I haven't played this series for a while so for me it's a great way to catch up. It's nice to see some of the old moves still haven't changed. For me, I like the fact that you can pick-up games online. There is also a training mode to help you work on all the moves and combos. After playing for a few hours, I think this game is as addictive as it was years ago (maybe more so).
Installing on Win 7 - 64 bit did take quite a bit of work. I can't fault Capcom for this as I think it's more of a Windows issue. On install, I received several corrupt file errors. I'm really not sure how it installed - it's a new PC so perhaps my Windows version needed to get brought up-to-date. (just something to look out for).
If you're a fan of the series or just need to relive some of your favorite characters, I highly recommend it.
FIrst, a little history. Street Fighter 4(the original) came out with Windows Live. You had to have a constant internet connection in order to play that game to it's fullest. You could still play the original Street Fighter 4 offline, but you couldn't play your saved games and it wouldn't save your progress, you were also limited to only half of the fighters, because you had to unlock them all in the original. If you didn't always log into Windows Live everytime you started the game, you weren't able to access the other fighters you unlocked. What the original Street Fighter 4 had, was a DRM where you needed a constant internet connection to play.
Did they change the DRM in Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition? Yes, and no.
DRM in the Arcade Edition is still Windows Live. You need a Windows Live account and you will always have to be logged into Windows Live, thus you always have to be connected to the internet, to play Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition to it's fullest. They have now all the characters unlocked, so if you want to play offline, you can do so with all the characters, however you must download a patch through Windows Live first before all the characters become unlocked. Saving still only occurs if you are logged into Windows Live and only if you are connected to the internet. If you don't have an always online connection, you won't be able to play your saved games, nor will you be able to save your progress, just like how it was in the original Street Fighter 4.
Great game, but horrible, horrible DRM system is in place.
