Stumbled across this will flicking through an Oct '99 issue of UK style mag The Face. In amongst the heroin chic models and endless perfume ads is a review of VF3tb on the DC by Peter Lyle. Here's an extract. VF3tb could happily keep you glued to your TV untill the emergence of the next chapter. You can learn the rules in minutes, but trying to master its intricacies often feels like a hopeless task. And while the game is visually stunning, it's the purity of the game-playing experience that stays with you. There are no flashy gimmicks, no signs of cinematic ambition, and no meaningful attempts at plotting. The concept is simple enough - you kick the shit out of your opponent - but VF3tb is actually one of the most complicated, clever videogames ever. Closest i've seen a mag review capture the spirt of VF, and this from a style mag too !
