    Peopole think that a game is good if it´s new, but they are wrong. Virtua Fighter is the proof.

    Virtua Fighter is the most disappointing launch title of all time.

    Rated on July 07, 2008 by anton10000

    First impressions are often the most important, and this sentiment lingered with the Saturn until its death in 1998. Virtua Fighter sold a great many Saturn in Japan on namesake alone, but the same di...

    A good arcade to 32X conversion of Virtua Fighter.

    Rated on June 14, 2011 by ZanarkandTidus

    Even though the 32X flopped,it did some good arcade to home transitions of arcade games and one of those games is Virtua Fighter. Virtua Fighter(which I'll refer to as VF)looks and plays almost li...

    This blocky, horrendous-looking fighter comes to life when you pick up the controller.

    Rated on June 05, 2010 by E-123Wario54

    Comparing Virtua Figher to other fighting games of the time, graphics-wise, is senseless; there is no competition. Virtua Fighter, although getting the achievement of first 3D fighting game, looks lik...

    Typical of Sega Arcade, the addictive nature of Virtua Fighter will be the reason you'll want to play it again so badly

    Even a year after being originally unveiled, Virtua Fighter looked unbelievably dated as it sat next to the Sega Saturn back on launch day of the 22nd November 1994. The visuals definitely aren't the ...

    Virtua Fighter....or Rock em vs Sock em robots?

    Rated on February 26, 2007 by CaptainNorris

    Sega jumped the gun in 1995 and released the Saturn four months before it was supposed to be released. Due to this, the only game it launched with was Virtua Fighter. The Saturn port of Virtua Fighter...

    The original Virtua Fighter is an absolute masterpiece of video game accomplishment, however it is not without its flaws

    Rated on January 17, 2012 by Shenmue_Jehuty

    When it was originally debuted back in 1993, the world of fighting games was confined to a 2D world where hand drawn character sprites duked it out, making for a fairly unrealistic, un-immersive exper...

    If you are into retro fighters, Virtua Fighter PC is not to be missed.
