Got it midnight release and after playing it for a whole week this is what I thought
Pretty Easy for anyone, even non-fighting experts, to pick up and play
The graphics and background scenery (especially on a HD TV)
The ability to save up to three teams for quick character selection
No carbon copies of Characters (to my surprise Akuma plays different from Ryu unlike SS4 and SSF4)
Creative alternative costumes
No spectator mode, not even in the lobbies
A pain in the a$$ to get on a online fight (The only way I find fights is through the fight request in Arcade mode)
Lack of roster, and the fact Capcom plans on leeching more $ from players with DLC fighters, costumes, and pretty much other useless content
Overall a shallow game compared to other fighting games like Blazblue Continuum Shift, Soul Calibur 4, Dead or Alive 4 or even Street Fighter 4 and SSF4.
Its a fun game don't get me wrong, great for parties and get togethers but with a lack of modes and content, this game will be collecting dust in a mouth or so.
