Very fun distraction from SSF4 but has its flaws

User Rating: 8.5 | Skullgirls PS3
Downloaded the demo before I would drop $15 on this, which I still wont buy it until it is $10. Definitely try the demo and if you like it, buy it.

The fighting is very fluid and responsive, havent tried online, probably is fine if your internet has a good signal. The combos are easy to perform and there are basic moves that follow the hadouken format. The characters are great looking, plenty of cartoon sleeze, which is just fine. The different fighting styles are varied and creative, each with strengths and weaknesses. The tutorial is great and teaches you everything you need to know, EXCEPT for special moves, it throws in a few every now and then, but not the whole roster.

The only character that doesnt fit the scheme of things at all is Peacock, the gun toting granny panties wearing cross dresser. She spams her long range abilities and zones you with no chance of getting close enough to hit her, even worse than Sagat or Akuma zones. The main gripe I have is the lack of a move list for each character. It is impossible to figure out special moves and the tutorial doesnt tell you either.

Overall the game is very fun and a welcome change from street fighter
