Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

Sadly, ripping off the Guilty Gear/Blazblue control scheme resulted in a highly oversimplified, not-deep-enough fighting game. While it can easily be picked up by a new player, it doesn't have staying power.

Graphics:

One are where Capcom did indeed go out - the graphics are absolutely stunning.

Sound and Music:

Music? Wonderful. Voice acting? Not quite so much. Some voices are good, some are downright bad, and some just don't sound right for fans of the past series.

Difficulty:

As with any fighting game, the difficulty slider means something. The endboss, Galactus, isn't so much "difficult" as he is "cheesy beyond all reason."

Controls and Interface:

The main problem with this game - the altered control scheme just doesn't hold up for Capcom fighting purists or those looking for more depth in their game.

Overall:

Hold off until Capcom finishes patching it and gets most of the DLC out, and you'll probably be much happier.
