Ultra Street Fighter IV for PlayStation 4 will be a familiar experience to fans of Capcom's storied fighting franchise. It doesn't add new characters, stages, modes, or features but instead simply gives players pretty much everything related to previous versions of the game on other systems -- and at a pretty good price. For $24.99 you'll get the base game plus all downloadable content released for earlier editions, all running at a higher resolution and at 60 frames per second. It sounds like a pretty good deal for the latest edition of perhaps the most popular of all modern fighting games.

But Ultra Street Fighter IV on PlayStation 4 has been plagued by technical problems. Some players have complained of visual hitches and input lag -- big issues for a game that's all about timing. Multiple updates correcting these problems were released in the weeks following launch, yet some players continue to cite issues as of this review. But not everyone is running into or reporting problems, which means the experience may be different for each player -- or even for players of varying skills who demand and expect different degrees of performance. Either way, there's not a lot here for anyone who's already played the game on another platform -- something to keep in mind before downloading.
