Yea, seriously. I played SF4 vanilla and SSF4 for a long time, character was Honda. Then i paused for a few month and now, with release of AE, i´m back for more action. And while i fight my way through the rankings, i wonder almost every fight (doesn’t matter if i win or lose) why i play this character.
- is slow
- doesn’t do enough damage anymore
- doesn’t have good high priority moves anymore (where is my AA-jab-HB?)
- is fucked by fireballs
- is fucked by rushdown-gameplay
- is fucked by crossups
So… please enlighten me. What exactly is the strength of Honda-San again? Where does he shine? Because after every damn fight i can’t stop thinking: The opponent character has so much more and so much better options. I really like his design, but damn - he seems so weak now.
