"Old school fighting fans rejoice, the king of the fighters has returned!
I myself am a fan of 2D fighters, and have been my whole life. Being one of the many who spent thousands of dollars in quarters between such classics as Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat, I for one am extremely pleased Capcom stuck to the original formula (unlike Midway). Street Fighter fans will feel right at home with Capcom's latest iteration of the series. The fighting mechanics have stayed the same, which is a good thing. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Sure many people might disagree, and were hoping for a revamped fighting system, but sticking with something that is tried and true was the best bet for Street Fighter IV."
