Fun until Seth.......

For a HD game it doesn't really look all that good, there aren't many moves for each character and people constantly quit if you are winning online. Personally i tire of the endless Ryu, Ken, and Akuma matches too. Basically it's street fighter with a new look, some new characters, and really, really bad cutscenes that make almost no sense. the worst thing about the game is Seth, you will know him when you get to him and wow, he is practically invincible. Try beating him with C.Viper, i dare you! On medium he is overpowered.

All in all this game is a mediocre good time until Seth, then the fun is thrown straight out the window.

I hate to admit it but I'm very disappointed in it. And I'm a HUGE Street Fighter fan too so this isn't coming from a Mortal Kombat fan trying to lower the star rating (like you can tell when reading some of the other reviews). For those of you reading this wanting to find out if you should rent it or not: RENT IT (regardless if it's good or bad - because it's a SF game and you should rent it for that reason alone), but here is what you're in for; it has the same MAJOR problem as Street Fighter 3; it was great until you get to the Final Boss - in this case 'Seth' - then it becomes ridiculously hard and a little dumb (because just like in SF3 the first round is pretty easy but then he turns into a SUPER BOSS in round two and it just gets stupid - frustratingly stupid where Seth can do ANYTHING he wants whether you're blocking or not). Everything else is pretty great though, to the point where I wish I could give it a higher score, but the Boss (Seth) is so lame that it brings the whole game down from Great to just Fair. I wish Capcom would go back to making a Street Fighter where the Boss is just a regular fighter (like Bison) with no tricks or SUPER agilities, powers, etc. All-in-all I give this game a 5.5

U Suck Seth

The game is a lot of fun if ur playin against anyone that isnt the computer.
The graphics are pretty sweet with no real story to speak of, at least not one that seems to get anywhere, just kinda movin along like a turtle.
The new fighters seem to be pretty solid with only a little cheapness from abel with his invincible rolls to unblockable attack but thats easily avoided. The revenge gauge can be built up too quickly from blocking attacks though besides that its a solid addition.
The extra modes are basic except for the mode that shows u every move and combo for each person and i think that should be put in all fighting games.
ok, so its really not bad playin against the computer until u get to the boss of the arcade mode, seth. he is just far too cheap and it makes playin the arcade mode no fun at all. I m a big street fighter fan and everything else about this game is great.
If it wasn t for seth i would say this is one of the coolest fighting games i ve played in a while, seth just sucks way too much and it makes me barely able to play any of the other modes in case he shows up
