Ultra Street Fighter IV is, for a casual player, the best Street Fighter IV, thanks to a large roster of well-balanced fighters.

And, if you can play on a TV or in a suitably spacious desk area, Street Fighter is really meant to be shared in person. The online modes are a fine way to practice, but it’s way more fun if you can see your friends’ salty tears in person (or in my case, so they can see mine). Until the next Street Fighter, USFIV is my default answer when someone asks, “Want to play something?”

Fans will wisely jump on this and skeptics will quickly grow to appreciate the value of this meaty upgrade. If you’ve somehow managed to stay away from the phenomenon this entire time, then Ultra Street Fighter IV is the perfect gateway to becoming a World Warrior.

Trials aside, Ultra Street Fighter IV is a great expansion that smartly builds upon the core game. With all of its tweaks, new mechanics, and extra game modes, Ultra will definitely appeal to the diehard Street Fighter IV fans who still remember the tyranny of vanilla Sagat.

The only thing that holds this sequel back is the sense that it was made on a fairly tight budget. It's the little things, like the meagre choice of "new" characters and the way that some of the new Ultra animations lack the dramatic flair of their predecessors.

By IGN on 90

Ultra Street Fighter 4 takes an already incredible, content-rich fighting game, and builds upon it in ways that fighting enthusiasts can get lost in and casual fans can enjoy. Every addition and refinement, both big and small, works.

For casual players or newcomers, Ultra Street Fighter IV is the same thrilling, deep, and accessible fighting game it always has been. And with the retail release featuring all previously released costume DLC content, it's a game that every Xbox 360, PS3 or PC owner should have in their collection.

By USGamer on 80

Ultra Street Fighter IV continues Capcom's continuing evolution of the Street Fighter IV series. Five new characters join the roster, though four are from Street Fighter x Tekken and one was created using animations from an existing character.

Street Fighter IV was a superlative experience even before today, but Ultra Street Fighter IV, with its well devised additions, has added the bacon to what was already a tasty burger - you don’t know that Street Fighter IV needs these mechanics until you’ve tasted it with them.
