I picked this up from word of mouth. Having been a little burned out on SF4 and being crushed how bad the recent KOF was, I was hoping for this to be at least a decent fighter.
Instead, I was assailed with depth and magnificence, the likes of which I could never have expected and didn't expect from a fighter. This is literally, SO GOOD a fighter that I forsook all else to play it for a month and I am just going to have to buy it now. I could gush all day about how great this is, but nothing will convince you like holding it in your hands, seeing the hi-def animation, feeling the rush of the fight and realizing the depth of the game. I like this so much I'm going to go buy Guilty Gear.
The opening alone was pretty impressive, but the fact that every game more rocks harder than the next and the online modes are, while not quite as friendly or interactive as SF4, they are quite good and the guys on there a a challenge worth greeting.
Try it. Just... TRY IT. Don't listen to me gushing, don't listen to guys pouring gasoline on it. This is something you NEED to experience if you have any taste in 2-D fighters, or fighting games in general.

Everybody knows about Street Fighter and lots of people know about Soul Calibur, which are both amazing fighting games. This fighting game has it up points. Like the depth of the controls. Learning all the controls in this game if you dont know them already will take you a long time, so just be wary of that. A big down side of this games story mode is that the cut scenes are really long and most of them are god awfully boring. But all you have to do is mash the a button and you can get to some fighting. Maybe one of the biggest up sides about this game is how fun online is. You can play player matches and ranked matches and theyre all very, very fun. So overall if you like fighting games, you shouldnt pass this game up at all, if your new to fighting games aswell you might just want to rent this game.
