It figures, that with the huge selection of games that movie producers have at their disposals that they'd choose the one with the worst plot. Street Fighter is an amazing game series and iconic for a number of reasons. One of those reasons is not its plot. It doesn't have one. Even the game devs seem confused on character motivations.
Fallout, Final Fantasy, Baldur's Gate, Vampire: The Masquerade, Jade Empire... hell, they could probably do a decent movie working with The Elder Scrolls and yet they choose Street Fighter? AGAIN!? I could list twenty game series off the top of my head that would have been much easier to translate into good film and these people who get paid to do it can't?
Well, the first review are in and as expected - they're bad. Abysmal is probably a better term to use. I just don't understand what they were thinking, perhaps you do? I figure they planned to cash in on SF4's success but will it work? Are there really that many gamers going to flock to the theaters? I don't advocate pirating but if there ever was a time for it, this would be it. Because if there's one demographic of theater goers who are more prone to pirating - wouldn't it be core gamers? Maybe not but it's something to consider. Anyways, I doubt anybody will ever read this but here's my thoughts on the subject. Enjoy!
