G4: "Street Fighter X Tekken is basically action chess, with a wealth of combat techniques and branching attacks. You're constantly juggling a range of variables beyond basic punching and kicking, with charging super moves that can be canceled mid-stream as a fakeout or, if your charge gauge is filled enough, executed early for a surprise. It's daunting to a newcomer, the sort of game you could never simply pick up and play adequately against a pro, but the range of strategic options is what makes both series' so enduringly popular.
All Tekken fighters can be used with either the standard four-button punch/kick control scheme or an expanded roster of three apiece, mirroring Street Fighter's controls. The new characters behave as you expect them to from their appearances in past games."
