Street Fighter IV brings the legendary fighting series back to its roots by taking the beloved fighting moves and techniques of the original Street Fighter II, and infusing them with Capcom's latest advancements in next generation technology. The result is a truly extraordinary experience destined to reintroduce players, both familiar with the Street Fighter series and those coming to the game for the first time, to the time-honored art of virtual martial arts.

What Was Old is New Again
Knowing a good thing when they see it, Capcom has gone to great lengths to ensure that everything that made the legendary Street Fighter II a hit in the arcades, living rooms and dormitories across the globe all those years ago has been brought back in Street Fighter IV, and this naturally starts with the characters. Fans of the franchise, as well as the fighting genre in general, will be happy to know that whether you prefer to stick with the superior abilities of top tier characters or explore the ins and outs of mid to lower level combatants, when it comes time to pick your fighter there is a wide array of choices. Also, not only will players be able to play as and against their favorite classic characters, such as Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile, Zangief, Blanka, Sagat, etc., they will also be able to take on new characters. Just a few of these include:

Abel from 'Street Fighter IV' Abel
This young French amnesiac comes from a mixed martial arts and mercenary background and is dedicated to chasing down the remnants of Shadaloo.
Crimson Viper from 'Street Fighter IV' Crimson Viper
This tough and beautiful agent assumes a businesslike demeanor, ignoring all emotion and obligation to her fellow man. She wears a high-tech suit filled with deadly gadgetry..
El Fuerte from 'Street Fighter IV' El Fuerte
This fighter divides his time between perfecting his Lucha Libre skills and his cooking abilities, yet surprisingly his indomitable spirit is a match for even the legendary Red Cyclone.
Rufus from 'Street Fighter IV' Rufus
This portly fighter has declared himself America's greatest fighter and uses his own brand of Kung Fu in his decidedly one-sided rivalry with Ken for top dog in the States.

In addition, characters and environments are rendered in stylized 3D, while the game is played in the classic Street Fighter 2D perspective with additional 3D camera flourishes. Six-button controls for the game return, with a host of new special moves and features integrated into the gameplay system. Street Fighter IV brings a brand new fighting game to fans the world over.

Key Game Features:

  • 3D environments and characters.
  • Traditional "2D" Street Fighter six-button gameplay.
  • Classic Street Fighter characters re-imagined for a new generation of gamers, including the original cast of Street Fighter II.
  • New brawlers: female super-spy Crimson Viper, lucha libre wrestler El Fuerte, mixed martial artist Abel and more.
  • New special moves that go beyond any Street Fighter fan's wildest imagination, including Focus Attacks, Super Combos, and the revenge-fueled Ultra Combo system.
  • Amazing locations never seen before in a Street Fighter game.
  • New gameplay elements provide challenges for both newcomers as well as the most seasoned Street Fighter pro.
New Combat Features: Focus Attacks and Ultra Combos
Although Street Fighter IV is designed to draw heavily from past game features in its franchise history, it does offer some stunning new gameplay options. The first of these are Focus Attacks. These moves allow players to absorb the energy from an attack and quickly counter with their own. Used properly, Focus Attacks allow for tremendous flexibility during combat and are the end result of efforts by the game's development team to evolve combat away from the rigid memorization of set combination patterns, giving players the freedom to be creative against opponents. The other new combat feature are new powered up moves called Ultra Combos. Like standard combos their purpose is to unleash maximum damage on an opponent, but unlike the combos of old, when performed correctly these long strings of punches, kicks and moves result in changes to the in-game camera angle and quick cinematics which illustrate the strength of your skills like never before. Taken together, these two new features herald Street Fighter IV as the new king of the fighter genre and a force to be reckoned with for years to come.

I don't think there's anything I can say that hasn't been said about the quality of the fighting in this game. Top notch. No doubt about it. What I like the best is the online play. It's so smooth and seamless, it really takes you back to the good old arcade days.

