Virtua Fighter 5 review

360 owners finally get their hands on Sega's masterpiece

For

  • Online play for 360 owners
  • Superb (perfect?) fighting
  • Gorgeous visuals

Against

  • Worst commentary ever
  • Perhaps too hardcore
  • Hasn't really changed in 12 years

Oct 29, 2007

After all that %26ldquo;only PS3 can do Virtua Fighter 5%26rdquo; talk, we%26rsquo;re proud to say the 360 version is graphically superior - by some margin, in fact. Truthfully, the 360 sheen is so apparent in a direct HDMI cable switch comparison, it%26rsquo;s like looking at Soul Calibur 2 on Xbox compared to PS2. VF5%26rsquo;s here, online, and all is right with the world.
