    If you are a Street Fighter fan, and are looking forward to seriously competing in this console generation’s great fighting game franchise, then your time has arrived.

    The next step in fighting games' mechanics, but a step backward on game modes.
  3. With its new gameplay elements, user-friendly controls and style, Street Fighter V has turned into a 'must-play' fighting game that we are all looking for.

    Street Fighter V paves the way for the future of Capcom’s legendary fighting game series—but it’s also a release that’s relying on near-future updates in order to feel like a finished product. Once they come, however, this should really be something special.

    As of the time of this review, Street Fighter V is a showcase of potential, but little else.

    ​As a fighting game Street Fighter 5 has ​potential, especially thanks to the new mechanics in the battles. It is challenging, but it does not really show as the game feels unfinished and does not have enough modes and content.
  7. 50
    Street Fighter V is easily the fighting title I’ve had the most fun playing in my 20 years of gaming. That’s also why the overall package is such a disappointment. Instead of getting a feature complete, content filled package, we’re instead left with a bare bones offering that doesn’t even have the basics of the genre. The gameplay is phenomenal, with the enhancements being a natural progression of the series, but you have so few ways to experience it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Street Fighter V is a game with one the best gameplay experiences and online modes of its category. But the lack of solo modes will disappoint the casual gamer. Expand

    The combat in this game is enjoyable, but the little mini single player stories aren't that good and are very short. I know that there isThe combat in this game is enjoyable, but the little mini single player stories aren't that good and are very short. I know that there is supposed to be a cinematic story released later which is good (as long as it doesn't cost extra since it should have been included in the first place), but it is really disappointing that after a few hours of playing, there isn't anything to do besides the online battles and a crappy survival mode. I've already put this game down after just a day of playing it, at least until some more of the content is released. Once it is perhaps I will revise my score. Until then, I recommend waiting to purchase this game. Expand

    This has got to be one of the most barebones releases I've ever seen, I keep seeing the usual fanboy excuses such as "more content is comingThis has got to be one of the most barebones releases I've ever seen, I keep seeing the usual fanboy excuses such as "more content is coming later" which isn't good enough. When a game is released it should have at least some form of content, this is just pathetic.

    An absolute disgrace of a game, even for Capcom this is a new low.

    Worst SF game ever made, absolute travesty. The gall of these scummy developers to release an unfinished game packed with pay to unlockWorst SF game ever made, absolute travesty. The gall of these scummy developers to release an unfinished game packed with pay to unlock prompts - outrageous!

    I also think this chunky ugly visual style needs to die - the characters just look ridiculous.

    They should let the franchise die at this stage, they’ve clearly lost their way. I won’t be giving greedy useless Capcom a penny again after this insulting mess.
