I recently bought Street Fighter X Tekken for Xbox 360 after watching some tournament footage. The game seems much more playable and watchable than before, though I feel that the game still has some issues that need to be addressed. I want to say my opinions and questions as respectfully as possible, so I appreciate any feedback from you guys.
#1: How balanced is this game now?
I actually looked through the changes list, and so far I definitely agree with system changes. It’s the character balance that I want to look into. How balanced is this game?
I looked through most of the change list for Street Fighter characters and the Tekken characters, and I feel that majority (not all) of the SF cast got nerfed. Are they still playable/viable? I know Chun Li, Guy, and Dudley are seemingly strong, but I’m not too sure of the rest. I feel that majority of the Tekken characters got buffed, and I’m seeing a ton of Nina’s and Hwoarang’s in tournaments. Do you guys feel that this game is well balanced now?
I’m willing to learn Tekken characters for the most part, but I still want to use Street Fighter characters as well. I’ve been messing around with a team of Jin X Ryu, and I’m not sure how viable this team would be.
#2: How big of a learning curve is there in this game?
I’ve playing Street Fighter 4 since Vanilla, and it took me a good few months for me to really learn the ins and outs of the game. The same thing can be said for Super Turbo. How much of a learning curve is there for this game in comparison to AE?
#3: I’m learning Jin X Ryu team! Is this team viable? What other characters would be better?
I’ve been really interested in using Jin after watching Infiltration use him really well in tournaments, so I picked him up first. I’ve always picked Ryu in every Street Fighter game first before possibly switching to another character as my main (I switched to Akuma in SF4 and stuck with Ryu in ST). I’m aware Ryu actually got nerfed, do you think Ryu can still be viable or do you think I should consider switching to another character?
Appreciated if anyone can answer them I’m definitely willing to learn and pick this game up.
