First things first...The game was beautiful. Great selection of characters and options. Several gameplay modes offer replayabilty. However, in the end, I guess I must just be spoiled by SF4. This game still has the Virtua fighter feel it's known for, which some people like, but I feel like the game hasn't changed. This game, to me, was no different than Tekken3, 4, or 5. Good but not great.
The only 2 draw backs to this game are the excessive loading times. And that everything comes unlocked at the beginning. Usually I wouldnt have a problem with that but that was always one of the best parts, unlocking characters gave you a little more to play for.
