Reviews for Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition
The classic is backJorgel | Jan. 30, 2013 | See all Jorgel's reviews »
Street Fighter has always been as always been a classic fighting game, with unique fighters and beautiful 2d graphics. This fourth edition of the game brings the old and good formula, but with new 3d cell-shading graphics, along with a good gameplay. As always, Sega launched a lot of versions to the game, and the Arcade Edition is the last one of SSF4: there are a few gameplay changes targeting balance to the fighters as well as new fighters, what makes it a very complete game. If you are a fighting game fan and don't have it already do it right always: it is the best fighting game on PC nowadays, and you won't be disappointed.
Superb fighting gameStebsis | Jan. 29, 2013 | See all Stebsis's reviews »
Super Street FIghter 4 is a great fighting game with 39 very different fighters. It's fun to try out different characters and try to find out the ones you like.
Graphically the game looks great. Cell-shaded graphics are beautiful to look at and characters and hit animations look awesome.
If you buy SSF4 I urge you to also buy a controller, or better yet an arcade stick. It's just bad to play with keyboard, and even with controller it's hard to make some of the harder moves precisely. Arcade stick definitely is a best choise, especially when playing online where the game really shines.
There aren't that many fighting games on PC, but SSF4 Arcade Edition shines through all of them. It's fun and fast paced, just get a friend to play with or go online, because just fighting the often unfair or just too easy AI starts to get boring, it's great to hone your skills with AI, but not that fun in the long run.

Basically the same game as the previous 2 iterations of SF4, but now with all the wonders of DLC. Yeah, it's a great game, but Capcom are clearly milking it, the game does not need 3 different versions. At least they didn't cut off the community by making this version of the game separate online to the regular SSF4.
Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition - reviewcarlyle | Jan. 10, 2013 | See all carlyle's reviews »
In this chapter there is the addition of fourteen fighters to begin the long list of new features compared to the previous title, all previously unlocked. The heart of the game, as above, can only be the two modes and multiplayer Versus Live. Three new methods have been introduced: Team Battle, Endless Battle Tournament. While the first mode consists of the classic 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 to start the last two players connect to a lobby with up to 8 players will battle two at a time, with the rest simply will watch the battle until they reach the their turn. Endless Battle allows endless clashes between the winner of the clash before, it will play up to their first defeat, and who will book first for the next battle. In Tournament mode instead of up to 8 players will battle in a tournament in direct confrontation randomly generated by the game. The technical sector has remained essentially unchanged from the previous chapter, the changes to the roster of fighters rebalanced and online modes really add a lot of irons in the fire users who come directly from the first version.

Street Fighter is back and better than ever with Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition 2012. While SFIV was previously available for PCs, SSFIVAE brings the complete package by including characters previously exclusive to consoles and the arcade, along with a slew of balance changes that completely change the dynamics between each character. Players also will be treated to a quality port that meets and beats the visual and performance of its console brethren, while also offering infinite costume modding possibilities.
On the downside, this game does require the usage of Games For Windows Live, which results in a number of networking issues and minor inconveniences. These issues are not all too common, making them rather ignorable. Ultimately, this is a fantastic addition to the library of any fighting game fan and is easily the best option for people looking for a fighter for their PC.
Great Fighting game!fable2 | Dec. 22, 2012 | See all fable2's reviews »
Defenetly this game is one of the best Capcom had ever developed really, has it grows it's not pack with much surprises but it's a heck of fine game. I'll start with the new and added things in it. It´s still SSFIV but in the arcade edition there where just added new characters like Evil Ryu, Yang and Yun and Oni. There's and Arcade Mode, for getting to know the story of the character you choose to fight with. Training Mode, develop combos or battle tactics for yourself. Trial Mode it's a way to get to know better your favorite character they give you all combos and ticks available for each one. The Challenge Mode included in the trial, more like way to spend time and a classic one actually like, the give you a car and you have to break it before the time ends. Battle Log, where you set your title and some phrases, and get to watch your replays or others. And one i should mention before the Network Mode where all options are typical like any other fighting games and you get to fight players around the Globe. It has a stunning graphic and one (But not easy) command option, that's one of the problems that it's difficult game for people. I find it hard a bit in your way around the arcade. It requires real fighting games experience, lot of quick thinking and time to learn. All characters has its Ultra and super, you can only active the Ultra that its a devastating combo move when your life bar hits a certain point, and you can only activate super when your Gauge bar is all filled up, and for all the characters there are the effect in colour it opens up the more time you spend playing with one character. From all i got this is all for my review.
Finally a good fighting game on PCpanz3r88 | Dec. 21, 2012 | See all panz3r88's reviews »
Super Street Fighter 4 is probably one of the few fighting game released on PC. This is the last version of Street Fighter, with all the 39 fighters . In the last iteration of Street Fighter there are many improvements that allow to have a better online experience. The game has a good graphic and the commands are easy and intuitive. The main defect of the game is that more or less half of the fighters are clones of Ryu and that there are not many single player modes. If you want to buy Street Fighter 4 you will do it to play in multiplayer
The best fighting game of this generationCavalieroscuro | Dec. 21, 2012 | See all Cavalieroscuro's reviews »
Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition is, for sure, the best fighting game of this generation. It includes all the characters from Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4, plus new fighters like Yun, Yang, Oni and Evil Ryu. The game requires both Steam and Games for Windows Live to run, and you MUST have a pad to properly play it (the X30 one is the best option here). Well, there's nothing to say, just if you love fighting game buy this one because for sure is the best you can have at the moment.
Best Fighting game.DukePaul | Dec. 21, 2012 | See all DukePaul's reviews »
Capcom bring us to PC the best fighting game of the generation, Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition has an explosive gameplay, easy for the new players and with 39 characters (classic characters like Ryu and Guile and new ones like Rufus and Abel) is the most balanced version.
The classic remixes from the old characters are awesome, the facial animations are incredible funny and the light effects gives to the game a unique look.
The netcode for the online multiplayer is great, it is like playing with a friend near to you and the options are huge, you can make a lobby with seven spectators, they will wait until the battle ends and then one of them will be your next opponent.
I highly recommend this game because is essential in every collection even if you don't like fighting games a lot.
