      One of the most enjoyable fighting games ever made

      Posted

      Street Fighter 4 marks the 20th anniversary of the franchise and does it in a big way. The game includes the traditional Arcade mode where you fight your way through 7-8 stages unlocking the story for each character. Difficulty ranges from Easiest which is ideal for players new to the franchise or fighting games to Hardest for veteran players who need a challenge. A big part of Street Fighter 4 is the Versus mode which includes local if you have friends over and Online if you feel like challenging someone around the world either for fun or a ranked match. Challenge mode makes an appearance offering three different modes time attack, survival, and trial. Trial is unique because it will show new players how to play the game by making you perform all the moves of a character of your choice in order to proceed. Later levels of trial will teach you how to string combos together. Gameplay consists of three different punches (L,M,H) and three different kicks (L,M,H). By imputing different directs and pressing the correct punch or kick you can perform special moves as well as finishers. Moves execute flawlessly without any lag. All 25 of the characters available are evenly balanced so you never feel like you are at a disadvantage if you choose one character over another. The only problem with the gameplay is the Xbox 360 controller itself. The D-pad is very unresponsive when doing some moves so using the analog stick will be something you may have to get used to. Street Fighter 4 is a very easy game to pick up. However, if you are just starting to play you should stay away from the online until you have a general understanding of the moves and can perform them when needed. That doesn't mean that if you are new to the game that you should never play online. Street Fighter 4 takes a minute to pick up but a long time to master. Collectibles are what will keep you wanting to play more and more. There hundreds of Icons and titles to unlock by playing vs mode as well as different colors for each character, personal taunts for each character, concept art and anime movies from each characters story. Overall, I was very satisfied with my purchase. I had never played a Street Fighter in my life but this game makes it possible for someone new to be able to compete with the veteran players because of how simple the fighting system is to pick up yet it holds so much depth. Both "casual" and "hardcore" gamers can enjoy this game. If you are looking for a good fighting game; look no further. If you are looking for a good game to play with friends; look no further. If you are looking for a game that will entertain you for a long time; look no further. Street Fighter 4 is THE best fighter out this generation of gaming.

      Good edition...Xbox Live interface needs some work

      This is a great addition to the Street Fighter collection. What's nice about it is it stays true to Street Fighter roots while adding some pretty interesting additions. I like that SF has stayed along the classic 2D style of gameplay, it's always been preferred for me over 3D fighting games. However, they did add some 3D elements that are mostly animations that add some cool visual effect to the game. The directional pad can be frustrating to use until you adapt to it, depending on your experience with the Xbox 360 controller and fighting games. Using characters that require charging back or down for 2 seconds for special moves can prove difficult depending on your skill level. The new focus special moves and super special moves (can't remember what they're called) are cool editions, but if you're playing someone who is well accustomed to using them and you aren't, you're done for. If you like to play against the computer, and you play on the hardest level be prepared to be dominated by combinations of super attacks and focus attacks. It is labeled "Hardest" for a reason though, so no complaints here. The only problem I have with the game is the Xbox Live portion, which was actually the portion I was most excited about. Finding a match against someone with a good connection can be a pain, and sometimes the lag is so bad it will take a full second for the game to render a command. Also, when you search for potential opponents, the game brings up three choices, and all three of those people might be in a game already. Why format the search this way? There should have been a search filter that searched for the optimal connection speeds and only displayed those hosts that weren't already engaged in a game with someone else. I've spent up to five minutes just searching for someone to play with on Xbox Live...very frustrating. If you have a friend who also owns the game, it is relatively easy to connect to that friend via an Invite to Game request. Despite the multiplayer downfalls, the game is extremely fun if you're a fan of the series. I think some of the new characters are kind of dumb, and I'll never play as them, but they're still fun to play against. If you're a fan of Street Fighter, you'll be a fan of SFIV.

