I've been a fan of the Street Fighter games since I was a kid and I still am in my 20's. I couldn't imagine my life without it and having such a great fighting game in general on a handheld console is a feat of modern technology. This game has a large roster of characters. It's not the complete roster, but who cares? Everything is incredibly detailed and still blows me away how a portable console can handle it. The voice acting is hit or miss, but for the most part is pretty good. The controls are responsive and tight. And the game even has an option to have the camera behind your fighter. Points to Capcom for being creative. The touch screen is an incredible asset to the game; during a fight, four icons are on the screen at all times and allow you to do the respective special move instantly. You can keep these commands the way they are or change them to your liking. While I laud this, it breaks the game if you have no one to play with and are forced to fight nothing but computer players. No matter how many Hadokens you spam at Zangief, the computer never seems to figure out what you have planned and just takes it. In other words, it makes the game too easy if you have no one to play with. Also, I feel like the touch screen should always provide you with a list of your character's special moves, and better yet, you should have the ability to tap these commands to perform it. My gripes with this game are very, very few. If Capcom made the minor tweaks I suggested in the paragraph above, I would give the game a perfect score.
