played vf4, here to answer questions i was up in london today and experienced "the next step", so , you want my oppinion?? well here ya go.. i dont like the dodging system, sega have made it seem unecesary to dodge now and have taken a step back rather than forward, it is up, up or down down (vf2 is more like vf4 than 3) i perfered the E button, because YOU decide more on HOW you move and step, there is less precision in vf4 and you cant be fast enough to use it right.... i cant see the "korean step technique" being done on vf4 other than that, i love the new multiple stances for different characters, kage / lei / jacky / sarah / pai /, it adds more depth to the game and realy makes it a good sequal one other thing i dont like is way too many floor chains and boosted air chains, this isnt DOA!! vf's chains were way more "underground" in vf3, they took precision and timing, now they have made them more common and versitile which makes the game seem more "shallow" and easy for begginers. ya wanna know how i done?? well i got hurt with akira, he seems more stiff and moves arent that easily pulled off any more, not even his f,f,f,p.. i had troubles with the DLC, i pulled it off a couple of times, but no stun palm of doom, i just couldnt pull it off!! i did superb with wolf though, it felf like vf3 again, i even had the comfidence to show off and cancel my combos into throws! well, im in the tournament now anyway, how many of you signed up?? i look forward to the challenge (i'll probably be using wolf) any way, im here to answer any questions you are unsure about the best that i can.. so bring it on!!
