We have covered the game previously and it was a bit ropey in places with hard crashes and sluggish play. Here it is much improved from the visuals to the performance and is now the definitive version. Remember that this is a fighting game that uses just four buttons is always going to be a benefit, It’s less management and levels the playing field for newcomers. I liked how quickly I could pull off moves and chain combos for the game to run smoothly and has moments where it looks fantastic. It just falls down with slow-paced story additions and some clunky-looking animations. I love the roster of characters as it is something different. Fighting fans new and old can get something out of the game, It’s just a better game for local and online play than a single play. In short, the story is boring and slow but the action is fast and immediate.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
