Summary: Every effect is brilliant, every hit is lightning fast and realistic, and all the physics are strong. If you like button mashing, this game is not for you, but if you're a dedicated fight sim gamer, this is a must for your library. If you're getting this game, make sure you get the "Evolution" version. It has the two estra characters that make the game.
Summary: I must say this game is great but I have a question. Why in the training mode they show how to perform the moves of a character like they are using a joystick,but you cant use the R3 AND L3 buttons in actual arcade or any battle? In the arcade or quest mode the R3 and L3 are totally useless, I understand that its really only three button to perform a combo but trying to perform a combo using the directional pad its really annoying in my opinion.Thats the only problem I...
Better than Tekken 4 - Same Graphics as Tekken 5, almost
22 March 2005
Summary: Tekken 4 is not a very good Tekken game. Tekken Tag beats it. Evolution beats standard VF4. Evolution is what you should own instead of Tekken 4. Why? Well the graphics are nearly as good as Tekken 5 and that was 2 years ago, so VF5 will probably be awesome to look at. Tekken 5 has more characters though but look at the price... it is twice the cost of this one that has less characters.
PS2: there is Tekken, Soul Calibur 2 and Virtua Fighter...

Summary: ...and you really can't compare them. Tekken has much more developed characters considering both personality and moves than other two and Soul Calibur is 3D oriented, not side stepping 2D game which Tekken 4 and VF 4 are. Imagine Tekken 4 done in Soul Calibur speed and with simpler combos and no tenstrings. That is VF4 EVO: it has speed of Soul Calibur, simple combos and complicated heavy attacks and it has quest mode, too.
Summary: Well, its as the title says. VF4 EVO. IF you already have VF4(as I do) there is hardly any differance. They added a quest and 2 charaters. So, if you don't already have VF4, this is a good buy for you. Its not realy worth the extra $20, if you already have VF4.
Summary: I'm new to the Virtua Fighter series so when I first bought it, I wanted to return it I thought it sucked. But I gave it a chance. Now I'm glad I didnt! It's possibly the best fighting game out there right now! At first if you dont know what you're doing, fighting can seem very basic. Just various kicks and punches. But this game is all about technique!
Summary: In all fairness, that last review is an exact, word for word copy from the one on Gamespot.com. On the other hand, it is an accurate description of the game. If you are adept at fighting games in general and pick up quickly on the myriad combos and special moves, this one allows for pretty in-depth strategy. If, like me, you are basically atrocious at this type of game, it teaches you virtually everything you'd ever want to know to become a decent player.
Excerpt: I have been asked to provide a letter of recommendation for Hampton Lamoureux and it is with great honor that I do so. I have had the pleasure to work with Hampton the past year as his teacher. I have come to know him well this year and watch him reach his goals. Hampton has many important qualities, but the most important is his perseverance to succeed. He set a goal to complete the IB program here at Riverdale and within this year, he will be achieving that goal.
Pros: Quest and Game Modes, New Customization and Arenas, VF1 Integration
Cons: Potentially Challenging for New Players, Too Easy for Advanced Players
Excerpt: A lot of people are not into fighting games for the main reason that they apparently lack depth. This is true with some games, yet definitely not with the quasi-sequel to Virtua Fighter 4 - Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution. In my honest opinion this is the best, most realistic beat-em up on the playstation 2. Every single character, of which there are 15 to choose from, is completely unique.
Pros: Very realistic, challenging, excellent gameplay, fluid controls .
