Virtua fighter 5 was sega's answer to namco's Tekken series.
Well the fight between the two is more of a walk in the park.
To put it in the shortest term possible virtua fighter is in a different league, but way below ground.
I thought i would give this game a trial as there were no real fighting games available. Well what a waste of money time and effort.
If your a fan of the series then it probably hits the right buttons, but for me it was just ugly. Yes the graphics are nice, but the game just doesnt hit the spot in terms of gameplay.
There are numerous characters and lovely background fighting arenas. But they just dont cut it. Yes it may have realistic water, but that does not make up for the lack of anything else.
How do you pull off combos on this game? Thats right you dont, because you cant, becuase its impossible and unnatural to complete the long list of combos. So its back to the old school button bashing - yay, overjoyed reaction!
Do not buy this game , its one of the worst games i have ever played.
Awful, come on sega this is just lame.
Virtua fighter 5 is withouta doubt one of the best fighter I have ever played and probably will ever play again. The game is amazing in every aspect frokm the sound effects to the graphics everything is of the highest quality. The game comes with offline and xobx live content.
Offline you go through story mode of the different characters. The characters used are both interesting and easy to fight with. All the characters have cool moves and all look really good.
Online you go into tournaments and fight against different people which is challenging and fun.Virtua fighter rised above all my expectations and has given me hours and hours of fun gameplay. A cool feature as well is that in quest mode you can customise your fighter.
Overall Virtua fighter 5 is a masterpiece in the fighting genre and will be hard to beat. The stories of the different characters are really good as well and make you more involved in the gameplay.
Virtua Fighter 5 is the fifth game string of famous for being a pioneer in the tridimensional struggle for gender. Despite the impressive technical advances, especially in graphics, the essence of the game remains the same, two fighters of different martial arts will be playing on a platform. The player whose energy is exhausted or the platform to fall, loses. However, there are small arenas bounded by fences or high fences that do not allow the classic victory by ring out.
This time, the J6, the company responsible for organizing the tournament world of struggle, is testing another weapon to fight with human characteristics. Dural V, as it was called, was built using data collected from Vanessa, however, is quite similar to the other. There are two new fighters who may be chosen, Eilleen, a practitioner of kung fu style monkey, and El Blaze, a fighter of wrestling.
The game basically account with three commands: punches, kicks and defense. Although there are other resources besides these, as throw, combos, special blows specific character of each other and common to all, the three main buttons and their various combinations and sequences are everything.
When VF5 first came out as a PlayStation 3 exclusive, to say I was gutted would be as much as an understatement as saying that the sun is a bit hot. But now, with the 360 version in hand, the tables have turned and I have no reservations and waving this new version in the faces of all those PS3 owners that have been rubbing this glorious fighting game in our faces for so long. With newly added online play and all the updates from the Version C arcade machine, this is by far the definitive version of the world's best beat-'em-up and after a period of some uncertainty, Sega is now very much back on top.
With its simple three button set-up, VF is, in theory, amongst the most basic fighting games you'll ever play. But rather than relying on complex canned combos and overly elaborate chains, AM2 simply offers you the tools with which to express yourself through violence. Each character sports a variety of situational moves with different properties allowing you to capitalise on any opening in a foes defence with a suitable attack and often follow it up for more damage. Putting together any kind of decent string will require practice, timing and accuracy and even the simplest characters take some serious learning if you want to do anything more than just the basics with them.
And it's thanks to this side of the game that VF5 is able to blossom into such an incredibly organic and personal fighting experience. Even with their designated move sets, no two players are likely to play the same character alike- one Jeffry may constantly look to set up his big damage throws, another play of heavy juggle combos from risky launcher attacks while another might rely heavily on stances to rack up wins. This freedom is what makes VF5 such an incredible game to play and even watch when two high level fighters are going at it, but at the same time this is what makes the game such a degree of success, you'll need to learn at least the main attacks of each of the fighters and learn how best to counter them with your chosen brawler. Some allow a free counter attack when blocked, others can be deftly sidestepped while more still can be interrupted simply by ducking under or jumping over blows and launching into your own barrage. There really isn't another fighting game like this. Well, besides the older VG games but that's pretty much a given.
So what exactly does Version C mean to you? One of the main changes is increased character balancing based on how arcade players had learned to exploit overpowered moves in the original coin-op version. This makes for a much fairer fight whoever you pick but the shiny new stuff doens't stop there. Another key element of the VF experience is dressing up your character with all kinds of crazy accessories and costume items that show your rivals how much time you've spent pummelling lesser fighters. With Version C comes a huge amount of new items for just this purpose and while some are available from the off, others must be unlocked at higher ranks and through beating certain opponents in Item Battles. Some of these items - both old and new - can drastically change the appearance of your character so you'll want to spend the time earning 'Fight Money' in each of the arcades so that you can fully pimp you combatant to look so as disgustingly amazing or as amazingly disgusting as you see fit.
With its varied and generally robust AI, VF5 offers gamers of all levels an excellent challenge on their own but it's wth two controllers connected that it really shines. Match series have often been known to go on way past everyone's bedtime and while many fighting games will see you changing characters every few minutes so as not to get bored, there are enough unique moments and opportunities on display here to make even the same two guys slugging it out a very real all-nighter proposal. Throw in the fact that it looks really lovely and will never cease to offer entertainment (learning even one character properly can take months, putting the entire cast at several years, so this sheer dedication and commitment to the VF cause won't please everyone), anybody with a fondness for violence or competitive play and a little patience would do very well to add Virtua Fighter 5 to their collection.

Virtua fighter 5 is a fighting game for the Microsoft Xbox 360 games console.
This game is the sequel to the highly popular series, it is the first game in the Virtua fighter series on the next generation of hardware.
The game has all the characters you would expect from this game by including a couple of new additions, a Mexican wrestler and a girl who uses a crazy monkey style to fight.
The gameplay is as you would expect, every character has their own combo moves and moves to learn. If you are expecting a pick up and play a game you will be very disappointed. This is for people who have played this series before, or people who seriously want to get into it.
Exclusive to this version is online play where you can challenge the world and show off your fighting skills, for the most part this works well but sometimes you do get lag.
This fighting game is excellent but for dedicated players only. You can buy it for around £30.00.
I believe tha this is of a higher technology.
I an extremly amaized of the animation and the sound effects
when i first saw the product i thought of it being ordinary,but i can now tell with all confidence that it is the best i have seen.

YOU NEED IT,YOUR FAMILY NEEDS IT,SO GO FOR IT .
THANKS FOR THE VIRTUA FIGHTER 5.
