This game works really well in many ways with fast paced combat that forces players on the offense all the time but as said by many, the balance issues causes certain favorites in character selection. So I say for the new revamped Continuum Shift, thank you Aksys!
The game itself looks really good. What killed it for me was the story mode and slow fighting.
In the story mode all the show are pictures of the characters and their voices talking, but no movement what-so-ever except for their mouths when they speak. The dialogue can be pretty long and boring since they don't do anything.
The fighting is pretty slow. Slower than Street Fighter IV and SFIV was at a decent pace, but I was expecting the speed to be faster since it was just 2D anime. This is what really killed the experience for me and I returned it as soon as I got a chance.
This game is horrible. THe story is probably the only thing good about it,other than that the controls are are slow and combos are hard to pull off. Story mode has way too much talking, i dont see why they just dont put video instead. 2 Thumbs Down
