Out of curiosity, which fighting games have some of the sloppiest mechanics out there? Im not just talking shitting fighting games either.
I ask because I tried playing Soul Calibur 4 again since the release of Tekken 6. God dayum does this game suck. I have never played something so makeshift and thrown together in my life.
The game makes a paradox of its system by having so many loopholes that combat becomes inconsistent. In theory, a horizontal mid, cant be ducked, so why can it then be stepped at close range? If throws are high, why can you be thrown out of a while crouching attack?
Not to mention some characters have moves with literally 6 or 7 properties (safe, +frames, tracks, guard crushes, soul gauge damage, pushback, causes mixup, techs high/low, auto gi …etc)
There are plenty of other things that make this game extremely crappy and sloppy I just dont care to list them all. Im wondering do any other fighters have issues like this, and how does it get to this point?
