Virtua Fighter 5 is probably is best fighter game I have ever played. Even though, the voice overs are not that good, I think its a pretty descent game to play. THE GRAPHICS ARE AMAZING!!!!

I can't think of any way to improve this game. A major complaint is the lack of online matches, but honestly it isn't needed. If you're good enough that you have no challenge against the hardest AIs, then you're not going to find any challenge playing actual people online.

Now that that has been said, let me reiterate: I can't think of any way to improve this game. The battle system has been refined to near-perfection, and each character's move list has been tweaked enough to where you'll feel like you still know your character, even if you have to relearn some of your favorite moves and combos.

All in all, if you like fighting games, you should like this one. Keep in mind, however, that it is NOT a button-masher. Actually practicing with whichever character you're interested in is reccomended.

This game looks stunning! I've played in in 1080i and the graphics will blow you away! The level of detail on the environment makes the scenes life-like and the characters often look good enough to pass off as a real person.

This title was so good that I actually purchased this game after a few hours. The game has very simple controls so you don't need to have your list of tricks handy. Combo moves are available for those people who want to learn and use them.

The load times are acceptable and the levels and game play is FAST!

I wish the game made use of the SIXAXIS controller but it's still fun without the SIXAXIS.
