Ultra Street Fighter 4 is the ultimate fighting game released for Xbox, PlayStation and PC, featuring
forty four playable characters and five new characters not found in previous release of Street Fighter:
Decapre, Elena, Hugo, Poison and Rolento. With various fight modes for the online community it is the
most enhanced fighting game to date. All of the previously released DLC costumes from Super Street Fighter
4 arcade editions are included if the game is purchased as a standalone game.
There are six new stages to fight in and some added new moves unique to this version such as Delayed
Stand Up, Extra EX and Focus attacks. The single player game features an arcade mode, versus, multiplayer battle,
training and challenge. If you want to play with a friend the game caters toward 2 player competitive play online
featuring ranked match, endless battle, team battle and tournament modes. There are replays to check out
of other players and lots of badges and bragging rights to seek out, making the online experience a lot more
fun than its offline counterpart. Finding online players can be a challenge when there is few local players
at a given time. This is an issue which plagues both PC and console versions but is more prominent on the PC.
Ultra Street Fighter 4 offers sharper graphics compared to the console version, but the graphics are
visually smooth and stable whatever the system you are playing on. Overall, this is a solid and well
established fighting game that's easy to pick up and play but deep enough to take many months even
years of practice to master. IGN game score: 9.0
