This game is perfect for: casual gamers
There is a lot of fun to have with this game. My favorite thing about this game is the huge roster of characters. There is no way possible to not find at least one character here that you'll love to play as, for me personally it's Adon. The only downside is that there's not much content here for those who like single-player only games, but if that doesn't affect you then I can completely recommend this to you.
I know what you're thinking: Another Street Fighter 4 update?! And I wouldn't blame you for rolling your eyes, but hardcore SF fans will find some significance here: 5 new characters (Decapre, Elena, Hugo, Poison, and Rolento), 6 new stages, ALL of the previously released outfits, the ability to use both ultra combos in a match via the Ultra Double option, and a few other gameplay tweaks.
Granted, most of the "new" content is ported over from Street Fighter X Tekken (3 of the new characters and ALL of the new stages) and Decapre is just a glorified Cammy clone. Plus, the interface and music remain largely the same as Super Street Fighter 4. It would have been nice to see a batch of entirely fresh characters--or at least more remodeled from Street Fighter 3 / Alpha.
Despite not being the massive update it could have been, Ultra Street Fighter 4 is the definitive version of the game and one of the most solid fighters out there. Perhaps a port to PS4 and Xbox One is next--or better yet--Street Fighter 5. Cross your fingers...
