Street Fighter V is a very popular fighting game, featuring really fast-paced, enjoyable combat and very vibrant graphics.
Pro Excellent visuals
Street fighter V strikes a perfect balance between gritty realism and cartoony graphics. Most of the models, textures, and particle effects are very detailed, colorful, and there's enough visual clarity, so it never detracts from gameplay. It's just very pleasing to look at the on-screen action.
Pro Diverse cast of playable characters
What Street Fighter V might lack in quantity it makes up for with quality. Each one of the 28 characters has a very distinct look, combat style, and special moves. Thanks to this, it's very fun to try out and learn multiple characters, purely because they feel so different from each other.
Pro Great for newcomers
Something that may have held people back from playing this series was the tough controls for pulling off successful combos and special moves. This has been tweaked in SF V, as the controls are a bit easier to understand as well as pull off. This was done by design in order to make the game more accessible.
Pro Enjoyable combat
Street Fighter V's combat involves a lot of strategy and technique, requiring you to utilize combos, special moves, and reading your opponent. Despite that, it's still a lot of fun to punch, kick, and fire ki blasts regardless of your skill level due to excellent visuals, great sound, responsive controls, and a terrific netcode. It just feels really nice fighting your opponent in any game mode.
Con Poorly written story
Even though each character has a storyline, it doesn't give you any meaningful background info. Because of this, you can't clearly understand a character's motivations or empathize with them. So whenever you see a character being angry, sad, or just amused, it seems exaggerated. The voice acting doesn't help much either since it's only fairly average.
