DO NOT BUY THIS GAME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whist I recommend the gameplay it's self, I do not recommend buying this title, as it's broken.
I have made a ticket asking Steam to Put a warning up so people do not buy this version...
like me...and waste good money that could be spent on a working Beat Em Up.
The game it's self is marvelous! It's pure greatness, as you'd expect from SF!....But....
1) The game doesn't work unless you rename a file in the game directory (The fix is at the end of my review)
2 ) Once you've sorted that and launch the game...you can play fine....but.you are unable to save any progress, because Games for Windows Live is dead. So any characters you unlock are lost...
I am so dissapointed by this purchase. I really was looking forward to spending a few nights unlocking content, but not like this...
One can only hope Steam do something to fix this fiasco =(
Personal rating: Great game, crappy services embedded into it ruining it
Percent Rating: 95% if it worked properly, but as it stands 5%....
The fix to make the game launch below...
1) Go to the game folder C:\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\Street Fighter IV
2) Find the file in that folder StreetFighterIV.exe.cfg
3) Change it's name toStreetFighterIV.exe.cfg.BAK
4) Then try to launch as normal, it should work.
5) If that doesn't work, install GFWL from the exe in that same folder and try again.
6) Enjoy your game till you realise you can't save progress
7) OPTIONAL STEP: Curse profusely at the fact you spent good money on a broken game...:
