Peter “Combofiend” Rosas here with a look at our new latest character, Guile, in Street Fighter V. Will the great American Soldier be on par with the rest of the cast? Let’s find out
Guile has historically had his only two main iconic specials - the Sonic Boom, and the Flash Kick, both of which created a unique playstyle compared to other characters which utilized a lot more tools in their general gameplans
But in this game, we’re switching things up a bit for the flat-top headed family man, by removing his signature Flash Kick. We felt that players had a hard time getting in with Guile controlling the space on the ground and in the air, which made him a little too strong.
In an another attempt to counter this, the recovery of his Sonic Booms across all 4 versions has been increased slightly, now Guile players will have to be more careful with throwing these out
This is Combofiend, singing off
