Im wtih Cord. I want a girl thats BAD. As for the Movie, Im a huge fan of the game and didnt even know a movie was out or coming. I dont watch video game based movies anyways. They're always horrible. About like comic flix theres been a few decent but they are always overrated and always stray from the familiar material that the real fan base goes by.

As for representing styles accurately, very few characters in the game did, IMO. Jann was good. Brad was a good rep for a style that barely exists. Zack was always a horrible rep, I think. Also the ninjas were too jerky. They were fast but not very fluid. I liked the wrestlers especially bayman. Tina was good to. If she did as much damage as the other wrestlers she would easily be a top contender.

well the story behind Zack was that his MT was supposed to be unorthodox because he learned it by watching kind of thing. Meaning he never truely learned it. The wrestlers were great, Bayman was really fun playing. Overall though I thought the art representation was pretty good except for the ninjas because they were the only ones that teleported and pulled off unrealistic moves while everyone else was more real.

Notice that the JKD guy was the best. Coincidence? I think not...

No way! Bayman with his Sombo/Krav mix and ground moves absolutely spanks allcomers like naughty children in Power Rangers costumes

Man, Jann was way too fast. bayman is good no doubt, but you cant grapple with a Dragon! Bruce..erm I mean jann was really fast and does good damge and has lots of impact hits. If you can work him on the outside and make the opponent come to you( like in JKD) then the opponent doesnt have a chance.

Very true, also you can use the side kick to the knee (the longest weapon), if you time it will you can actually intercept anyone coming and start a combo. Ahhh JKD...

Ah, but much like in the VF games, where Characters like Lau and Pai rely on fast chain strikes coming from range, if those strikes are pre empted (and they often are, as gamers who favour such characters tend to rely on them), they leave your character hopelssly open to counters at the end of the combo. Using Bayman as a counter-fighting character, Jan can 'WATAAAA!' all the way into his range, then get 'snap crackle and popped' harder than a bowl of rice crispies

Thats true. Thats why you make them come to you. Directional committment. You have to come to me to hit me. All I have to do is intercept. If your slow like Bayman, well, its lights out. He is probably my third favorite character. My top two would be jann, and then Hitomi, the karate chic. Her combos are limited though. Jann seems like you can alsmost combo everything. Especially if you start with that side kick to the knee.
