I rented this game to play as Cole and Megaman, being a big fan of the Infamous and Megaman series. I've played Street Fighter before and thought it was decent but nothing I'd ever put $60 on. This game introduced me to Tekken and I think I may like the characters from that series better than SF - who always came off as stereotypes and clichés to me. Marvel vs Capcom 3 introduced me to a bunch of cool Marvel characters that I never knew anything about and this game did the same for Tekken. I may have to play the Tekken series now.
The gameplay is very close to Street Fighter 4, but it seems more accessible. Combos don't seem as difficult. Characters don't feel stiff when you've just started the game and haven't learned any of the more advanced combos. You'll probably still get destroyed in the multiplayer by people who have spent weeks worth of hours playing this game, but at least it feels like everyone stands some chance.
I grew up with Tekken, but I wasn't a big street fighter fan. However, this didn't stop me from playing Street Fighter IV when it came out. Street Fighter X Tekken is a game that combines two of the best fighting games in the world into one package. This game may be a little difficult for people have or haven't played either of the two series, but once you known the controls, it's a piece of cake. Good game, but practice a lot.
