    Synopsis


    As your opponent moves toward you, you know you can take him. Sure he looks tough, but there are telling signs of his weaknesses and you know you can knock him out with just a few quick jabs. As he reaches back, ready to throw the first punch, it's as though you're seeing the world in slow motion. His footing is unstable. His chest is exposed. You dart out of the way and throw him to the ground in one swift motion. You live for this feeling. You're the best street fighter around.

    Conquer your opponents in Street Fighter V, the latest chapter in the popular fighting franchise. Enter a world created by the same developer that brought you the Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Mega Man and Devil May Cry franchises. Enjoy the action-packed fights you've come to expect from the Street Fighter franchise — now with a centralized player base that allows cross-platform play on PlayStation 4 and PC. Choose from an expansive roster of new and returning characters, including Charlie Nash, Ryu, Chun-Li and M. Bison. Pick up your controller and punch, kick, unleash special moves and string together combos with the new, highly accessible battle mechanics, which offer an unprecedented level of strategy and depth. Lose yourself in the action and storylines thanks to the Unreal Engine 4 technology that takes the next-generation visuals to new heights. Take it to the streets and get ready to fight.

      The game has the right ingredients, but it's just not done yet. This game should have came out maybe a year later, but instead we're force to criticize it a year in advance. The story mode should have been the last the thing they worked on. The first thing in fighting games should be the characters. And many of them. People like to identify with characters - whether old or new. Most people understand the story arc of SF anyway, and newer players would get more of an idea in arcade mode... There isn't any arcade mode. Having arcade mode is proper protocol for any fighting game. So even if the game came out unfinished, there's no reason why arcade wasn't including the "bare-bones package". To save this game, there needs to be more characters because the SF universe is currently missing some personality due to the missing characters who add and shape the SF world ( ex. Fei Long, Sagat, Blanka, Sakura, Dan, etc). A lot of developers are trying to mimic other games because of the success of their rival. Capcom needs to stick to their niche and try not to lose their essence. As a Street Fighter fan, I found the MKX story mode to be too gimmicky and very...dumb actually. MK (to me) use to tell a better story in the past by not "trying" to tell the whole story. And in SFV, Capcom attempted to do the same thing, which actually turned out better than MK, in my opinion, but I don't think it should have been their focus. Honestly, it seems like the empire of Capcom is slowly crumbling and therefore, even Street Fighter is suffering for it. Something has changed in Capcom (whether new hires or what not) and I hope they e-focus and get back to who they used to be. And another thing... I don't understand how they are having trouble making some of the characters to their previous likeness. I'm giving this game 4 stars because I'm living in the hope of its future.

      Story: Each character has a story containing about 3 one round fights. Then there is a general story, which is free DLC and can take about 3 hours to complete with cutscenes. The stories are a bit cheesy and are not interesting. Versus: Versus mode is quite the standard. Simple 1 vs. 1 matches with either a friend or CPU. Survival: Survival mode is the closest to arcade we have so far. Your stats will carry over from the previous fight to the next; however, after each fight, you are able to boost stats or regenerate health. Online: The online consists of ranked or casual matches. You're more than likely to find someone in ranked matches than casual matches. The amount of time to find an opponent can vary. I was able to find an opponent in a matter of seconds on few occasions while other times took several minutes. Content: 16 fighters with only a few stages. You can purchase additional fighters with fight money (virtual currency earned in the game 100,000 each) or by purchasing the season passes. Stages are only purchasable with fight money (prices vary from 40,000 to 75,000). Gameplay: Unlike most fighting games that provide 4 attack buttons, Street Fighter V provides 6 attack buttons. 2 low, 2 medium, and 2 high with each degree containing punches or kicks. Combinations are bit difficult to master but achievable once you find a fighter that fits your play style. Overall, Street Fighter V is a solid fighting game. If you're interested in learning to play the game and take your skills online, this game is a solid buy. However, if you are looking for a single-player experience, Street Fighter V does not offer much and are better off with another game.

      Now, I haven't played a huge amount of Street Fighter in my life. When it comes to fighting games, I tend to go for more casual stuff. Street Fighter is not like that, and it's very much mechanically focused on combinations and strategy to combat all types of characters. Now what I'm fond of particularly in fighting games is character design. So of course, I'd be looking for good characters! Which leads to a disappointment. About half of the cast is locked behind paid DLC. Many stages are as well, as are costumes. Now, luckily, all can be purchased with in game currency that you don't have to pay money to get. However, this takes a very long time. My biggest disappointment is that most of the really good costumes are "premium costumes", meaning you can't use in game currency and have to purchase them individually or buy the season pass. Buying a season pass negates any money you saved over buying the arcade edition, so if you intend to get all the items don't waste your time on the base game and buy the version that comes packaged with the season pass. All in all, sound game with all the modern horrors of paid DLC. At least Smash Bros. doesn't lock half the game behind paywalls.

