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 Sure it might be outdated today, but back than it was a revolution for fighting games.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

v fighter rocks. but it has been pushed aside by the new titles.

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.

 Bully - PlayStation 2
"A fantastic Rockstar game. The boarding school was never boring or empty and going to class was actually fun. Like all RS game I wanted to see what happened to Jimmy Hopkins and had a great time playing through Bully." - pottsy69

 Bulletstorm - PlayStation 3
"A very fun FPS with great re-playability. The unique weapons and wonderful skillshots are a breath of fresh air. I wasn't sold on the story but the fun and addictive gameplay is what's important. Like shooters, check this out." - pottsy69

 Xbox Controller S - Xbox
"I have a few big problems with this controller. 1: its general bulkyness, making it feel a bit uncomfortable and non-ergonomic. 2: Its lack of bumpers, like those found on the 360 controller. And 3: the D-pad, which feels really cheap and can be unresponsive at times (although admittedly its really comfortable and easy on the thumb). These problems do not ruin the controller; rather, they keep it from ranking among the greatest controllers ever made. In the end, it's still a good controller." - Smash Bros Maestro

 Sears Electronic Numbers Game - Crappy Handhelds
"Fun fact, same procedure to hack computer is used in Fallout 3/New vegas." - secuda

 Fighter Maker - PlayStation
"You can make the hell out of a fighter...and then plunk it right in the middle of a very mediocre engine. Pass." - sherberttcat
