A stellar remastering of one of the best fighting games ever, Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Edition is at the very apex of Sega's long running series and in doing so, its elevated profile will hopefully propel the franchise forward as a whole to heights that it has long deserved. Virtua Fighter is back and it's better than ever.
Great game. The only issue is the net code and the lack o balance (choose wisely) between the characters.
Some have all the pearks other have... some..
Only online. For some weird reason, u will reach a point where u only mach with higher ranks (like 5 to 10 lvls higher)
Arcade stick recommended.
All this issues remobe most of the fun, i reach a point where iam playing just for the platinum
Geared primarily for the online, esports crowd, Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown is an excellent way to get back into the franchise that started 3D Fighting. AM2 and Ryu-Go-Gotaka has given the fifteen-year-old game a successful visual facelift without sacrificing the sublime gameplay for window dressing. However, more love for offline and single players would have been appreciated.
While the game itself is basically the same Virtua Fighter 5 bolstered with a graphical makeover, it’s hard to fault it when the core fighting system is just so meticulously polished. Regardless of what the future may hold for the franchise, Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown is a welcome return of a 3D fighting legend, one that looks and plays better than it ever has before. The major caveat here is that the wealth of online multiplayer options are potentially held back by the netcode.
The three button setup of Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown has stood the test of time, providing an incredible amount of depth with a strong emphasis on the fundamentals. It’s just a shame that the spotty netcode drags down the overall experience; those looking to seek out new challengers best come with a bit of patience.
Considering the overall quality of Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown's combat it's easy to recommend giving it a shot if you're curious. If you can handle some iffy random connections and a dearth of single-player content, you will find an immensely satisfying fighting game experience that only gets better the more time you invest in it. However, I can't help but feel like a little more time to cook would have benefitted this release. Sega wants this game to be an ongoing thing, so updates are likely to add features, customization items, game adjustments, and gameplay modes. For right now, though, Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown remains a good--if flawed--return to the spotlight for one of gaming's greatest fighters.
A lazy and bite-free remastered, designed for online but with a netcode absolutely not up to par. A carefully created online component would certainly have made a combat system shine that remains solid and fun after decades, finally bringing the saga back to the beat 'em up giants. Let's hope Sega has learned his lesson and wants to "get serious" next time.
Offline matches are quickly and every stage increases the level of the opponent, making hard to bet all while is a good challenger. At the same time everyday changes, the lineup for you to fight.
Online you have to level up every character instead of your profile, therefore you have to use different fighters if you want to show that you are really good.
I love this retro game and enjoy playing old fight game online, especially in the pandemic where you can't receive anyone in your house, different of the old days
Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown — улучшенное издание легендарного файтинга с видом сбоку Virtua Fighter 5. Вы сможете бросить вызов величайшим бойцам мира в обновленном классическом 3D-файтинге, теперь с великолепной HD-графикой, новыми сетевыми функциями и всеми видами боевых искусств знаменитого оригинала. По мере прохождения вы овладеете собственным боевым стилем, чтобы победить всех соперников в Пятом мировом боевом турнире и стать легендой Virtua Fighter.
Напомним, Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown представляет собой ремастер оригинальной игры с графикой на основе движка Dragon Engine (серия Yakuza, Judgment) и рядом дополнительных функций и нововведений.
Как стало известно, в состав Legendary Pack входит более 2 тыс. предметов для изменения внешности, 19 альтернативных костюмов для персонажей, 40 печатей для режима зрителя, а также 180 новых и классических вариантов фоновой музыки.
Кроме того, дополнение предложит воссозданный интерфейс и модели персонажей из оригинальной Virtua Fighter. Как это всё выглядит в ремастере, продемонстрировали в новом трейлере.
«Восстанавливать старые модели всех 19 персонажей для современной игры было довольно весело: наши дизайнеры создали по две “классические” модели для каждого бойца, в том числе для новых из более свежих частей», — поделились в Sega.
Дополнение Legendary Pack уже поступило в продажу для PlayStation 4 отдельно (719 рублей) и в комплекте с самой Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown (2149 рублей). Приобрести одно лишь переиздание пока не получится.
If you have PS Plus for the month, this newest edition of Virtua Fighter 5 is an immediate recommendation for fighting fans. But it's worth mentioning that spending $30 for those who would otherwise only have access to the barebones offline content is a huge waste of money. Virtua Fighter 5 is still a decent game, but it should've either been exclusive to PS Plus members, or have a much lower price point for all looking to own it.
Not fun at all. Lagy online gameplay. Poor graphics, and not story. Why waste your time on this when there's Street Fighter, Tekken, Mortal Kombat, or even Injustice? All these games have WAY better graphics as well as a story. They even have much more stable internet connections. Finally, this is just an HD remake of Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown from the PS4 which was an HD remake of Virtua Fighter 5 from the 2013 PS3 version in which THAT was just an HD remake of Virtua Fighter 5 from 2006 on an Arcade system. Sooo dumb, I know
Dont know why they bothered, it looks and runs almost identical to the "back compat Xbox one" and PS3 version of the game I already own. Is that why there is No Xbox One version, because it would be to obvious they did nothing? Well nothing good!!
In fact the characters looked better in the older versions. Resolution , frame rate , visuals, they did nothing except mash the fases, paste new art over profiles and maybe lower pysics..
Waste of a PS pluss game as there no reason to pick this game up again.
SummaryChallenge the greatest fighters in the world in the ultimate remaster of the classic 3D fighter, now featuring gorgeous HD graphics, new online features, and all the bone-crunching, martial arts combat of the renowned original.
