Nostalgia is ruined by Cheap AI

on 2/23/2009

This is a review of the collectors edition of the game (360 version). It comes with a C. Viper figure instead of teh RYu figure that the PS3 comes with. The figure is cute, but in a perpetual flying kick pose. It is samll, abotu 2 inches by 1 inch. It comes with a CD of Blah sounding ingame music. Some sounded liek htey were based on the old ingame music, but is was pretty soft overall. I havent had a chance to view the DVD yet. The game itself is much more like street fighter 3 in gmaeplay. The timing doesnt feel as smotth as SF2. The game is good overall, but the AI is very cheap. Even on the easiest difficuly level if you monitor it, it ramps up the difficulty and strings together combos that whould be reserved for higher difficulty levels, forcing you to also fight cheap. This is an old Capcom trait. I also also don't think this game is balanced for the different characters playstyles. I am playing with the standard 360 controller, which is NOT ideal. Get this to play against friends and online, not against the poorly prorammed AI. Will add DVD reviw in future. ALso comes with a code for extra costumes, which are a waste of money. SO far, dont buy special edition, standard is good enough. Read More

Review Fighting game fans that don't have access to a Japanese arcade have been waiting for Street Fighter IV for a long time. Capcom's high-profile fighter continues a nearly twenty year tradition and many gamers -- especially long-time fans -- have been intensely curious as to how the game will play and what it will do for the legendary series. The good news is that Street Fighter IV is an outstanding title and one of the most enjoyable fighting games I've ever played. Capcom has managed to strip away the baggage that has accumulated around the series over the years and returned to the franchise's roots. The result is a game that plays very much like a purified, simple fighter -- but with several modern enhancements to enrich the combat. If you've been playing Street Fighter for years, this game will feel like an old friend. If you're completely new to the scene, Street Fighter IV is a great place to start...Street Fighter has traditionally been a game focused on one-on-one combat on a 2D plane. Over the years, the roster has evolved and various tweaks have been made to the formula, but the core components remain to this day. Street Fighter IV lets you select a character and square off against another warrior in the ring. Each character has a variety of normal attacks and Special Moves to take advantage of, but the actual gameplay boils down to a balance between raw physical skill and the mind games that play out between players...Street Fighter IV is a fantastic game overall and Capcom should be commended for designing a game that can work on so many levels by appealing to both casual and hardcore players. I'll admit that when I first heard I was reviewing Street Fighter IV, I wasn't terribly excited. I suppose I just didn't think much of it. But as I played and experimented with each character, fighting a variety of the IGN folks and learning something new with every match, I realized just how irrevocably deep fighting games -- and Street Fighter games in particular -- really are. I encourage everyone to give Street Fighter IV a try, even if you're relatively new to the fighting game scene. There's so much depth to the gameplay that you'll be rewarded long after your purchase...And with that, I'll leave you with the mandatory... Hadoken!
