    The definitive version of Street Fighter IV, but not the best until its technical problems are solved.

    The two-player training mode and 3v3 team battles function exactly as advertised. [Issue#253, p.75]

    6 new stages and 5 new characters – sounds great until you realize that ‘new’ means ‘borrowed from Street Fighter X Tekken’ (with the exception of Decapre, which is a Cammy clone with an interesting move set). [Nov 2014, p.61]

    The fighting game that cemented by love of the genre and that taught me the fundamental of fighting games. Many hours into this game.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I gotta say. Every characters all are epically awesome. Its great that they even added some more of the classic characters to this IV ultra. I truly enjoyed playing this ultra edition of the game. I will still give this a fairly high rating even though it has some bugs. Expand

The game's technical structure and character balance is excellent. I had lots of fun playing this game with friends in the early 2010’s. And this game is indeed at its best when played with real people; arcade mode is fine, but whatever. My grievances with this game are that the graphics are quite cartoony, the characters are excessively 'roided up, and the music is rather mediocre. Expand

    Well, this is the ultimate version of Street Fighter IV.
    This game features five more characters and stages, most of them copy-pasted from Street Fighter X Tekken as well as some balance updates too.
    You know what Street Fighter IV is all about, granted you've not been living in a cave with Gollum for the past 5 years. This is simply the most played versus fighting game online (ever ?).

    The community is really active, so you always find an opponent online which is a cool thing with games that mostly rely on the multiplayer modes (Too bad King Of Fighters XIII Steam Edition is only haunted by a few ghosts by the way).

    There are several "problems" with this game/dlc as of now:
    - You have to pay about 15$ to update a 5 years old game. "Next-gen" consoles have been out for about a year now. Couldn't they just develop Street Fighter V with updated graphics, new mechanics and REALLY new characters ?
    - There are some balance problems with some overpowered characters like T. Hawk who is the perfect example right now. Guess it will be fixed with a forthcoming update.
    People who bought all the costumes DLC on GWFL were screwed with the Steamworks transition. They're pricy as hell !
    - The netcode is a disaster since the Steamworks transition. Don't try to improve your ranking right now, you could be crushed by a beginner because of the lag. This is a shame since SSFIVAE had been on Steam for about 4 months, they could have fixed the netcode during that period and even more pathetic since the multiplayer modes at the core of this game. Capcom are working on it. Let's hope it works.
    - The OST is disgusting to me. As a SNK fan, that music just feels bland, random. Not catchy at all.

    I'd have given this game a 8/10 if it weren't for the crappy netcode issues. With a good netcode only the crappy music, the cash cow DLC thing and the 5 year old graphics engine would help this game from becoming the perfect Street Fighter game.
