EGM Scores VIRTUA FIGHTER 5 as 9.5/10

EGM has awarded Virtua Fighter 5 on the PS3 the prestigious honour of game of the month, scoring an insanely high overall Mark of 9.5. Looks like Crackdown has some strong competition on its hands. Interestingly, this is the HIGHEST score EGM has awarded over the past six months.

That game must be laced with crack or something, EGM is a tough magazine. I like the magazine because its fair and actually cuts into the meat and potatos of a game. Gears of War, while a great game for its genre is nothing revolutionary. Its basically Killswitch with updated graphics, the story doesn't really evolve nor does the characters have any real depth to them. Based on that I can't believe that some magazines scored it 10s and 9s for just looks alone. I'm not saying that its not fun, but ratings should reflect more than just graphics. Cliffy B did revitalize the genre with his creation, I just like a little more meat with my potatos.

I like the virtua Fighter series, real die hard fight fans will eat you alive. I have to say this is the most indepth fighting game ever made and it only uses three buttons. Button mashers have no chance against a seasoned pro and timing is everything. I can't wait to check this out hopefully it will be up for download on the PSN.

What does Gears of War have to do with this thread?

A game on the PS3 actually broke 89% on score (Resistance). It's about time! Can't wait to play it on 360. :P

However, it's an average based on only 2 reviews. This game could easily drop dramatically as more review come in. Or it could increase.

HOLY SHIZ-NIT SON.. Your mad smart yo. Like for reals .(Just busting your ballz)lol. Anyways lets see system launch Nov. 2006. Date of "Finally"- Feb. 2007


System Launch Nov. 2005
Finally(as you put it) Came around March 2006

It would appear that PS3 is right on target if not slightly ahead of the game. More ooooo's and aaaaaaa's to come. Stay tuned kiddies.

Im a little shocked though. I wasnt even lookin out for this game. Bring on the Tekken 6 baby. But this will be a nice AAA fighter to hold me down and by the time they port it I should be rocking Tekken 6 by then. Timing is everything. lol
