The main thing "wrong" with the game is that Capcom locked 12 characters on the disc at launch to sell them as DLC (Which come out at the end of this month). A lot of people, including myself, do not approve of capcom's practices of making customers buy an incomplete game then pay for DLC content (which is already on the disk) to get their "full" game. Some showed their discontent with their wallets (Other's by giving the game 1 star on amazon lol)
That's why the reviews are negative. It's not so much the "game" but the "DLC controversy" surrounding it. All in all it's a fun game. Honest. I still have fun when I play it .
The main problem is, people think they are entitled to everything once they buy the disc. The game is a finished game, the characters withheld are meant to add to the experience, which by no means is a shallow one. There is a robust roster already. Regardless if they are on the disc or are offered via download, it does not mean you are entitled to them just because they are there. The game is more than complete as is. Adding more characters to the roster is awesome and a welcome bonus. The characters intended in the finished product are all there. If you want the option for more ok great. I also heard that when the PS Vita version comes out they are going to offer all the ADDITIONAL characters for download on the Vita as well as the core systems free of charge. But, not having the additional characters from the get go does not diminish the game in any way shape or form. The extras add to the experience and do not entitle everyone to claim it is an incomplete product. There were some sound issues with online play, it was a bit laggy. And a couple other technical issues. But Capcom has addressed the major issues with updates. It is a great game, regardless if there are 50 EXTRA characters or 5
No, if it's on the disk, your entitled to it. A US case ruled in favor of a guy getting sued by a company for hacking content that was locked, and they said that if it's on the disk, it's yours. It's not extra, and it sure isn't complete.
Gmon is right on that. It is best to wait for the DLCs, so we'll survive getting used to the game within three months. I know people complained about it, I just think Capcom shouldn't rush the development.
