... I like it even more that they are bringing back the whole SF2 cast...

but there is still stuff that I do NOT like.

-Ryu looks too westernized, with blue(!) eyes, and a really bad hairdo.
-Ken just looks fugly.
-Viper doesnt seem very interesting
-I want Fei Long and Cammy dammit!

Other than that, it looks quite promising and fun, but come on people... RYU WITH BLUE EYES!? Wtf... -snif-
