GamerGaia Review: Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition

Super Street Fighter IV, to many, is held as the pinnacle of fighting games. I’ve browsed around the net and seen it called everything from an art form to a revolution in fighting games, but my experience, coming into the game for the first time with Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition was bogged down with an extreme amount of frustration and complex button presses. So much so that I find myself constantly getting more annoyed at the game than actually enjoying it. That said, underneath the frustrations lies a surprisingly in-depth and intricate fighting game that rewards the technical control users while whipping the button-mashers with a cat o’nine tails. (PC, PS3, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Xbox 360) 5.5/10

Oh man, now I might just get super and download the DLC instead...when it price drops.

Well, it looks like I'm finally not the only one who doesn't care for Street Fighter.

I adore the Street Fighter line, and I'm not willing to give up on it yet. I hope my loyalty is rewarded!

Finally! I am not the only one who hates Street Fighter!

I think the game is great, a 5.5 just doesn't do it justice. It's a fighting game and it lives up very well to that genre.

Though I haven't played SFIV yet, I know plenty o' folk who will probably disagree with this. Still, acceptable critique.

I agree with this review, these games get so ahead of themselves that they forget that maybe not everyone is a huge street fighter fan.

If there aren't tutorials or ways to get started, I consider a game pretty bad.

only a 5.5? this game definately deserves AT LEAST a 9...i love this game so much that i am going to be buying an arcade cabinet from recroommasters.com soon to play those old classic games!
