Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution

Thunderbolt Games
14 May 2006
  • Excerpt: You know what fighting games lack? Realism. No, I’m not talking about cuts and bruises that appear when your fighter gets pummeled, a shiny coat of sweat coming off their muscular bodies, or anything else that pertains to incredibly detailed graphics. I’m talking about down-to-Earth, common sense realism as it pertains to our own lives. Can people really fire off Hadokens and Sonic Booms?

  • 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.

  • 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: Arguably the very best 3D fighting franchise out there--certainly the one the launched the genre-- Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution is a climax for the entire superlative series. Launching at a "greatest hits" price point (US$20 or CA$30), there is no reason not to pick this one up.

Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution Review

GameSpot
11 August 2003
  • Excerpt: Though it was released a year and a half ago, Virtua Fighter 4 remains the overall best fighting game currently available on any platform. Actually, technically, it isn't--that honor now belongs to Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution, a suitably impressive follow-up to last year's game. VF4: Evolution is part of Sony's $20 "Greatest Hits" collection right out the gate, presumably due to the success of last year's game, but it isn't just a rerelease for those who might have...

  • 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.
