"As far as the core game goes, Street Fighter V proves once again why Capcom is the true king of 2D fighting games. Street Fighter IV returned the series to its roots after the radical shift brought on by SFIII. SFV on the other hand feels even more like the SF titles of old but with the precision you would expect from a modern iteration. As far as controls go, this is a title that can’t be matched and is tailor made for those who are serious about their fighting games. Moreover, this is the Street Fighter game that fans of the series deserve (mechanically speaking)."
