It's been a bumpy ride with its share of disappointment, but the quest to bring fighting games kicking and screaming into homes with smooth online play seems to be nearing its end. And it's just in time because the ability to find competition anytime,...

With 14 years of history behind it, the Virtua Fighter series offers a mature fighting system with plenty of characters that have been around since the beginning. Though the mode selection hasn't evolved much over that of Virtua Fighter 4, this fifth...

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown

 

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown: Complete Edition is the definitive version of one of this generation's best 3D fighters and is a must, with a caveat or two, for anyone who played the original version. It's especially true if you own the PS3 version...

I do have to say that I did find myself doing more with the customization options than I ever have before since it was such a chore to unlock things piece by piece, and now you have a relatively wide array of options to choose from...they just cost...

Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown Review

 

The coin-op classic comes to consoles, ported and polished to near-perfection for $15.

Virtua Fighter 5 is the fighting game fan’s fighter. There are no frills or a fancy art style to mask lesser gameplay. It’s a brawler, pure and simple. However, the more you put into it, the more you practice, the more it gives back, giving it an...

Straight Forward

Final Showroom is definitely not a bad game as it is welcoming to newbies with its plain gameplay whereas pros will enjoy the subtle technicality behind the fighting engine. The character roster is large but fans of modern fighters might lose attention...

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown Review

 

A fair, clean fight, but stiff and lifeless too.

Tutorial walks through mechanics; Plenty of subtle strategy and complexity; Fair, balanced mechanics don't feel cheap

General presentation is dry, dull, lacks life; Unlocks via gameplay replaced with DLC; Not much variety in modes or incentive to play alone

This rendition of SEGA's aged fighting franchise doesn't bring that much new to the table. Dedicated fans of the genre who maybe have gotten tired of the madness of Marvel vs. Capcom or other more crazy modern fighting games might appreciate this...
