Just buy it!
Been playing the new "RMX" rules set of this on and offline, and it's so wierd seeing old characters being used in more effective and dangerous ways with the new moves, properties and balancing they've done.
Not come across anything broken like Ken's dragon punch juggle (R.I.P...should have kept it!) but characters like Fei Long, Zangief, Hawk have had some of their more complex moves made simpler to execute. Allowing more people to able to pull them off and be more succesfull in using these characters.
SPD are now HCB-F and Punch, Fei's axe kicks are just QCF. Even other characters like Guile has had his flash kicks vary range and height based on what kick you use. Was dazzled when I first used it!
Sagat is horrible, you can chain in 2 tiger knees after an initial one if i remember correctly. Can't tag a super on the end of it though, that would have been ultra dirty!
But the worst of all is Honda. They've given his LP headbutt the ability to go through fireballs. ;\/ BUT...they've taken away his positioning after his 360 throw. (Throw where he choke slams, and then sits on your head. Lands right next your mangled body ready for either hundred hand slap chip damage or another tick command throw.) Man that crap was annoying! He's still strong though...too strong!
I love how they've not wrecked tactics of ST, but they've tried to bring other characters up a notch.
Best thing about the whole thing...the netcode is so brilliant, it's obscene! I've played online fighters for years and you can really tell the difference with this game. Thank God Capcom listened to it's fans in first making this RMX version and secondly going to the guys at GGPO and licensing their netcode! They are gonna use it for SFIV too, wooo!
Ranking mode is full of shit though. Beat loads of people with my ghetto Dhalsim when they were Akuma and get dropped on. Much more fun to jump into a random Player match. No score or ranked wins for people to try and protect! Take the beats, TAKE THEM AND LEARN I say.
ADD ME! XBL: S1ngho
I know it's only gonna be Saur, Spaggers or Emir who've bought this here, I wants match ups!
