This is actually a really interesting discussion. maybe I should change the nature of the thread - to what defines a fighting game ?
But basically people are not calling this a fighting game. on the grounds that it is shit…which I agree now that I have seen IN-GAME footage but the point is that as much as it doesn’t appeal to are personal tastes"This is a fighting game", a shit one but it is a fighter.
when people say games like this are not fighters I get irritated becasue its like taking Mario Kart and Gran Turismo and saying that gran Turismo is not a racing game, just becasue it ain’t got flash and air juggles doesn’t stop it from being considered a fighter, just like how Gran Turismo hasn’t got boost and a revenge meter dosn’t stop it from being a racer.
p.s. the visuals from the trailer may not be ingame but These viduals can be done on this current gen, developers just need to get there head around it. Trust me coming from within Square enix I can say that they will probs be the first to do it.
