Street Fighter IV

I was never a fan of fighting games, but this one got my attention.



I'm really digging the shading style employed in this game. Basically it's 3D fighting game (what isn't 3d nowadays...), but it retains the hand-painted look of the original games instead of just the oh-so overused normal-map shading .

Kudos to the look-dev department for coming up with such a unique style that, IMHO, set it apart from other fighting games in the market.

I heard the game still plays in 2D, the best for the SF series, just that the graphics have evolved to 3D. And yeah, nice look to it, can't wait for the game!

I think gameplay-wise it won't bring anything new to the table. At the end of the day it'll just be the same game in a prettier package.

The graphics are innovative, but not really interactive.
