Weak

I'm Losing Faith in Capcom's Abili

This review is purely my opinion and based on how much I enjoyed the game. With that being said, I'm a bigger fan of the Tekken series than Street Fighter. That has not stopped me from playing the Street Fighter games at all. I've been playing since Street Fighter 2 back on the Genesis.

The Good:
- Great graphics
- Huge Selection of Fighters
- Smooth Fighting
- An actual story
I will say this. If you are getting this game for a single player experience, you will be extremely disappointed. The story is pretty weak

The Bad:
- The game isn't fun
I was super hyped for this game to come out and when it finally did I felt let down. The fighting is smooth but broken. The combo system felt like a cheap version of MK3. You can do combos for days with ease and if you get a person in a corner... it's over.
- Balancing for Online
This game has so many cheap moves that its stupid. These are in turned exploited online. Capcom has made the game in a way that allows cheap players to excel by doing the same move over and over again. There aren't any True Combo breakers so you will just have to deal with being destroyed until you learn how to be cheap. If you don't believe me, go play a day of Online. You'll see.....
- Most Tekken fans will not enjoy this game
As started above, I love Tekken. I was hoping to hop on this game and have a bunch of fun....this was not the case. Yes, it is cool to see them in the SF world but playing this game only made me wish there was a new Tekken game out. Playing each character only made me wish for more fleshed out gameplay.

Summary:
This game was a huge let down for me. I was expecting some thing awesomely unique like MvC or CvS but.....we got some a game that is just a dumbed down SF4 with Tekken characters. This game is not worth your $60. If your REALLY into fighting games, then try you might like it but for most people they will be disappointed. I hope Namco does a better job with TxSF because SFxT was bad in my opinion.

It was a good game and no doubt fun. But the only problem I have is it doesn't have a "story mode" though if you want the story you can play online and turn off game requests. Being a big fighting game fanatic, I felt that it didn't equally live up to each title. I think I am a average player, having beat some fighting games in one day, but the this game is overcrowded with foreign players that dominate continually, which can be no fun. But then again maybe this inst my game. Either way its a decent game.

I am a HUGE Tekken fan! When I first heard the news back in 2010 about the Tekken cast and the Street Fighter cast coming together in the same game, I was in heaven! I had always thought having these two come together would make an epic game! After two years of endless waiting my heart has been crushed! This game is sooo disappointing in my opinion! I cannot speak for everyone of course... Anywho, being a Tekken fan and having to play in 2-D with the horrible water color look of Street Fighter.... Can't do it! And why is everyone speaking Japanese?! Ken speaking Japanese.... right.... The whole gem idea feels cheap! I take that back, it is cheap! Activate a gem and all the sudden have all this strength you didn't have before! More ways to make it less of a challenge! Over all the game is just like playing Street Fighter 4, only difference is you have poorly 2-D Tekken characters splashed in water colors. In my opinion, if you are a Tekken fan, this game is not for you! The only reason I gave this game a 6 is because of the idea.
