I myself have played pretty much every Street Fighter game that is available out there, including the very first Street Fighter game. And I believe my first Playstation game was Tekken 1. I have loved fighting games since I was a little kid, and I in fact, wanted to get this game, but because of some negative reviews on this game by some people, I decided to just stay away from it for a while. Now that it was on a Steam sale, I have decided to buy it, and well, I am not really sure why people would give bad ratings to this game....sure, you can't really use the Tekken characters like you normally would in the original Tekken games, as the one that made this game is Capcom, but those Tekken characters still maintain their own character even in this game. It kind of sucks that Jin is kind of hard to use in this....or I should say, he either sucks or is for the real hardcore players....or possibly, I simply don't understand how he works in this game yet. But Jin kind of does not really feel like the Jin in the Tekken series. It sucks even more because you can't use Devil Jin, either.
But yes, other than that, I think this is pretty a decent fighting game. I like how so easy it is to do combos and it just feels so good when you successfully execute chain combos using two of your characters. I in fact loved Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which I thought it was the best Tekken game yet, and personally, I would like to say Street Fighter x Tekken is simply the best fighting game I have ever played. Perhaps I am exaggerating, but the fact remains. The game is just damn good. You can also mod the costumes, which are available on the internet or you can simply make your own by using a certain program, so the replay value is there. All I can say is that the game is rather underrated in my opinion. The game is definitely not as bad as people say it is.
Well, it might be because I am a fan of Street Fighter and Tekken series, but I don't know. I believe if you are a fighting game fan, you'd love it in my opinion.
