have not played this version, but from the looks of it, this is the VF2 port from the sega genesis. I played the saturn and true PC versions and this is not it. Be warned!

A Piece Of Gaming History, But Times Have Changed

CrimsonWizard | Jan. 15, 2013 | See all CrimsonWizard's reviews »

Virtua Fighter 2 is a fighting game formerly in arcades and Sega's consoles where the simple set up is: You're in a tournament, knock your opponent's teeth out! Like most fighting games of the time, there is little to no story in the actual game itself. Understandable considering it was an arcade game which relied on people quickly shelling out quarters, but it doesn't help endear the player to the characters in this day and age.

In fact, that's the general vibe of this game, great for it's time, but horribly dated by today's standards. While the 2.5D fighting environments were very innovative for 1994, today's fighting game's have learned many lessons from this and each other's earlier entries, improving upon the old formula here. While something like Street Fighter 2 still holds enough charm and polished gameplay to be fun these days, Virtua Fighter 2 just feels a bit clunky from graphics to the actual controls.

While I can't give this a recommendation for the average customer, a fighting game fan may be interested in this title. It does show one of the more successful steps companies took into the fighting game genre after Street Fighter 2's success. However, you would be better off spending your money one of the newer fighting games out there like Street Fighter 4 or so on.

Great fighting game but very dated

Virtual Fighter 2 paved the way for 2.5D fighting games. Its innovation in environmental design was groundbreaking and it was a pretty big hit. It's not Tekken or Street Fighter, there is no juggling or button mashing. Virtua Fighter uses technique and knowledge above all else.

This is where the Virtual Fighter series got its start. If you can get past the dated graphics, you're in for a treat.

Not worth it anymore.

This was a good 3D fighting game overshadowed by the great Tekken series of that era. Still it was a perfect beat em up for PC fans. But I think its a little too late for this title to hold any interest for me. Fighting movements doesn't feel right anymore. The game should only be bought for nostalgia. And one more thing Graphics are a sore sight after 17 years.

Outdated

A long time ago, this game was a blast. Nowadays, with games like Tekken and Soul Calibur, it just feels old, clunky and outdated. Maybe worth it if you're feeling nostalgic, as it's very cheap. Or if you have no consoles, because there aren't many 3D fighters on PC.

Classic good game.

Virtua Fighter is really nice "fighting game". Graphic is old and unattractive, but you can still having fun by playing this game. If you like games like "Tekken", you should try this "Virtua". It won't disappoint you.

An old gem, faded by time

Aladar | May 24, 2011 | See all Aladar's reviews »

There is no denying that Virtua Fighter 2 was a hit when it first came out - and the PC fans were especially glad, because, well, what else was there that wasn't ages old already? Unfortunately, 17 years after it's release, it isn't such a great game. Sure, for PC fans, there weren't much other choices, but even then, the gameplay is very dated for today's standarts, feels very sluggish, and it's once breakthrough graphics now seem laughable and ugly. This is one of the games that won't probably be as great as you remember it.
