Storyline

Street Fighter IV takes place several months after the events of Street Fighter II (thus is chronologically set between Street Fighter II and III). After M.Bison's survival from his encounter with Akuma, the S.I.N. corporation organized another fighting tournament in order to draw out the most powerful fighters on Earth in order to compile their fighting data for nefarious purposes.

Trivia

Art director and character designer Daigo Ikeno, who previously worked on Street Fighter III 3rd Strike, opted for non-photo-realistic rendering to give them a hand-drawn look, with visual effects accented in calligraphic strokes, ink smudges and ink sprays during the fights. See more »

Goofs

In the Street Fighter IV Trailer with Chun-Li explaining the storyline we see Chun-Li and a group of cooks taking a group photo together. The camera used has an LCD but the LCD on Digital Cameras hasn't been introduced in 1993/1994 (the date of Street fighter 2 and 4) it was introduced in 1995. See more »

It's Street Fighter. You gotta love it.
27 February 2009 | by mechg2994See all my reviews

How long has it been to wait for a Street Fighter sequel? Well we got our prayers answered. However Street Fighter IV is just a prequel to SF2 and SF3 which some fans didn't hope to expect. Many hated this when they first saw the gameplay, but in the final product, it was outstanding.

First off the graphics will just blow your mind. Very artistic. All original 12 fighters return as well as new ones and from SSF2 and SFA.

The gameplay combined elements of SF2, SFA, & SF3 except introduction to the focus attacks and ultra moves. The removal of parrying from SF3 was a disappointment.

My only complaint is the A.I. like when you face the SFIV boss, Seth. Yeah he's easy in the first round, but when it comes to the second round he will get your @$$ handed to you. Well he's the boss, and bosses are usually cheap.

You might want to change the language to Japanese. The English dub sucks as usual.

Anyways SFIV brings the series to its roots and brings pros and casual players to play together.

All I gotta say is: It's Street Fighter who wouldn't like one game (Except the SFEX series and the game based on the *beep* 1994 movie).

9.5/10
