this game amazed me. i just don't want to stop playing it. the graphics, the gameplay, the characters, it all just draws you in and keeps you playing for hours. definitely the greatest fighting game made yet. you just don't see fighting games like this as much as you used to. this could certainly be what is holding the genre alive. online play would definitely be great, but the aspects of this game make up for any possible flaws...yeah right, what flaws? this game is a must own and if you don't have it you should go out and buy it right now.
