    I've been a gamer long enough to regard VF as a pioneer in the fighting game genre, right there with Streetfighter. Years later, Sega's beat 'em up still reigns in terms of technique, depth, refinemen...

    While there have definitely been some excellent Virtua Fighter games in the past. This game may all most be better.

    Virtua Fighter V Final Showdown is one of the best fighting games I've EVER played. This is mainly due to it's complex and deep three button combo system. It would be seem impossible for VF5:FS to s...

    Fighting games don't get more pure than Final Showdown.

    It took Sega five years, but they finally did it. Virtual Fighter 5 with online play! But it's not perfect.

    I got Virtual Fighter 5 back in January for barely five dollars and got more than my money's worth. It's easy to get into and it's in depth without being rocket science. The game's got interesting c...
