Street Fighter X Tekken Review | 9.2/10
Review by IGN (9.0/10 – Amazing)
If there’s one thing the fighting game gurus at Capcom love to do, it’s team up with other developers. Crossovers have been Capcom’s bread and butter for years now, be it through the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise or even less traditional fare like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. However, it’s rare that one of their crossovers gets quite as specific as Street Fighter X Tekken, which teams up their roster of classic Street Fighter characters with those from Namco Bandai’s flagship fighting franchise, Tekken, and manages to add in some truly unique features along the way.
Review by Game Spot (8.5/10 – Great)
Street Fighter X Tekken is a 2D fighter with two-on-two combat. Each side is in control of two fighters and can swap between them on the fly. Players can even team up cooperatively and fight on the same team, just like in last year’s Mortal Kombat. This means up to four players can take part in a fight. However, when one fighter on a team is knocked out, that team loses the round–regardless of how much health the remaining fighter has. Therefore, you must treat your two fighters as one unit. There are numerous ways to switch between your fighters, and mastering good synergy between them is the key to building devastating combos and winning matches.
