Street Fighter V
Top Critic Average
Street Fighter V legt den bisher schlechtesten Launch des Jahres hin und sollte auch in der aktuellen Fassung eher ausgelassen werden. Hardcore Fans können den Titel zwar noch als gutes Trainingslager bzw. verlängerte Beta benutzen, aber für den Rest heißt es wohl noch bis März bzw. Juni zu warten, bis man ein vollwertiges Spiel mit ausreichend Inhalt für sein Geld bekommt.

Despite its problems with content, Street Fighter V is the most polished and accessible entry in the franchise.

In its current state, Street Fighter V offers brilliant core gameplay and presentation coupled with patchy amounts of content.
There's enough online action and learnable stuff here to make Street Fighter V a decent purchase, but you can't sit there and tell me that Capcom couldn't have delayed this until everything was ready in June and benefitted for the greater because of it. There's just no way.
Street Fighter V feels like a great game in the making - literally, in the making. The unfinished story mode that feels cheaply tacked together and the distinct lack of single-player focus makes me think that Capcom is hoping that players will forgive the day-one let downs by throwing updates at the game post-release.
Despite a rocky launch and poor story mode, Street Fighter V has shown once again why Capcom's franchise reigns supreme. The best fighting mechanics to date are sure to keep fans coming back for years.
If Street Fighter IV were to be described as looking to the past to understand what made the series so great, Street Fighter V could be described as looking to the future to ensure it stays on top for the years to come, welcoming all the new comers along the way.
Those interested in Street Fighter 5 should view their purchase as a season pass. At launch, there's the bare minimum amount of content included to enable players to get used to the game's fighting systems, but over the coming months it will grow in features and content to make it a better, more rounded experience, for free
A good follow-up to one of the best fighters in recent memory, with a cast of solid old and new characters, tainted only by being short on content. As new characters and stages are obtainable via in-game currency, it's up to the player whether they want to start slow or wait until the content is there.

Street Fighter V is incredibly accessible, meaning that any player can hop on, get to grips with the controls, and have a great time. Competitive and casual players alike will find a home in Street Fighter V's diverse game modes and multiplayer matches. It's been a while coming, but Capcom's brilliant fighting series has finally returned.
