Street Fighter IV was pretty much the fighting game of last year, sweeping the floor with classic gameplay, some new tactical additions and gorgeous visuals. Now, of course, in true Capcom fashion, there's a Super version out there, offering fans the definitive experience with and bunch of new and returning characters from the series' other instalments.
You can currently pick up SSFIV for just £16.85 from ShopTo, saving you a just over £1 on the nearest competitor over at The Hut.
As well as the ten additional new characters, Capcom have popped in a few other extras as well. Now gamers will be able to review past glories thanks to the Replay Channel, the new mode Endless Battle will see you squaring off against rotating groups of up to 8 players much like the new Team Battle which now makes its way online. Series fans will also appreciate the return of the barrel and car smashing mini-games as well as the dialogue-fronted rival battles of the past.
The big differences with SSFIV compared to the original come in the form of these online modes. It's certainly a superior package to the original, and this is an excellent price for it but whether it's right for you will probably depend on how invested you are in the series and how much time you're going to spend online. If you're just a curious fighting fan or simply fancy picking it for the odd bit of fun then I'd actually suggest simply buying the original for half the price, but for fans yet to purchase this and for those of you who make good use of XBL Gold, this is the one you want.
