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.

If you are intermediate or elite players and love SF II and good at it, then go for it. You can skip my review.

BUT if you are casual players, like me, and you didn't plan on training hard, please read my review and think carefully before buying this game.

Pros:
- Graphics and animations are top-notch.
- If you like SF II, this one goes back to the old formula and add some new tweaks into the battle system.

Cons:
- If you were forced to stick with only a few characters like Ryu or Ken back in your SF II days, that situation is coming back. Ryu, Ken, Sakura are easy enough to master all the moves. Others are useable (means casual players would be able to do some moves, but not all). But for many of them, most of the special moves are impossible for casual players to pull off effectively in the heat of the battle (ie. Vega). And the Ultimate move of some characters (ie. Akuma, Chun Li) are nightmares.

- If you couldn't use the special moves well enough, then casual players might end up with just a few useable character from 25 of them (or half of them, with some practices and a sore left thumb). And you wouldn't stand a chance even against Medium opponents on Arcade mode with the characters you can't use well. Let alone going online to be a sand-bag for those elite players. And $[...] for a game that you could only having fun with less than half of the character rosters, it's the money not very well spent.

- Controls can be too sensitive for casual players to do even some basic moves. For example, a split-second longer can turn command 'UP' into 'UP UP'. When you hold left and then quickly press right, if your left thumb is not precisely hit the RIGHT directional pad, you'd end up with 'DOWN+RIGHT' or 'UP+RIGHT' instead of 'RIGHT'.

This game is a ton of fun. However, should you want to play with the extra characters in the upcoming, revamped Super Street Fighter IV, you might want to think about holding off on your purchase for a while. Super will NOT be a DLC add-on but a new disc-based version, so you'll have to re-buy the game to get Super. Further, Super will probably launch at below the standard $59.99. Food for thought....Fight!!

This is the best Street Fighter that I have played since Street Fighter II Turbo.
The game is designed around an anime theme, which makes sense given the cartoons that were a spinoff of the series. The art is beautiful, but the stories are campy and weird in the classic style of the game.
The controls are awesome. I was usually very frustrated with pulling off special moves from previous installments, but now they are much easier to execute. I am not sure if that is a testament to the genius of the Six Axis controller or if it has something to do with the programming. Whatever it is, it works. I am pleased.
The matchmaking online is perfect. You can set up the arcade game to accept invitations from players outside and your game will be interrupted like the old arcade style: "There is a new challenger..." I like this a lot. It's like someone has come up to the arcade cabinet and dropped their quarters in. It is nice for me because I have nobody else to play with. It's a perfect addition. This function can be turned off though, for those who do not want the Arcade challenge interrupted.
There is also a way to simply go on the network and challenge anybody you like, but I think it connects a little faster when you accept the arcade challenge. No complaints, just an observation.
Anyway, trying to find a copy today (the day after release) will be very difficult. It was sold out at most locations I went to yesterday, but I was able to pick up the last copy just before I gave up.
By this game!!!!!!!!
Sweet.

This is an excellent and well designed and balanced game. I'm a huge fan of Street Fighter II and of the Alpha games. And Street Fighter IV seems to be a perfect melding of what I like about the two. The original, fleshed out and iconic characters of SF2 have melded with simple, but deep gameplay that is filled with variety.

There are plenty of features in the game as well. Versus mode gives you the choice to play versus a local player, the computer or to watch. Training mode is a handy way to brush up on your skill outside of the intense combat of arcade and versus mode. And challenge mode gives you something to shoot for as far as goals & trophies are concerned.

To be honest, the only problems I had with this game are some slightly annoying load times before a match, and the desire for a few more bells & whistles. Things like a more fleshed out story mode and a memorable final boss (not counting Gouken, Ryu & Ken's master) would have been much better. And I love anime, but the animated cut scenes are horrible and it would have looked much better if they did that stuff in engine, like they did with the cutscenes during the rival battle and before you fight the final boss.

Of all the defining video games that I grew up playing, the one that bears the most relevance to me is Street Fighter II. It's what introduced me to fighting games, as well as many others, and still defines what 2-D fighting is today. All these years later, Capcom unleashes Street Fighter IV, which combines all the old school elements you know and love with a glossy, next-gen look and feel; and the end result is one of the absolute best fighting games on the market right now. Very accessible yet deep and complex, Street Fighter IV brings back all twelve warriors from Street Fighter II, and throws in six new ones as well, including a powerful end boss. The first thing you'll notice when powering up the game is that there is some seriously stylish animation and absolutely gorgeous, flowing graphics. In fact, for a 2-D game, the overall presentation is a pure work of art in itself that looks and plays better than most current 3-D fighters. The single-player mode is fun, but the real meat and potatoes of Street Fighter IV lie in the online multiplayer modes, even if it is occasionally laggy. There's also unlockable fan favorite fighters like Akuma, Sakura, Cammy, and even Dan; all of which combines to offer a ton of replay value. All in all, Street Fighter IV is a pure blast that you will enjoy for a good, long time; and is right now the best current fighting game on the market, and it wholeheartedly deserves your attention whether you're a longtime fan of the long running series or a newcomer.
