Summary: Well, I can't say anything bad about the game itself. I knew what I was getting into when I bought as I usually research any purchase I make. The low rating comes from the fact the game was missing the instruction manual despite being shrink wrapped. The disk itself looks brand new so I don't really know how this happened.
Stiff Characters and Stiffer Control Scheme Ruin Entirely

Summary: Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade is the 3rd release and rehash the the SF4 game that came out i believe in 2010. What we have here is basically a game with a slew of more playable modes... and if you're a SF fanatic (as I am up until the 4th installment) you know what you're getting in terms of characters and general gameplay, hence I'll keep this reviews short - I highly recommend AGAINST buying this game.
Summary: This is the same game as Street Fighter 4, the only difference is that it has more characters. The company was too lazy to even improve the resolution from the previous games. Same gameplplay same graphics.
Summary: Super Street Fighter IV is a great game. Arcade Edition is nothing but Super Street Fighter with a patch. This is absolutely insulting. When Super Street Fighter 4 came out it had its own seperate trophy list, added new characters, balanced things out a bit more, and added new features. This new version is nothing more than a few characters tossed in. I saw nothing new other than that. On top of that the trophy list is just Super Street Fighter IV's.
Excerpt: Pros: good visuals,quick fights(for those who don't like long drawn out battles, lots of characters,good voice acting, excellent ending anime style cut scenes. cool attacks. Cons: Character proportions of most of the females are ridiculous(large man hands,tiny waists, huge thighs) controls aren't always responsive, attacks of some characters are impossible to pull off, many of the ultra attacks are difficult to use, easiest difficulty is still quite hard to beat.
Pros: Challenging, Good Audio, Graphics, Multiplayer
Summary: This stick is alright for someone who wants to have fun and are playing games that don't require a lot of precision moves. Up to the point I've only played on the d-pad. I decided to switch to a joystick because I've heard a lot of positive thoughts on it. I bought this to play with street fighter, upgraded the parts to arcade parts and it still made me frustrated.
Summary: I have gotten one Ryu wireless controller back wwhen it first came out and it just konked out about 3 or 4 years later after intense use. This was my fourth Zangief controller and it broke, too. Could it be because with Zangief I use a lot of 360 motions? (I switch controllers when I switch guys.) I don't know, but it seems like the Zangief controllers might be a little shoddy.
Summary: Dear Capcom, please stop whoring the Street Fighter franchise. Packaging the same game three times now over two years w/ a few extra fighters each time is weak and a waste of Earth's resources. That is what DLC concept is for...and how the rest of the gaming industry rapes its consumers by leaving content out intentionally and making $20-$40 later w/ add-ons. Thank you.
Summary: Well, the only good things I found about this "upgrade" are: 1. 4 New Characters included. 2. You can switch to regular SSF4 anytime. 3. Improved online channels. Now the bad: 1. Out of the 4 new characters, 2 are shotokans type, more of the same. 2. No new stages, I really think Capcom should have probably include some new nice looking statges in this upgrade for instance. 3.
Summary: First off I bought this and never got it. So I went to GameXchange and bought two, one for the PS3 (Ken) and one for the 360 (Ryu) so I could play at home or at a friend's when I come over. I then bought a joystick that I am now accustomed to. When I bought the pads I liked them better then the traditional PS3 and 360 pads. The lessened the pain of using the d-pad, but didn't eliminate it all together. The buttons are positioned nicely.
