As for customization in SCV (or IV), it's a hell of a lot more customization than I've seen in other fighting games. You can call out some throwbacks like God Hand and Fighter Maker, but those are a little dated (God Hand is timeless, but it's also more of an RPG/fighter hybrid). There aren't many games that allow you to custom create a fighting style; at all. Coupled with the fact that there are loads of weapons for each character, many of which can be recolored piece by piece, it's the most customization I've ever seen in a fighting game, bar none.
But to each his own; if it's "pretty lame" to some I'm not sure what game they could call better in that field, but oh well.
Understandable. I just thought it was a step back starting with sc4. Sc3 had quite a few original styles for CaS. so you could mae a character that looked cool & played differently from the main roster. I also miss weapons having unique stats & properties from sc2. Like I said I personally think the character customization in scv is lame. I'm sure lots of people can have fun making dr doom and power ranger skins. I like seeing them. Its just a step back as a whole to me.
On topic sfxt should be tried by all. Even with its faults its worth a look. At $20 its a good chance to do so.
