5 The real truth about this game... Everyone please read.TrojanX | 16/12/2007 | See all TrojanX's reviews (1)Ok, here is my view on this game. Please note that this is the first time i've played Virtua Fighter and my background is Tekken and Dead or Alive...This game is truly the best 3D beat'em up game today. The graphics are definitely really impressive and this is strongly apparent on a HD screen! There is no other fighting game that features characters looking this detail (fact) and the sound effects & music is top notch. In fact, if you want something that looks "next-gen" on your PS3 other than Gran Turismo HD then this is 100% it!I was really hesistant to try this game the first time round so to be safe, I decided to read a lot of comments and reviews. After the reading, I've discovered that some of the most recognisable comment were people saying they found it difficult to get into. The truth is this... If anyone say that then do not listen to them. If you're looking for a fighting game that performs really cool looking without much thought applied into it, or if you're looking for something with Street Fighter related move executions then you're barking up the wrong tree. Many people grew up with Street Fighter in mind so, naturally, that's the only game they would know and would expect many other fighting game to follow a similar route. The absolutely truth is this game is very easy to get into (it only uses 3 button!! 3 BUTTONS!!!), especially once you've accepted that it is different from the rest and you're willing to figure out why. Also, it is very easy to notice how far you can go into this game in regards to depth (take a look at VFTV or some of the video plays on Youtube) and that puts people off which is a major shame. Truth is, many people are very lazy when it comes to beat'em up which is why they're into game like Dead or Alive and Tekken as it doesn't require that much thought and they're also cover with plenty of bells and whistle but containing little substance.Simply put, if those games are the Checkers/Draughts of fighting game then Virtua Fighter 5 is definitely the Chess. It will provide you hours upon hours of entertainment which will escalate if you have some good friends to play against. The fighting makes sense, the game feels very balance and you will get so much out from it. Get this game for sure if you have got some good friends - Otherwise get the Xbox 360 version which will allow you to play online - and definitely get it if you're a person that appreciate martial arts as this is one of the most realistic ones out there.
