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...

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown


Welcome my student. I summoned you here because I have obtained news that a new challenger to the fighting game crown has emerged. For years now the battle has waged between games such as Street Fighter, Soul Calibur, Mortal Kombat, Tekken, and more to...

Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown


Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is an interesting fighting game that struggles to find a place amongst the best that the genre has to offer. While

The real issue that Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown faces is one that it can do little to solve. This is a game that struggles for recognition in a market flooded with excellent fighting games. Virtua Fighter 5 is a decent game that is certainly worth...

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown Review


These days the genre of fighting games is much like that of the first person shooter, in that it is dominated by a few select titles. In terms of Shooters, Battlefield and Call of Duty are the obvious names, and while they are similar in terms of...

Inviting a few friends over and feeling like a boss while I pwned their arses.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown on Xbox 360


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...

Virtua Fighter 5


The once over-populated genre of the fighting game is now a mere shadow of what it used to be. In fact there are really only five big names left in...

Incredibly Deep Fighting System ; Gorgeous Visuals ; Quest Mode Is Huge ; Character Balance Is Flawless

Lack Of Any Type Of Online Mode ; Bare Bones Feature Set

Virtua Fighter 5 Online (Xbox 360)


Earlier this year, PlayStation 3 owners got a chance to whack away at Virtua Fighter 5, the follow-up to 2003's stellar VF4: Evolution. Evolution may have been the greatest fighter of all time, and the next-gen sequel on Sony's console was top-notch....

This review was based on a retail version of the game supplied by the publisher. The reviewer didn't have to do anything. He just opened his door one day and there it was!

Virtua Fighter 5 Online


The OXM Review: Dead or what? Oh, never mind…

Great fighting action, including Xbox Live play that works well.; Impressively large roster

You can customize characters, but you can't create your own from scratch

When will Quest Mode see an upgrade?
