The lights are on
I'll begin by saying that i love fighting games. Not just street fighter but from Tekken to the marvel series to King of fighters. Since i was a kid i have been trying to improve my skills in the arcade and have reached a point where I'm not EVO good but can hold my own to all those cheap Sagat players and those people who are insanely good with Storm in Marvel VS Capcom 2. When it comes to Street Fighter 4 all i have to say is that i absolutely love almost everything this game has to offer. First off,the roster includes all those familiar faces that everyone has come to love or hate. To Zangief with his devastating piledrivers, To Chun-li with her graceful kicks. The game also introduces new faces like the french MMA grappler (I SAW THAT!) Able, To Rufus who even though he was intended as a comic relief character will still rip you a new one. The gameplay goes back to basic 2D style with a 3D treatment that can be hard to picture in action but once you see and feel, you will realize that it worked like a charm. Some of the new mechanics include the focus system which allow you to cancel moves to either avoid getting caught off guard after a blocked move or to add further damage by adding hits to your combos (Though it can take sometime master). Where this game shines the most is at the online department, if you get into the game you can find yourself spending hours just going through opponents or just trying to master character who isn't Ryu or Ken. The online includes Ranked, Player and Championship matches (Which can be intimidating once you get to a certain level). My only problem with the game has to be the last boss battle, no not because he is "hard" but because he resembles a lot of other characters in movies and video games and his name is "seth".... I feel that Capcom didn't even try on this one but once you get past the look and name he can be a pretty touch opponent if you don't know the strategy to beat him..*Coughstayinonecornerandwaitforhimtojumpthendeliverananti-airattackcough* Overall I feel Street Fighter 4 could be the best fighting game of this generation, Iv had this game since day one and still find myself playing it like there is no tomorrow.
