"This week's edition of Critical Reception examines online reaction to Capcom's one-on-one fighter sequel Street Fighter IV, which reviews describe as "in almost every way that matters, the perfect Street Fighter." The title currently earns a score of 94 out of 100 at Metacritic.com.
Eurogamer's Simon Parkin rates Street Fighter IV at 10 out of 10, citing early enthusiasm for the original arcade release as a significant indication of the game's quality. "Capcom has achieved the unthinkable," he writes. "While it would be too generous to suggest that this game is reviving an ailing arcade industry, there's no doubt that the deep-rooted passions of a whole generation of players who played Street Fighter II at school have been rekindled.""
