This DLC is definitely a must buy for diehards but is something casual players really need to think about before making the plunge. Keep in mind though that Ultra Street Fighter IV is what this fighter should be and it has been perfected through hours of hard work to get it there.
This version **** the previous versions of Street Fighter 4 in one (It is actually a patch for Super Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition) making it the definitive version. All your purchases of costumes and colors from previous versions are compatible with this version. Includes five new fighters (Elena, Rolento, Decapre -Cammy’s Clone-, Hugo and Poison) extending the roster up to 44 fighters already unlocked and ready to use. It exists in disk version and in patch version (check in the Xbox Live store because apparently they have already removed the purchase of the update patch). Includes five new scenarios. The servers are still up (don't wait for a Halo-like announcement to hit you). The very robust Netcode and the games are fun (although when you lose they take away 100 player points and when you win they only add up to 50, so the effort is uphill). If there is a band from Mexico playing the title. Being an update of Super Street Fighter 4, it is backwards compatible with Xbox One.
If you have good ranking and status (battle points and / or character points) in the previous versions you will have to lose them and start from scratch when using this version. Being a "late" version there are fewer people who have it and there is no backwards compatibility for online multiplayer ranking fights with owners of Street Fighter 4, Super Street Fighter 4, Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition (so think about it before updating the data because once accepting you can no longer undo this change). There are people who have years of advantage over you by playing competitively, so losing a series of matches can hurt a lot, to regain your ranking.
It's a good way to support the Street Fighter series and show Capcom that there is interest in these types of games on Xbox. We see many characters from Final Fight, Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter 3 is one and everyone participates ignoring continuity and events (even characters that were supposedly dead). For the morbid, Poison comes out fighting alone and with suggestive poses
Another Street Fighter game to last for years.
Like it or not, this is the biggest and the best fighting game on the planet.
Deep fighting game mechanics and so many unique characters make this game an instant classic for any fighting game fan. With EVO just around the corner, the hype is only starting to build up. Shoryuken!
Ultra Street Fighter 4 takes an already incredible, content-rich fighting game, and builds upon it in ways that fighting enthusiasts can get lost in and casual fans can enjoy. Every addition and refinement, both big and small, works.
Regardless of the differing packages, Ultra Street Fighter IV is unequivocally the best of the lot, though the series is showing its wear after six years. Whether that means yet another SFIV installment will be arriving in the pipeline remains to be seen.
Ultra Street Fighter, while good, doesn’t quite live up to that Ultra name. The new mechanics and balance changes will keep the game fresh for months to come, but the new characters - which are largely the reason this is a paid update and not a patch - bring next to nothing to the game.
Made by fans for fans.
If you are new to the series, then this is a must buy.
If you've played the old versions of the game, then you have already bought Ultra.
If you're thinking "this is a new version of an old game", then you probably haven't played SF4 ever and you're just an internet troll .
The definitive version of the game. There really isn't any competition when it comes to deep, involved fighting mechanics. You aren't drowned in a quandary of different systems and minutia. Everything simply works.
The balance is also razor thin. The worst characters (when looking at a 10 point match up tier list) are only 20% below the best. The same can't be said for pretty much any fighting game aside from SF2. Using MVC3 as an example, the best character is actually close to 250% better than the worst (on a match up based tier list).
You also don't have to sit there and watch the other person play while your character is endlessly juggled for half the match. Combos are there but they are swift and succinct. No more 15-20 second long combos of MVC3 and King of Fighters 13.
The character variety is amazing. The inputs are tight and responsive while also demanding that you learn your character. There is no dial-a-combo system, so mistakes are still risky but not as risky as Street Fighter X Tekken where stray jabs lead to full out dial-a-combos.
If you are new to fighting games this is absolutely, positively a 10. If you have the older versions of Street Fighter 4 then this is a 9, seeing as how you've tread this ground before.
We will need to wait for Street Fighter V on the XboxOne,this game is the with new features,CapCom doesn't moved a thing to get it unique and this game have so many versions that looks like they are trying to win fast **** a DLC for Super Street Fighter,but here you are buying a all new game for it.
This game is like the Blink-182 of fighting games, it's cool when you are 13 years old, but hopefully you grow out of it and find out there are much better things out there. The same generic Street Fighter formula is here, but this time, with art that looks like an ugly B-list comic book. I'm not sure why this game is so beloved by the competitive crowd, but flies flock in droves to a turd, except in this case people are the flies, and Street Fighter 4 is the you know, the turd. As for the arcade mode, I can't wait to see what adventures of Ryu and M Bison they will retcon this time! If you feel so compelled to spend money on this game, just think, you could donate that money to the homeless, buy quite a few sandwiches for yourself, or even burn it! All of the above are better alternatives to buying Street Fighter 4.
SummaryThe series evolves to a whole new level with Ultra Street Fighter IV for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Continuing the tradition of excellence the series is known for, five new characters and six new stages have been added for even more fighting mayhem, with rebalanced gameplay and original modes topping off this offering.
