Summary: A solid, balanced fighting game that can get boring if your used to flashy stuff like Marvel, Soul Calibur or Tekken. The mechanics are great, nice characters and has a "easy to learn hard to master" style of gameplay.
Summary: I love this game, the fighting mechanics are the best ever (IMO) and the control scheme works well enough that anyone casual or hardcore can play and enjoy. The graphics are a bit dated but thats understandable, the sound is typical, I personally have had no problems online (other than getting my...
Summary: After reading several reviews especially the one in EGM I was eager to purchase VF5. I ditched fighting games during the Sega Genesis era while I devoted my life to Madden and Tony Hawk for many years. Thanks to VF5 for the PS3 I'm happy to return to the arena. Gameplay is super smooth and fast.
Summary: I am more of a Tekken fan per se, but I wanted a next generation fighter for the PS3 and this one is pretty much it. I have DOA for the 360 and was never really all that impressed with it as a fighter but I have heard that the VF series has always been great.
Summary: This game is good for 19.99. But my biggest complaint is the no joystick support! I don't like using a dpad to play fighters. The graphics are great and gameplay is fun. Fans of series will love this one.
Summary: This game is great overall. As a long time fan of Tekken, I must admit I came in very skeptical, even hated the game after the first hour or so, however, after playing it more and giving it a legitimate chance, I'd recommend it to anyone.
VF5: A great fight with just a bruise or two to show for it.

Summary: SEGA's Virtua Fighter carries a legacy that only the blue hedgehog can rival. Akira, Wolf, Sarah - you've seen them in one form or another, whether it's the blocky polygonal models from the original or the immaculately detailed PlayStation 3 ones. Does this legacy fall far from the tree?
Summary: This was the first game I bought for the PS3. I have loved the Virtua Fighter series more than any other fighting game since I first played the original Virtua Fighter in arcades. For just $20 it seemed like a great deal (and it was).
