Summary: If you are into fighting games this one is very good. The graphics are outstanding, moves look real, takes time to get the moves down. Overall most will be happy with the game, those who like a story will be slightly disappointed.
Summary: Now that Virtua Fighter 5 final Showdown is available on PSN and XBox Live for $15 I would not recommend getting this game. VF5FS is the superior version, with 2 new characters, stages, and many ways to customize your characters ( if you buy the Costume packs) it is still an entertaining game without the costumes. but this game is a physical disc, while VF5S is a download only game which make or break a deal for some people.
Summary: Virual Fighter 5 is your standard fighting game. This is another sequel in the line of the VF series. You may pick a fighter and go toe to toe with either the computer or a person in the verses section. If you are in to hitting controller buttons as fast as possible or planning out your attack routines, this is a good game for you. Graphics are pretty good as well as the sound.
Summary: really not alot changed (except 2 new guys , the gay luchador is pretty awesome ) if you just want to be able to play the old game on a new system with good graphics you wont be disappointed at all , maybe now they can make an updated version and he can have cake and ice cream :}
