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. Keep in mind you won't be able to play the game for some time because of this. I'll repeat, KEEP THAT IN MIND
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.
