Aside from the gorgeous visuals, there unfortunately isn't much to this game. It's a fairly uninspired 2-d fighter with 3-d models, with the usual assortment of "Street Fighter" special moves. Quarter circle forward and punch, and so forth.
If you need to chew up some time, and like fighting games, go ahead and try it. It's all been done before, and better. With Street Fighter IV, Tekken 6 and BlazBlue already out there, this one doesn't offer anything better or new.

I really enjoyed this one. unlike it faster brother "guilty gear" it still holds a lot to love.
The characters are very well design from the small night marco to the gigantic dovalvle. every one has a unique fighting style and super. The control scheme is very easy to just pick up and play with your friends, nothing to difficult that you will have to sit for hours to learn and with the xbox achievements it gives the game replay value.
so i suggest if your a fighting game fan dont pass this one up!

I like fighting games as much as the next person, but this one just left me feeling flat.
When it starts up the menus remind me of a gameboy game.. then you start the "story" and good Lord is it wordy! Text boxes pop up and just hit A everytime someone is done talking to move onto the next part of the conversation. Reminded me a great deal of Pokemon on the DS. All the vocals are in Japanese so if you care what people are saying you need to read the boxes.. after about 2 min of a super long conversation I decided I didn't care and just hit A as fast as I could to get to the action.
The gameplay itself is ok, think Street Fighter or Mortal Combat type still.. typical fighter. Same with the online play.. nothing special.. just average.
The average game play would have been a lot more fun had all that text not been there. These conversations seem to go on forever.. it really kills your motivation to even play the story. I gave up after about 15 minutes and took a nap. (all that reading is bound to make anyone sleepy)
Bottom Line: If you like wordy fighters you'll be thrilled. If you want a unique exciting fighter.. pass
