Is their another word for 'lovin it' that could be used to fill this entire web-space? Being such the sucker I appear to be for fighting games my whole life I couldn't very well pass this one by, especially as for the fact it may of not even come close to my end of the ocean highway. I eagerly awaited my copy from Amazon with great patience; I took a bite out of my ankle for nourishment, and wallah there it was, smothered in that lovely smashing cardboard packaging, brilliant.
Now from the trailers I had view upon it's arrival, I wasn't put off by the par graphics, it had been something I had expected due to it's 'Wii only' release tag so it came as no surprise to me. I tend not to worry about realism in games these days, I just want to be entertained and for them to contain replay value, thankfully this game does both. I've always taken a shine to Japanese cultural media, it seems to speak volumes and never loses it's appeal, I don't even seem to be bothered by my lack of 'Tatsunoko' knowledge, both manga and anime are unique styles which I have been a fan of for years.
All in all, my first experiences at the game were VERY good, I played it for three hours straight, and thanks to the 'three button' fight system, looking like a pro doesn't seem to be that far off for this old chap. The action was a slight welcomed change to my long hours on SFIV, and was easy to get in and kick some arse. Note to self:- more gaming hours needed for full enjoyment..
