Capcom’s classic beat-em-up heads to the iPhone, and is surprisingly playable

Street Fighter IV Review

by on April 9, 2010

Street Fighter fans are a hard lot to please, but Capcom’s new version of Street Fighter IV for iPhone seems to have done the trick. While the game is nothing to write home about in terms of graphics or features, the basic gameplay has been ported faithfully, which is really all the fans care about.

And while Street Fighter IV for the iPhone features only eight of the game’s original 19 characters, it is still up there with the likes of GTA: Chinatown Wars, Super Monkey Ball, Final Fantasy and the cream of the gaming crop on Apple’s device.

The real joy here is the fact that the controls have been faithfully recreated for the iPhone’s touchscreen. Sure, it is not quite the same as battering away at a joystick, but providing you don’t have incredibly large fingers you will soon pick up the nuances of the game, using the large on-screen joystick to perform a range of very cool special moves. The four attack buttons are simply punch, kick, special move, and charge attack, while there are two meters at the top of the screen—a “revenge gauge” and a “super combo gauge.”

Bluetooth multiplayer is far and away the coolest mode in the game. After all, Street Fighter was always about battering the hell out of virtual versions of your mates in the arcade.
