When we talk about some of the best years ever in terms of gaming one cannot help but look back at the early 00’s when consoles such as the PlayStation 2 was released worldwide. There were so many exciting fighting titles that were released during the early 00’s including Virtua Fighter 4 which was developed by Sega AM4 and released in arcade centers in 2001. While Namco’s Tekken 4 might have been slightly more popular than Virtua Fighter 4 it was still considered to be a pretty solid fighting title for both the Sega NAOMI 2 system and the PlayStation 2. Just about everything about this game seemed impressive from the intro to the graphics all the down to the actual gameplay. Virtua Fighter 4 had featured several top characters from the previous games including Akira Yuki, Pai Chan, Lei Fong, Jeffry McWIid, Sarah Bryant, Jacky Bryant and others. While many people enjoyed the original PS2 version of Virtua Fighter 4 some would probably prefer the Evolution edition that was released in 2003.
The Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution edition had included an excellent training mode which was very effective in helping players become better at the game. Also, the Quest Mode in Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution was probably one of the main features of the game that many people were impressed by. The inclusion of a ranking system along with the addition of a currency and an in game item shop were among many things that contributed to Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution being a significant improvement over its predecessor Virtua Fighter 3. Even though, some people might argue that Virtua Fighter 4 was not quite as popular as Tekken 4 when it was first released they would also tell that it does not take away fact that it was still a great 3D fighting title for the PlayStation 2. In fact, Virtua Fightter 4 for the PS2 was one of the best 3D fighting games of the early 00’s and would be considered a title that many people would include a classic.
