My copy of this guide arrived this morning and I have to say it's brilliant but not perfect.

The most important factor is that it explains things far better than the game manual does (which I believe is down to poor translation in the manual).

Obviously it has the advantage of giving full detail on ALL characters (which the manual gives basic move lists on but doesn't on ALL characters because of the fact you have to unlock some and therefore they didn't want to give away who you unlock).

It has incredibly detailed pages about each character, listing their moves, special moves, combos etc etc and frame data. It also has pictures of what each punch and kick looks like, which is great for both playing as that character and against. Therefore this is the perfect guide for mastering all the characters and is great in that respect as it offers solid strategies and the info you need character-wise.

It covers all the basics at the start, combos, dashes, blocking, countering, safe and unsafe hits and fully explains the concept of the revenge gauge and combo gauges so after reading this you'll know everything you need to in order to master the game.

Where the book in my opinion DOESN'T deserve 5 stars is the explanation of how to unlock all the characters, the icons and the titles.

It states unlocking characters such as Seth is as simple as completing arcade with all other characters, this is NOT true and requires far more specific circumstances. To find out this information I suggest you simple search on Google as there's very detailed guides on how to do this as it requires specifics such as getting 3 ultra combo finishes to even meet Gouken.

This is my 1st review.

The guide arrived and was unread; so that was a good start!

The layout/typesetting of the guide are fine, no clumsy graphic/text clashes.

As for the main body of this review, the content of the guide...

The content is comprehensive and accurate; the moves are listed along with some ideas for strategy/usage. Various terms are explained and expanded upon; usually with some decent pictures, and each character has their standard/EX/special/ultra moves pictured.
Combo's are listed for each character but not all, the guide would be the size of a phone book!

All in all a good buy, all I wanted was the move lists as I play using OnLive (so only in-game instructions).

To the people saying that this guide doesn't have all the frame data/timings/training explanations.... Try playing the game!! That's how you get better, not by reading bloody books.

It's a good book for those who don't know street fighter at all.

Otherwise you can find better tips on the web, and for free.
The information in this book lacks precision for all characters concerning high level fighting, there are too many useless pictures (in the ugly training background) not commented, and NO fighting tips between characters.
(If you wanna know how to be efficient with Honda against Sagat, for example, don't count on this book)

The cover of the book I've received doesn't match the promo picture one.
