Street Fighter V is a fighting video game developed by Dimps and Capcom and published by Capcom for PlayStation 4 and PC. The game was released worldwide on February 16, 2016.
It is the 5th main installment of the Street Fighter series.
Why It Sucks
- The first time that a Street Fighter game does not feature an arcade mode.
- At launch, the game felt like it was a demo.
- A large amount of content was intentionally removed so it could be charged as DLC some of which can still be found in the disc. On-Disc DLC.
- Small roster of characters to chose from.
- Lots of rage quitters do not get any punishment from quitting an online match.
- Every character story mode can be completed within a few hours.
- Capcom dared to charge full price at launch despite the game being obviously unfinished and lacking in content.
- Character story mode cutscenes look amateurish.
- Online mode was broken at launch
- The in-game store was not available at launch.
- Doesn't have player vs. CPU in versus mode.
- Capcom openly admitted they rushed the game and would release it despite it being unfinished.
- The core fighting mechanics are fantastic.
- The graphics and in-game art style is beautiful
- Some of the DLC can be unlocked by going to the in-game shop using in-game currency
- The Collector's Edition has a well-detailed 10" inch Ryu figurine, a 48p art book, DLC cards for extra goodies.
The PlayStation 4 Version received generally favourable reviews from critics giving it a score of 77 out of 100. As for the PC Version, it received mixed reviews also from critics. Both of which were according to review aggregator website Metacritic. While it did so, it was critically panned by fans of the series due to the lack of single player content. Even though the fighting mechanics are praised, fans are still bitter about how lacking the game is and how obvious it was that Capcom was milking the game by removing content then putting it as DLC. (This is the reason why the User Score for this game was a 3.5/10 with the number of negative user reviews being 789) The game only sold 1.5 million units worldwide, making this entry as the worst selling game in the series.
SomecallmeJohnny complimented the fighting mechanics, but criticized for lack of single player content. Saying that moving Street Fighter IV to Street Fighter V is like moving from a pen house to a small condo that is still under construction. He recommended Ultra Street Fighter IV over Street Fighter V because it contains more content at a cheaper price than Street Fighter V.
