After much anticipation, Street Fighter V released on PC and PS4 on February 16, 2016. Many hoped the title would take the long-running series to even greater heights, as it was running on a new engine, introduced new characters, and had an intriguing new V-Gauge system to make fights even more interesting.

A lack of modes that are considered staples for the series and the absence of tools to teach newcomers how to play left all but the most experienced fighting game aficionados out in the cold. This, unfortunately, came to define the discussion surrounding Street Fighter V, and although Capcom introduced offline modes and a suite of training options in the following months, that grey cloud has continued to linger over it. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, however, represents a new beginning. Arriving two years after the game's initial launch, … [Read more...] about Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition Review
