    Apart from minor graphical tweaks and two fresh characters, VF4E remains much the same game. [May 2003, p.102]

    THE best Virtua Fighter out of all the series. The game that stopped SEGA from going bankrupt. I remember owning the PSM2 DVD with this andTHE best Virtua Fighter out of all the series. The game that stopped SEGA from going bankrupt. I remember owning the PSM2 DVD with this and Soulcalibur 2 as import reviews and they did not disappoint.

    The graphics were a big improvement over the normal version of Virtua Fighter 4. They looked nicer, smoother and very realistic. The animation looked superb. The soundtrack was really good. The sound was improved and the gameplay was more refined and I think it has the best gameplay out of all the series.

    It brought 2 new characters into the series: Brad Burns and Goh Hinogami. I did like their fighting styles. A lot of things were added to keep the game innovative such as: fighting records and opponent logs in quest mode, new special game modes, item and money battles, item stores and currency system in quest mode, new ring, better ranking system and emblem battles. You could buy the original Virtua Fighter stage and the original character models which was a nice touch as well.

    It has THE best training mode out of all the series. This was the first game out of the series to have the command list, ai position and difficulty setting, spawn and reset position and among other things.

    Definitely buy this.
