and there weren't really many other games out on the PS3 at the time. Time for a bit of balance I think. If you are a big Virtua Fighter fan then this game will probably make you soil yourself (read the other reviews).
Summary: Visually pretty, the main mode (quest) is repetitive. This silky looking game is very much linear with a total lack of depth compared to say Soul Calibre, Dead or a live or tekken. What seems to be a very basic button mashing arcade game has been poorely ported over, hardly expanding on the original...
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.
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: I only reason I bought this game was because my friend recommended it. Iv'e heard of virtual fighter but Iv'e never played it so I was really surprised when I started playing it. I didn't like how it had no story during arcade mode. The graphics for that time were good,apart from the backgrounds.
