There's a lot of little errors in here, such as:

"t’s as if he was thrown in the game as a generic evil character just to M. Bison and Akuma (you know, the real antagonists) look better."

Overal, you do a really good job with the introduction, giving us a real feeling that you are a Street Fighter fan and know what the series is about. It's good to see a fan's opinion on such an important release. It does speak to a certain elitism, as you make passing references to story lines and characters that no-one who hasn't played the game would understand without really making an attempt to explain how a newcomer would like these characters. But that doesn't bother me, not really.

I'm more bothered by the brevity with which you explain the new system. I'm confused by all the terms... counter-attacks, focus, charge, ultra combos... granted, I've missed a couple SF games over the years, but I think you could have done a better job explaining. Maybe by actually giving an example of focus in use, rather than a short technical explanation. It's just that you spend a lot of time on the presentation and line up, and very little time on gameplay, which seems somewhat counter-intuitive in a fighting game.

But only somewhat. Despite my complaints, I thought this was a really good review.

Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

Very good points, dude. This is what happens when I rush through things. >.< I gave it a read-through and fixed things up. Thanks for the input!

Is there another word for synonym?
