I have played Street Fighter since I was a little kid. This is an excellent addition to the series, the new fighters are great. The online play is pretty smooth, except that I have trouble finding matches. I have to try 5 or 6 times before it lets me into a match instead of telling me it failed to join the session.

I really appreciate fighting games that dont force you to do all kinds of ridiculous feats to unlock characters.

If you are a street fighter fan you'll love this, and if you've never played a street fighter before... this is a good time to start.

This game will make any person who spends time at the arcade, spend less quarters.
Super Street Fighter IV has all the old button mashing executions and a lot more to offer since it is a widely played online game. All of the old characters and more new ones.

If you are new to the game, Street Fighter is a old title that started out on the old nintendos along with Double Dragon games. Over the years Street Fighter has adapted super combo moves. The game is only 2 dimensional, moving only left and right.

You select your character and begin the story mode. Each Character has their own storyline and ending.

Super Street Fighter IV has implemented the tag-team ability in this title, with online ability, and if you were ever a huge fan back in the day you will still find many other great additions to this continuing series..

The few things I didn't like was the ability to play the arcade and accept online requests while in game. Sure it is great to have a New Challenger, but you do not get to accept or decline the request. -- Making it impossible to just play the arcade while the accept request is turned on. I would have requests in second-intervals of each challenge. I would finish a online battle, return to the game and blam "New Challenger has entered the ring"
There is a few other online problems, like sometimes the frame rate stalls during lag and other times you can spend a good minute finding a online game -- Which only lasts a minute before you have to search for another game. There is no online lobby once you finish fighting someone you have to search for a new opponent ~ Very annoying.

However, if you love the game you will find it continuing nicely. If you are new you might have a few problems but once you get the hang of it this game is rather fun... I only played the nintendo versions and I still get a kick out of the game.

The game is really good. I love how they brought back classic characters,but theres one thing that hurts this game for me. thats the ai spamming moves. I mean it just never ends. Take seth in arcade for an example he only does 4 moves. Zangiefs powerbomb ryu and kens upper cut sonic boom and the 17 hit combo kick thats it. now te games real good but this just gets annoying
