Street Fighter (SF) is one of the top fighting game series in the world. It’s very well known even by non-gamers. I met it the first time on SNES machine more than 10 years ago. I can still remember beating up my friends all the time. Of course most of them are not gamers 😛 hehe
Well, not so long ago I heard that Street Fighter IV, the latest series of this game is going to be released on PC. WoW, I was quite surprised. Having been a PC gamer for so long I know that there aren’t many fighting game for PC, especially nowadays. So, I guess it’s worth the shot 🙂
I finally had my hands on it about a week ago. The graphic is very very beatifully done, especially if you compare it with the SNES version 😀 But… I feel like I don’t have the right to give much comments on the graphic side. My computer isn’t well equipped for new games, so I have to set down most of the graphical enhancement options to be able to play it with playable speed 😛
Anyway, I’ve been playing it for a while and it sure brings back the memory. As most of all the SF series, we can find all the classic SF characters in this game, plus other characters that sums up to 25 in total. The gameplay is classic, hey, it’s a 2D fighting game in a 3D era, what would you expect? They gave you the original special move, and 2 combo meters that allow you to perform 2 kind of super special attack for each character. It supports online feature using Microsoft Games for Windows – Live. I think it’s cool that we can fight anyone in the world anytime… But I haven’t try it, yet. Well.. I’m not sure if I will (or if I can), I feel a bit guilty for getting the pirated version of this game (shhh….) 😛 The worst part for me is the movie for each character story. I was hoping to get the same beatiful movie as the intro played before the game but instead it’s just plain anime, so not cool.
As closure, I would say this is a fun game. Great alternative if you want a fighting game in your PC. Who knows, it might help you control yourself when you feel like beating up someone 😛 hehe
