A recent addition to the App Store was Street Fighter IV from Capcom for a jaw dropping $9.99 and the first thing you say to yourself is “what the?!“. Let me tell you something unless you had been playing the older versions and are a die hard fan you won’t love this at first. On my first time playing Street Fighter, I had a butt whopping from the CPU, but I enjoyed every second of it.

– Intense Game play, just like how it was at the arcade
– Controls haven’t really changed
– Touch screen joystick is very reliable unlike many other games I had played
– Many different types of game modes
– MULTIPLAYER OMGGG ← Makes the game a whole lot more fun when pwning friends
– Your Specials are like a mini trailer

– Sometimes the game gets very repetitive
– Graphics could be improved
– There needs to be a Quick Play Mode

OpenFeint should included to allow leaderboards and a larger online game play. I would say if you are a fan of the Street Fighter saga then you should buy this app. It will remind you of the arcade days or if you have money to blow, splurge and buy this. If not, I would say keep your money and buy a cheaper game to keep you busy.
