"The first thing that got my attention was that this game was faster than Street Fighter IV. SFIV had a certain sluggish feeling to it, and while SFV has a bit of this as well, it isn’t as immediately noticeable and it certainly doesn’t hurt the game in any way. The other things that stood out was that the camera is slightly pulled back; making the characters appear smaller on screen. This is actually something I appreciated as I felt the characters in SFIV were too big. As far as presentation goes, this felt like the SF games of old and I loved that."
