Description official descriptions

Akira Yuki, the only active master of the powerful Kung Fu technique known as Hakkyoku ken (“The Eight Point Fist") travels the world in search of enlightenment and worthy opponents. He has found them in in the World Fighting Tournament, where the strongest fighters determine who the master of hand-to-hand combat is. All techniques are allowed as long as the contestants use no weapons but their own bodies.

After weeks of trials, only seven other warriors remain: Sarah Bryant and her brother Jacky, Lau Chan and his daughter Pai, Jeffry McWild, Wolf Hawkfield and the ninja Kagemaru.

Virtua Fighter PC (aka - Virtua Fighter PC Remix) is an enhanced port of Sega's arcade hit Virtua Fighter. It features the original characters and stages with higher polygon counts and texture mapping (a la Virtua Fighter 2) and various minor gameplay tweaks.

A standalone gem

The Good
The Virtua Fighter series is one of the most balanced fighting game series out there. Each character has weaknesses and strengths that are perfectly evened out throughout the game offering the player the opportunity to develop a strategy against each individual character. The game avoids the pitfall of having certain characters generally stronger or weaker than others.

Control is precise, and you never feel like you are really out of control of your character. Graphically the game has been overtaken by a long shot, but it still looks respectable enough.

The Bad
Modern Windows machines struggle to run VF properly, but it is possible to get it going. The sound really is nothing special, especially the bland and uninspiring music.

The Bottom Line
When the fighting game craze passed over throughout the 90s, it seems like us PC owners got left behind. With no conversions of Tekken, and absolutely pee-poor versions of the Street Fighter games, it seemed like the PC was never going to be a platform suited for fighting games. Virtua Fighter was the exception - not only was it one of the best fighting games on the PC, but it was one of the best fighting games ever, since surpassed only by its sequels. It's just a shame that VF3, 4 and 5 never made it to the PC.

An amazing new version!

The Good
The graphics are much more polished then the original Virtua fighter. They really look like they should. This is better because even in 1995, the original saturn VF looked terrible! The old version's graphics were so glitchy, but in Remix, they look fine. The controls (in my opinion) were better too. Special moves were much easier to do in Remix. The fighting is about the same as the original, straight-forward 3-D fighting. Only in this version it's much more playable.

The Bad
For some reason in this version, they some-how made it harder! I beat the original Saturn VF several times. But in THIS one, I can't even get past Pai!(on EASY!) Fighting games should be simple to just pick up and play.

The Bottom Line
Despite the Insane difficulty, VF Remix is a solid game worth picking up on your Saturn. It has smooth controls, a good fighting system, and overall, good gameplay!

OEM version

Sega released a version of this game that was included with the Diamond Edge 3D video card. It would only work with that specific video card, and used the proper title Virtua Fighter Remix instead of Virtua Fighter PC. The Diamond Edge 3D had ports on it which allowed use of actual Saturn controllers with Sega PC titles.

Saturn version

The Saturn version of Virtua Fighter Remix was given to all registered Saturn owners in the U.S. free via mail. This is usually considered to be a response to complaints about the quality of the original Saturn port of Virtua Fighter.
