I don't even know how to describe this game. It's as if Capcom believes that every gamer in the universe has been playing Streetfighter forever. I however have not, resulting in a rather miserable experience.
When I first got the game I gave it my best, I tried out a few different characters (Akuma, Vega, and a couple others) but couldn't make heads or tails of anything. The so called "Tutorial mode" is not a tutorial at all, but instead a practice mode which does not even attempt to teach the player anything.
The command list was also quite infuriating. The text and symbols are very small and blurry (I've heard that this is not a problem if the game is played on a HD TV, but I do not have the cash needed for one of those puppies) and even the symbols that I could make out made very little sense. There is an "explanation" button, but it only shows the player what half of the symbols mean, leaving out one of the most important parts, what symbol means which button.
The game wasn't all bad though. The graphics and stages were rather nice and some of the character designs were okay (you know, the ones that are not just a gorilla sized man that lookes like a copy/paste of ryu with a different head) and the announcer, while really annoying, was kind of silly and put a smile on my face.
While I'm sure that to experienced street fighter fans this game was probably quite fun, to me, a noob as some would call me, it was just absolutely awful.
