Hi Jason, this is a very good review that told me everything I wanted to know about the port -- especially as I'm potentially in the market for a 3DS.

Some tiny issues:

Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition is a beautiful game and a worthy purchase if you have a shiny new 3DS but nothing to play.

The opening line implies that the game is a worthy purchase if you have nothing else to play for your new system. I don't think this is what you're trying to get across with a game rated 9/10. Perhaps:

"Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition is a beautiful game and a worthy purchase especially if you have a shiny new 3DS but nothing to play."

That's not wonderful really, but the current versions seems to undercut the game's brilliance.

When Super Street Fighter IV was released on consoles a few years back, I was ecstatic. Aside from the lack of a handful of favorite characters from Super Street Fighter 2 and Street Fighter Alpha 3, the game was a supremely polished version of everything I’d wanted to see for years but had never dared to dream would again be available on a current platform. Then Super Street Fighter IV came along and fixed nearly every problem I had with its immediate predecessor.

I think it's pretty clear you meant Street Fighter IV the first time around, and SUPER Street Fighter IV, the second.

Also, the review ends well with the warning doesn't seem to benefit from the legal letter-sounding "respond accordingly."

Just my two cents.

I'm going to agree with Marc for once. The review's great, but the first line is awful. It sounds like you should play SSFIV because there's nothing else to play rather than to play it on its own merits. It's a pretty derrogitory opening.


For us. For them. For you.

Thanks for reading and thank you for the feedback, you two! I didn't feel especially pleased with the review when I wrote it. I seem to be going through this disgustingly unenjoyable phase where I now question the value of almost everything I write, so it's nice to see constructive criticism from people who enjoyed a review and have solid suggestions for how it can be improved with a few minor tweaks. Maybe I haven't lost it yet after all. Thanks again!

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

To lose it, wouldn't that mean you had to have 'had it' at some point? BOOYAH!

I kid. The review is very good; you need to take a couple steps back.
