Street Fight IV worth it? With 75% off?

#1NotQuiteAFreakPosted 10/11/2013 8:56:18 AM
I'm not a ginormous fighter enthusiast, and I've never gotten that much into Street Fighter. But still I do like a good fighter and I've had an itch to add a Fighting game to my Library as of late. So is it worth it?

It's not a terrible fighting game by any means, IMO it trumps all other 2D fighters. It has aspect that make it easier for beginners (shortcuts, comeback factor) and still retains a fairly high skill ceiling (plinking, fadc).
Definitely worth it, although most of the fun is had online as the single player aspect is lacking. Although there is trials which will take you a while to finish.

This guy uploads high level gameplay everyday. Fun to watch even if you can't pull it off.

I'd say trust the opinions of the greater critical/gaming community at large over some bitter troll on a message forum. It's definitely a quality fighter, I own the SFIV and SSFIV - I'd buy Super if you can swing it for the greater number of characters and move additions/rebalances. A very fun game, even just against the AI.

I'd actually wait as it's always been $7.50 on sale every now and then plus there's another SFIV version coming up next year.

Should've bought SSF4, if you didn't. Then you can upgrade to Ultra for $15 when it comes out.

Cheaper than the $40 you'll have to pay for Ultra as a standalone game.

Is it worth your soul for supporting the abomination that is Crapcom?
Or is it worth $5?

They've done a good job with SF4. They've screwed MvC3 and SFxT.

But SF4 is great, and helped explode the genre. Buying SSF4AE and USF4 is worth it. Just don't buy anything else.

Yeah, that's why it's been the biggest game at Evo every year since it's release because it's a terrible fighter.

I hear a lot of people complaining how SF4 was "casualized" after Third Strike but the reality is a lot of people were turned off from SF3 because a lot of the characters and canon were not familiar to old fans, even put alongside the Alpha series.
