SSF2THDR Guide: Opinions wanted

The challenge of putting a game guide together on a wiki is how to present information in a concise enough way to give players all the information that they want or need, without overwhelming them. At StrategyWiki, we have also been dealing with the challenge of presenting information about a series of games such a Street Fighter II in a way that cuts down on the amount of redundant information that gets presented. To deal with that, we've incorporated nearly every version of SF2 into one Table of Contents. Each game has their own move lists, but each character page references the moves from each version of the game, so there's a lot of cross population of information.

With the release of SSF2THDR, it seemed only natural to bump the number of SF2 games covered by one, and treat it like any other version created, rather than start anew with a brand new guide. But the question remains: is this in fact the best way to present this information? A lot of people will have a variety of opinions about this, and no one way can truly be considered the "right" way, but I wonder if we've come as close as we can. I know that some people are going to like it, and some people are going to hate it, but the most important question is can everyone understand it.

I'd like to solicit opinions from the Destructoid community on the choice of layout that we have built the SSF2THDR guide upon. I'd really like to know what your opinions are concerning the ease of ability to understand and navigate around the guide for both hardcore players, and potential novices. You can go directly to the guide and start browsing around, or have a look at the snapshots that I provided. How would you improve upon it? What, if anything, really needs to change? Of course, if you see a mistake, by all means, feel free to fix it. It is a wiki after all. Thanks in advance, and feel free to ask me questions if you have any.
