Gameplay of Virtua Fighters 5

Gameplay of Virtua Fighters 5

I went to a Sony showroom in Paris, showcasing the PS3 launch line-up games of Sega. I took the time to grab some images of Virtua Fighters 5. The players seemed to lack some skill, but the game is as enjoyable to watch as ever. More videos to come if you behave...

Kool, it looks amazing. :)

Backgrounds are a bit boring, after playing DOA4 though.

This game looks amazing, I have a major soft-spot for fighting games and I just can't wait to get my hands on this!

I've been looking for this game for a long time. Here's hoping it's actually released Spring 2007! Although Hori or someone will have to come out with a wireless arcade controller for this....

virtua fighter needs to change, its as stale as tekken, sega need to evolve the fighting mechanics and make the levels free roaming and more interactive, both them and namco just pump out this sequels cause they know the llama fanboys will snap them up.

Actually you are wrong, people love VF because it has remained true to the series, and is considered the best beat’em up out there.

VF sells like crazy in Japan, I sure as hell don't want roaming levels either, the whole point of VF is to ring out your opponent.

90% of the time you don't ring out anyway, its dated, needs updating

The mechanics are always updated in one way or another in the VF series, but if you're not that big of a fan of teh games you probably wont notice.

As all the other developers out there you mean.

Guess that depends how clever you are.

VF5's system allows you to move around and sidestep easier, making ring outs easy to execute.

I pretty much agree with Jollipop - the game sells because it's so good... it has a h u g e following, and if it aint broke...

If people want a free roaming fighter they will go for DOA. But to be honest most dedicated fighters will at the very least sample as many as possible, and stick with their favourite...

Exactly. Fiddling with VF would be like making changes to chess.

Having VF5 in the PS3 library will certainly help shift systems...

About the game

    Sdarts The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (3 Hours ago)

    Sdarts And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: From someone who read and even listened to all The Witcher books before playing the games. The books are on par with The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Harry Potter books imho. (4 Hours ago)
