With fighting games I could really care less about the fancy graphics as you spin in a circle. Does left mean left or spin around???
The graphics aren't the point of spinning in a circle, the realism of the fighting is. Duck, dodge, weave, dash, etc.
Though since there are already so many of the 3d kind, and i do love the 2d sidescrollers, i would love if sf4 kept true to its roots.
