Niente è meglio di Virtua Fighter, qualsiasi appassionato di picchiaduro potrebbe confermarvelo e l’ultimo capitolo di questa saga non fa altro che comprovare tale affermazione. Sega ha svolto un bellissimo lavoro, dandoci un picchiaduro davvero completo, molto tecnico e con tantissimi tutorial atti ad indottrinare e impratichire tutti i tipi di giocatori. Le aggiunte rispetto alla versione liscia sono tante e giustificano appieno l’acquisto di questo aggiornamento, non da ultimo uno dei migliori netcode per giocare online in modo davvero soddisfacente. Non possiamo fare altro che elogiare Sega e sperare che non abbandoni mai questo brand mantenendo lo standard così alto come ha sempre fatto.

It should be noted that VF5 came out two years before Capcom reinvented, and repopularised, fighting games with its focus on giving beginner players a chance against old hands with Street Fighter IV’s Ultra Combos and later Marvel Vs Capcom’s X-Factor. Others have followed suit, too: witness Soul Calibur V’s Critical Edge meter, and Mortal Kombat’s violent X-Rays. We suspect that Sega might have been tempted to join in if work on VF5 had started a little later. But it didn’t – and, if anything, modern context casts Final Showdown in an even better light. Its prudence, that veil of simplicity masking a system of astonishing possibility and depth, makes it one of the purest fighting games on the market today.

Virtua Fighter 5 is the fighting game fan’s fighter. There are no frills or a fancy art style to mask lesser gameplay. It’s a brawler, pure and simple. However, the more you put into it, the more you practice, the more it gives back, giving it an immensely rewarding quality that can only be found in truly great competitive online games.

VF5FS offers some of the finest, most balanced, and most in-depth fighting on the market for a price that's hard to argue with. Each character is worthwhile, and you can spend weeks perfecting the use of a single fighter--only to go online and be greeted by another skilled player who uses your chosen character in a new and unexpected fashion. If what you want most from a fighting game is a deep, technical, and incredibly rewarding competitive experience, you can't go wrong with Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown.
