[Update: July 14th, 2013- I know I promised that I'd edit my review to match the changes made when they happened, and didn't do it. I'm sorry for that, but this game is getting updates out the wahzoo. And right now I just found out that this version of SF4 is getting replaced in early 2014 with Ultra Street Fighter IV. It was announced at EVO, earning a lot of groans from practical people. So...you can get this version now and get in some good practice...then go and buy another version in a couple of months, just like most of us did. :p]
Here we are again- version number 3 of Street Fighter 4. Granted, we all saw this coming, and by this point, the only people interested in the game are either going to be the hardcore players or people new to the game. If you follow the likes of Mike Ross, Justin Wong, Mago and Momochi, you probably already have this game and have been reading about the chances made from Super months ago. For those not in the loop, Super Street Fighter 4 brings a couple of new features to the original SSF4 game:
-Yun, Yang, Oni and Evil Ryu are playable characters (and yet there are 2 more open slots on the character select screen!Read more ›
Simply put, if you are a beginner to the Street Fighter series as I am, and you don't have the time to practice the moves, this game is not for you and I would pass in this game. If you have issues with your fingers, such as joint pains and inflammation, and certain it is you will have pain in your fingers when playing this game, THIS GAME IS NOT FOR YOU.
This game has 4 phases to master.
Phase 1: You need to master the moves. Every character has roughly 13 moves - normal moves, special moves, supers, and ultras. These are fairly easy to master, but some characters such as Balrog move list are hard to pull off. The good thing is most characters moves are grouped together. For example, if you mastered Ryu's move set, then you can do Ken, Guy, Fei Long, Dan, Sakura, Gouken, and Sagat. If you can master Balrog, then you can pull off Vegas' and Bisons' moves also.
Phase 2: You need to instinctively pull off Supers and Ultras in the heat of battle. So far I suck big time. The supers and ultras are hard to pull off especially when you are an inch away from the defeat and you are in the heat of battle. You definitely need an arcade stick (fightstick) for better input. Albeit, I've seen people play pretty well on the normal PS3 controller. Just shows how much I suck.
Phase 3: The combos. The arcade edition has a trial mode - each characters have 24 trials in total, where you practice each characters special moves, super, and ultras, with 10-14 trials out of 24 designed for combo execution. And my friend they are not easy. And did I mention I suck. Check out the username vesper arcade from youtube. This loser mastered all trials for all characters.Read more ›
That said, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition is really the arcade version of Super Street Fighter IV (from which I can tell from YT videos was a great update to the original game) with 4 new playable fighters- Evil Ryu, Oni (another version of Akuma) & the Lee Brothers from SF III. I will say this: if like this reviewer you haven't play ANY of the SF IV releases, you'll in for a surprise. This is a game with lots to learn, from doing the throw moves, to learning the new techniques the SF IV games have. Once you do, you'll find this to be a fun game, esp. if you play with a friend-local or online. The only issue I have? I'm a bit disappointed with the lack of a print manual (you have to download it online). As a newcomer to the SF IV games, I waited to learn about the functions of the game without having to go online to search for it.
That said, with the recent drop in the price of Ultra Street Fighter IV (which I didn't buy mainly because of I found the new fighters to be uninteresting), I'll leave it up to you if you want to buy this or the recent version of Street Fighter IV.
