Super Street Fighter IV is, of course, an reboot of last year's massively popular new entry to the Street Fighter franchise, which, amongst other updates, adds ten new characters to the roster. The extra fighters include a brand new face, Juri, a Taekwondo fighter from South Korea who works for Seth's S.I.N. organisation, as well as a list of old favourites: Dee Jay and T.Hawk (from Super Street Fighter II); Dudley, Makoto and Ibuki (from Street Fighter III); Guy and Cody (from Final Fight); and Adon (from the original Street Fighter).
In addition to these new fighters, a lot of tweaking has been going on, with the aim of making battles more fun and accessible. All the characters have had their combat analysed and rebalanced and then been given a new, additional, Ultra combo move.
There's also some new modes to get stuck into, for example, Endless Battle which pits you against a neverending, rotating group of players and Team Battle in which up to eight players scrap in a series of elimination matches, as well as a Replay Channel in which you can view and save replays of matches from around the world.
I've always been cynical about the Super versions of Street Fighter games, as well as any other similar cash ins on popular IP but I have to admit, there is a lot here for £14.99, particularly if you don't have the original version.
