It wasn't good when it was released, what makes you think it would be good now?

Pros:
- Tekken and SF characters
- Panda Chun Li costume

Cons:
- Awkward new fighting system, doesn't appeal to either fanbase:
- Ugly graphics (lots of dumb glow effects for no reason)
- Some stupid gem system
- No one plays it online, have fun versing bots :^)

7/10 A good game with several severe drawbacks to it
Review for the Street Fighter X Tekken: Complete Pack version 1.08

Both the Street Fighter & the Tekken franchise are video game milestones. Capcom’s Street Fighter II (1991) became famous for introducing mechanics we nowadays perceive as normal, such as combos, cancellations, or lenient controls. Bandai-Namco’s Tekken series (1994 ongoing) then built upon this & Sega’s Virtua Fighter’s legacy (1993 ongoing) to sweep the market with 3D fighting arenas, new control schemes, more realistic fighting moves, & beginner friendly controls that displayed a remarkable, never before seen depth to them. It seems like a no-brainer for these two giants to meet up in this crossover from 2012. But whether this 2.5D mashup fared well or not, is a completely different question.

About the game
  • Mechanics
    • Movesets
      The mechanics & controls of both Tekken & Street Fighter could not be any further apart with one being build around 3D arenas while the other was made with 2D environments in mind. SFxT tries to solve this problem by greeting players with a surprisingly deep fighting mechanic that has multiple means of individualizing the characters’ movesets. Nevertheless, using Tekken characters does feel alien.
      http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=685384490
      Generally, the game shares several of the mechanics of the Street Fighter IV franchise (2008-2014), but adds optional, simplified special attacks (e.g. instead of ↓↘→Ⓟ just pressing ↘Ⓟ), customizable button combinations, & quick combos to make it easier for Tekken players & newcomers to find their way into the game. Simplified moves worked well in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom (2008) & sure enough do their job here.

    • Tag Team
      The tag team system is inspired by the Tekken Tag Tournament series (2000 ongoing) with tagouts either being performed through quick combos or by pressing medium kick & medium punch at the same time. The initial problem of the game was that the amount of damage dealt was too low & because each team possesses two healthbars, fights often ended in timeouts instead of KOs. After several patches, this was remedied, but fights can still be unnecessarily drawn out. On the upside, tag teams can even be created in online ranked matches and up to four players can duke it out at once.

    • Scramble
      The scramble mode is obviously the highlight of the on-/offline multiplayer experience, four players can play simultaneously in teams of two. The rounds are quick and chaotic, which just adds more to the fun.

    • Gems
      To further balance the game, SFxT has a gem mechanic. Each character can carry up to three gems at the same time, each having different effects & prerequisites to activate them. Although the gem system makes sense in theory, in practice it is a mess. The amount of available gems is way too large leading to a multitude of confusing combinations that discourage users from looking into this mechanic altogether. Even worse, a large amount of premium gems are only available as purchasable DLC, thus missing the point of being there to level the virtual battle field.

    • Pandora
      In theory Pandora is a great mechanic; sadly it’s not so much in practice. Players sacrifice one party member to temporarily boost the remaining protagonist's powers for a brief amount of time. Once Pandora runs out, the player automatically loses. Therefore it is key to knock the other party out swiftly; unfortunately, because of the game’s design, Pandora rarely helps win any rounds but instead causes players to lose. So, it’s hardly ever used.
      http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=685384665

  • Customization
    To individualize characters beyond the gems & customized button combinations, players can color their characters’ clothes. The feature even allows players to either wrap the characters in latex or neon glowing schemes (To see an example of a neon character, click here). Additionally, all base game characters have DLC outfits that are inspired by characters from both franchises.

  • Backlash
    The game had several issues when it first came out. Shaking life bars irritated players & low damage dragged matches out. But it was the DLC policy that ruined the game for many.

