Video Game Review - Street Fighter 4
Street Fighter 4
This game is basically a really amazing looking street fighter 2 with a couple of characters and super moves from the street fighter alpha games. It is your basic fighter with all the basic moves and buttons for punching, kicking, jumping, blocking. The graphics are really nice and remind me of a 3D cartoon. They are really detailed and its nice to see all of your favorite fighters from the past still going strong. Especially my fave, Cammy.
Background stages are very nicely animated especially a boat where everytime you slam someone to the ground it makes waves and the boat moves.
Characters all speak in decent sounding english but doing some of the moves are very difficult and can sometimes not register due to the xbox controller not having a real good control pad.
Just like almost all other fighters, the final boss is a controller throwing scream inducing time. One of those final bosses where you'd have to be blessed by baby jesus to get one decent punch in on him.
All in all i like this game and was glad i got it, I do have a lot of practicing to do but its nice to see that Street Fighter is still going strong and great...unlike some other franchises ::cough cough mortal kombat cough cough:::
