Summary: Launching just seven months ago on consoles, it seems that Street Fighter X Tekken never really caught on in the fighting game community. Some would argue this was a result of the quality of the game itself, but a bit of controversy surrounding the on-disc DLC and confusion about which characters would appear where certainly didn't help matters. Having said that, back in February, we told you that with Ultimate Marvel vs.
Conclusion: Anybody who is a fan of Capcom’s fighting series should add this to their library of games as it is a totally awesome game! If you have ever played any of the Street Fighter games of the past, you will feel right at home with this. It is loads of fun and people of all skill levels will be able to pick up and play the game without much of any issues. The fast paced action and glamorous visuals will surely keep you glued to your seats for a long time coming..
Pros: Street Fighter X Tekken offers a healthy variety of fighters from both sides, on the S treet Fighter side you will find the regulars, Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and on the Tekken side you will see the likes of Jin, Heihachi, and Hwoarang among others. The fighting in the game is very fast paced and always keeps you at the edge of your seat. It is fairly easy to pick it up and play but of course the controls and play mechanics go a lot deeper for those hardcore fans out there; ...
Cons: The game is difficult to play if using the regular controllers for both XBOX 360 and PS3; combinations and special moves are hard to pull off with the use of these controllers. If you have the money I would suggest getting the Arcade fight stick from Mad Catz or their fight pad, which makes playing the game a whole lot easier! And in case you do happen to play online with the game and are using a regular controller, be prepared to fight somebody who may be using one o...
Excerpt: Street Fighter X Tekken is the latest game in Capcom’s 21st-century fighter renaissance, and it looks set to continue the winning streak started by Street Fighter IV . Ever since SFxT’s first announcement we’ve had one burning question: How can Capcom integrate Tekken’s cast of 3D brawlers into the gameplay mechanics of a 2D fighting game?
Pros: Large cast of spiffy badasses, Frantic blend of SF, MvC & Tekken, Absurd new combo possibilities
Cons: Frequent online lag issues, Single-player boring as usual, DLC mania, no Xbox 360 extras at launch
Excerpt: God it's daunting, isn't it? That first time you dip into a new fighting game's training modes and it hits you like a wave – you've got to learn. It all. Again. Those hours spent glaring at bright lights of the pristine training room memorising links and chains, the mental exhaustion of perfecting the microsecond timing between combo attacks, the constant trips to the pause menu's command list and the bounty of stick-snapping complexity hidden therein… You'll do it,...
Summary: At the end of the day, Street Fighter X Tekken is still a great fighting game. It has its issues, namely the online multiplayer component and the underwhelming menus, but there's still good fun to be had.
Pros: Core fighting gameplay is top-tier, Visually pleasing art style and flashy super moves, Solid PlayStation 3 exclusive content
Cons: Online multiplayer component can be a mess, A little too many mechanics layered over each other, Too much time spent going back and forth through menus
Conclusion: Both of us enjoyed our time with SFxT . It does a lot of things right and is a blast to play competitively and casually. Unfortunately, Capcom's choices with DLC may have damned the game to a shorter time in the spotlight.
Excerpt: Who would have thought this day would come to pass? Characters from Street Fighter and Tekken, arch-rivals in the fighting genre, star in a cross-over that will blow your socks off! Street Fighter X Tekken (with the ‘X’ pronounced ‘cross’) is essentially a Street Fighter game that contains Tekken characters, so fans of the Tekken graphic and control style will have to wait for Tekken X Street Fighter.
