My favorite fighting game was Street Fighter II until I overplayed it.
Then I got, Dead or Alive Ultimate which has good graphics but the game play wasn't that great. Blocking wasn't very consistent and it was hard to do counter moves.
I also got Soul Caliber III or IV, but I didn't really enjoy that game either.
Sword fighting isn't as interesting as kick boxing for me.
I also got King of the Fighters and Guilty Gear but it was like stepping back in time and I didn't want to play old 2D games anymore.
So far I like VF5. It has the best graphics I've seen and the blocking and counter punching is pretty responsive. Only thing I would criticize the game on is that all the fighters move differently with a wide variety of fighting styles. You get small tiny and gigantic fighters. You almost have to change your fighter depending on who you fight. Because one fighter does alot of high kicks, which works great with a tall opponent, but with a short one you always miss their head. I would prefer if everyone was just a karate fighter with a small variation of moves. Sometimes you press the kick button a couple of times and the fighter does some combos moves, but I prefer they just do one simple move twice. But overall I think it is definately worth the $40 bucks I paid for it.
