In this hands-on preview of the upcoming Playstation 3, Xbox 360 fighting game from Yukes and THQ the writer notes that the game has been improved in the gameplay department.
"The real work appears to have been in the gameplay. The deeply detailed training and stat system from the previous iteration has been slimmed down considerably. Training is now undertaken via mini-games that genuinely get you to work on your techniques, particularly your combinations, your ground game, and your footwork. The training camps have been refined in purpose and also slimmed down in number."
