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.

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.
