REVIEW – Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown (XBLA)

Straight Forward Virtua Fighter 5 was originally released on 360 and PS3 way back in 2007.  Proving its age, one of the highlighting features was online play.  But can a re-release of a half-decade old fighter go toe-to-toe with the other fighting games of 2012?
