I rented this game and optioned to buy it. I'm a huge SF fan but I've always been a little disappointed with the speed of SF4. SXT is an extremely fast game that uses some big combos. One mistake in this game can spell doom.
One of the big draws for me with this game is the ability to do do co-op ranked matches with a friend. Makes the whole competitive experiences way more fun.
Some people hate this game and I can see why. If you're not a high level player you'll probably get rolled. Worth renting if you're on the fence.
If you like fighting games, this is it. I have many other fighting games including the new street fighter and mortal kombat (xbox 360) and this is way better than both!! Smooth combos and amazing move list to help you dominate the opponent. Good controls! by my regard, this game rates atleast a 9/10. A must play for the fighting game guru!! Pick it up. Ill see you on if your man enough....
