Between its uncertain frame rate and its less than ideal control, the PC conversion of Virtual On just doesn't pack the punch of its arcade cousin. Sure, the PC version supports multiplayer setups across the board, including Internet play - but you just can't get too excited about winning when your computer and your gamepad are far more important factors than your level of skill. And while the two-player simultaneous split-screen mode is a nice idea, unless you have a Pentium 200 or higher, you won't get any enjoyment out of it. At the same time, challenging the computer opponent over and over won't keep you riveted for long since Virtual On is intended for competitive play. As it stands, the PC conversion of Virtual On inherently lacks those key features that assured its quarter-munching longevity at the arcades.
