Capcom has released the highly anticipated Street Fighter IV for the iPhone and iPod touch. First announced last month, Street Fighter IV brings the popular console game to the iPhone and iPod touch with a user interface specifically redesigned for the touchscreen and the same visual style and artwork found in the current generation console game. Eight classic characters are available in the game, including Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, Able, Blanka, M. Bison, Dhalsim, Guile and Ken and the game provides seven different playing environments. Familiar moves such as Unique Attacks, Special Moves, Focus Attacks, Super Combos and Ultra Combos are all present, and the game provides a “Dojo” mode to introduce new players to the game’s moves and features. In addition to the standard single-player mode, players can choose to compete against other iPhone and iPod touch users over Bluetooth in a two-player head-to-head mode. Street Fighter IV is available on the App Store for $10.

Great Game… probably the best fighting game. But, to be honest it’s just a teaser, unless they add more characters, and levels. The in-game movies are okay.

It’s certainly not a complete port by any stretch of the imagination, and you’re simply not going to increase your skills in the real game with this app.  But if you love Street Fighter & just want to have fun on the go, this version is still a lot of fun.  At $10 it’s still a bit overpriced, but Capcom invariably adds new content to it’s games & apps come down in price all the time after the initial release anyway.

If you’re a SF fan who wishes they could be home playing, it’s worth the $10.  Anyone else, probably better to wait for it to hit $5.
