A couple of years ago I bought myself a copy of the DC port of VF3TB, despite knowing that it was looked at and treated as a sort of “black sheep” of the VF series, wasn’t even the best DC fighting game (but one of the easiest to find) and played differently to all other VF’s. Not to mention the DC control pad was horrible for this game and it’s pretty much sat untouched since I bought it almost 5 years ago. At least the game has a kick-ass soundtrack…
So negative reviews aside, how much play and fame did VF3 get when it came out??? I remember it getting attention mostly because of it’s then-mind-blowing graphics (OMG Lau’s eyes are tracking you!!!) and not because of the gameplay. I’ve been browsing youtube for some VF3 vids (dunno if I could post up the links), and surprisingly I found a whole lot of interesting Japanese vids. Almost makes me wanna keep my copy…except that I have yet to own a stick for any system. Those guys really did dissect and eat up that game, but over here it was just overpriced eye candy.
So…any tier lists and whatnot for this game??? Also:
What was the whole controversy behind the accuracy of the Dreamcast port of VF3??? I recall people throwing their arms up and shit over the DC ports of VF3 and Sega Rally 2, saying how they were disappointing and inexcusable.
Are the rumors of a Saturn port of VF3 which was near if not already completed before it was shelved (in favor of the DC port) true??? It was sure an anticipated title for the Saturn, but the Saturn was already stretched to it’s limits with the flawed VF2 port ( a second-gen title). Model 3 games on Saturn= Perhaps I should chalk this up with all those other promised/cancelled Sega ports such as Daytona/Panzer Dragoon/Clockwork Knight on 32X (I’ve SEEN pics of those…forgot which site) and Sega Super GT/Daytona 2 on Dreamcast.
The original VF…did it get any play/tourney play??? Hell why not mention the original Tekken while we’re at it…I’m a sucker for those old, first-gen 3D fighters.
