But even if you don't know your Gouken from your Gouki, Street Fighter IV may still be a great game for you. For a more in-depth look to help your decision-making abilities come to a decision, be sure to check out our extensive video preview:

If you're still not sure after that, then ask yourself this: In what other game do you get to powerbomb a Genoese fortune-teller with a polar-bear-wrestling Russian ironman? That's right, you can't think of any others, because there totally aren't any. QED.

This is the first fight game that I've been looking forward to since.. Teken 3 I think :D Looks amazing, and since IGN and others have given it great reviews I guess it lives up to the hype :) Just hope all my friends get it so we can lock ourself in someones basement for a few weeks ;) Oh and to all you guys complaining about the 17,th.. In Sweden it's not until the 20,th :( so.. hush!!

Man I'm super psyched for this game. Thanks for the video, certainly were some things in there I wasn't aware of, who ever was doing voice-over could've been more enthusiastic though.

They better have tournamnet mode up to 64 bracket, including losers brackets online/offline.. Though of course you probably won't be able to complete an entire tournament in a sitting most likely, BUT that can be easily fixed with letting them last 24 hours or more giving a window of opertunity for people to play online.. ANd if they don't show up after a certain time for a match they forfiet the game.. 64 may be a bit much but 32 player would be good too.. I just HOPE FOR ONCE THEY HAVE A GOOD tournament.. I don't understand why they took the tournament mode out of every game after Super Street Fighter 2: New challengers... 16 bracket, coul dhave human or cpus play.. Could watch the fights for cpu vs cpu or skip it, there were actually LOSERS brackets, meaning if you lost the first match you wouldn't be eliminated you fought 1 or 2 other matches for placement.

SF II was superb back then and SF4 seems to be as much exciting! No.1 on my must-have list. It looks incredible and I bet the fighting system works perfectly. CAPCOM did it again! gr8 job ;)

ive preorderd the game and cant wait to start playing it. I want to challenge people from all over the world, as much as i loved every other street fighter incarnation, this will be the first time for me to ever play a SF online. I always played against my friends on console but since university started we are living far away from each other.So now is the perfect chance to play against them and against the rest of the world. Cant wait for the leaderboard setup as well. This is gonna be the best game of 2009 for me, easily the best.

I played it around 15 times at the arcades in Australia, i was good in the old days but i got my ass kicked by 14 yo kid. I personally give street fighter IV (arcade) 9.5 out of 10

I may have been really young when Street Fighter II came out, but I know just how great this game was/is. I really cannot wait for this!

Man I was only 4 when Street Fighter II came out, and to see it evolve after all these years, I'm glad to have own the SCE for Sega, and play the arcade version when I was a little one.
