Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is simply a fantastic fighter. Street Fighter V featured outstanding fighting mechanics upon its original release, but felt like a bare bones husk of a game that was rushed out the door incomplete to capitalize on the eSports trend. Street Fighter V Arcade Edition fills in the negative space and delivers the fighting game experience it should have been in the first place.

When Street Fighter V originally released in the spring of 2016 it quite literally broke my heart as a fan of the series and of fighting games. It was an incomplete, half arsed insult to the series that had been pushed to market way before it was ready...

YouTube Embedded video Hands in the air time: we let Street Fighter 5 off lightly when it arrived back in 2016. Capcom talked a big talk about post-release content, but only half of those promised extras arrived and single player gamers felt left out...

The first rule of fighting games is to make sure your fundamentals are rock solid. If the foundation of your play isn't on point, you'll never be considered a viable competitor. The whiffed launch of Street Fighter V showed that this mantra is as...

It's easy to cynically dismiss this much-needed rebirth as too little, too late. But doing so does a disservice to the fantastic fighting game Street Fighter 5 has become. Sure, Street Fighter 5 was a disaster at launch. But now, buoyed by Arcade Edition, it's one of the best fighting games around, if not the very best. Street Fighter 5 has always had brilliant combat. Now it's got the video game to do it justice.

When I was banging this review around in my head, I felt like I was evaluating two different things: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition the core game and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition the product.The core game of Street Fighter V started life off...

D'un point de vue graphique, nous retrouvons cet aspect particulier s'inspirant grandement du quatrième opus. Depuis le temps, le studio de développement a bien travaillé en peaufinant les arrière-plans/les décors. Et pour cause, ces derniers sont plus...

L'inizio della terza stagione (finalmente abbiamo Sakura!) e la Arcade Edition segnano il definitivo arrivo di Street Fighter V nell'olimpo dei picchiaduro attuali. Un sistema di combattimento e un gameplay ben rodati vengono finalmente impreziositi da...

J'adore Street Fighter V, c'est un fait. Mais c'est un jeu qui m'a également frustré depuis sa sortie, que ce soit avec son matchmaking raté, son contenu solo vraiment pauvre. Aujourd'hui, Street Fighter V est peut-être enfin le jeu que l'on aurait du...
