The core game is fine, if light on content outside of Arcade and online. The fights themselves are also passable, despite feeling a little stiff on occasion. The problem is that, in a world with games like Strive and Tekken, Virtua Fighter still feels like a game from 2006. Fifteen years ago, Virtua Fighter was a strong series, but the lack of evolution hampers the appeal.
