Average User Score: 6.2Feb 6, 2012By far the worst entry in the series, story mode is horrible and makes zero sense, quick match is just a grind for titles, we don't have talim, rock, zasalamel, etc but hey!! they have time to introduce a copy of jin and 3 mimics!! Patroklos and Pyrrha are by far the most annoying teens ever in a FG.
The supers are really inconsistent and cheap with 1 frame start ups, Guard break is poorly done, a lot of characters are dumbed down with a lot of moves being removed, Maxi and Nightmare are really boring to play, the new replacements are more of the same.
This game is only for the extreme zealous fans, the only good things are the online play, Ezio, Viola and Zwei, this is an online game only, is just a rushed game.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.0Nov 23, 2011Not too much content unfortunately: balance changes, new characters and some new stages and few modes, absurd mechanics like x-factor ("normalized" in theory) and TAC's are still in the game, some glitches were removed but execution in this game is so easy that every player can make insane damage with no effort no matter how experienced he is, defense is the real deal here if you make a single mistake say goodbye to 70% of your life bar or even an entire character. This game is full of fan service and provides nice times of fun for fans, but keep in mind that this is a casual fighting game, if you don't like unbalanced comeback mechanics like x-factor or the accessible combo system maybe this is not the game for you these mechanics were introduced for casual players, not a bad at all thing but brings a lot of problems to the core gameplay that not everybody will like, unfortunately a lot of people thinks that FG should be dictated by capcom and they will buy it anyways (if you have fun great for you!!) but i would invite you to think before you purchase this.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.2Nov 22, 2011In the era of casual fighting games with ridiculous comeback mechanics this game comes to save the day and show us how real fighting games should be: in the old school format, this game rewards skill and if you want to be the best you must to earn it, this game improves a lot since the last game, the net code is good (not perfect) more characters and more depth in the fighting system, Thanks to SNK to bring us a great experience of how a true fighting game should be.… Expand
