Summary: " Street Fighter X Tekken " is an excellent addition to the Vita’s line up. What is perhaps a shame though is that whilst Cross-play may be included, cross-buy isn’t, and neither can your saves be used across the two versions. So if you were interested in the game at launch, you’ve probably either already picked it up, or could get it much cheaper on the home consoles now.
Excerpt: for PS Vita showed up unannounced on my doorstep. "Really, Capcom, you want me to review this? But the stream monsters hate Cross Tekken!" But I gave it a fair shot, and a lot of things came flooding back to me from my review of the original
Excerpt: Have you ever played a crossover fighting game and wondered who could have possibly came up with the idea of meshing two completely different worlds into a ridiculous circus sideshow of a game? We’ve all been there at least once, and it’s usually not pretty. Luckily for fans of two fighting behemoths, Street Fighter X (Cross) Tekken delivers a game that not only ISN’T a massive disappointment, but it’s actually pretty darn good.
Fight two worlds in the palm of your hand — Street Fighter X Tekken PS Vita Review

Excerpt: While I wasn’t sure of the original cross over game, Street Fighter X Tekken game was a largely enjoyable experience. However, it shouldn’t be surprising with all of the crossover games Capcom has done. When I heard that there would be a Vita version that would enable a large set of features that would integrate with the PS3, I thought it would be a great way to see how well the two could work together.
Pros: Buying the game gives you codes for characters on the PS3 and costumes on both PS3 and Vita, Cross-play between PS3 and Vita works well, Using the Vita as a controller for the PS3 version makes special moves easier due to the touchscreen
Cons: Graphics aren’t quite as good as PS3 version, The Gem system is still as controversial as ever, Not much has been added to the Vita version other than the Burst Kumite and AR modes
Conclusion: This past May Street Fighter X Tekken arrived on our HD consoles, an amusing game with beautiful graphics and good online features. It was a crossover between two different fighting games, and the balance tilted to Street Fighter's side, in terms of both gameplay and visuals. In my opinion, a well executed ideas as the game was easy to learn with its classic controls and colorful graphics in 2.5D.
