I used to play this on Saturn. But it was 3D... those screens look 2D. Why? is this a port or a version?

Oh dear.. instead of bringing in the real 3D version, SEGA chose to bring the pseudo-3D version from Genesis.

Guess why? Because it runs on their Genesis emulator and for zero effort (putting in the .bin file in the emulator and wrap it), they'd get money. That's all they care about. Can't believe how lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy SEGA becomes thesedays.

I just wish the team that ported Chu Chu Rocket takes over the whole iSEGA department.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

I'm kind of used to saying: "Sega; I am disappoint." VF2 on the Megadrive/ Genesis was an OK game, but iOS could handle much more. A real conversion of Virtua Fighter, even the first one, would be brilliant, and Fighters Megamix would be mind-blowing. However, instead we have another emulation.

The Genesis version of Virtua Fighter? I know it takes zero effort to pump out these emulated efforts but that's not only cheap it's deceptive. Hopefully most people downloading this won't think it's a proper port or at the very least an original effort considering the Genesis version isn't well known.

yeah this is strange, not the version i remember....
the whole big deal about virtua figher was that it was 3d.
