I just got a chance to try this new game out. It blew me away. The graphics are AMAZING. The characters look so lifelike and almost as good as the damn cg ending scenes to be honest. The music is incredible, especially Jin and Azazel’s themes. The gameplay is superb, the new Bound system is the most innvative system I have seen yet in a fighting game, and far outshines anything seen in SF4, BlazBlue, KoF 12/13, and even Virtua Fighter 5. Controls are smooth and combos are easy to do, but hard to master. There’s a large selection of awesome characters to choose from, and this is just a fantastic game.
The game is so good, that I’d be satisfied if 2d fighters died out for good and we just had Tekken games. After playing this I can’t even get enjoyment from 2d fighters anymore. SF4 just seems like a fucking joke, same for KOF and BlazBlue.
