The graphics look pretty much the same, and the game is as fast on both platforms. The main change, and the whole reason I bought the game was to play online.
If you have played DOA4 online, you can imagine how VF5 is online. The game does have slow down while you are playing. Though you can get through many matches without any slowdown, eventually, you will meet slowdown. It is usually quite funny when slowdown happens, everyone is waiting on the slowdown to end so you can fight again, which leads to copious bouts of laughter as everyone is trying to regain the upper hand, the game seems to just freeze, or go neo in matrix slow. With that said, I still enjoy the game, and I think if you give it a go, you will too.
I am glad sega put online into this game, and I cannot wait for Soul Calibur 4 to come out, with online as well!
Some people have been following this series with devotion ever since the first polygon fighter even was released (Virtua Fighter) and have watched the series grow in graphical prowess and move complexity (2 got a lot of devotion while not many loved 3). Personally I didn't really see the light until I played Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution on the PS2.
Some people undoubtedly will ask themselves why the heck they should get this game if they already have Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution. The answer is half the reason why I bought the game myself. The levels. If there was one thing I didn't like about Virtua Fighter 4 it was the fact that the levels were few and they bored me.. While the levels in VF 5 aren't exactly on the level of Smash Bros or Soul Calibur for diversity and entertainment value, they are better, and feature some nice weather effects (splashing through water, falling snow, whipping wind). There are other upgrades too, of course.
The game is based around the Crysis Engine, and features some of the fastest (and if not overly showy, at least very clean) graphics you will ever see. The controls, likewise, are razor sharp.Read more ›
enhancements: cleaner looking graphics than the PS3.
ONLINE play and features. (HUGE!)
Version C video introduction.
Other Version C arcade features? Character item customization...
Online play and graphics and Version C make this a must buy for VF and Sega Arcade fans.
Excellent fighting game, and in high definition and 5.1 sound!
The game has a very nice quest mode where you play AI opponents in several arenas and get to win rank and points that you can use to customize your character. Very cool. There is also an arcade mode and a practice mode. Practice mode is very good although can be improved.
I have not tried the online mode yet.
Graphics and sound are excellent. Game desing and play remains top notch and fun level is 10! This is a split second action game that leaves you very little time to think. If you hesitate, you're done. You have to act quickly and be very skilled on your pad. Learning curve is fast but if you really want to master the game you have to invest some time in studying moves and practicing them. You also need to learn how to read your opponent and adapt to his or her fighting style in order to bit them. there's more to this game than meets the eye, and there's plenty that meets the eye :)

But then the moves got stale - boring. Not much action in my opinion. Still a good game though to play with friends at house parties.Published on April 24, 2014 by Rob
