It reminded me of exactly what made me abandon the Street Fighter franchise about 15 years ago: button-mashing stays fun for a very short time.
Granted, I knew not much had likely changed, the novelty of pitting the two franchises against one-another was the main draw. Unfortunately, what should have been an epic showdown were just boring, lazily spliced together cutscenes. The fighters lacked personality, every fight felt like a carbon-copy of the next.
People have waited for years to do these match-ups, and I just feel like SOMETHING more was needed. The roster also left something to be desired. Tekken: Roger, Jack, Armor King, EDDY GORDO! Who was one of the all-time best fighters in the series, none of them shipped with the disc. Street Fighter: Blanka, E. Honda, two mainstays were missing there.
Overall, the game just felt flat. I have slightly higher hopes for the Tekken formatted edition, but likely won't bother to ever play it.
Graphics were nice, combos and power-moves were easier to perform than in the last editions I'd played, and there were a few modes.
Overall - if you aren't typically a fighting gamer, or you left the series a few years back from lack of interest, this isn't the mind-changer that you may hope for.
there was things i liked and didnt like about this game i loved the gameplay and graphics those were awesomes and the team stuff was really cool. what i thought was dumb the story line and the endings and the random throw in people you can play as. it was a fun game
