So, Picked this up yesterday and I have to say, other than a few annoyances with some character tweaks they did the games fan-freeking-tastic! The controls on the 360 aren't as bad as I was dreading, but then a few months with HD Remix helped that out. The matching service isn't terrible but it coudl use a bit of help from time to time. Having to pick quick match about 10 times before you get one is irritating but you can also just set hte game to allow players to join you while you play arcade mode. The game also let's you prioritise weither or not you want it to look for the most stable connection for those jump in matches, which helps.
Now the gripes, Blanka looks and sounds terrible. Youc an get over the sound by setting him to Lapanese, he sounds slightly better there. His look is like how he looked in SFEX, whihc is bad. His attacks aren't as fast as they used to be, but they did add a few tweaks to him that sort of make up for it. Still it's hard to look at him as it looks more like someone in a blanka costume you'd see at an anime con, blech.
In the end, great job Capcom, now get some more freeking sticks and pads out there for sale!
