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.
Summary: I had such fond memories of Streetfighter back on the SNES - good times as Guile taking them all on with that inverted kick. So what could be better than the latest Streetfighter on the all-singing , all-dancing PS3? Well, Tekken 6, as it turns out. I was immediately disappointed with SSF4 - it felt very unsophisticated compared to even Tekken 2 on the original Playstation. Before the cries of "it's a stylistic difference!
Conclusion: I was always a bit skeptical about Street Fighter IV. I played it at a convention back in 2008, and thought it was ok. I picked up a copy when I was in America back in February, spent around 90 hours fighting vs people online and with friends thinking that that I'd only scraped the surface. I haven't touched the game for around 3-4 weeks now.
Conclusion: this game was a big let down after all the talk and i have to say the game and the fighting doesnt have the flow of tekken and the special moves aren`t as good or as flowing as mortal kombat my advice dont get it
Conclusion: Brought this a while ago and finally got around to playing it recently. I'm afraid I am not quite sold on this new street fighter though. Thing is I have had every street fighter game at one time or another and still play Alpha 3 and 3rd strike (which was by far the best of the series) on a regular basis years after buying them - will it be the same for this one?
Not a good game for fast button tapping and D-Pad controlling

Summary: I bought this game on the 30th of April 2010, and received it six days later. I only purchased this item hopeing it would be alot better than the previous Street Fighter IV, but, o yes, a big but, playing this game made me realise,theres no fun in it for casual beat'em'up fans and is only aimed at gamers that will actually purchase Super Street Fighter IV to rub Humiliation in their challengers faces.