      The Biggest Let Down of 2016

      I've posted this review elsewhere since I have such strong feelings about this game, so here it is again with slightly more info.... The good news is that if you only own an XBox One, you're not missing much. This was one of my most wanted games of the year and I was in complete disgust 10 minutes after playing with the sheer lack of content. If you like single player or have no online connection then you're stuck with training, survival, or a pathetic story mode that can be beaten in about 5 or 6 minutes with no skill. If this had come out at $30 I would think it was worth that, but for $60 forget it. If you own a PS3, PS4, Steam or 360 then please do yourself a favor and buy Ultra Street Fighter 4 on one of those instead. Not only do you get far more content, but you'll pay a lot less too. Graphically the game looks great. However the shadowing on the characters looks terrible. If you've ever played an old Sega Saturn and remember the screen door transparencies, well its pretty much the same here, just smoothed out a little. Its not too noticeable in most screenshots, but playing on my 47 inch in 1080p it stands out like a sore thumb.

      Here's the list of features that ARE and are NOT in the game: IN THE GAME: 1. "Online Gameplay" NOT IN THE GAME: 1. "Challenges" 2. "Trials" 3. "1P vs CPU" 4. "CPU vs CPU" 5. "Player Lobbies" 6. "Cinematic Story Mode" [Coming out in June] 7. "Individual Character Stories" [Missing Chapters] 8. "In-game Shop" (Out in March) 9. "Alternate Costumes" (You can ONLY "earn" them but CANNOT unlock them until the in-game store comes out... in MARCH!) 10. "Spectator Mode" 11. "Stage Transition" (CANCELLED) 12. "Extra Battles" 13. "Gallery Mode" 14. "ARCADE MODE" (Really?...) Since Online Gameplay is the ONLY feature available for this game as of now... and if you DON'T have Internet?... (Let that sink in for a moment). And... let's not forget about the mandatory PlaySation + ($50) you NEED to play online. $60.00 for the game + $29.99 for the Season Pass + $50.00 (if you don't have PS+) to play online = $140.00 to play a game that has just 1 feature available at launch (Yeah... that does not seem at all fair for most consumers).

      Not The Street Fighter I Hoped For

      I was let down by the release of this game. A beautifully rendered game, but it is certainly incomplete at this time (March 5, 2016). Most fighting games release with a small initial roster of characters and add over time. The same can be said about Street Fighter V. Where I was disappointed is the game itself was released in almost a similar fashion. The included "story" mode for each character is a generic short story where you fight through 2 or 3 fighters, each only 1 round. You're rewarded with a new costume, but you can't even make use of your newly earned costume until the online store is made available sometime in March. Playing online is a chore because you are locked in to a favorite character that you will use for every fight unless you go back and change the character before you begin a new fight. The only other mode available that is worth playing at the time is Survivor. In this mode you run through a continuous loop of the introduced characters until you beat the predetermined limit. You reward is new color scheme for you character which is given depending on the difficulty level beat. I was hoping for a more complete experience with Street Fighter V, but I didn't get that, instead I got a release similar to the way that Killer Instinct was released on XBOX One. A very bare bones game that I am disappointed with, not to mention that the "real" story mode won't be available until the summer. If you're looking for a good Street Fighter experience, your best bet is to wait until the summer or when they release whatever souped up version they release within the next year or two.

      Street Fighter 5: Glorified Beta Test Edition

      This is an extremely disappointing launch for SF5. For starters, there's no Arcade mode to speak of...that means no way to fight against the CPU in 2 out of 3 round battles with a boss at the end (a staple of the SF series and pretty much EVERY fighting game since the 90s). The story mode is scant: You only fight 2-4 one round battles with CPU opponents and get some still comic frames with dialogue. I'm totally ok with the still drawings–they're excellent–it's just that, again, there needs to be more of it. Survival mode is pretty much bleh...just your typical one round battles for a set number of matches depending on the selected difficulty (its only real value is for earning extra colors and fight money). Furthermore, veterans of the SF series will notice some other subtle things that are unfinished...such as no special normal attacks that trigger when close to the opponent. Online VS. features are lacking as well: There's no spectator mode and the servers have connection issues–it's pretty bare bones. On a positive note, the gameplay, sound, and animations are all great and what you'd expect from a next-gen Street Fighter game...though the character roster seems a little thin at just 16 fighters. 6 more characters and additional modes are coming as DLC this year (potentially for free, depending on how much in-game money you earn), but the fact still remains...there's not much here at the moment. Unless you're an eSports tournament player, you'd best stay away from this one until the kinks are straightened out. It really does feel like a glorified beta.

      First, I am casual gamer when it comes to fighting games, but I have tried all the previous street fighter and owned SF4, last generation. My experience is the same. There is something about SF that you won't find in games like MK ( I love MK btw, but it is just different). I feel like SF always gives you this arcade feeling and it is always competitive. So, if you are buying this game to play solo, it might be a little boring compare to SF4, but if you are buying it to play online and with friends, this game probably has the best mechanics in a fighting game. It is pretty competitive, but never unfair, as I said I am not a pro but I try hard and I win a battle or two (out of 5). You won't be able to win with cheap moves or smashing your buttons (maybe once in a while). It feels pretty rewarding when you lose against someone that know what he/she is doing, and even better when you win. Ultimately, I will give a 1 - 2 stars to capcom for not delivering a complete game from day one ( most of the server issues are gone, but still, it is not acceptable). However, I am giving this game a 5 stars because it is an excellent fighting game, once you take everything out, ( server, solo options) and get down to the basics in a one on one battle, against a real person......... like back in the arcades of the 90s.
