Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown

Family Friendly Gaming
15 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Sony was kind to us at their E3 2012 press conference. They gave everyone in attendance a code for a free one year membership to Playstation Plus. I used that to download this game. So it cost me nothing but time, and one more thing I will mention later. Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is a fighting game on the PS3 and Xbox 360 from Sega. This franchise had been quiet for some time. I had actually hoped it was dead and buried.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown Review

GameSpot
16 July 2012
  • Excerpt: The modern renaissance of fighting games that began with the release of Street Fighter IV has had many positive effects on the genre. It has brought new players into the fighting game fold, and the increased audience allows for classic series that may have fallen by the wayside to be revived and put in the hands of new players eager to see the diverse breadth of experiences the genre has to offer.
  • Pros: Some of the richest, most complex fighting gameplay around, Solid online gameplay with well-done netcode, Option-packed customization DLC offers a lot of value, Offers some of the best tutorial and training modes in modern fighters
  • Cons: Single-player mode is weak compared to previous iterations, No way to earn customizations without DLC

  • Conclusion: Coming across a customised Akira online decked out with a leather cap, a handlebar moustache and a pair of stylish red underpants. Then losing.
  • Pros: Nailing a combo with pitch-perfect timing against a similarly-skilled opponent to win a heated match.
  • Cons: Most of the new music is... not good, and several design decisions are a step back.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown Review

  • Excerpt: Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is the antithesis of everything that’s happening in fighting games at the moment. While the competition looks to cram as many modes, colours, tag-team combinations and nuts graphical effects into their electric battlegrounds, AM2’s five-year old effort sits calmly in its dojo, meditating on the purity of competition and the precision of combat.

  • Excerpt: Virtua Fighter was one of my first beat um up titles when I first got into console gaming. It is nice to see it further down the line still able to invoke some fun and thrills in the challenge of taking on virtual opponents. Thanks to Sega since they sent the code over for us to check this game out, we get to go into one on one battle again.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown Review

IGN Entertainment
11 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Appropriate for a fighter that puts mechanics and gameplay above all else, the single player content in Final Showdown is a bit thin. There's a standard arcade mode and score attack, as well as license test that puts fighters through a series of challenges, but that's pretty much it for single player content. The expansive single player Quest mode from previous entries is sorely missed, but that might have been outside of the scope of a downloadable title.

  • Excerpt: The redone Quest mode was the first thing that really stood out to me outside of the roster changes. Instead of going from one virtual arcade to the next, you now beat a ladder of opponents under a set theme name - which basically amounts to the same thing only without the arcade theme to it.

  • Excerpt: No one is afraid of a “Jeffry”. Except of course, the great Jeffry McWild. Imagine a bulky, towering man with no shirt and fury in his eyes stomping his way toward you Mike Haggar style.: to be blunt, there is no way that encounter will end well. Luckily, Mr. McWild is relegated to the fictitious world of Virtua Fighter .

Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown

  • Excerpt: Since Virtua Fighter 5 ’s 2007 debut, the fighting-game scene’s experienced something of a renaissance. That’s why Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown feels a bit flat compared to more recent fighters. It doesn’t do much that another game wouldn’t do better, but for $15, its nostalgia value and good clean combos are more than enough.
  • Pros: + Each character’s fighting style is super-different from the other combatants’., + Easy to pick up, extremely hard to master.
  • Cons: ? Does the “
