    The derivative nature of the plot goes hand-in-hand with the completely unimaginative gameplay. Nothing here is original -- the RPG-in-a-computer gimmick is straight up .hack, and the action feels like martial arts-oriented Mega Man Legends.

    Imagine an M-rated RPG set in the Virtua Fighter universe with the real VF combat engine. Until that day comes you’ll experience more virtua pain than virtua pleasure with this one.
  3. Everything about the game feels half-hearted: the bland virtual world, the haphazard integration of the Virtua Fighter characters, and the uninspired environments.
  4. What we are left with is a game without a defined audience, and is really annoying. Maybe they’ll make a sequel- a fighting game where you just smack Hayami up and down the street. I’d probably play that.

    Ultimately, what Virtua Quest proves is that putting great characters into a lousy game doesn't make the game any less lousy. It just robs those characters of their dignity. [Feb 2005, p.87]

    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]