      Best fighting game of 2009

      Posted
      BlindExodus

      Great game to play online and with friends and anyone on XBL. Good visuals, great sound, and great action. IGN.com best of E3 2008, Best of E3 2008 Game trailers, Best of E3 2008 Gamespy Xbox and PS3, Game Critics Best fighting game of the year. (yet people give the game a 1 out of 10? yeah good reviewing) I notice some people rate the game 1 out of 10 on everything saying the game is horrid and I can’t help to laugh. The game wasn’t meant to have FPS graphics there is rarely a good fighting game that does. Don’t let others turn you away with little reviews on how hard the game is or how bad the graphics are, neither are true. I have a Sony 1080p 120hz TV and the game looks amazing. The controls for the game were bad. Everyone knows the Xbox 360 D-pad sucks. So you can either spend $60-150USD on an arcade stick or $30-40 on a fight pad. But, what I have learned as well as others is if you use the tip of your thumb and are light on the controls moves will come natural and be easy to repeat like its second nature using the pad or the stick. The games AI likes to do cheap shots every now and then that can make the average person mad, but it does not happen all the time and just means you need to get better. Online play is awesome if you play in arcade mode and turn challenge mode on you will have players wanting to fight you all the time. Great game to add to your collection if you like fighting games.

      Big disappointment

      I can't believe how much hype the new Street Fighter IV has been getting. After getting my thrills from Soulcalibur IV, MK vs DC, and Virtua Fighter, playing the new Street Fighter IV was like going BACKWARDS in video game evolution! My little cousins who I tried to get to play with me were wondering if I pulled out the old Super Nintendo to play this game and I had to convince them that this was a "brand new game for the Xbox 360". The combo and ultra systems are very confusing. Even using old favorites such as Ken and Ryu was just disappointing. For a 2D game, it's okay overall. But this is the 21st century and video game fighters have evolved a LOT since the 90s. Even Mortal Kombat has stepped it up a notch (even though their main lure was the gore which was incredibly toned down with their latest release). I wanted to return my SFIV game after trying to tolerate learning it for a few days. I've had it. This game made my Mortal Kombat vs DC game look like the game of the year. If you're a die hard Street Fighter fan, this game is for you. But a game that hangs on to mainly combos and counters? No finishers? Annoying announcer voice? A one word description of all this is: DISAPPOINTING.

      Ignore the first review, its useless and not accurate at "ALL". Sorry but thats my opinion. This game is NOOB friendly on controls and most moves come out smoother than most of the previous SF incarnations. The cartoon graphics are cool IMO and I love the revenge & focus features. My only complaint about this game is no tournament mode. I hope they add it as DLC later or in the sequel. Also I think they should find a way to incorporate spectator mode with tournament ala Gears of War when you're watching a team-mate play once you've died/eliminated from tourney. Just a suggestion.

      Street Fighter IV follows Street Fighter II in the series,this game takes place before Street Fighter III.Two dozen characters are available,including the heroes and villains from Street Fighter II such as Ken,Ryu,Chun-Li,and M.Bison.New characters as Gouken,the trainer of Ryu and Ken,C.Viper,a government agent,and Seth,who can use the special moves of other characters.Fei Long,Gen,Dan,and Cammy are characters not seen in the arcade version.The only thing is you may need to buy the arcade stick to pull off better moves.If you're a fan of Street Fighter than this game is for you.

      I can't say that i have played it yet but for what i have seen its a must buy. the character models look funny but im not complaining; it grew on me. unlike other games they made the characters pretty even in power witch i love. if anyone has played Soul Calibur 4 at all they know who im talking about (Kilik). the only problem i saw was a tournament video on gamspot where everyone used Zangief and spammed the Pile driver over and over. i guessed not much has changed sense SF2. oh well though, its still looks like a great buy for all people who love the fighting genre.

      I was born on street fighter, played it on my super nintendo when it first came out. It was the thing me and my brother always played because it was challenging and just plain fun. When I heard this new version was coming up, I was ecstatic and having been waiting so long for it to finally arive. My hopes were high for a good reason, because Capcom delivers. It is a fun game, easy to pick up, and it looks gorgeous. Online play is nice to finally have and my brother and I are still battling it out with Ryu and Ken with a big smile on our face. Go buy it now!!!!
