Virtua Fighter 5 Online is Released for the Xbox 360

Virtua Fighter 5 (バーチャファイター5, Baachafaitaa 5) is the latest game in Sega's Virtua Fighter series and direct sequel to Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution.

The original version was released on July 12, 2006 into Japanese arcades. A revised version (called "Version B") was ported on the PlayStation 3 on February 20, 2007 (despite the advertised date of February 23) and was a launch title for the console's European release on March 23, 2007. The Xbox 360 port of arcades' "Version C", was released in October 2007 in North America and Europe.

Virtua Fighter 5 is a fantastic fighting game. The fighting system is deep, complex, and wonderful. If only the other elements surrounding VF5 were of equal measure. The presentation is fairly standard stuff and the Quest Mode should be online. It would be unfair to hold the 360's poor d-pad against AM2, but know that if you want to get the most out of VF5, you should pick up the HORI arcade stick. If you love fighting games, there's really no choice but to pick up VF5.
