So, questions for those of you who own the game already. I'll own it tonight hopefully.
1) How does it feel to play play with the directional arrows on the left joycon? 2) Can you play in dual joycon mode, as if it were a Wiimote with a nunchuck? 3) How does it feel to play with an individual joycon? 4) Is way of the Hado really that bad? 5) How are Evil Ryu and Violent Ken? 6) How do the graphics look on the Switch Screen? 7) How is the online?
Okay, so the Joycons feel pretty good with this game! The face buttons do a solid job as d-pad replacements. Online mode works well too, which is a relief. Finding a match and playing is quick and easy, and the connection is pretty solid. I played maybe 20 or so matches and I'd say 95% were lag-free and perfectly playable. The times when the connection wasn't perfect just made the game stutter here and there but was otherwise playable. Nowhere near Brawl-levels of slideshow, haha.
Lazy effort by Capcom but that doesn't mean the game isn't awesome as fuck and still an absolute joy to play. Played online with my bro and they were great matches back and forth. Tomorrow I'll play my oldest brother who's the best at SF I assume. I improved really quick though. I'm not too shabby. I know how to Street Fighter. Smash has helped me too. Haven't dug deep into a Street Fighter in a loooong time. Not since 3 on Dreamcast.
God the music is so amazing in this game.
Really wish we could get the original graphics/game(s)/music in full as well. Capcom really are being greedy bastards.
You know what really tells me this is a lazy effort though? Continue screen = no animation. Yeah. It's been done before already, and they can't copy paste it in the damn game?
Oh and there's no way to change or remove the border?
Choosing more art and music styles would be nice too. Considering this is supposedly a 30th anniversary game and it's based on SF2 (well, supwr at least) it'd be nice to get the OG music as an option as well.
And some music tracks aren't directly from Super right? Some have been changed?
I bought it. The game looks absolutely gorgeous on the Switch screen. I want to say it even runs smoother than the PS3 version. It plays great on the Joycon and the Switch Pro controller. And it's even playable on the joycon. Two things bother me. 1) The Price. I feel it should have been $20. And 2) The music is not the same as in the PS3/360 version. That soundtrack was absolutely killer. This new soundtrack doesn't even compare. I wish Capcom would give us an update with the old Overclocked Remix soundtrack.
Grabbed this from the library. I feel like most of the discussion around the game has been centered around its price/value and Capcom's laziness, but the game itself is pretty damned fun! It plays very well, the color editor is cool, and the gallery and music player are neat, as well. I like the big window for move buffering. Shoryukens for days...
