    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]

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

    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.

    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.)

    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]

    Released in 2008. Still number one.
    All other fighting games are a joke when compared to the depth and design of Street Fighter IV.
    The true
    and only real fighting game that is timeless. Expand

    The best fighting game on PC.

    I can't understand why it has such a low grade.However, people who are playing SSFIV AE are real fans and we
    gotta say that it could be hard for beginners to start with AE
    Still, AE is one of the only versus fighting game on PC.

    You MUST buy a fightstick to play it in good conditions.

    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) Collapse

    Pro tip: get a controller first if you want to buy this game it really helps you. Other than that the game is literally perfect it is street fighter god damn it what else can you talk about. But actually i have a few criticism for this game, first of all the game has no story, that is a bit disappointing when mortal kombat or injustice has a great story. Secondly it is a bit hard to learn, again mortal kombat and injustice is much easier to get used to but beside from that the game is really grat Expand

    It's SFIV, more balanced and with more characters. Online is nearly lagless. Pretty good if you ask me.
    GFWL brings the score down. ****
    piece of sh*t DRM. Expand

    It's Street Fighter. IE, it's thoroughly enjoyable and dreadfully aggravating. I find myself wanting to improve my skill at the game, despite never picking up a fighter after Street Fighter II. Expand

    This game is complete garbage (if only to keep myself censored) and should be defecated all over to attract flies because that's the only way any living creature will go near this game. Little to no work was done in the way of making a usable command list and the makers couldn't even take five seconds to give the game any form of a plot, even a crappy one! This game has no redeeming qualities that could even be made up because it's a giant, rotten, stinking, hideous, atrocious, horrendous, horrible, pathetic, terrible, unspeakable, defective, faulty, flawed, egregious, flagrant, gross, mediocre, miserable, reprehensible, rubbishy, second-rate, shoddy, abominable, odious, vile; useless, valueless, worthless, inadequate, insufficient, lacking, scanty, shabby, miscreant, scurrilous, villainous piece of crap.
