An okay fighter that is ruined by cheap tactics and poor design. You will take so much damage from cheap shots you have have no way to avoid, usually from enemies hiding off camera or taking potshots from afar. The camera is sluggish and cumbersome and the enemies seem to know this because more often than not they will wait for you at the tops of stairs and jump you before you can even see anything! The controls can feel clunky as well and I never felt fully in control of Ryu, falling and missing jumps/attacks as a result. Finally even on the easy difficulty the enemies sometimes felt really cheap and some bosses absolutely ridiculous and not in a good way.
I really wanted to like this game (and the series in general) but it just feels sloppy and not fun.

wow. I have spent an enormous amount of time on this game. I truly feel that this game is a masterpiece; there is a sort of harmony that comes when you finally get good enough at this game to Love it. Lets face it, this game is hard, not just hard but very very very hard. People say its too hard. keep whining and give up, youre not a good gamer. people say the camera sucks. keep whining, when you get far enough into the game the camera is irrelevant because you are moving too fast. all you see is blood and limbs flying. people say it is a button masher. Good luck, if you button mash you will not even come close to beating it. Im sick of games nowadays that in order to beat it you have to find the 77th cd or statue or some other stupid thing that takes NO SKILL at all. This game is requires skill, pure and simple, not luck, skill. in fact, when you get good enough, you learn how to slow the game down even though there is upwards of fifteen enemies attacking you all at once. there are so many weapons, all with different combos to unlock, it is so so fun and makes you feel so accomplished when you beat parts. It is amazing, this is not for someone who wants to play this game casually. If you can devote your time and effort into this game, and not give up like the other weaklings, you will discover a type of pride that you have never experienced before from a game. It is so rewarding and if you have the balls it is a Must have game. a game that to me is legendary. The fact that ive logged 1000+ hours in this game, never got sick of it, never experienced any glitches and still love it more than any other game ive ever played is testament to its greatness. Good Luck and Dont Give Up, and you will have the same experience as me. Thanks for reading.
I spent 15 mins fighting the camera to see where I am going, where the enemies are, or just to look forward when turning a corner. The action has potential but fighting the camera is so exhausting I didn't have the strength to finish the game.
