Pretty Disappointed. The single player was boring they can't keep doing the same manga story over and over. The real time cinematic events are gone which were my favorite. The character selection screen is somewhat deceptive since some characters can't even be used.
I enjoyed just about everything in this game. I haven't played any of the preceding games, but that didin't seem to matter from other reviews I've seen on the game.
The Story Mode was good! I'm not up to date on the anime, so I skipped some to avoid spoilers, but the overall experience of it was fun. Other modes were fine...I wish that there was an Arcade Mode available.
The only major downer in this game was the Online Modes. The online community for the PS3 in this game was not very robust. In the time I spent in Online Mode, there was not a single good match where the connection was above 2 bars (4 bars of connection was the max). Needless to say, there was too much lag and too many disconnections.
All in all:
IF THE ONLINE MODE COMMUNITY WAS BETTER, THIS GAME WOULD HAVE GOTTEN A 9/10 FROM ME INSTEAD OF A 6.

Just giving my quick opinion on this game. I gave it a 5 because it has it's ups and downs. On the up side I always liked the game play but not to much has changed from the 2nd part. I mean I'm a fan but theirs a lot they could of changed to make the whole game better. Only seems like they just added a few char's and say heres a new game for ya.
For the story, I think think they should of ended it a long time ago. Was a fan of the manga also, Not really going into that because I'm not here to QQ.
Overall, I would say it's a alright game if you have someone to play or just playing for the story. I would also only spend about $30 bucks on this game, it's not worth any where near $60.
Just my opinion about this game so take it or leave it.
