Street Fighter x Tekken's Gem System has been quite a controversy in the fighting game community. There are those who feel it makes the game too easy, that it will, in fact, break the game itself. After playing through SFxT's tutorial and pumping in a couple of hours into versus mode, I think that Capcom has managed to pull it off. The Gems allow for some interesting strategy and have a risk/reward element that will make for one exciting game.
