Street Fighter IV fails to live up to all the hype it has generated, but what game could? In the end, all that matters is that SFIV is a fun game featuring classic gameplay (with a few new bugs) and the best characterization any of the SF franchise has received in a video game so far. Yes the new characters are bit of a letdown compared to new additions found in the Alpha series or SFIII, and you really need to install the game in order to keep the loading times from reaching ridiculous levels, but there is something that warms my heart to know I can play as Sagat again and knock Ryu, Ken, and even Akuma on their hadoken flinging asses. If you've ever been a fan of the franchise, Street Fighter IV is worth playing through to rekindle the love and memories you once had for this sorely neglected genre. Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! Shingo KICK! Wait, how'd that one get in there?
