Got it today and I'm a bit disappointed so far. Few game modes, AI is still horribly cheap, a lot of the guest characters are straight up clones of veteran fighters (Ashlotte has exactly the same moveset as Astaroth) and it looks they even got rid of the unique styles for custom characters from SC3. The skimpification of many of the female characters' outfits (and bust size upgrades) just smacks of Namco trading off the solid gameplay of the first two games for fan service, like Dead or Alive or something.

Pluses include the graphics and online play (obviously) and the ability to design custom costumes for non custom characters. I put some actual clothes on Amy and gave her an afro.

EDIT: Actually, it's almost worth it for the character creator alone.
