"Unique fighting styles, Strategic combat, and Superb graphics!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I am new to the Virtua Fighting Series; however, Virtua Fighter 5 is a refreshing change from other well-known fighting games such as Tekken, Street Fighter, and Dead or Alive.

I am a big fan of fighting games and have thoroughly enjoyed Virtua Fighter 5. A key strength of Virtua Figther 5 is its unique fighting styles pertaining to the well designed characters in the game. The mix of characters offer a diverse range of fighting styles including jujitsu, Mantis Style, Monkey Style, Wrestling (both conventional and lucha libre), kick-boxing, Drunken fist, and more which helps differentiate it from other fighting games which cover more conventional martial arts.

Secondly, Virtua Fighter 5 presents itself with extremely well-defined and realistic graphics for both the fighters and the beautiful locations where the fights take place (by waterfall, on a beach, under the sakura blossoms, in a dojo and more).

Thirdly, Virtua Fighter 5 adds elements of realism by factoring in the characters' weights which impact the amount of damage they receive when falling, and being subject to particular attacks from varying opponents of all shapes and sizes.

Virtua Fighter also includes an Arcade Mode which enables vast customisation by fighting numerous AI opponents in arcade-style battles and tournaments which offer bonus items and cash to purchase costumes and accessories for your fighter.

Lastly, Virtua Fighter 5 is fun to play with friends as a friendly competition and still includes traditional fighting mechanics based on strategic combat, timing, countering, stringing combos for both High/Mid/Low attacks; so, you can't rely on button mashing to win your matches.

Overall, an enjoyable game, especially with the company of others, and a definite keeper for collectors and connoisseurs of fighting games :-)

Fight your way to the top. This game is a must buy game if you liked the ones that came before it. This is SEGA fighting games at their best.

Description

The game that pioneered the 3D fighting genre is back with Virtua Fighter 5, the latest instalment in the popular series, exclusively for the Playstation 3 computer entertainment system. Virtua Fighter 5 will elevate the arcade fighting genre to all new heights as the game promises to take true advantage of the capabilities of the next generation hardware. Virtua Fighter 5 raises the bar for console fighting games including all the features fans know and love plus enhanced gameplay mechanics, additional characters and new fighting styles, as well as newly redesigned 3D environments.

Virtua Fighter 5 will deliver fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping action as players head into battle, taking on a host of popular characters. The game will introduce two new dynamic characters, El Blaze and Eileen, complete with new fighting techniques and from completely different backgrounds. Play as one of the 17 default characters in the game or customize a character to become the top Virtua Fighter. Players will be able to modify their characters by selecting from four base costumes and then decorate them by attaching a wide range of unlockable and earnable items. Players will not only achieve victory by defeating highly-skilled opponents, but also by competing for prizes and earning in-game money allowing them to buy many items at an in-game shop. Further building upon the depth of the series, players will now be able to move around their opponent using an “Offensive Move” technique, adding a new strategic element to their battles.
