This game blew my mind when it first came out, a 3d fighting game?!? Even with the floaty jumps this game was amazing, the graphics and animation were so far ahead of other games like Tekken (I'm not sure which one came out first) and the gameplay was a blast. Sure it might be outdated today, but back than it was a revolution for fighting games. Even with the graphics so plain and simple though the game looks great even today.

I remember when this came out, it was such a breath of fresh air after the 5 billion mortal kombat / SF2 clones that had proceeded it. To bad the Mega Drive / Genesis version didn't do the arcade justice.

Clumsy yet endearing. Anyone used to classic 2D brawlers should be warned there will be a lot of readjusting to play Virtua Fighter. It's a 3D fighter restricted to movement on a 2D plane with dodges that can move your character in the third dimension. You'll be fighting against the controls to get anything done in game. Character movement is very awkward and the AI is god mode difficult. The cabinet looks really nice and features some basic, yet cool side art. Despite all this, it is a fun game

Great early 3D fighting game and a nice arcade machine to boot. I never played SFII in arcades so this and the Capcom Marvel games were the main arcade fighting games I grew up with.
