A lot has changed since the first Street Fighter came out. I actually became a big fighting game fan since I played my very first one which is Fatal Fury about 15 years ago. Now everything is really technical and I could not just get into this game for the life of me. Seeing as it has a great hardcore following and if you are a hardcore fighting game fan then be my guest and play this game. If you like Street Fighter try it out. Personally I didn't have the patience to delve myself into a character to be great at it.
Graphics - Departure from the Street Fighter games of the past save for SF EX series. Overall it's pretty good but personally I don't like the design myself. It's just weird.
Features - It has a great online mode where you can take turns and sort of create a virtual arcade atmosphere with people waiting in line to fight the champ. I thought that was pretty neat. No lag at all and I was using DSL.
Overall if you are a hardcore fighting game fan try this, if you are intrigued in anyway shape or form about this game you should also give it a try after all that's the beauty of renting. I personally didn't like the game enough to play it for more than 2 or 3 days but I didn't regret renting it.
