Super street fighter 4 is a great game. It brings the feeling of playing an Arcade game right to your pc. Yes this game is very hard to master and you get your butt handed to you by the A.I many times but it is worth it. Eventually you get to a point where you can master a certain characters combos and do some serious damage to your opponent. This game takes practice and is mainly for those who enjoy 1v1 fighting style games. The graphics are also very good and very vibrant in colors and whats going on in the background, I own the game and think it plays flawlessly. In my opinion it is best played with a controller of some kind. landing combos on a keyboard can be a bit stressful or difficult at times
Mechanically great, not as funsycomantis1991 | May 16, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
Street Fighter IV controls and moves amazingly, combos rarely fail, and the action. Is fast-paced. The problem I have is that you can't so anything unless you've mastered the combos. Which you can't do unless you play on easy, which is so painfully easy, that you don't wanna play enough to get used to the combinations. Overall, I acknowledge that it's a great games, but they're not very accessible. I also still think Third Strike is a superior fighting game in every way.

After years of upgrades came Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition for PC. Excellent fighting game that stays true to the franchise's root, SSFIV is accessible game with a huge learning curve. In this version, there are a ton of characters to play with a great variety of fighting styles. It's one of the best fighting games of the moment, if you're a fan of the genre you should play it.
Hard to Master, Fun to Play!kbullock | Aug. 25, 2014 | See all kbullock's reviews »
Street Fighter is a classic Fighter, everyone who is involved in the community knows that by now, but even so, it is one of the more complicated fighters that I have ever played. When I say it's complicated, I mean that the combo system is a bit tricky to master. As someone who is really engrossed in Fighting Games, playing games such as BlazBlue, Persona 4 Arena, Skullgirls, etc., I find Street Fighter's combo system just a bit...harder to understand. It's a game that makes it impossible to button mash and pull off combos, yet great combos can still be accomplished with ease. The game's visuals and audio are astounding, bringing the game to life, along with the amazing cast of voice actors. Aside from the game's one problem that I have with it, I'd still recommend this game to anyone wanting to get into Street Fighter.
Best fighting game on the PC.Ghostbacks | July 1, 2014 | See all Ghostbacks's reviews »
As an avid Street Fighter 4 player, I consider this game to be one of the best fighting games currently available. Not only the character roster great, comprised of 30+ old and new fighters from the series to date, but so is the sophisticated combo system that is both easy to pick up yet difficult to master. I wasn’t particularly a fan of SF4’s visual style and initially reluctant to try the game because of it, yet I’ve grown to appreciate the unique look and feel of each characters and stages that the developers faithfully recreated in this title. Like many similar games in the genre, SSF4 was initially released on console systems and then ported over to PC. Luckily, the developer Capcom has done an amazing job, implementing number of customization options for PC, such as support for greater than 30fps and multiple resolutions including 1080p. In addition, the game also supports many controllers out of the box including XBOX 360 controller and numerous fightsticks. Outside of Games for Windows Live, game runs smoothly and the loading time is relatively short, so there isn’t much for me to complain about this quality port. Although brief single player portion of the game is quite good, the multiplayer is where this game truly shines. Thanks to its improved netcode, finding multiplayer matches are quick and reliable. Built-in match setups work consistently for the most part and despite it missing my favorite “championship mode” from a previous title, both ranked and endless mode keep the game interesting and fun. I really like the replay / save feature as well, which helped me to capture and savor those favorite character match ups over the years. Super Street Fighter 4 definitely isn’t perfect and the game isn’t groundbreaking enough to likely persuade those of you who aren’t interested in fighting games. If you hold even a little preference over the genre though, this is good as any place to start. I wholeheartedly recommend this to both casual onlookers and fighting game fans.
