Super Street Fighter IV

Probably the only people who were disappointed with Super Street Fighter IV were the ones who rushed out to buy the game last year. Not only did 2010's SSF IV update include 10 additional characters, including the Taekwondo fighter Juri and the Turkish oil wrestler Hakan, the controversial Super and Ultra combos made a comeback, forcing players to change up their strategies. The story follows the fighting-game-series canon: each character has his own personal motivations for wanting to fight his way to the top, whether for love, pride or respect. What this means for game play is that you've got more characters with different fighting styles to play around with. In SSF IV, each round is exquisitely rendered in a hybrid 2-D/3-D animation.
