Review: Street Fighter IV The Ties That Bind

streetfighteriva

This is a 65 minute animation that came with the special edition Street Fighter IV game for those who bought it (And those who didn’t can now find it online). I was very excited to hear about a Street Fighter Animation, I remember the Street Fighter 2V which was fantastic and engaging at the same time, the characters in that animation were fantastic. I had very high expectations for this anime and I was sorely disappointed with this animation, if they just wanted to release an animation with this game then they should have really worked hard on it.

First off they jumped right into the story without any character background assuming you know what the hell is going on. I do have a really good idea but a refresher would be nice, and on another note does Ryu have to be tormented right away. They could have done a better job concentrating on specific characters and developing them over the 65 minute period instead of trying to introduce so many characters. It didn’t connect so well and Ryu has another goal in mind, but the story takes another track which ends up too short and you are left at the end with too many questions, not enough to want more but annoyed you even watched. Also the dubbing of the animation was horrible, so with no feeling in any of the voices.

Street Fighter IV Reviewed!

Who isn’t a fan of Street Fighter! I love those games and I only watched the Anime series because of those games. Many games spawned after Street Fighter but none could copy it. This review by wired magazine is getting me excited, simply enough the graphics are amazing the gameplay is fantastic, they have simplified it just like the old days and there are the complex moves so you can annihilate people once you get the combination going you are unstoppable.

It will be on sale in Rihab for around 25 KD to 35 KD, depending on the regular or special edition.
