Let’s compare the launch games… Which one is better in which aspects.
I’d say no contest here, because it’s obvious there couldn’t be possible competition.
Home version of SFIV had more characters, but Street Fighter V redesigned and gave new gameplay to many classics. I still prefer the one of SFIV, they had some on-point choices like featuring Fei Long who was mostly a forgotten character.
While the designs of the SFV new characters are better, I preferred the gameplay of those from SFIV.
Street Fighter V this time.
Street Fighter IV had unlockable characters and other stuff via the arcade mode. The “story mode” of Street Fighter V is not animated, short and lackluster, and it looks like unlocking characters could be a pain in the ass.
Street Fighter IV was better.
I’d give the win to Street Fighter IV this time
