    Street Fighter V delivers where it counts as a fighting game, the gameplay, and makes leaps and bounds of improvement everywhere else. That makes it a must-buy if you're any type of fan of the series—especially since there are no Super, Ultra or Turbo versions coming out in the future.

    At launch, SFV is merely serviceable for the seasoned online warrior. For the beginner, it is simply abysmal.

    Launch troubles and lack of single player aside (which this score addresses), Street Fighter V is a brilliant fighting game. While currently in its infant stage, Street Fighter V will continue to grow into something amazing.

    At the moment, with its fantastic gameplay but a serious lack of content, Street Fighter 5 is a solid 7/10; a good game that is a great for fans of the genre but can’t be recommended to all. Hopefully though, in a year’s time when the promised features have been added and the roster of fighters has been increased in number, it’ll be worthy of a 9/10. Until then however, those looking for single player fighting thrills should look elsewhere to get their kicks, whilst those wanting to just play online will definitely enjoy Street Fighter 5, but may find its repetition of stages and fighters slightly irksome.

    With control options on the PC being rather limited, the game is only good for those who care about competition. For everyone else looking for something closer to what the older games provided, give it a month to see if things improve.

    If you're looking for anything other than a solid fighting game with strong netcode, you should probably hold off until the game sees a few more updates.

    A bit of a shaky launch, however the servers are now working fine and the connections are the best I've ever had in any fighting game; itA bit of a shaky launch, however the servers are now working fine and the connections are the best I've ever had in any fighting game; it honestly feels like local play. The cast is diverse and so far all the characters seem pretty well balanced, so you won't be penalized for liking a certain character.
    Although for now lacking a bit in single player features, this was known ahead of time and will get added in the very near future.
    Though who would want story mode when you can take the excellent gameplay online is beyond me.

There aren't many single player options (I am shocked they didn't include a player vs. CPU mode or an arcade mode) and this makes the game very overpriced for what it is. The only reason I gave it a 5 is because I think this game has a lot of opportunity in future. If they where to add more features and maybe add more characters or make DLC characters available for everyone, the price would be a lot more reasonable. However the visuals and audio are pretty good and have that SF feel to it. Expand

    REALLY REALLY BAD!

    90€ for the "Deluxe Edition"? poor roster, no arcade, no option... nothing... it's an Alpha? it's a DLC for the ultra street fighter 4? God save the capcom... after the killing of the resident evil series... now it's time to kill street fighter.

    This is my last street fighter.
