From the PlanetXbox360.com review:
"Let's cut straight to the chase and avoid the buildup; Street Fighter is back and in tiptop shape. Whether it's the original Street Fighter or any title in the Street Fighter Alpha series, it doesn't matter if you've played the any previous iterations of Street Fighter because Street Fighter IV is a great starting point for any newcomers. It's even a sight for sore eyes since longtime fans have been dying to play a new title in the franchise for the past several years. The original cast returns, the signature moves return, and the same good old-fashioned one versus one combat is ready to sweep gamers off their feet once again."
