RepetitiveI don't know if it's just me because i'm not a fan of one to three hit combos but this games brings to shame any street fighter or tekken game that i've owned on my PSP. The sad part and all of this is the tutorial mode..if they had includedd an instruction manual inside the game any problem wouldn't be an issue besides the controls, and combo's they should have added a story mode like Teeeken:Dark ressurcetion/tekken 6 did. I don't want to trash talk this because there are some minor things I like about it, but to cut to the chase wait until this drops down to at least $20 to buy, it's not really worth it unless you want to play for a short amount of time and keep repeating the same attacks, getting somewhere to no where in progress.

Pretty good on the VitaI must say that this game is worth it just like the other person below me i can finally play my Vita again! Im really loving it yes i played this game on the PS3 version but for some reason i enjoy it more on the Vita the fighting feeling controls and the graphics are good for your eyes. I like the bonus it comes with 12 additional characters my favorite so far (Jack X,Guy,Cody,Lars,Lei) then you get some custom costumes for your 12 characters. Just like the console online has it to where you can fight PS3 players from your Vita and you can have a tag partner with Vita and PS3 together also whats cool is replay channels again just like the console you can watch replays from matches across the world. Later this year they're gonna have more DLC for this game i cant wait : ) I would recommend this game to anyone fighting fans or getting into fight games.

Excellent ValueI have been waiting for this to come out. I love fighting games. This game has better graphics than Mortal Kombat on the PS VITA. You get to unlock 12 characters on PS 3 version and you get 38 alternate costumes for PS VITA and PS 3 plus I pre-ordered so I got 12 alternate costumes for the DLC characters. This is a $40 value by itself. Fun to play on the go. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes fighting games.
