iPhone Apps Reviews: Street Fighter IV

This would be a preview of the much talked about game from CAPCOM.
It's the Street Fighter IV. This really brings us back to the old good days of Nintendo..

To start off, this game costs $9.99 and yes it's a little costly for an iPhone game.
Upon executing the game, you will see a nice video scene of Ken vs Ryu.
 After that, you will be brought to a screen which looks exactly like below.

By selecting the "Solo Play", you will be introduced to all the fighters. Unfortunately there are only 8 fighters to choose from. This is really bad..

The players are:
  • Abel
  • Blanka
  • Chun Li
  • Ryu
  • Bison
  • Dhalsim
  • Guile
  • Ken
Now, let's get to the fighting part. As you know, iPhone based game are all multitouch and without hard buttons. The controls look like below but surprisingly I find it not very difficult to control the movements of the fighters. This is thanks to the Apple's technology of superb multitouch and the high responsiveness of the capacitive touch screen.

Some actions.. 

Some special moves of Ken.. 

Towards the end of the fight (the last opponent is always Bison), it will show the time you took to complete the entire tournament.

Okay.. My verdict on this game would be a 8/10. 
The missing 2 points are due to the lack of fighting characters and the hefty price tag!
I think anyone who have endured the time when you were kids with the famous Street Fighter saga would love this game.
