It's pretty darn impressive for a 4-player brawler. Especially when you compare it to Smash Bros, which only had one "main" attack button and a "special" button.
I never really understood why Smash Bros had a lot of needless repetition in its control scheme. Both R and L could be used to block, and there were two ways to do Smash attacks (C-stick or the A button+direction).
There were even 3 jump buttons. THREE!
I didnt even realise until today when i looked on here at FP move list that her neautral sqaure is chargeable and her down triangle you can charge aswell. >_<.
Smash didn't need many attacks as every A button move comboed into one another so smoothly and quickly.
