Alright I guess this could be the official Capcom Fighting Evolution/Jam thread. I just want to know people’s thoughts and reviews on it. I just got it today and haven’t played it too much.
At first the game seems limited, but it is just very different than other games. Some links that usually work in other games don’t work here, they just have a different combo/fighting engine. After playing for a while you will really get the feel for the game and get into much more than at first. Me and Gene started off just playing with random characters, we had the idea in our heads of who was supposedly good, but after playing for a while characters that we thought sucked were pretty good, and characters that we thought would be really good are just okay. We both agree that it seems pretty well balanced right now. (Jedah is good, but definately has his problems) I’m sure lots of people will play the game with characters in mind, and then switch when they play, just happens that way.
3S characters at first didn’t seem too great to me, but after playing with them a bit I think parry will be very good in this game (definately easier in some cases, you can parry the first hit of a super fireball and just jump out of it, it seems like parry gives some invulerbility and pauses your opponent for a bit) and the 3S characters are all good. (Urien I am not sure of, I bet he is but I just don’t know how to play him)
Dark Stalker characters are all definately good, just because of their chain combos, other than that nothing else I can think of that makes them stand out.
Warzard/Red Earth characters are very different, and pretty cool, they have their own unique things that sound broken but in game they are just okay. (I think they are the characters with the slowest meter, I dont mean the actual building of the meter, but they all have to use levels to level up to use certain supers, hard to explain.)
ST characters are powerful and just plain solid, nothing else I can say.
Alpha characters are iffy, customs do a good amount of damage and have invincible start-up and all that but I dont think they will dominate in this game like in others.
Ingrid I have no idea how I heard that she was good and people were playing her, she really seems to lack in her move department. She has counters (that launch, I thought this was a grab but it’s not), a flip kick move, a fireball that is like Athena’s but goes as far as Dans :xeye: and some other moves that don’t seem to great.
