Its really not much of an improvement over the Dualshock Ps3 Controller...

Summary: I purchased the Street Fighter 4 Fightpad, for Capcom's latest scam, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. It worked, but even on the first day i played, I noticed technical issues. The controller kept on inputting my commands as down for what ever reason, and the diagonals were not as responsive. Why the hell a fightpad SPECIFICALLY made for fighting games would be wireless, is beyond me. I feel as if the controller could have been spared these troubles if wired.
Summary: This fightpad is a great alternative to those who lack a fightstick and won't be bothered with using a dualshock to play fighters. It's very responsive and looks very nice. Overall it's a fantastic controller... until it stops working correctly. This is the second one of these SFIV fightpads I buy. The first one lasted me around 2 months until something happened and it was as if the d-pad only went to the right, and there was no control whatsoever.
Summary: This is coming from an old fan of the series. And in this game one thing stands true. Your mileage will vary. Pros: The 3D graphics and backgrounds are a nice touch since it is on new generation consoles, and the animated cut scenes are pretty good too. Two of the new characters I can stand, El Fuerte and Crimson Viper. And they keep the classic movements intact. Cons: Some characters, I'm looking at you Rufus, are not balanced very well in my opinion.
Summary: The fightpad is alot better than the regular PS3 controller for SFIV. Unfortunately the pad isn't very well made and it broke after only about 2 months. Now I have to spend more money sending this back to the manufacturer getting it repaired. Not very happy since it wasn't a cheap controller and it only lasted 2 months.
Summary: So, I was doing alright with my DS3, but not reaching my full potenital in SFIV. So I decided to check out the FightPad, and I admit I was initially impressed. The six-button face makes combos much easier to pull off, the floating D-pad makes Specials, Supers and Ultras much easier to execute, and the clicky shoulder buttons are much more precise than the triggers on the DS3. My performance improved sharply (though not phenominally). I paid retail (40 bones).
Summary: I loved the old Street Fighter Games. I was excited to play this one as i thought it will be as fun as the older ones. After a while i found that it was more frustrating than fun to play. The graphics are ok. Some combo are really a pain to do and you got to be lightening fast to make some special ones. The last character of the game is ridiculously hard to fight.
Excerpt: "...haven’t looked in any high street stores for it but it seems to be readily available on the internet. ==The Characters== There are a total of nineteen characters in the game. Which includes many old faces as well as six new characters. The new characters are: • Abel – A French mixed martial artist. • Crimson Viper – A female American spy. • Rufus – An overweight kung fu fighter. • El Fuerte – A Mexican luchador. • Seth – The new boss character. • Gouken ...
Excerpt: "...generally stupid. Don't bother. Final Thoughts- Street Fighter is saved a bit by the graphics, and good technology. But not salvaged by the fact that the gameplay is boring, multiplayer sucks and everything about this game is bad. ...
Pros: Good graphics, no glitches .
Cons: Boring, repetitive, pointless, terrible online, limited fighters, over the top .
Summary: Growing up back in the day I *loved* Street Fighter 2, and still hold it in very high regard. Sadly, i'm disappointed to say that the same cant be said about this version. Not that it's completely terrible, the graphics are fantastic and are really well done. It's especially satisfying to actually see the opponent wince in pain when you (eventually) land a killer finishing combo on them.
