Whatever any street fighter fan might be looking for in a PSP port can be found here, for sure. The world tour mode is fun (I beat it about 11 times) and has enough variety to be great. Dramatic battle is cool. The core gameplay is tight and has the satisfying quick response that classic fighting game players will enjoy. Even for those not as familiar with fighting games, the bold roster and interesting games modes can be a fun introduction to the genre. I don’t like V-sim at all, but it doesn’t come up enough for me to feel like it takes away from the gameplay. It’s great! The characters which are unique to this game alone make it worth checking out.
I have a fight stick for my ps3 and 360. However, there is no fighting game that I've played as much as this one. Being able to grab it anywhere and play, and the amount of options and characters, the classic street fighter depth, the controls (although tough coming from sf4, great once learned)..... just everything. The only personal issue is that I find Sagat to difficult to play, and he's my main. I've gone on to Ryu but sometimes I feel like I'm spinning my wheels. Oh well, that's just me. Pointless to mention it really. Anyways, here is my easy 10.
The game is essentially a port of a decade old fighter and it can be hard as hell, but all the horsepower the PSP brings to the table can't keep this game from being at times mind-numbing frustrating when it comes to control. Put simply, the D-pad the PSP has just isn't cut out to be used for a fighting game, where fast fingers and accurate directional control is paramount.
As of June 2011 this is probably the best fighting game on PSP. I would say it is comfortably better than T5DR (which is still an amazing game - maybe a 9), and much better than Tekken 6 which was a let down.
The range of modes is by far and away the most comprehensive on the system for this genre.
Also, the addition on Yun means we can get training for SFIVAE while we wait for the disk to be released :D
