Excerpt: I laughed when a review copy of Street Fighter X Tekken 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 SFxT - mostly that it actually is a really good fighting game, even if it's not the most amazing game around for watching pro competition.
Excerpt: Both Capcom and Namco have created some fantastic crossovers in the past, which is one of the reasons why Street Fighter X (or Cross) Tekken was so intriguing. However, the most fascinating thing about these particular series being combined into a single game is how differently each plays.
Street Fighter x Tekken 12 Character DLC Pack – Review (Xbox 360 / XBLA)
27 August 2012
Conclusion: Dropping the overall down a point from the original because of certain issues about the way the DLC was presented. At a price tag of $20, and considering a lot of people bought the game full price day one, that brings the game to a price tag of $80, not including other DLC that’s offered.
Conclusion: To me twelve new fighters serve as a finite means to extend a game I hadn't played in a few months while hardcore fans whom salivate at the smell of fresh blood will obviously get quite a bit more out of them. In this regard these characters are both sufficient, necessary, and, hopefully, enough to power Street Fighter X Tekken until Capcom's next fighting installment comes to light.
Summary: Fighting fans have been waiting a long time for such a crossover with two such popular fighting franchises. Luckily enough, Capcom does not disappoint. Both sides are well represented in the game. The game does suffer from some online lag and match-up problems, but overall Capcom sets the bar pretty high here. Now I can’t wait to see what Namco does with
Tekken X Street Fighter.
Pros: The game provides an excellent tutorial, hosted by Dan Habiki., 38 characters to play, not inclusive of any additional DLC.
Review: Street Fighter X Tekken Additional Characters Pack (Microsoft Xbox 360)
20 May 2012
Summary: : So, let me level with you here: if Capcom hadn’t provided us with a code to download these characters? I wouldn’t have them. It’s as simple as that. Yes, the Additional Character Pack offers up twelve new characters, and yes, these characters play perfectly fine. Some of the characters, like Elena and Christie, are personal favorites, and others, like Bryan and Dudley, are surprisingly useful overall.
Review: Street Fighter X Tekken Special Edition (Microsoft Xbox 360)
20 May 2012
Summary: : Street Fighter X Tekken has all of the tools to be the best fighting game this year, and almost accomplishes this by sheer force of will, but some balancing issues, technical flaws and less than optimal decisions hurt the game noticeably, which is a massive shame. The plotline is actually fairly engaging as fighting game plots go, and the game features a large volume of play modes to jump into that are all useful and fun.
Two brawler series fuse into one game; violent but no blood.

Summary: Parents need to know Street Fighter X Tekken is a fighting game. There is plenty of violence as pairs of fighters take on one another, and use many violent moves to win matches with "knock outs." There is no blood, but players will kick, punch, throw, and use some weapon and magic attacks. Parents should also be aware that the game's female characters are highly sexualized. Plus, some characters use profanity and allude to alcohol use.
