    This game is terrible. I was bitterely dissapointed with it. All the good moves are really hard to do, which means your left with boring punches and kicks. If you want a fighting game, i reccomend Soul Calibur IV.

    How this game could get a 93 is absolutely beyond me. Prepare yourself for the glory of having the cpu use a grand total of 3 attacks on you over and over... Thrill to ultra attacks that are so mind bogglingly convoluted so as to keep you from EVER using one... Revel in the backgrounds carrying over from a time before many of you were born... Wonder at the ability for a game so heavily hyped to deliver so little... Don't worry SF fans Capcom lives, and they haven't changed a damn thing since 1991. Astro-turfing critics are making even metacritic a dubious source of info. Collapse

  1. If you're a novice, a training mode and eight levels of difficulty will help you find your way. If you're a pro, SFIV contains all the depth you've ever loved about the series, without compromise. Capcom simply got the feel of Street Fighter perfectly right. [Feb 2009, p.76]

    At the end of the day, that's really what this Street Fighter is: it's a title that's built for newcomers, yet tweaked for old school vets from the arcade and console days. [Mar 2009, p.75]
  3. 93
    Street Fighter IV is a fantastic game overall and Capcom should be commended for designing a game that can work on so many levels by appealing to both casual and hardcore players.
