Overused characters, incomprehensible control map, and bizarrely unintuitive "gem system" makes this more or less unplayable.

Capcom Vet

Being a Capcom/Street Fighter fan it was a real adrenaline rush waiting for this game to fill my mailbox. All the charecters you expect to see from both worlds are there. Brining them both together is something that I always imagined what would it be like.
A new gem system has been added to this production of Capcom. Speed, strenght, defense and many others you might find a necessary or just great to use. Either way it is one thing that will keep you playing for awhile. Thier is just one catch. Some of the more valuable(your chose either way) gems you have to buy to own. If you do not check to store you could be mistaken and keep on playing thinking viewing them as a reward.
Getting the chance to beat up on the vets from both games in a single match is awsome. Some teams you could never imagine unless you played them are possible. Thier singnature moves just scream thier names out. (not literaly) For example any Capcom fan knows who executes you with a raging demon and who packs a punch with a demon god fist. They are all there along with great and humorus movements from other characters you might recongize in the back round of every stage.
Challenges are a extra plus that will keep you entertained for a long time. The fast paced action that is common among the earlier renditions of Street Fighter games is no longer there. Button mashing is nolonger effective. If fighting is all you like thier is a good chance you might like it.
I have been playing one of Capcoms longest and probley most famous fighting games since it came out in the early eighties. To get a charecter is nolonger a test of skill but of how deep you pocket is. It is like bying a grade on a math test. Though It sounds great it is not earned. It almost feels though the gamer is not the main issue anymore.

Being a classic Street Fighter fan, I had to get used to the 3D aspect of the characters and the gameplay in this new iteration. It is still fun and the character adaptation from the 2D side scroll to 3D side scroll is good. Worth a rental for sure.
