    This is just street fighter 2 with better graphics and new characters. The characters are unbalanced and this game feels rushed. Still fun though. Does not deserve a 10 out of 10

    I am basically giving this game a 7 out of 10 for the great animation and graphics. Unlockables and challenges are very few. Once you beat it twice there will be no reason to play anymore. Gameplay has not improved since the 1990s. Characters are VERY imbalanced. You will get beat up online so badly that its not enjoyable. This is just Street FIghter with a new coating.

    This is a great game, but the lag on PSN is horrible. If you're planning on playing offline then by all means this is a 9/10 game. If you want to play online, either play it on 360 or PC; otherwise you'll have to play with people from the same region with full connection to get a decent match.

The only advantage of the PS3 version over the Xbox 360 is that unofficial controllers are supported and you can assign each player more easily. 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 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.

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

    These powerful new attacks – along with some much needed tweaks to a few regular and super moves – add a massive amount of strategic nuance and mix up a lot of the match-ups. You also get a streamlined multiplayer lobby (where you can spectate or play solo while waiting), saveable replays and the return of bonus stages (i.e. belting barrels and cars). For its price, Super Street Fighter IV features a lion’s share of new content. Grease up and grab it today. [May 2010, p.72]
  2. 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]
  3. In a nutshell, Super Street Fighter 4 offers new characters, great gameplay, amazing value and best of all great replay value. This game is a must have. In the words of Street Fighter “A new Challenger has approached”.
