SUPER STREET FIGHTER IV 3D EDITION

Capcom
3DS

First, a word from our sponsor... CAPCOM PRESENTS (damn, why are ads always louder? Volume knob...) Chun-Li’s Greatest Hits! Featuring classics like ‘Thigh of the Tiger’, ‘I Only Have Thighs For You’, ‘Hungry Thighs’, ‘For Your Thighs Only’, ‘Can't Take My Thighs Off You’, ‘My Thighs Adored You’, ‘World in my Thighs’, ‘We Close Our Thighs’, ‘Blackened Blue Thighs’ and, of course, her touching rendition of The Streets’ ‘Dry Your Thighs’...

Alright. Pathetic groan-inducingness aside, she does have unusually big thighs, and in 3D they’re even more whopperous. Naturally, however, there’s more to SSFIV than Chun Li’s pins, so onwards...

For classic thwomp action, it doesn’t get thwompier than the Street Fighter series. Capcom’s sharpened the mixture of fighters, abilities, controls and learning curve over several incarnations over several years to a hyper-honed pointy-point.

Sure, but how’s it fare when hurled – literally kicking and screaming - into the <echo> third-ird-ird dimension-sion-sion?</echo>. Erm, well actually.

As with any 3DS game that‘s ever gonna be worthwhile, you can nix the 3D altogether and it plays just sweetly thankyouverymuch. But crank that slider and the machine’s techno-witchcraft sees your chosen fighters ‘pop’. Opt for the funktastic new ‘Dynamic View’ and get 3D on 3D, with an over-the-shoulder vista that’s worth experiencing.

Controls work well, and having combos able to be giant stabbable squares on screen two makes for ease of pulpinating any of the 35 characters.

Outside world connection’s full-on, not just for wi-fi-fighting, but with the StreetPass thingy your team can throw challenges at other Street Fighters they come across as you go about your biz. It’d be creepy if it wasn’t so cool.

Strip away the gimmickry and this is still supoib SF. Yep, the thighs have it... (SCHMACK! Oof. Urgh. Uh-huh, we deserved that).


take me back to the start...
