  • Summary: "Street Fighter" is best known for its well-polished 2D game play, and "Street Fighter IV" is an exemplary addition to the series. And now, based on the "Street Fighter IV" engine, the "TEKKEN" characters will be stepping into the ring to fight. Featuring two on two "Tag Team Fighting", and together with Battle and Training Modes, this title will push the series beyond its limits. Collapse

    Now what is the reason to own Street Fighter X Tekken for PlayStation Vita if you already own it for the home consoles? This version is packed full of extras geared towards owners of the PlayStation 3 version of the game. With this you receive the extra 12 DLC characters and 38 alternate costumes for the core characters of the game.

    Street Fighter x Tekken is one of the best fighting games on handheld consoles.

    This is probably one of the beat'em ups ever launched on a portable console.

    I would recommend getting it if you need one for your Vita collection and have some familiarity with both franchises, or if you want to get the extra DLC characters for both Vita and PS3 versions.

    Feature-wise, the Vita version of SFxT is a much more complete package than the original release. However, the cramped and limited interface of the Vita inhibit your ability to enjoy them all as much as you should. This is still an incredibly solid experience and an excellent fighting game, however I find myself longing for the ability to use my arcade stick, or at least my console controller.

    A solid brawler, but one that does very little with the Tekken licence. If you want another Street Fighter-like scrapper, it's a solid purchase.

    X certainly has its merits but when all is said and done only it feels like a game that is specifically tuned towards series veterans or those who are invested in the online community.

    This is a must for fighting game fans on the go. I know the negativity around SFxT, but it's still a great game and this port adds great new features that make it more fun. I notice there is less lag when compared to console versions(at least on my wifi). Burst Mode is fun for people who enjoyed Ghost Battles on the PSP for the Tekken 5 and 6. The painting and sharing of people's costumes are fun, and if you scored a new copy then you have access to some new alternative costumes to your fighters. Plus this game compliments your ps3 version with free dlc (i have a 360 though). Plus Vita members can cross play agaisnt Ps3 players, and have a separate leaderboard between both versions. Best of all, Vita will also get the SFxT Ver. 2013 Update for Free Also. I highly recommend picking this game up if your a fan of either series (street fighter or tekken). Just take time to learn the base mechanics (gems, cross assualts, tag switching, etc etc). Otherwise its a very good port and awesome game for Vita players. Don't get discouraged when losing your first few matches if your new to this game, just get the rhythm down and know your characters strengths and weaknesses. Expand

    Street fighter x tekken offers a unique fighting game than others and with its extra dlc it betters the console version but this game is not perfect as street fighter graphics don't fit tekken characters. The games online is near perfection. Overall the game is a good fighting game but does not join the ranks with fighting games such Tekken Tag tonourement 1 Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. For me street fighter x tekken is everything you want for a vita game, console gaming on a handheld. Takes a while to get used to the controls but when you do there almost the same game some may see this as a nagative but if you like street fighter you be happy this Expand

    Street Fighter X Tekken is one of those titles that proves there can be no boundaries between consoles and handheld consoles. Content included in SFxT vita is similar to Console version and plus we get Free costumes and 12DLC characters and even a AR Gallery mod. The gameplay is same, though some controls are compromised to make it work on vita but it still has the same excitement as the console version. The touch controls are not a good solution as they make the game too easy. Graphics are pretty good specially that character models are nice but the stage textures are not really shiny enough. Contrast need to be adjusted as some of the character skins appear to be so red. Finally also the game suffers from the same issues it had 7 month ago. Characters are not balanced well, some are way too much stronger than others where the counter attacks are generally useless. An upcoming patch for 2013 has promised to bring fixes. Expand
