    The perfect entry point into the series for PC gamers. Time to clear some desk space. [Sept 2011, p.82]

    An artfully balanced essential upgrade for Street Fighter IV owners, and an amazing value for newcomers. [Oct 2011, p.80]

    The biggest, the deepest and the most complete fighting experience on PC. Start saving you quarters for that USB arcade stick. [Sept 2011, p.85]

    Good to see, that Capcom didn't forget the PC. Even though it took a while, we finally get a great version of Street Fighter IV for a nice price.

    If you own the original game, you may be disappointed about the lack of changes. But if this is your first Street Figher game or you just like the genre, there's just no way around this one.

    Coming from a PC-centric point of view, you should purchase Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition if you're a fighting game fan. All of the improvements are a massive upgrade from vanilla Street Fighter IV, with the redone online matchups almost being worth it on their own.

    Considering Super Street Fighter IV was never released on PC, the additions offered in the Arcade Edition are substantial.

    Here comes the definitive version of Street Fighter IV. The jump of Arcade Edition is not as big as the jump from the original version to Super, but it's still great content to keep exploring the joys of this fighting classic (and a great chance to catch up if you want this on PC.)

    Capcom enhances again its blockbuster, although perhaps the new features are not worth the price. If you have not played the previous SF4 versions, this is the best chance to try the return of the classic fighter.

    For new players, Super Street Fighter IV - Arcade Edition is a great game to enter the world of Street Fighter. The casual gamer won't find much fun in this new arcade edition but the fighting fans will have the time of their life!

    There is no better way to enter the Street Fighter world. Actually, there is no other option if you seriously look for fighting on PC. [Issue#207]

    A really fantastic online fighting game. The single player arcade mode is pretty much pointless other than to see some story cut scenes and whatnot. The trials give you a good training experience with the characters by showing you some of their available combos. But the online is where the whole game is at. Characters are balanced and interesting, combos are hard but incredibly satisfying to pull off and the whole experience is fast paced and great fun! Really the only side on fighting game worth playing! haha (apart from maybe MvC3) Full Review »

    I've always been a big fan of the Street Fighter series and when Street Fighter 4 was released to PC I was happy. Capcom redeemed themselves bringing the Super Edition on PC and it is really good! All the characters are unlocked out of the box. You really need an Xbox 360 pad or an arcade stick to play this though, don't expect to win on keyboard! If you like beat em ups then this game is well worth it. Full Review »

    A good Street Fighter with a successful graphic design, how successful struggle, why mix the attacks? More characters than other episodes. A game with nice gameplay. In short, Street Fighter is really good especially the fight ... Full Review »
