Street Fighter X Tekken is exactly what happens when the two best of the series crossover! the gameplay of this specific game to become more balanced has been improved and changed so good. as you may know there was a lot of bragging about how combination of Tekken and Street Fighter combat system to an integrated system is not possible, but Capcom once again did manage to show everyone that not only it's possible and yet they have a real talent to create crossover games! and the result is and incredibly intense and engaging gameplay, and anyone who tries it will be addicted to this game! The online portion is the same as the other Capcom fighting games which you go online , request for a fight and wait for the game to find a server and then you can compete against players all over the world to test your skills! Street Fighter X Tekken has been able to turn into a pure and classy Fighting game when no one could imagine it really could do that, and this would not have been possible without the Capcom innovation and creativity! This is a must have for all fighting games fans!
Street Fighter vs Tekken is the first crossover between the famous Street Fighter series with the Tekken series. Here, you'll control a duo of SF or tekken characters and fight your way until the boss. If you choose a SF duo, you'll fight a Tekken boss. Otherwise, you'll fight a SF boss. The game is nice, some tekken characters are easier to use than the original tekken games because you use their combos through a SF system, not the tekken one. For example, Tekken has a lot of moves which needs a lot of back-forth-back-down combos, but SF is more focused in combos which uses front-down-diagonal-down, for example. This a nice change and helps the fighting. However, something about this game don't encorage us to play it a lot. I can't for sure what things is that, see for yourself.
I waited for a long time to play this crossover but I brought nothing but disappointed, I expected system similar to other street fighter but we got something weird based on gems. Roster is impressive on the other hand and can be extended by buying DLC with few more fighters but what turns me down on this windows port is that it to this day require Games for Windows Live which doesn't work any more making running this game a chore.
I'm a big fan of Street Fighter series, but I hate it so much when Capcom starts releasing the same game over and over again. This one, however, is different. The crossover some of us have been waiting for years. Two of the most well known fighting franchises united in the same game. Sounds so good that there was no way it could work. Don't get me wrong, Street Fighter X Tekken is a solid fighting game, but the feeling is, that it looks like a new version of the Street Fighter IV featuring new characters. The identity of the Tekken characters is not there. You can recognize some moves and everything, but something is missing. I ended up playing all the way with the Street Fighter characters and rarely selected those from Tekken. It was a great idea at first sight, but the moment you start playing it you just feel the crossover is not working as you dreamt. I can't imagine how Tekken X Street Fighter will be. Considering Street Fighter is a more accesible game and it didn't work, I don't know how are they going to recreate Street Fighter's characters in a Tekken based game with its deep control fighting mechanics. The game is good, but far from what I expected. If you already have a previous Street Fighter IV version you probably should stick to it, and if not, this is not the ultimate version you should grab.
Street Fighter x Tekken's gameplay style ties more closely to its brother, Street Fighter IV. However it's tag team system makes it unique and gives a sort of difficulty. You have to time everything carefully. Arcade mode is a lot of fun and I enjoyed playing through each duo's storylines. Challenges are helpful when it comes to learning each character and the move commands between tekken and street fighter characters is unique. However, when it comes to multilplayer on the PC, it's a bit disappointing. There aren't many players due to the PC port not being as popular and servers are kind of buggy and disconnects quite a bit. I wouldn't recommend this towards a tekken fan because of the gameplay style but if you're a big street fighter player and don't mind the tekken characters, this might be the game for you.
