Well what can I say ... I spent some time on this game, and I'm pretty sure that is one of the best fighting games of all time.

Easily among the best fighting games, if not the best fighting game available on PC.
A large roster of characters will ensure you will find plenty of characters that fit your tastes, yet the game manages to remain fundamentally balanced, which is a fantastic accomplishment.
The artstyle is something controversial as it deviates from the previous titles in the franchise quite alot, but tends to grow on you.

Let me also note that this is an excellent port and is quite optimized for running on a PC, it even has support for pretty much any input method: From keyboard to gamepads and fightsticks. My only complaint is that it uses GFWL. With that said, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
Luckily, Super Street Fighter IV will be making the switch to Steamworks for online play when Ultra Street Fighter IV comes out as either a digital upgrade or standalone game (hopefully) somewhere in the first half of 2014. EDIT: Release date for PC has been confirmed somewhere in August, which is well past the date GFWL will shut down. Unfortunately I have no idea if this means the game will be without online play for a month or not, I sure hope not.

A great place to start if you're looking for a way to get into the genre, although as with any fighting game, Super Street Fighter IV AE requires dedication to become good at. Don't let that scare you off though, try to meet some people through either Steam groups or online play or even recruit some friends and I'm sure you'll have a blast learning and playing this game if you really wish to get into fighting games.

The best fighting game in the last few years, it offers an addictive and engrossing experience. To master each character you will need to spend some time tinkering with each moveset, but once that character clicks in your mind (and fingers :D) it is a blast.

If you decide to go online after practising with your favourite chars, you will find a good range of fighters available in ranked and/or endless lobbies. My favourite way of playing online is to activate in single player the 'fighter request' option, so you can practice with any character against the cpu, honing your skills while you 'receive' requests to fight some real people.

Last but not least, I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone interested in the game to buy a fighting stick, it is essential to master the game. I know they are expensive, but nowadays there is a good range of sticks under 100€ that will allow you to feel sharper and precise controls compared to what you can do with a gamepad.

If you are commited to spend some hours with the game, you will experience one of the best fighters ever.

Title: Super Street Fighter® IV Arcade Edition makes for a very intriguing title. It contains one of those fancy circle Rs which probably stand for something legal, so you don't have to worry about any legal issues when you fire it up. Title has you covered.
This game is also rather super, as every single character without exception has a super move that can be activated when you have a full super meter. Each character also has Ultra combos, although the title will not reflect that until an upcoming change in 2014.
Street Fighter IV is the defining Street Fighter of this generation, with over four street fighters to street fight as. Furthermore, this is the arcade edition. Arcades are known for many things, but I don't actually know what any of those are. I remember that I never wanted to play in them that much because I'd have to pay every time I wanted to try again, which would be extremely frequent. I'm terrible at this. Fortunately, you do not have to buy a respawn DLC, even though this is the Arcade Edition.

Graphics: The game comes with graphics, many of which are even 3d. The camera does fancy spinning flying things when you do ultra combos, and while that may not be related to graphics, I feel that is a very huge selling point as there is no better way to emphasize just how hard you punched that little casual in his filthy jaw. There are also fancy effects you can put on the characters that make a subtle but noticeable difference I can't put my finger on because my monitor does not have a touch screen.
At any rate, the answer to "Does Super Street Fighter® IV Arcade Edition have graphics?" would be a resounding "Yes!"

Gameplay: As you might expect, Super Street Fighter® IV Arcade Edition does indeed have gameplay. As games go, I would call it very good gameplay. Combos are hard as verdammt to pull off and I have yet to actually do one in a real match, although I most definitely can show that training dummy (His name is Dan :) who is the boss of 10 hit combos by nailing him in the face with one. Inputs are pretty typical for fighter games, with the stick being used to make complicated motions really fast and my xbox controller probably isn't the best for this. If you like your circles being quartered forwards, then Super Street Fighter® IV Arcade Edition is for you.
As mentioned previously, it does have more than four characters, and some would even go as far as to say maybe more than twenty. Some people would say more than forty, but I am not positive that they are very proficient at counting.
Super Street Fighter® IV Arcade Edition also comes with the internet! The internet is very well beloved by many people, and in Super Street Fighter® IV Arcade Edition, the internet is as fast and fluid as ever. There is very little lag and I often feel like I am losing to a real person sitting right next to me! I once even tried to unplug their controller, but ended up getting my power cable instead because they weren't actually next to me. It just FELT like they were, because the entcode* is so good.

Sound: The characters are voiced and say things like "I will win" or "You will lose". They also deliver classic lines like "Do you want to take this outside... ON THE STREET?!" punches and kicks also sound very much like punches and kicks, although they may arguably sound more like someone clubbing a baby seal. I am rather fond of the neat "whump" noise it makes when a hit connects.
Characters can also be made to speak in Japanese instead, because dubs are ABSOLUTELY terrible in anything where they should be speaking in Japanese. Juri even laughs better in Japanese. Do her backwards grab and tell me I'm wrong.



Title: 6/10 + 2 for legal coverage and impending updates to address present concerns (Is not marked as Ultra)
Graphics: 8/10 + 1 for subtle touch screen effects (I would rank it a bit higher but Juri's neck looks weird. Tell me I'm wrong.)
Gameplay: 8/9
Sound: 5/10 + 6 for being able to listen in authentic Japanese with real and true-to-life subtitles.
__________
Overall: 9/9.75 I just averaged all the scores and the maximum points for each category and got this, I don't really know if it's accurate or not.


*Haha, I meant to type netcode. "Don't be so hasty to point out typos, you stupid hobbit!"- a real ent playing Super Street Fighter® IV Arcade Edition

Fantastico:
+ mmmm that trademark SF neutral game
+ well balanced and features plenty of characters
+ solid netplay
+ accessible yet deep

Lame:
- gotta use GFWL, which is lame
- netplay is only solid, so your links won't always be crispy
- oh god vortex

Conclusion: Get hype USFIV delayed wakeup

-----
But yeah, SSFIV:AE's great. I recommend it to pretty much anyone. If you're new to the fighting game genre, don't be afraid. AE is probably the best modern fighter to start with if you want to learn how to fighting. AE is not terribly complex, and there are plenty of resources out there to help you learn how to play. Buy this game when it's cheap so that you can get ready for USFIV.

Or you could just wait for USFIV. It's probably cheaper if you buy this discounted and buy the USFIV upgrade though.
