The player assumes the identity of a young boy named Sei (pronounced "Say"). As the player explores each stage, he/she will discover "Virtua Souls" - data clusters that contain information about the martial arts abilities of the legendary Virtua Fighter characters. These clusters give the player the ability to easily perform complex fighting moves. As the game's story progresses, Sei discovers that only he can unlock the potential of the Virtua Souls, and he subsequently gains the attention of an evil syndicate known as Judgment 6.

  1. Isn't quite the RPG it originally promised to be. However, the great fighting engine and deep character customization makes Virtua Fighter Cyber Generation [Virtua Quest] stand above the average 3D brawler. [JPN Import]
  2. 66
    The action is mediocre at best, and the platform elements feel sloppy and unrefined. The graphics and sound are equally forgetful. The only glaring problem comes by way of the silly camera.
  3. Comes off lacking; the action is often repetitive and unwieldy, the platforming is iffy due to control quality, and the look and sound of the whole enterprise are on the uninspired side.
  4. 50
    Just a sadly mediocre attempt to do something that really didn't need doing. Now, can we please have a real VF adventure, Sega?
  5. How could a game with so much potential end up such a mess? [Feb 2005, p.100]
  6. Everything about the game feels half-hearted: the bland virtual world, the haphazard integration of the Virtua Fighter characters, and the uninspired environments.
  7. Simply a disaster...There's a long list of inadequacies, but the big problem is a horrid camera that you can't control beyond snapping it back behind you. [Jan 2005, p.76]
