This is hands down the best Street Fighter game ever made, and the sixth installment features an abundance of intense combat.
This side-scrolling beat ’em up series has been going strong for 35 years with around 50 million copies sold.
Capcom has taken a three-pronged approach, reminiscent of Call of Duty, in updating this gaming classic, and the result is a breath of fresh air.
Powered by the impressive-looking Re Engine, this next-gen fighting game provides a big classic mode right from the bat for your own enjoyment.
In addition to the online-focused fight hub and fully fledged open world story mode, the game also features the ability to challenge anyone you see on the street to a fight.
Capcom has provided a truly comprehensive video game loaded with content, seemingly leaving no stone unturned.
With the introduction of Fighting Ground, the volume of the original Street Fighter gameplay mode was turned up to 11.
Plus, I liked the fact that, once night fell, gangs roaming the streets may appear out of nowhere and catch you, forcing you to fight even if you weren’t prepared.
While the story and character dialogue can be strange at times, the game’s impressive scale becomes clear when you explore its many globe sections and feel the constant tension it generates.
There’s also a sizable personalization option for making your own unique SF avatar, complete with crazy headgear, outfits, and tattoos.
The goal of Fight Hub is to provide a virtual gathering place where gamers can organise and hold tournaments for competitive gaming.
The Game Centre features a rotating selection of some of Capcom’s classic video games, or you can compete against other players in Ranked, Casual, or Extreme Battle cabinets.
A variety of things can be purchased at the center’s Goods Shop, and the Event Counter allows visitors to sign up for online contests.
It’s all about making new friends from all around the world in a central Street Fighter area stocked with everything you need to enjoy the beat-em-up genre.
It’s great that fan favourites like Ryu, Ken, and Zangief are back, and that the game also looks forward by introducing a new, diverse cast of characters like Lily, Manon, and JP.
Each character has a solid framework provided by the Tutorials, Character Guides, and Combo Trials, which can be used by both newcomers and seasoned players alike.
