One of the best fighting gamelok0812 | Dec. 31, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »
This edition of SF4 is by far one of the best fighting game within the genre. The gameplay still remains back to its roots by using different combination as well as directional control to dish out moves. With the new characters added to the roster gave the game much more variety of gameplay with each of its unique characters. Story continues on but not really the main point of the game. Multiplayer aspect remains fun with people with similar latency that can be seen on the lobby to ensure a fair fight. Overall, this is one of the best fighting game on the PC to date.
Complex and Steep Learning CurveROKET | Dec. 26, 2013 | See all ROKET's reviews »
I bought this thinking I would be getting one hell of a fighter fix but as a noob to these types of games and as a noob to SF4 I had a really hard time having fun with this game. The game is beautifully made and is packed FULL of content but understand that you will need to spend a good amount of time with the game in order to actually have a good time with it.
The controls and systems are tight. I never had any complaints about the responsiveness and smoothness of the controls. The gameplay is also very satisfying when you figure out the different moves. The game also sports a variety of modes and a practice module that allows you to practice your moves. I liked that. It also has multiplayer and TONS of characters to choose from.
The overall aesthetic of the game is awesome. I love the colors and animations and really liked the different characters. I dont think there was much of a story mode but I didnt really buy it for that. I bought it for the ladder gameplay and playing with friends. Overall a great looking and presented game...even if it couldnt really hold my attention for long.
Fun to playXillion | Oct. 18, 2013 | See all Xillion's reviews »
When i first played this game, it was hard to get into. I lost a lot of matches online just starting out the game. It's recommended that you should practice offline with bots before going online in order to get a sense of familiarity for the game. After practicing, the game was actually fun. The music is really enjoyable and the story is great. The game is fast paced and is a great starting point for anyone who is looking to try out fighting games. Definitely get this.
A must-have for any fighting fanatics out thereBubbaSquare | Oct. 4, 2013 | See all BubbaSquare's reviews »
The in-depth and extremely steep learning curve may seem daunting to some, but when you go in and perform your first combo-kill on a friend you then get one of the most satisfying experiences in all of gaming. The multiplayer is very much active and competitive online currently, so you should have no worries trying to find a game! This game is all about practice, and as you know, Practice makes Perfect! Keep going at this game. Though you may suck now, know that you may one day be the SSF4 Master!

I've been playing Street Fighter 4 since basically it's release. I've always loved the franchise and it's been growing strong since 3s (Or Third Strike) and it just reminds me of how good Capcom is at making solid fighting games.
The game itself is solid - all the characters have their own fighting style, all tweek'd and tuned differently. In Arcade Edition they added 4 new Characters (Yun and Yang from previous series, Oni and E.Ryu) as well as more balance changes from the previous version. The game had been balanced a few times before and this is the final balance change before USF4.
If you're wanting to get into fighting games, especially the Street Fighter Series, this is a great Entry level fighter with deep fighting mechanics. It's easy to pick up, there are tutorials for every character (Not including the AE new characters) and practice modes, story modes and the like if you don't like online play.
The main reason I love this game is for it's online play. It's unrelenting and challenging, and gives me that challenging gameplay that I crave from a fighting game. You can fight in ranked matches or Endless battles which is a lobby you can have plenty of people fight with you in (Max of 8) in a round robin winner fights all.
