I found this game to be a touch on the difficult side for my liking. You're given tutorials to help you learn the system, but even those can be a bit too challenging. In the end I just resorted to lowering the settings to make the game easier, and was able to have a pretty good time with it, but it feels like I'm missing out on valuable parts of the game by not really knowing how to do the more complex combos. It's especially discouraging when an opponent will pull off some nasty combo that makes me say, wow, I'll probably never know how to do that.
If you're really into fighters I can see how you might get a kick (pun intended) out of the complexities this game has to offer, but for me it was just too much.

I would first like to write that Graphically, the game is amazing! It plays well without a hitch and the tutorials REALLY go in depth here and teach you how to play. However, when I got into the game, and finally found a character I could get into, I found the gameplay to be someone closed off- not a ton of aerial/throws/specials for my liking. I will say that I'm a big fan of Marvel v Capcom and that type of fighter is more of my style. The game is definitely worth the rent- but I played about two hours with this and was bored. Good controls, doesn't make use of the touch screen though, which is ok for a fighter! Very good port of the original
From the start this game is amazing. The options will overwhelm you but will also keep you tied for hours on end.
The look and feel are strickly for anime fans as all the moves and story fit its source perfectly. As that goes anyone turned off by anime can still find a great time in Vs mode.
All in all, great game and feels at home on its new system, Vita. This one is a keeper.
