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
Cons: A cheap ploy to get everyone into gaming online and purchasing ongoing upgrades. Remember, kiddies, it’s not about quality product…it’s about, licensing, , and racking up, ongoing, endless fees for access to same, Removal of the Time Trial and Survival Modes?, As with all 2D fighters, moves and combos can be difficult to pick up for those less familiar with the series., As with most 2D fighters (and to a lesser extent, 3D fighters as well), moves are cheap, (particula...

Summary: Parents need to know Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition has content that might be deemed inappropriate for young eyes and ears. Expect violence in the form of fierce hand-to-hand fighting, though without blood or gore. Women and men often show a lot of skin, and the camera sometimes zooms up close on female fighters' body parts. There is one visual reference to alcohol and some mild profanity, too.

Summary: This is an excellent Sega Saturn ’clonepad’ and $40 is a fair price given its high quality. As it is functionally the same as the previous Fightpad aside from new Super Street Fighter IV themed art on it, this product gets the same Overall rating as the original.

Pros: + Gameplay immer noch sehr solide, + Verbessertes Replay-Feature, + vier neue Kämpfer, + noch immer recht günstig
Cons: - nur wenige Neuerungen im Vergleich zu SSFIV
