Street Fighter IV is a sublime reintroduction to a brilliant series, one that will be celebrated by fans and adored by new players alike.

We like

  • The way it plays like Street Fighter of old, but still feels fresh and new
  • The wide range of moves and the in-depth combat system
  • The excellent training mode, which gives everyone a chance to master the moves

We dislike

  • The lengthy waiting period after losing a fight
