I grew up with Street Fighter, but SF4 definitely falls flat. It would appear they spend the better of the 1 year working on this game on nothing but the graphics and trying to make them look like they are both 2D and 3D at the same time. The battle system seems like the coding was just copied and pasted onto the discs with added complexity to the combos. I find myself doing single hit attacks more than the combos since the combo commands seems to incorporate 5 types of stick movements and 3 buttons to be input in under 1 second and expect it to be input perfectly. One tiny slip of the stick and you just gave yourself an opening.
But at least the new theme song is nice. Not "Indestructible" the one they play after it in the intro. The classic Street Fighter song remixed. It's the only reason the Game Data file is still on my HDD. It plays the song...

Graphic may look really nice, overall it not that fun, get boring in 10 minute. I'm a street fighter fan but in my honest opinion i liked the SNES version better. SF4 fail to me because special take too long to do and of course there always a stratagy to pull it off, point is gameplay isn't as great as i thought it would be. Just my opinion from this game.
