Short Pro/Con Summary

Pro:

+Still a rare genre (fighting game) on PC.
+Cute and funny graphics.
+Unique gameplay (fighting with main + support char. )
+Trading cards

Cons:

-Only Arcade and local VS mode.
-No online matches (except of a mod that will allow you to play online)
-No tutorials. (So it's absolutely beginners unfriendly)
-Only few skills avalable per char.
-No true widescreen support (But I don't have any probs with the stretched screen)
-No original language in ROW version. (In my opinion original language of a game should always be implemented)
-DLC Policy. (Different DLCs avalable, but the latest DLC already includes the older DLC? That's a punch into the face for people who bought the old DLC and have to buy the new one as well)

To be honest, I like this game for casual playthroughs from time to time, but sadly there are no factors that keeps up your longtime motivation.

So, only recommandable for those who wants to collect all the fighting games avalable on Steam.

*I think $4,99 USD would be a fair price if the DLCs were included in it.

+ Controls are simple and responsive
+ Smooth, fluid animations
+ Boasts a noticeably enjoyable soundtrack
+ Creative and interesting character designs, something the anime community is known for

- Each playable character has no more than 6 combos
- Very low maximum resolution
- Little replay value to speak of
- Virtually unplayable without an XBOX 360 controller
- No extras or unlockables of any kind
- No online multiplayer support (there is a third-party workaround, however, that can remedy this)
- Only two modes of play (story and local co-op versus)
- Cannot view move-list in-game; only availalbe via character selection or the game's manual
- Assist characters seem clumsy in practice, have a function that is not explained at all (no tutorial or practice included), and serve more to clutter the screen and distract one's focus
- The 'story mode' is, save for a few random injections of dialogue, virtually devoid of a story at all; what little there is consists of a brief paragraph before reaching the main menu, and is not built on or developed even remotely

Vanguard Princess (ヴァンガードプリンセス Vangaado Purinsesu?), also known as Vanguard Princess: Senjin no Himegimi (ヴァンガードプリンセス 先陣の姫君) is a Japanese freeware dōjin 2D fighting game for Windows, developed by a single programmer and illustrator Tomoaki Sugeno nicknamed Suge9. The game was created using Fighter Maker 2nd was released for PC on June 26, 2009.

Great Waifu Fighting Simulator. 2 on 2 fighting game. The story of this game is really cool. The music is amazing and fits perfectly. The visuals are very b eautiful, but sadly this game is launched in windows mode and that window is very small. The controls aren't bad, but the fighting system could be better. This game has a bit of fan service so you will see BOUNCING OPPAI and PANTSU SHOTS. Boobs bouncing physics are very good. Who wouldn't like to fight in an empty swimming pool with highschool girls with swimsuits?

Vanguard Princess is a 2D animé fighting game in which you can pick one of the 10, short skirted, cute girls and start bashing eachothers heads in.

I'm not really a big fan of animé but the game does look quite good. The gameplay is pretty neat aswell, every fighter has her own unique skills and the game simply does what a fighter should do, so there's no real problem in that department.

The reason why I will not recommend this game is because of a few reasons.
For one, There are only two modes: Arcade and Versus mode, which would be ok if there were any unlockables or something to play for, sadly there is not so the replay value is very low.
Also, there is no online multiplayer, you are able to play someone locally but that means you both have to share a keyboard since (in my experience) I could not get my controller to work.
But the worst part of the game must be that the game feels (and probably is) like an emulator game. You can only change options if your game is windowed and it simply does not feel right.

Overall, Vanguard Princess is at it's core a good fighting game but not one you would spend a lot of time in.
