GamesBeat: Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is a triple-A fighting game with an iffy price tag

Virtua Fighter 5 is getting pretty long in the tooth. The original version hit Japanese arcades in the summer of 2006. Console versions came home worldwide less than a year later.

Now, Sega offers to sell us a mildly upgraded version of a product that’s more than five years old. It’s a testament to what a solid fighting game this is that they can just about get away with it.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown has some irritating flaws, especially thanks to an oddball pricing structure. At the core of it all, though, lies some of the best 3D martial arts around. That’s enough to make it worth a download. (PS3, Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, Xbox 360) 70/100
