    Ultra Street Fighter IV arrives on PS4 with lots of game modes, characters, costumes and all the traditional SF4 flavor. A must-buy for beat'em up lovers who have passed on previous versions.

    Overall, this is definitely a welcome addition to the PS4 library. Street Fighter V is still a ways off from release, so if you need some excellent Street Fighter action on your PS4 right now, then I can highly recommend downloading this.

    While there are some things that could use tweaking via a patch, Ultra Street Fighter IV has come to PlayStation 4 with flying colors.

    As a game, Ultra Street fighter IV is a blast, full of content that will keep you busy until the fifth chapter. The PS4 version, though, is a rather poor conversion.

    Even after the necessary adjustments it remains the least responsive version of this game, a situation quite unjustifiable, probably due to the inexperience of Other Ocean.

    For the time being, there are simply too many problems with Ultra Street Fighter IV on PlayStation 4. The input lag is definitely an issue, the technical hang-ups mar an otherwise astounding-looking game, and there aren’t enough new features or additions for hardcore fans to warrant a purchase.

    The best Street Fighter IV version, one of the best VS fighting games to date... in the worst port ever! On PS4, there are drawbacks in every aspect of the game. Such a shame for such a great game.

The graphics look as good as ever on the PS4, and the game-play is just as good. People complain about how the game has a ton of glitches and connection issues, but the truth is that it HAD glitches and connection issues. After the first few patches that were made, I can tell you that this game is as good as is was on the PS3 or Xbox and maybe even better. I live in Eastern USA and I battled someone in the UK with almost zero noticeable lag. The menu screens are quick, and the time it takes to get from character select to the arena lasts SECONDS, almost no loading time. I think this is an amazing game. It's well rounded and, from what I've seen, glitch free. Expand

For a 7-year old game, it's actually quite good in glorious 1080p. Hadoken your way to the end of the tournament. FADC combos are worthy for extensive, yet amazing combos. All 5 costume packs, Edition Select, Omega Mode. USF4 PS4 is the perfect package and a worthy Game of the Year Edition. Other than that you have a really good game. Expand

    The game is not as buggy as everyone says. the majority has been fixed now so dont worry. for such a low price its definitely worth buying.The game is not as buggy as everyone says. the majority has been fixed now so dont worry. for such a low price its definitely worth buying.

    loads of characters, nice graphics and classic SF nostalgia. if u dont want to pay so much for the SF5 with its lack of current features and unfinished feel and want to enjoy a classic beat em up then its a safe bet.

    Dont want to fanboy out on this game, my review is a little late and my love for this title is so HUGE I have enjoyed so many hours on end onDont want to fanboy out on this game, my review is a little late and my love for this title is so HUGE I have enjoyed so many hours on end on it. It is simply right there in my heart as one of the best SF titles ever made.

    But, it has its flaws.

    With the new release of SFV, I though I review this as well.

    The game fights great, it is really balanced finally and a lot of content changes have gotten rid of unblockables and exploitable tactics. New added characters are also cool, and the final roster is large and a lot of fun to go through.

    The drawback to this game was and always will be something that bugged me from the go. The Ultra Combos. They are there as a mechanic primarily to get casuals more into it. Basically they have and always will be nothing but a revenge mechanic that gives access to the BEST SUPER of a character. Derp. In other words, you want to have access to your most powerful move, then get your face punched in enough >.<

    Despite this, the game is still too hard for some newcomers. That is a little all because we live in a generation that wants everything handed to them. Play the game guys and learn it. We used to learn these games on Arcades that the owners would put on hard difficulty just to get more coins from us and other douchebag veterans popping in whenever they wanted to challenge us. We lost over and over again until we learned it. Simple. And this is too much to ask for on a game that now has training modes, challenges, and that same arcade more that can now be difficulty adjusted so you can learn it better? What more do you people want for crying out loud?

    This all backfires on the game regardless, since newcomers find it too hard (wrongly as they simply expect a game with no learning curve, and this is not the case for a true fighting game, but whatever) and veterans finding mechanics like that FDACblahblah whatever its called and Ultra Combos being exploited as a means to never commit to moves and access more "combos" for pros in the end as well. Talk about mechanics that backfire.

    It is also a shame that the game is sold again as a separate version, when it could simply have been a downloadable update for a small price or heck, even for free like updates in SF5 will be.

    All in all, my love for this game and fanboy-ism aside, I believe that it got a lot of things right but missed the mark on some other things, coming to a score of 7/10.

    Story mode is also lacking for people used to things like MKX and MK9, however it did release before BOTH of those games and a story mode was simply the answer Nether Realms had to at least have ONE thing better than SF. Even so, this is a fighting game, and its all about the fighting from as far back as the first days. The days when we played it in the arcade. No stories and RPG's or what not. Its not an adventure game.

    Jump in and fight, and enjoy yourself and have fun doing it. That is what it is about.

    Great title, a little short in some ways, and compared to other SF titles I would rank it third. 1st and 2nd place I reserve for SF5 and SF3. SF5 is too new for me to be able to be 100% with the notion of it being better than SF3 or not, and although it has a lot of balance and diversity and better in many ways than SF3, SF3 still holds the title in other ways. So only time will tell. Point being, SF4 comes to a close second after those two (if they are tied) or a third (depending on which people find to enjoy more).

    And that is a great achievement regardless of new version costs and what not from Capcom. Every SF ever was founded on different versions. That was the point to SF4 too, to throw back to the classics with namings such as Super Street Fighter 4 and Arcade Edition, etc.

    Different times perhaps, and wrong price-tags, and this is something that no longer exists for the franchise. All in all, this is well deserving a 7/10!

    My final score is upped a little to 8/10. Although I don't want to go completely fanboy on this, as a personal review I believe some objectivity should be allowed from my personal experience and fun with the game, pushing that 7 up to 8.

    Terrible port. Full of bugs and glitches, lag is no better than Ps3 version (and they promoted it as being almost lag free!), the menuTerrible port. Full of bugs and glitches, lag is no better than Ps3 version (and they promoted it as being almost lag free!), the menu stutters a lot. Played at a friends house and it crashed to XMB twice in 2h. I'm glad i didn't buy it.
    Sony went cheap and used a cheap crap studio to make the port and got what they paid for, a cheap crap port. Gio Corsi, or whoever is responsible for Sony third party quality control, should be fired for allowing a game in this state to be published and sold as "ultimate" version.
    If it is to make crap ports, i would rather have no ports at all.
