Excerpt: Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition is available as both a retail disc and as downloadable content. This review covers the retail disc, which is a stand alone release. This update provides some tweaks to the original Super Street Fighter IV warriors, as well as four new playable characters. New to this version are Evil Ryu, Oni, Yun, and Yang. The latter two should be familiar, since we saw them in Street Fighter III, but they’re retooled here, of course.
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...
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.

Mad Catz Super Street Fighter IV Fightpad Review (Xbox 360)
Gamers Daily News
5 April 2010
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.
Summary: Street Fighter IV was many things to many people. To newcomers it was the rebirth of a beloved name in gaming: infusing a nostalgic series with fresh touches, and an accessibility that hadn't been seen in Street Fighter since the days of cranking out hadoukens on SNES pads. For veterans it was watered down and defensive: deliberately taking a few steps back from the advances made over the years, to ensure the barrier of entry was low enough for new fans to scramble on...
Pros: Fans will be pleased, Fun new characters, Strong online modes, Everything about Hakan
Conclusion: Siinä missä pelihallien uskolliset kuluttajat ovat takoneet menemään Yunilla, Onilla ja muilla jo pidemmän aikaa, konsolistien odotus jatkui kesäkuun alkuun saakka. Vuosi sitten Japanin SF IV -turnauksessa julkistettu lisäpaketti on siis viipyillyt aikansa. Tunnetun sanonnan mukaan hyvää kannattaa odottaa, joskin Arcade Editionin tapauksessa mojovan 15 euron hinnan maksaneet saattavat joutua pettymään.
Pros: Pelilliset viilaukset ja pikkuparannukset miellyttävät hc-miehiä, Yun on rautaa.
