Street Fighter IV review, another awesome Playstation 3 title!
A lot of people have been talking to me about Street Fighter 4. They kept asking me if I was going to buy it and I was thinking about it for a while, but then I decided to wait.
BUY STREET FIGHTER IV-PS3 -
BUY STREET FIGHTER IV-360 -
The reason for waiting was because they never gave us a demo, so all that we have to go from is trailers, screenshots, and written articles trying to describe what the new Street Fighter really is all about. Without the hands on aspect of it, I think Capcom made a big mistake there. Even if they gave us a very limited demo like we got for Killzone 2, I think that would have sealed the deal for all of those people who are still on the fence about buying it. I think that Capcom is going to do well anyway just because Street Fighter is a classic and everyone used to play it back in the day.
Two days after Soul Calibur IV came out, I went and bought it at Best Buy. Even though Soul Calibur IV is a great game, I personally didn't get a whole lot of use out of it. That is the reason I'm so hesitant on buying Street Fighter IV. I think I will use it every day for about a month and then lose interest in it and it will just sit in the case on my desk for months until I take it out for a day or two and put it back again.
One more thing I'm worried about is the online play. Street Fighter and Soul Calibur are very closely related games and the whole concept is pretty much exactly the same. So with what people are doing on Soul Calibur IV online, what is going to stop them from doing the same thing on Street Fighter IV? It's fun for a while until you play someone who just does the same move over and over and over again. Even if you can block or counter it and fight back, it's just not fun. Or when someone just mashes buttons and ends up winning somehow, that's no fun either. I can deal with these things, but when every other person you play against does one of these two things, it gets to be more an aggravation than a game to sit down and kick some butt on.
In my opinion, games like this you're either having fun or just getting mad. Even when you're playing someone in the same room as you, the person that's winning is always happy and laughing, but when you're the one losing it just isn't a whole lot of fun. That's my take on it anyway and I'm not saying not to buy Street Fighter 4. I'm just giving you my opinions on what I think is going to happen with this game.
