    Amazing value for the money. This isn't so much SF5 as it is "Street Fighter 4.9". [May 2010, p.76]
  2. The best game in the Street Fighter franchise, and one of the best fighting games ever made. Buy it, even if you already have Street Fighter IV.

    It's a big game, and one that requires a serious amount of dedication and commitment. You can't just dabble in Street Fighter, but you shouldn't really want to: spend a few hours trying to learn it and you'll be hooked for life. This is the epitome of hardcore gaming, a masterclass of competition that demands the u[t]most in technical proficiency and mental clarity.

    Super Street Fighter IV is not just some money-grubbing upgrade, it's a revamp and re-energisation of a fantastic game. Must buy for anyone even considering it.
  5. I put nearly 100 hours into IV, and I can easily see myself pumping dozens more into this update. If you haven't played IV at all, then $40 is an absolute steal for the ultimate version of the best fighting game in recent memory. [May 2010, p.87]
  6. Street Fighter IV was a marvelous fighter and Super Street Fighter IV only furthers that notion with excellent additions that provide a whole new life to the series that has come full circle with Capcom’s brilliant revival.
  7. If you’ve been looking to get back into fighters and somehow missed the boat on Street Fighter IV or have been waiting for something to bring you back into the world of Street Fighting, I doubt there is a better option than a game full of characters, awesome music, and a robust fighting system with great online support.

This iteration is certainly the best so far adding as it does some of the best SFIII characters to an already exhaustive roster.

    Would totally recommend it to new and old fans alike and would also recommend investing in a Tournament Edition (I have the first version) fight stick.

    Best fighting game ever. Awesome new chars, and refined balance. On top, new online modes with lobbies. A must have for any fighting game fan.

    I hated SF4. It was impossible to play for me because it's easiest setting was any other games hard mode. SSF4 is a major turn around. I hated SF4. It was impossible to play for me because it's easiest setting was any other games hard mode. SSF4 is a major turn around. So fun to play and not to hard either. I like a challenge....but I don't want a game that's so hard I can't even learn to play it. Let me work out how to play it and then add the difficulty. This was one of the very big problems that cause Tekken 6's story mode to fail as well...not to mention just one heck of a crappy story mode. THANK YOU SSF4!!!!! Expand

    We were all hyped for this game in 2009. Street Fighter was finally coming back to it's true glory. Just like how Capcom brought Mega Man backWe were all hyped for this game in 2009. Street Fighter was finally coming back to it's true glory. Just like how Capcom brought Mega Man back to it's 8 bit gameplay. And in Capcom fashion, a full add-on game was released a year later. Super Street Fighter IV presented great graphics and a cell-shaded art style that I can say I really like. Large character selections seemed to be a common fighting game trend in the 7th generation, and Super Street Fighter IV followed up on that. Combos are a big factor of Street Fighter, and Super and Ultra combos make an appearance in SSF IV. However no one can just look at the command list and immediately start pulling them off. I've only been able to pull off one, by accident for the record. Yet I also don't get the same feeling when playing SSF IV compared to Street Fighter II. It seems sometimes SSF IV is more about eye candy than gameplay. I won't complain about this being an add-on that you have to buy in stores because it's Capcom guys, get used to it. Nevertheless, Super Street Fighter IV can still be fun even with the complex combos. I'd recommend this to fighting game fans. Expand

Surely they could just have done a simple software update and DLC for the extra ultras. This was just a way of flogging peoples money. Gameplay wise its slower than the original but everything else remains almost identical, so if anything they've made it worse. Expand
