Street Fighter V came out last week. The launch was a bit... mediocre.
In general people seem quite unhappy with the online implementation in particular. But what about the game itself? How are you all finding that so far?
As a long term (but ultimately casual) fan of the series, I'm ashamed to say I haven't actually played Street Fighter V yet, but I am keen. I thought Street Fighter IV was phenomenal but that was a ground up reinvention in a lot of ways. This one feels a bit safer.
Not that that's a bad thing necessarily, but it has made Street Fighter V feel a bit less essential. I get the sense this one is for the competitive set, which makes sense in the context of ESports and its growth.
How have you all been finding Street Fighter V so far?
