Virtua Fighter 5 - first look

The premier 3D fighting franchise finally journeys to Xbox - and it's looking its best

All expectations we have - after seeing the performance of the 360 version, which absolutely runs as well and looks at least as good as the PS3 version - is that VF5 on the 360 will be the fighting game of choice for the system for the foreseeable future. It simply is so deep and enjoyable in arcades and on PS3 that little can go wrong now that performance has been sorted out. What we saw in Japan ran beautifully. We have questions, of course, about what content will spice up the 360 release and make it more worthy than the PS3 version, but those will have to wait for now.
