Looks surprisingly dated. VF4 didnt look half bad when it came out, but this looks pretty mediocre.

A six year old game looks surprisingly dated? Shocking stuff! I can't wait.

Swear VF5 itself looks better than this, normal maps and lighting both look a lot flatter in this. K it's only a dl title (i think) so guess we can give it some slack, I actually enjoyed VF5 however meh I was.

Exactly. I guess things needed cutting back for whatever reason?

I played VF5 a bit couple weeks ago and it holds up pretty good.

PS2 game, no way. IQ is surprisingly smooth for such an old 360 game.

Oh and that gameplay!

VF 5 actually looked leaps and bounds better than VF4 considering the resolution, 3d effects, etc. I think you are probably confusing the way the game looks because of the decision to go back to a more VF2 type of set up as opposed to VF3 multi-level stages.

Also Virtua Fighter 5 on Arcade hardware had a custom PC like set up with an Nvidia GeForce 6800 doing the graphics rendering, VF5 Final Showdown arcade version is actually running on something like a Geforce 8800 or G80 GPU derivative with Shader Model 4 and higher resolution support.

As far as these screen shots, they are kind of crappy but its still VF5 FS so thats a good thing. hopefully it sells enough copies so that SEGA can justify putting it on a Disc so those of us who cannot buy DLC will buy that copy instead.

And remember, VF5 on both PS3 and XBox 360 did not really sell all that great outside of Japan so given the current higher install base for both consoles chances are it will sell better but as for graphical improvements, so far the game looks decent, they seem to be targetting things like lag for online play to get that crowd, however if you are really hard core about fighting games you know a home tournament or just going to an arcade (if you are lucky to have a machine and people that can play) just cannot be beat.

And also if this game sells poorly again then we are screwed out of luck from getting more improvements or even a next gen version in the future.