    • Controversy
      Although the SFIV series was known for its on-disc DLC, Capcom came under scrutiny upon SFxT’s initial release when it became public that several of the announced twelve DLC characters were already included on the game’s disc - locked behind a paywall that cost as much as many video games ($19.99 USD). More than that, the Playstation 3 & Vita releases of the game had five additional DLC characters, namely Toro Inoue, Kuro, Cole Mac Grath, Pac-Man, and Bad Box Art Mega Man, while the PC & Xbox360 releases did not receive any exclusives. Further, the Xbox 360 version received even more criticism as the online tag team bouts mentioned in the game's manual did not find their way into that version & were not patched in later on. The big disappointments over the game lead players to stay away from it altogether. After initial attempts, Capcom then decided to stop promoting the game.
      http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=688920867
    • Games for Windows Live
      For the longest time, Capcom refused to transfer both Street Fighter X Tekken & Resident Evil 5 over from Games for Windows Live to Steam Works. And while RE 5 received this treatment in 2015, SFxT still uses GfWL. Windows 10 users won’t have any problems logging in, but others will have to jump through hoops to get the game working in the first place. However, once that’s done, the game & other GfWL services will work just fine.

    • Online
      Sadly, due to its age, negative reputation, less popular design choices, & GfWL, the online population is considerably small & encountering cheaters who use lag switches or rage quit before they lose a match is not uncommon. The remaining players who don’t cheat are often times veterans who far outlevel any newcomers making it increasingly difficult for newcomers to win any matches at all.

  • Optimization
    There's not a lot to say about the game's graphic and control options. It's just as marvelous as with the SFIV series with different AA features, V-Sync, & completely customizable button configurations.

Conclusion
Despite it all, SFxT is a good game that suffered from questionable management choices which tarnished the game’s reception & subsequently was part of what discolored the company’s reputation for years to come. The arcade stories are fun and the animations have the right level of goofiness to stay refreshing. The PC port is marvelously optimized with tons of graphics options that even allow it to run on "toasters". It's definitely worth picking up for a fair price & is truly something that fans would want to check out.

I really loved this game a lot but... there is 3 things to have in consideration that blows all experience:
- Requires GLFW to be able to save data and play online and this services will be discontinued, the only game that capcom did showed interest to convert GLFW to SteamWorks was the Super Street Fighter IV, so probabily this game will became broken...
- The netcode isnt that great, why devs dont use GGPO netcode?
- Abusive DLC's in all kind ways: costumes, characters that the development were finished in release date and they decided to sold them way later in dlc release method, gems that influence the gameplay performance... so yeah...

This game relies on GFWL, a dead form of DRM that managed game saves. Sadly this game will never save any progress or anything ever, it may be removed from steam due to this. The developer has promised to NEVER update this game. That is strange for a dev to make such a bold statement. While Super Street Fighter will be updated to work on Computers, this game will never be updated. Who does that? What kind of dev makes a game and then never updates the game to even work? Has capcom gone bizzaro on us? Who knows, who cares, once their out of business or whatever their problem is, we can get games that work. Games made by Capcom that are awesome, but apparently its run by crazy people who escaped from an asylum.

http://shoryuken.com/2014/01/17/capcom-has-no-plans-to-transition-street-fighter-x-tekken-to-steamworks-after-games-for-windows-live-shutdown/

(It wont save progress so its almost unplayable but not entirely.)

Street Fighter x Tekken is a great fighting game held back by a lackluster netcode. I absolutely recommend the game for offline play sessions. If you're an Online Warrior, your money may best be spent elsewhere. (Reviewing GFWL Edition as Steam migration has not occured as of this review.)

Don't Buy!

This game is great! Worth buying, but it no longer works. I've tried to uninstall and reintall, and nothing. I've call the capcom support number, left messages with a call back number. Nothing. I'm the a computer type of guy and I'm not confident enough to try to fix the game myself.

Save your money. Buy something else. My review will change when I'm actually able to play this. Don't buy!
