  • Excerpt: The first things you’ll notice are the improved graphics and the new characters. Though the graphics in the original were fantastic with plenty of amazing effects they suffered from an intense case of “the jaggies” making all the characters look serrated and ugly.

  • Excerpt: Just when you thought VF4 couldn’t get any better… In March of 2002, SEGA amazed us with the Playstation 2 release of Virtua Fighter 4. Building on the existing engine, SEGA now presents Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution.

Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: Just having a number of gameplay options available does not make a good game. A game must have the most basic necessities of gaming – control, graphics, music – to be considered great. Wakeboarding Unleashed does an excellent job of meeting these basic requirements. Control, while a little on the loose side, is very easy to master and does not hide any frustrating glitches. For some unfamiliar with the basic principles of wakeboarding (ie.

  • Excerpt: ended up winning the "game of the year" award from me. As surprising as it is, I chose a fighting game to represent my choice as 2002's best game. But if you really thought about it, it shouldn't be that surprising.

Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution – Review

GameCritics.com
19 March 2003
  • Excerpt: I have absolutely no idea how I did it. In Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution , I decided to pick series poster boy Akira over my user-friendly usual fighter, Jacky. My opponent, the artificial intelligence, was Pai, who is quick with the reversals. I'm a pretty terrible Akira fighter, and I threw a lazy palm thrust aimed at Pai's midsection. I wasn't surprised that she was able to catch my predictable attack and proceed to reverse it with a sweep.

Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution – Second Opinion

GameCritics.com
19 March 2003
  • Excerpt: I think Gene is being a little pejorative by hanging that 8.5 on Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution . He labels it "user-nasty," then bemoans the fact that he had to spend time in the training mode—"slogging through command list after command list"—in order to reaquaint himself with the controls.

Into Liquid Sky
28 August 2002
  • Excerpt: Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution is the latest installment in Sega AM2's flagship franchise. The original Virtua Fighter burst onto the scene in 1993 and wowed onlookers with it's fully 3D characters and deep, involving combat system, pretty much single handedly inventing the 3D fighting genre. Now 10 years and 4 incarnations later how does the franchise stand up to the rest of the crowded genre?
  • Pros: Deep, complex fighting engine, Good variety of characters, Highly addictive, Great graphics, Enormous replay value
  • Cons: Voice work can be grating, As can the music, Occasional steep learning curve
