On another board I got involved with a thread about 3rd Strike being a great game plagued by a bad cast. I’ll admit that I was a bit put off by the fact that I only knew a few of the cast members when i started playing, but as I’ve gotten more into the game and more acquainted with the characters, they’ve definitely grown on me. I also didn’t play NG or 2I before, so I didn’t know any of the newer characters from those games.
I am still a bit confused as to why they had some 3s characters play slightly like older characters (like Remy’s specials and even some normals reminding one of Guile’s moveset) instead of just bringing back the older characters. But as I said before, the cast has definitely grown on me as I’ve played more and I’m glad they didn’t bring back more older characters.
So what do you guys think? Is the cast great, weak, in-between?
