    In the end, the fun, fast gameplay and incredibly cheap $5/400 MSP price makes this a must have. Don't even try the demo here, just download it, you will not regret it.

    A vision of retro loveliness. [March 2013, p.85]

    Vipers is still a lot of fun, but you won't dump newer 3D fighters for it.

    While Virtua Fighter 2 was the fighter with the most precision gameplay,not to mention the game with more depth than any other console fighter(Vitua' & Fighting vipers were originaly SATURN games) of the late 90s era.Fighting Vipers has the same gameplay mechanic as the superlative Fighter Megamix,which was an amazing mash-up of VF2 & FVs with other SEGA mascots in there for good measure,but back to FV,well to be honest I was really pleased & surprised how well this game holds up to modern fighters,of course the graphics are of there time but they still look really nice & the gameplay is classic SEGA arcade style brilliance.I highly recomend this & Virtua Fighter 2 which was released on x.b.l.a on the same day as 'Vipers.
