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 Sure it might be outdated today, but back than it was a revolution for fighting games.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

 3D Galaxy Force II - Nintendo 3DS
"Cheers to Galaxy Force! Now bring it on in 4D!!" - WindSquid

 Astal - Sega Saturn
"A very unique, fun, and odd platformer for the Saturn! Astal can do many different things to get through each level. You can pick up enemies and throw them, an airial attack, an actual air attack, and a litle bird sidekick who can fetch you health and even attack enemies as well! The game is quite challenging however and the limited lives and continues is it's only downfall. Most the time its all about figuring out how to handle each situation you're in, especially the bosses." - Truxton4life

 Tetris - NES
"Wouldn't that be nice if all the world leaders could solve their problems with whoever gets the highest score in Tetris? Now there's a solution we all can agree with. Seriously though, Tetris is such a good puzzle game it will never be outdated. Pick this one up if you haven't already, it's pretty common, and get Tetrisized." - grandmasterp

 Hello Kitty Kruisers - Wii U
"Not going to lie, that music is bad ass." - scarecrowchan

 Test Drive II: The Duel - Sega Genesis
"The graphics are very dated and it's very hard to drive and not crash." - segagtstig6940
