4.0 out of 5 stars First BLOCKBUSTER on PS3!!!! March 23, 2007
By Dave
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is great overall. As a long time fan of Tekken, I must admit I came in very skeptical, even hated the game after the first hour or so, however, after playing it more and giving it a legitimate chance, I'd recommend it to anyone.

What's Good:

A good array of fighters, each one very unique, you never feel like Fighter X is just a palette swap of Fighter Y.

Physics engine is finally at a point where the game is not an absurd juggle-fest, this has been my biggest critique as long as I've known about the game.

Grapplers can actually grapple! Thanks to "buffering" and 0-frame throws the game is not ridiculously unbalanced between the strikers and grapplers.

Graphics are spectacular

Great variety of arenas

The Bad:

Characters do not have stories

No FMVs

A.I. ranges from ridiculously easy to ridiculously hard

It takes forever to unlock items

Overall, I highly recommend this to PS3 owners, but I will be honest, once Tekken 6 comes out I probably won't play this as much.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite PS3 Game May 13, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an immensely entertaining game. Perhaps the most impressive aspect is the range of skill levels it accomodates; huge, immediate fun for the casual gamer yet impressive depth for those who take their Virtua Fighting seriously. Coming from a family with extensive Real World Martial Arts experience, it is fascinating to explore the strengths and weakness of the various characters. Just as in the real world of martial arts a small, skilled opponent can take out a big brute---but you better practice! The game is very well-balanced; any character can be a stud or dud, depending on your skill level.

After a long day at work, what could be more fun than powering up the PS3 and beating the tar out of "Jeffry," the obnoxious Australian Pancratium expert? I tell you, he deserves every thumping he gets!

Some magazine reviews have bemoaned the lack of on-line play. In a perfect world, yes, on-line would be a nice addition. But this is the ultimate fast muscle twitch game. Often the winner is determined by a last-moment, split-second kick. The quality of game play would suffer over the internet. So enjoy Virtua Fighter 5 for what is is: a gorgeous, highly replayble adrenalin-pumping slugfest.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
SEGA's Virtua Fighter carries a legacy that only the blue hedgehog can rival. Akira, Wolf, Sarah - you've seen them in one form or another, whether it's the blocky polygonal models from the original or the immaculately detailed PlayStation 3 ones. Does this legacy fall far from the tree?

Virtua Fighter 4 was a critical success on the PlayStation 2, with a global average of 91% in its original form and 91.4% in the revised form, Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution. In fact, it sits just under Soul Calibur 2 (91.6%) as the all-time highest-rated PS2 fighting game. History lesson aside, Virtua Fighter 5 does little to improve upon its PS2 predecessor, but it really doesn't need to. Fans of the PS2 game will find two new fighters and improved gameplay and graphics to boot. Cover boy Akira is joined by his entire set of Virtua Fighter 4 peers and newcomers El Blaze and Eileen. El Blaze, a luchadora, uses fancy wrestling moves while Eileen hops around a whole lot and utilizes what I considered cheaper hits than other characters. My personal favorite was the bald monk Lei-Fei.

Fighting is a breeze for newcomers and series vets alike. I can't say how grateful I am for this, because Virtua Fighter 4 wasn't so accessible and as a result I personally didn't appreciate it as much as my critical peers. On the PS3 pad, X serves as a punch button while Circle kicks and Square blocks. The triggers act as shortcuts for combinations of those three buttons, making special moves easier to execute. Combos are simple and flow together well, giving Virtua Fighter 5 a feel that is more similar to Dead or Alive than other fighting games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deepest most rewarding fighting series of all time. August 13, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Scrubs and button mashers beware. You'll start this game up play for 15 minutes without doing anything worthwhile and go "THIS GAME SUCKS!" and return to your mortal kombat or Dead or Alive. You're just too impatient to learn a quality fighter. You can't just pick this game up and be knock heads. You have to train a bit. Each character has a distinctive style and all the major martial art styles, even some that aren't real martial arts (luchadore and american wrestling) are represented. This game is the most well balanced fighter as well. Unlike most fighters with 2 or 3 really good characters and a mediocre remaining cast, Virtua Fighter 5 contains the most well balanced character roster of any fighter. Attacks that open up the potential for big damage aren't safe and can be punished by evade or after guarding (Usually by throws, Unless the opponent buffers escapes (It can get deeper still).) In the most popular fighting game in America, Tekken 5, big damage moves are safe on block and can lead to boring overly defensive gameplay, with each player dashing back just waiting for whiffed moves. In VF5 if you turtle you're going to get punished. This series isn't for everybody, but it is for those that want the deepest 1 on 1 experience in fighting. The game really shines when playing against other experienced players.

If you think a fighting game needs a storyline or CGI movies then plz pass on this game. The main point of this game is playing to your potential.
