Too inappropriate

I remember playing street fighter in the arcade when the content was far more innocent. I find this game to be far too sexually explicit when it comes to the female characters design, when I see the characters Elena and especially poison on the screen I am very offended at the display, it is incredibly awkward and embarrassing to play this for the first time when you are at your parents house.

This title has:

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (4 ):

For those who already own Street Fighter IV or Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, there's some new content here that might be of interest -- including the new characters, environments, and modes -- but it's not like it's an entirely new experience. Those who've never played the 2009 game will no doubt fall for the charm and polish with this "Ultra" version. Along with new fighters like Decapre and Poison, fresh new animation, and better balancing between all the characters, Capcom has added these new modes: Online Training, Fight Request During Offline Training, Offline Battle Log, and an Elimination Mode. Also new is the ability to upload replays via YouTube. Longtime fans might also appreciate the new CGI footage not seen previously. While more evolutionary than revolutionary, this brawler is the definitive version that a serious fighting game fan should own.
