Fun but broken,
This review is from: Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Nintendo 3DS (Video Game)
I am a big Street Fighter fan, and I hate to say that this version of the franchise is broken, but it is. I realize it is a portable version and so there have to be some allowances made, but I am very disappointed that the "kiddie" controls are being so ridiculously abused by so many pathetic wannabes. There is the option to play with "pro" controls, and set your internet matches to play with like-minded enthusiasts, but whenever I tried to do that, I could find very few other players to battle with, so you're basically stuck playing these scrubs. You know who you guys are: Guile players taking advantage of the no-charge glitch, Zangief players who no longer have to perform his difficult double circle controller motions to pull off his 75% damage ultra. Blanka and Honda are probably the worst abused characters. They also have a no-charge type glitch, allowing players to do specials and recover from hits instantly. Those glitches coupled with Capcom's "kiddie" autoblock option makes some characters practically 100% unbeatable. Basically, what we end up with is a beautiful, fun game where you are required to fight 2 or 3 cheaters for every one fair match with someone who is more interested in fun than ringing up 20,000 battle points. Don't get me wrong, I've had alot of fun with this game... but I have also shut off in the middle of a match after playing 7 different E. Honda players who do nothing but instant "suma stomps" over and over. If you don't find that annoying too, then you're probably one of the cheaters. Sorry, but you are. Hopefully, Capcom will patch the holes in this otherwise fantastic game before the ship sinks and SSF4 fans look elsewhere for their fighting game fun. And to you wannabes who think you're SSF4 gods because you push one button over and over... you're not really winning. True victory is winning with skill... and panache!

If you don't know how to punish fullscreen blanka balls or honda headbutts on reaction, you shouldn't be playing this game. And gief ultra 1 isn't 75% dmg (lol). Also, honda butt slam is one of his worst, most unsafe moves. Go to practice mode and learn how to beat it. Honestly the only thing broken about no charge IS guile, but kids online are terrible and don't know how to play guile anyway and throw out random flashkicks.

Agree with Kevin...There is ALWAYS a way to conquer ppl who use the same moves. PRACTICE. Is like when ppl complained about Sentinel in MVC 3...

You act as if any single input in Street Fighter games are hard. It's a single input. Sure, stringing together combos in SSFIV3D takes timing, but Zangief's ultra? :\
If you're fighting Honda "suma stomps" then punish them. Simple. Just because I can fight against that stupid tactic doesn't make me a cheater.
Also, true winning in a fighting game is winning, regardless of the means.

Sorry Rod but that happens in EVERY fighting game! You will come across players that use one move over and over again. Learn how to counter attack and they won't be a problem. Also, as for those kiddie controls.....they don't always work. I have used it in a few matches and you cannot become a better player. I used the pro controls because I've played SF games before. They put the lite controls for the newbies but EVENTUALLY they learn how to pull off the moves MANUALLY. You wrote a poor review because you chose to let other players ruin your experience.
