I don't recommend this game through Gamefly. It's almost imperative that you have a good, solid guide while playing, if nothing more than the instruction booklet. The learning curve is ridiculous. Every character has what seems like a thousand moves. While this sounds cool at first, they are all titled in Japanese. This makes it impossible to associate any moves with their names and the buttons used to execute them. Add this to the fact that there are 2 face buttons used for punch, one for kick and one for block, and you'll find yourself button mashing more than desired. The characters are all cool, but there are NO storylines. Add this to the inexcusable lack of online play, and you're left with a game that is confusing, frustrating, and utterly forgettable.

I loved playing Street fighter 2 with my brother on the SNES. Even though there wasnt much to it besides fighting, I loved all the different combos each player had and the different sounds they made.

VF5 is my first VF game. My word of advice, play this game with an arcade stick, it makes the combos much easier to do then the sixaxis.

The number of moves for each player is amazing.
I love the animations and the different sounds each player makes.

No online? Big Deal. Im glad, any lag would kill this game. This game is meant to play against your buddies in the same room.

This game brings back the excitement of Street Fighter 2 to the HD generation.

I love this game it builds you up and becomes a challenge. I do wish there was more costumazation. Other than that it is a fun game, great to play with friends. The graphics were beautiful.
