Booting into a fresh install of Street Fighter 5 in 2022 is a nightmare

The game may have aged well – very well, in fact – but starting up a fresh version of Capcom’s esteemed fighter is a drag. Video games are a great medium because they regularly find new ways to amaze and impress by delivering worlds and experiences you could’ve never imagined. And one thing I could never have imagined is the process of launching into Street Fighter 5 as a new player. What a nightmare! I’m not talking about getting battered online by people who then send you messages telling you to ‘learn 2 block’; I’m talking about the simple process of booting…

Capcom has to get Street Fighter 6 right, and not just for the sake of the series’ 35th anniversary

Can Capcom deliver with its next Street Fighter game and get a whole new generation into fighting? We sure hope so. This year, Street Fighter turns 35 years old. Yes, it’s been that long since the first game showed up in arcades, revolutionizing the concept of fighting games with, er… two playable characters and massive pressure-sensitive buttons that mashed your clenched fist into mincemeat as you had to hammer them ridiculously hard to get heavy attacks. Yeah. That’s not what the series is remembered for at all. The series is really remembered for Street Fighter 2, of course. In fact,…

Street Fighter 5’s new content looks great – but all I really want is a new generation

Street Fighter 5 is getting better all the time. But after years of ups and downs, what I’m really after is Street Fighter 6. Respect to the Street Fighter 5 team. They’ve stuck with it. When I reviewed the game back in 2016, I described it as an excellent game with a content problem. Sherif was less charitable, brutally describing its launch package as a “fuck you to casual players”. He wasn’t wrong. But Capcom has worked bloody hard, and the end result is that Street Fighter 5 is one of the best and most content-rich fighters on the market….