I'm not as wowed at the graphics as other people are. When you see the characters up close you can see some blurry textures. And the backgrounds are really nothing special. And if I'm going to nit pick, the backgrounds are a big disappointment. Nobody is assigned a stage. They're all random and none of them are memorable like the ones in Street Fighter 2.

The anime cut scenes before and after you beat the game are just horrible. Storyline? Is there one? This is supposed to take place between Street Fighter 2 and Street Fighter 3 and yet it does NOTHING to do fill in the gaps between the two. All it does is raise MORE questions by bringing dead characters back and adding new ones. Where'd all these characters go in SF3?

As far as the "Collectors Edition" goes, it's not really worth the extra money. You get an anime movie which is of the same quality as the cut scenes in the game. It's horrible. I love anime and have seen a lot of it. But this is one of the worst animes I have ever seen in my life. It's worse than the new live action Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li movie.

And then you get a comic book strategy guide that you'll look at once and never again. And a tiny Ryu figure which is kinda cool to look at. And the soundtrack.

I spent the extra money to get the movie, but the movie is horrible. So if that's your reasoning to buy this collectors edition, save your money and just buy the game.

First off I love the actual game. I've grown up with the fighting genre, played fighting games since I was a young kid and could barely reach the joysticks and buttons. The Streetfighter franchise has come a long, long way but sadly it is my opinion that the collector's edition (it's contents) is a let-down to Street Fighter fans, and hardly justifies the extra price.

The items that came with the collector's edition include a Ryu figurine, a cd soundtrack, blu-ray movie disc "The Ties That Bind" collector's hint book, network vouchers for free alternate costumes (you'll pay a small fee if you don't have the voucher) and of course the actual game.

At first glanced this seemed like a great deal, until you actually have the product in your hands. Upon opening the box you'll notice that the touted figurine of Ryu and I'am assuming the same for C. Viper for the X Box editions are incredibly small. My Ryu figurine has a certain degree of detail to it; Ryu poses in a classic form as he is preparing to form a hadoken fireball. The thing is it only stands at about 3 inches tall. I wasn't expecting something huge, but when you compare the size of the figurine to the size of the box, you could easily stand 3 Ryu figurines on top of one another with room to spare. That's how small the figurine is.

Trying to be optimistic of the C.E., I popped in the blu ray movie and all I can say is, the animation showcases some of the classic characters: Guile, Chun Li, Cammy, Ken, Sakura and of course Ryu with appearances of Balrog, Vega and the new game boss Seth. Without going into too much details C. Viper is shown as an antagonist in the short film. Well the film wasn't anything spectacular. Storyline was much too predictible.

[...]First of all is the game itself: 20 years have passed since Street Fighter 2 hits us with an onslaught of new posibilities on gaming; the game itself was a revolution to everything we knew about fighting games and every single fighting game that has come out since his inception is a mere copycat (altought i must admit there are some good copycats out there, like Mortal Kombat and most of the SNK games); Street Fighter 4 takes us back to these old days of awe and wonder, but now in high definition with a rich roster of characters, improved gameplay, a consistent arcade mode and different modes of game that will give you the bang for your buck you are looking for; if you are a trophy collector, then you'll spend hours getting every single trophy of the game (because it has a lot of them); if you are a casual player, it will keep you entertained for hours with his senseless fun and violence, if you are a hardcore gamer, some of the new improvements will make you spend a lot of time trying to master every single character, this game has it all, in spades!!!

It looks beautiful, it plays beautiful. Period.

The movie: Although SF4: the ties that bind it's not the best anime of the series (it lacks in the action department) it fits really nice in the continuity of the game (SF4 takes place between SF2 and SF3); we get to see the relationships between these characters and how much they care for each other, plus, most of the intros and endings for each character are done in the same style as this movie.

The soundtrack: a masterful piece of art composed by Hideyuki Fukasawa, the only gripe i have is that it doesn't include the song "The next door - invincible" wich plays in the intro of the game.
