Maybe it’s my imagination, but I find overhead attacks in this game too slow to use effectively, when I compare them to other SF games like the Alpha series. I remember confusing ppl with Adon’s toward + strong 2-hit punch, or Guy’s for that matter, and I think they make ground games a lot more exciting.
When I try to use overheads in this game, however like Kyo or Rock’s toward + forward overhead, they just seem so slow, they’re not only seem too risky to use on someone who doesn’t even have meter for a good wake-up attempt, but they’re hard to TIME in this game, so they’ll actually hit your opponent as they get up!!!
I suppose maybe certain characters have good overheads, but I never see ppl use them in competition.
I’m also wondering how common they are in this game. I know some characters have them, like Ken, Kyo, Rock, Iori (I think), Sakura, Hibiki (gotta check), etc., but only Sakura’s seems useful because it doesn’t come out that slowly.
Ok: that’s all. I hope they’re still useful! (I made this post longer while I’m waiting for the 4-minute time limit to end before I can post again.) thanks in advance for any ideas!
