A winner for keeping the old street fighter spirit!,
This review is from: Street Fighter IV - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Not a 5, but a 4.5.
This game keeps the spirit of the old and super awsom SF2 and SF2 turbo many of us loved and got hooked on when we were kids. Over 20 charachters, great movement and game speed, and some new stuff that add up to the experience.
If youve never played fighting games, or have done it only eventually, SF4 is gonna be very tough on you. This is no begginers game. This seem to have been made for street fighters fans. Some people complain about it, I actually LOVE IT. If its hard for you, change the difficulty level to very easy.
There are some very minor things to critique though. The background worlds dont excell in graphics, even if theyre 3D. And, when youre playing arcade against the tough guys, I believe the game brakes its own rules putting you in disadvantage. Ive seen my combos ,ultra combos and focus attacks broken by a low punch wich is frustrating. I think SF has to be like a good game of chess, both players have to have the same tools and pieces against each other.
Overall, FOR ME, this is definately, the best fighting game of the decade. I recommend it 100%.
