Super Street Fighter 4 !

Not even a year since the release of Street Fighter 4, Capcom have already followed up with the sequel; Super Street Fighter 4. This fast-tracked release may come as a surprise to some, but veterans will know it's a time-honoured Capcom tradition, especially harking back to Street Fighter 2 and its myriad versions. So why bring out a sequel so soon after the initial release?

You need only play the new version to get the answer. Super Street Fighter 4 has improved upon the original in every way, which is quite a compliment considering the original is considered a near perfect Beat Em Up. Most importantly, the sequel brings an additional 10 new fighters to the competition, bringing the tally to a whopping 35 characters. The slim roster was a sore point for many when considering the original, but that has been fixed with a great range of fighters.

Of the 10 new combatants, 2 are completely new while the other 8 have featured in past Capcom titles. Juri and Hakan are the new fighters for Super Street Fighter 4, and offer a diverse style of play. The sadistic yet seductive Juri, a Tae Kwon Do master, offers a speedy and combo-heavy approach. Hakan, conversely, is a comedic Turkish oil wrestler, specialising in grapples and heavy hitting in the same vein as Zangief. The rest of the newcomers include fan favourites Ibuki, Cody and Dudley.

However, new fighters isn't the only thing Super Street Fighter 4 brings to the table. The online mode has been augmented dramatically, featuring the 'endless battle' mode allowing friends to have continuous battles, along with replay modes and clearer layouts. The nostalgic bonus rounds from past entries make a return, and a range of new stages have been included for good measure.

Understandably, some may think it cheeky to bring out a sequel less than a year since the original and expect players to shell out again. Fear not though, Super Street Fighter 4 comes at a reduced price, and is definitely worth the purchase. The range of new fighters bring a whole new dynamic to the gameplay, and all other features have been improved dramatically. This is the icing on the cake of one of the best fighters in years, and Capcom are fully justified with this amazing offering.
