This game is perfect for: kid gamers
Virtua Fighter 4 is a game that appeals to fans of arcade style fighting games. The controls are highly responsive which makes the game easy to pickup and learn to play. The in game graphics are rather good for the time. And, I’d enjoyed my single run through the arcade mode as Pai for the most part. The later bouts start to show the parry system at work which I didn’t even attempt to use. You can win arcade mode on the beginner level using a combination of rushing opponents, kicking opponents into submission, or allowing them to throw the first punch and responding with a devastating combo when they miss. The bonus stage though proved far too much for me. I was easily defeated by the A.I. without landing a single blow.
I kind of knew what I was getting into when purchasing this game at my local Gamestop. I was getting mid 1990's graphics, mid 1990's sounds and gameplay. Now I'm not to terribly disappointed that I bought this game, it's just a little "cheese ball" for my tastes. The game is pretty straight forward, easy to use controller button commands, just like one may remember with these type of games in the late 80's to early 90's at the video arcade, definitely this game has "arcade" written all over it. I don't know if the adults will enjoy this, but I'm sure the little kids will.
