Street Fighting has Evolved Again!
Street Fighter was the first and only head to head fighting game i could play. It was so novel and groundbreaking and simply just had better combo moves and values on how to take someone out (in not taking itself too seriously) when compared to its' competitors like mortal kombat. Street Fighter is epic in every way and now Capcom has brought the series once again to a new level with Fighting Evolution. Perhaps it is because these titles are just so comforting to me, i mean there is not a significant improvement on graphics but that is not the objective nor would it serve purpose here like George Lucas unable to take certain liberties in the Star Wars Prequels for continuity. The main draw- and one that should have been done long ago- is the opportunity to combine all the legendary characters from 5 arcade classics (All streetfighters even red earth which is a welcome if different addition). A cool feature and seemingly neccesary is the ability to choose a 2nd fighter for a later round in the fight and this character can be hidden during the round selection. I also love the gameplay as i can utilize combo moves much easier than i used to with analog controllers which i didn't have back in the day, i havent busted out a "Blanka Ball" in ages but it is still a blast and Chun-Li is such an important female character in gaming history. Anyway, this game is a great addition for nostalgia as a celebration for the 15th anni of street fighter or just if you still wanna kick some ass or have a great time with friends. The series is still top-notch and it will keep you busy for hours as you already know the replay value of this franchise. Overall a tribute to a classic turned into an all encompassing super-brawl. highly recommended.
