Compared to the previous installments, this game has definitely improved both graphically and musically. And the gameplay has changed a little here: the number of fighters has significantly increased (there are now over 30 of them), each fighter now has 3 fighting styles, it is now possible to fight simultaneously with 2 or 3 opponents, and new game modes have been added. In addition, so that you do not get bored, the download screens will now show beautiful pictures of the various fighters in the game.
In terms of the plot, nothing has changed much (as they say, the urine of everyone who climbs), although here the familiar M. Bison has already been set as the main villain. Also, the system of dialogues between battles has been left.
Speaking of game modes, it is worth noting that many of them are initially closed and will open as the game progresses. Of these, the "World Tour" mode is very interesting (by the way, it is open from the very beginning). There you will need to choose a character, and then travel around the map, fight with different opponents, gain experience and levels (just like in an RPG), get new abilities and skills. And at the very end you will have to fight the great Bison: first with his guards (Juni and Juli), and then with him.
Versions of the game for portable consoles (GBA and PSP) are generally similar to the versions for conventional consoles, although they have some differences. For example, several new fighters were added there: in the GBA version - Yun, Maki, Eagle, in the PSP version - the same three plus Ingrid.
What else can I say? This is simply one of the best 2D fighting games in the Street Fighter series! If you have not played this game, and also like good and high-quality fighting games, then you simply should not leave this game without attention!
