To me, sfv is the most boring fighting game i have ever played.

- Very little room for creativity
- boring bnb's
- super long startup on anything that does good damage
- boring competitive scene
- It's probably the slowest sf in existence
- and other reasons that make it not fun.

Y'see, I love sf (vanilla SSF4 is probably still my favorite fighting game of all time) and I wanted to love this game but I just can't. It's too slow and unrewarding to play.

i like the game i just think it was ruined by rushed development.
if this game had half as much crazy stuff as SFXT it would've been done better.

i mean, sfxt had challenge missions, 2 different types of character customization, arcade mode, a sh!t-ton of characters from the beginning, and a ps-vita port that had Augmented Reality features, altered stages, and crossplay with the ps3 version...

where was all that in SF5? Capcom is either getting lazier every year or they are having some problems they aren't talking about.

Modes aren't my issue, the core fundamental gameplay is about as exciting as a bowl of shreddies with no milk.

Anyway, happy i'm not totally alone on this opinion. I didn't care much for USF4 but somehow SF5 is even worse than that.



air hits the nail on the head here.

Like Sulfur said I probably had the most fun with SSF4 but I think this game is pretty decent to the point I'm enjoying it. It has it's flaws but I think it's slighty faster and a bit more honest than 4.

Long as Mika is in a match this game is fast lol.

I'm done with SFV for all the reasons above and don't plan to spend a dime on it.
I don't even watch tournaments anymore related to this game.
SSF4 was my favorite and the past 7 years around SF4 were the greatest and hypest I've ever had.
Unfortunately that's not the case anymore.
I've switched to GGXRD-R, BBCE (waiting for BB CENTRAL FICTION), KOF14 and have gone back to MKXL were I feel it suits my needs as a fighting player and a spectator.
