I held out hope that this new gen of console would breath life into the franchise and thank goodness I have not been let down. SC has always had beautiful backgrounds and cut scenes, but in SC4 the character detail is on another level- the animation and graphical clarity during fights has never been better, with a real sense of solidity and depth to the characters. The 'create a fighter' mode is great, even if you cannot combine move sets from different characters. The inclusion of the Star Wars universe does not grate on me as much as I though it would, and Yoda leaping about like when he fought Duku in the movies is a lot of fun- at least he is a bit 'different' and not like Spawn in SC2, who felt merely like a familiar fighter with a different character model patched over the top.
The joy of the SC series is that, for purists, there is depth, but it still allows 'button mashers' to pull off some great combos. Some see this as a fault, but i love the fact that in vs mode I cant take for granted that I can beat someone less familiar with the game- every fight is challenging.
I am not online, but can only presume that, providing there are no lag issues, the vs mode will be as entertaining as it is in 'meatspace'.
If you loved SC, but felt let down by number 3, then let this game restore you faith in a truly great gaming series- its the best its been since it lived on the Dreamcast.
The single player modes lack something. Story mode is a bit of a joke really, and there's not much sense of achievement in arcade mode. OK, Tower of lost souls does provide something else but there's little variety really. Online play lags a lot at times but can be entertaining. It is a problem that if you get downed once, your opponent can pretty easily hit you with several attacks and you've lost. As usual with xbox live, the majority of players are only concerned with stats and levelling up, so you're unlikely to find many matches where they are trying out different moves/combos etc, it's usual standard button bashing in an effort to win, which detracts from the entertainment value.
It can be fairly repetitive in all modes, though in some ways that is a problem of any fighting game. There is a good selection of characters but a lot of them have the same fighting style. Yes, we get Yoda rather than Vader, but really that's a minor point and really shouldn't affect your decision to buy the game or not.
Graphically it's pretty good, and to link in with the title, I'm sure the ample breasts bouncing around on the female characters will do no harm to the games sales amongst certain parts of society!
Overall it's a decent enough game but not one that's likely to hold the attention for months on end. If you want a good fighting game though, look no further.
