Pretty good game. I didn't play much MK9 so the feel of it is still new to me, and I'm still struggling with some fundamentals (wakeup attack timing especially with lag, etc) but I kinda like the spacing and neutral game this game has.
Visually of course it kicks all sorts of behind but then NRS has that sort of thing down.
The netcode is the biggest bugbear, and with major studios finally figuring out how to do netcode (SC5 being a great example) there really is no excuse. Plus, playing on PSN is not exactly fun, the latency is even worse, the PS3 has input delay issues, and since I play a zoner I would estimate that about 1/3 of all opponents pull the cord on me in Ranked. And I'm pretty terrible at this game. Still the good games against the better people are worth it.
