Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (12 ):

Super Street Fighter IV is a significant upgrade compared to the previous game. The 10 new fighters offer a great balance between speed, agility, and power. The game also adds a handful of challenges that freshens up the single-player and training modes.

But the biggest changes lie in the games online arena, which features a cleaner interface and cuts down on the amount of time players spend waiting to join a match. The new modes, including Endless Battle mode and Replay Channel -- where players record and share fights with friends -- create a more social environment for players and their friends to interact in. And at $20 less than the average new game, it's very tough to pass up.

Online interaction: The game features open voice chat, meaning players may hear others using profanity and discussing inappropriate subjects. There is also potential for the sharing of personal information.
