Summary: If you never played a 2D fighting game before and are looking for the newer model, you probably can’t go wrong picking up
Super Street Fighter IV
. This is a decent 2D fighting game, complete with tools newbies would need to get up to speed. It’s nice to finally have the Car Crusher and Barrel Buster Bonus Stages in the game but these lose whatever limited intrinsic appeal they possess and wear out their welcome rather quickly.
Pros: All 35 characters available at boot up., Online battles can be a lot of fun, (unless you get one of the many cheap fighting losers noted)., Still the best 2D fighting game series around

Conclusion: I'm glad Capcom released the Arcade Edition and gave buyers a choice to get it via DLC or the full retail release ($15, $40). For avid Street Fighters, this is a solid purchase, but everyone else can do just as well holding out for a price cut.

Summary: Parents need to know that Super Street Fighter IV is an updated version of 2009's Street Fighter IV . Like its predecessor, players win by pummeling opponents using their fists, feet, and special attacks such as tossing fireballs.
