Images of Virtua Fighter 5

Sega released these four images of Virtua Fighter 5, to be released next month on Playstation 3 (next week in the US). The Xbox 360 version is still many months away, so these screenshots are probably from the PS3 version.

The enviroment in the 2nd pic looks like the one in DOA 4, just worse. But w/e, I'm not into fighting games and didn't like DOA. Guess this one has better gemaplay.

I was thinking the same thing. These games should look real by now considering the limited amount of on-screen action. I am guessing the animation should be top notch considering the graphics arent.

Okay, I know that graphics don't make the game. It's become a cliche' for us, but these shots are not impressive. There is no complex open world to explore and there are only two players at the most on screen at once. So the graphics become a big factor when were talking about a fighting game. To add insult to injury, it doesn't even have online multiplayer versus. This was Sega's chance to outdo the aged Dead or Alive4, but they blew it. It still looks like the enviroments aren't interactive and confined to a box with ringouts.

The theme song of Virtua Fighter 5 is probaby REM's "Shiny plastic people"

Meh, if i want fighting games, then its:

Arcade: DOA 4

Realism: Fight Night Round 3

For me.

More impressive than Tekken 6. Sega must be pleased with the shots Namco released.

While I agree the skin shaders are a bit wonky, hard core VF fans are into the fighting system foremost above any graphical shortcomings.

The game just looks terrible in every screen shot released. In motion though, it just looks sick. This is a game that really doesn't transfer well to screens. Only screens I've seen that look decent are ones taken of someone playing the game on a tv.

Tekken 6 looks like crap. Now, this looks way better, but I wouldn't call it amazing.

i like many aint into this genre,but i know many will love it.
i have 1 question...why is it that developers over the lkast year or 2 had the idea that making people shiny makes them look better,most games now look plastic/cartoony effects. i wish they would change the style.
im not saying all games before any rants start as soom have looked amazing

I like DOA better~
Commented on 2007-02-17 05:57:33
The background in DOA4 are much nicer than here... and the space here is smaller too. Character models are a tossup though (I prefer VF5 more)

Yup. A bit of a shame that it's getting slammed in support of a launch game (especially DOA!)--the more the merrier, or something.

I absolutely agree too. I know that gameplay is everything, and that nothing can beat VF. That being said, JUST LOOK AT THAT "SKIN" YUK!!!

I guess it's just something to talk about. I know I'm getting this game. Heck yes!

Looks decent. BTW that mask guy pointing at the news pic somehow craks me up every time :)
Commented on 2007-02-17 17:06:44
Sega is making a huge mistake by not taking this game online. The hardcore VF fans won't care, but there's an entire market of more casual players that will buy DOA4 instead since you can always find competition online, even if there's occasional lag. Plus, I think the series is fast surpassing VF in terms of innovation and fun.

hahahaha! You could of said Soul Calibur or hell even Tekken, but DOA? :P

To each his own I guess :)

No one is forcing VF on you anyway. You should be happy that the genre is getting continued support on the platform at all.

Don't let this turn into another DOA vs. Everything war, and let's refrain from outright laughing at someone for their opinion too, he's entitled to it..

Yeah, that was my bad. I'm just going to stop coming in these VF5 news threads, they always get me on edge. I'll just stick to the threads I made over in the forums :)

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (19 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (19 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (20 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (20 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (20 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (20 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (20 Hours ago)
