Cool Movie for a Great Game

"Virtua Fighter is one of those franchises that have been around for a while - and for a good reason. The fighting games have always been fun to play, especially Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution whom many may say is the best fighting game out there.The movies are, I believe, keeping up with the games when it comes to quality. The characters included in the game is basically up to Virtua Fighter 3TB, which includes everybody except the newcomers (Lei Fei, Vanessa, Aoi, Brad Burns, etc) that came in Virtua Fighter 4 and Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution. You get to see each character and their martial art discipline shine throughout the movies. In fact, one of my favorite things about the movies is how it gives you a more detailed explanation of a specific special move that the character is using. It's like watching both a great cartoon and a martial art move overview.The soundtrack is quite catchy, and I must say that both the English and Japanese versions are nicely done. What I do not like in many cases is when songs get translated, people tend to shove the translation into the same melody, which oftentimes make the song sound rushed. This time, the English and the Japanese soundtracks are different.The first round has started - and what a great start it is!"
