They stated the "disjointedness of Virtua Fighter 2, Tekken 2 and Soul Edge is completely gone" and the "characters are so smooth" that "every frame looks almost good enough to be a singular SGI-rendered, image, not a polygon construct". They noted "high-res detail" from "every angle, no matter how zoomed in" and transparency, translucency, lighting and shading effects. And they praised the motion capture animation of "absolutely gorgeous" Aoi Umenokoji and considered Dural's "morphing from liquid metal" to look more impressive than the T-1000's similar effects in the film Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
