This does a good job of bringing the deep arcade-style fighting game to mobile devices, but it also brings the game's complex difficulty with it. Like the console versions of this brawler, Street Fighter IV: Championship Edition is a deep arcade-style fighting game that has a ton of options. Besides numerous characters, each of whom have their own special moves, this game also has numerous ways to play that include solo fights and online battles. It also manages to bring this series' complex controls to mobile devices, courtesy of persistent on-screen buttons that are as responsive as the ones on a controller. But this is also where this game might lose some people. Arcade-y as they may be, the Street Fighter games have long had a serious streak to them, and the controls have numerous multibutton combos, which may be overwhelming for those new to this series or this genre. And that goes double if you dare to play this online. It's also got some rather irritating and cheesy music that you annoyingly can't turn down or off. Still, if you're a fan of the series who wants to take your fisticuffs on the road, Street Fighter IV: Championship Edition is as solid as a shot to the chin and a quick jab to the gut.
