Take the two best fighting games of all time, put them together, and you have one of the best current fighters on the market!

Street Fighter X Tekken (pronounced Street Fighter Cross Tekken) takes most of the characters of each franchise and pits them together in team battles. You can choose either side or mix and match. The fighting style is taken from Street Fighter so if you're used to playing as King or Yoshimitsu, you'll have to adjust and re-learn your favorite Tekken characters. The good news is that if you love the throws from Tekken, they left those in there for you - the ability to press a Punch and Kick at the same time to accomplish your grappling moves.

The action is intense! It brings you back to the high action, high octane, arcade-style of any Street Fighter title. To make the action more extreme, they've also included the Gem system in this game to give you that extra boost when you need it. There's also something called Pandora that opens your fighter into a rage machine in your last breath of life. Both are game changers in this title. Even when you're almost out for the count, you can still come back in and take victory.

Take all these points into account, long with killer graphics and smooth animation - even smooth during online play, and you have a fighter worth adding to your collection. Street Fighter X Tekken is highly recommended.
