The overall game plays like a typical street fighter even with the addition of the Tekken characters. The new type of game play reminds me of Tekken Tag. The only major problem that I had with the game was with the online multiplayer. The online has a sound lag issue as well as with the lobbies being laggy. Ive asked around with the people Ive played against they've confirmed the same issues.

I would have gave this game a higher rating except for lack of special and super moves. Its a very good game but is really held back in my opinion by those two functions. With the lack of special and super moves you have to relay mostly on crossover combos. Just like SF3 and 4 you are limited to what you can or can not do.
Its fun for a minute, but gets kinda dull. The voice acting is horrible. Guile sounds like a drunken bafoon saying " LETS FIGHT ". I grew up on street fighter, but I guess maybe Im just tired of beating up the same people? Maybe if they added a better story, it might give me more reason to fight. Its also very buggy. Multiplayer suffers from lag and sound effect drop outs. I honestly never been into Tekken, so the added Tekken characters really gave me no interest. I mean seriously, how many more ways can you change up RYUs fire ball? The game play has gotten repetitive and predeictable. TIME TO BRING IN THE HOLLYWOOD writes Capcom and give more meaning behind the mindless bashing. I think street fighter 4 is MUCH BETTER.
