    Despite its price, fan soundln't miss this DLC. Yes, it's just forur new characters, but the gameplay is completely different, and the pros will feel like playing a brand new game.

    Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition tweaks Super Street Fighter IV in a way that only passionate fans can appreciate. Beside the four new charachter there's a completely different balance for old charachters that gives the game a more "rushy" style of play.

    SSFIV: Arcade Edition brings everything that previous iterations have brought to the table, but with four new characters and some tweaks to the gameplay. Hardcore fighting fans will salivate, but casual fans will wonder.

    If you worship at the altar of Ken and Ryu, you'll have Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition already. If you're simply a casual fan, with Super Street Fighter IV already, there is no reason to get this as a stand-alone game, considering that the only noticeable additions are the four new characters which you can just download as DLC for Super Street Fighter IV.

    Honestly, the level of enjoyment you'll get out of the game will largely depend on which character you play. If the character you play is now one of the stronger fighters on the roster, then you'll most likely have a blast steamrolling the competition.

The game is constantly being tweaked and balanced for competitive play, with a free version 2012 update being recently released. If you own an older copy of this game and aren't constantly going back to it, you wouldn't need this update. If you are constantly playing this game, you can upgrade your disk based version of Super or buy the DLC. Great edition to a wonderful fighting game. One of the staples of the community. Expand

The developers alsoIt is definitely a good addition to the already branded as the best fighting game of all time (Super Street Fighter IV). The developers also release the balance patch 2012 version which makes this game complete. The only thing that I have NOT see from this series is the character that has a combination of five different fighting styles (Street Fighting, Martial Arts, Kickboxing, Wrestling & Submission). The character that has speed, power of grappling skills & submissions in one. This would definitely create a higher level of "X" factor excitement. Expand

Gameplay is well balanced and the online mode is decent. But Capcom should be aware that the success of the series is due to fan loyalty, and unfortunatly Capcom doesn't seem too grateful for that by making us pay for new content. This should have been a simple patch, especially if the main purpose is to rebalance characters. Capcom never puts all the characters in the first itteration because they know people will pay for new characters even though they bought the game on day one.
    I just bought Street Fighter X Tekken on day one and I'll probably regret it.
