If you played Street Fighter in the past, you will like Street Fighter IV better than other Street Fighter games. I still like Street Fighter II, though. This Street Fighter has gotten much better than those in the past. Capcom did lots of improvements this time. They updated graphics and gameplay, as well.
The controls are still the same from Street Fighter II. If you played Street Fighter II on PlayStation(r)2, you will play Street Fighter IV easily. You never beat the game. You are just playing the game for fun. There are 25 characters in this game. In this game, you get new characters. The new characters are Abel, Crimson, Rufus, El Fuerte, and Seth. Seth is the final boss in the Arcade version. The rest of the characters are from Street Fighter II or Street Fighter Alpha are on this game. The characters I like to play the most are Ryu, Ken, Sakura, Blanka, and El Fuerte. Mostly I like play Sakura and El Fuerte. Sakura is a cute Japanese school girl and she always trying find Ryu, so she can fight him. She was in Street Fighter Alpha 2. El Fuerte is a crazy wrestler cooking chef. He is seeks out the greatest fighters to learn what they eat and incorporate their recipes into his cooking. That guy love to cook, but it looks like he experiments on people. He is from Mexico. Imagine that Sakura and El Fuerte were dating. Imagine that!
The graphics are ten times better than before. Capcom is finally made Street Fighter using 3D graphics. Street Fighter had played in 3D graphics before, but it was not done by Capcom, and it was on the PSone. I like this one much better than the PSone version. The gameplay runs much smoother than before. It runs like Street Fighter II, but way better than Street Fighter II. The soundtrack on this game is pretty good. You can play with your friends or online. If you play online, you don’t have to fight with your buddy. It’s OK play with your friends, but you play online you can fight changing players from anywhere.
The first time I played online, I was getting my butt kick by few times. When I played Sakura, I kind won some few rounds. It not easy when you are playing online. Capcom did very good job on this Street Fighter game, but now they need work on the Resident Evil games, because lately Resident Evil is been getting shorter and shorter by the minute. If you liked Street Fighter in the past, you will like this one much better than other Street Fighter games. So, go get Street Fighter IV today.
