Super Street Fighter IV

Okay first off if you have just Street Fighter IV you are missing out on quite a lot with the extra characters, but if you don't much care about extra characters there is not much different between the two games. I would Also like to say I picked this game up for about 20 bucks new at Sam's Club.

This is the first SF game I have played since Street Fighter II Turbo and Championship Edition, and it was GREAT. I have heard a lot of bad things from others about the previous iterations of this title that I was a bit leery about getting this one. I got Street Fighter IV for free as part of promotion with my video card and loved it, but on the computer it was missing something. So when we found Super Street Fighter IV for 20 dollars for the Xbox 360 my Wife and I decided to purchase.

There isn't much to say other than the fact that the game is exactly what you would expect from an SF title. I have only played Versus so far but the selection of characters is awesome even if six of them have more or less the same moves (Ken, Ryu, Gokuen, Akuma, Sakura, and Dan) but still even given that they all play slightly differently and are great fun.

I would recommend this game for anyone with an itch to bash up some friends in one on one combat. Very fun and very worthwhile.

Rock Band:The Beatles.

This is a review of the story mode in Rockband The Beatles. I would like to say that this is one of the most polished versions of Rockband I have played. The interface is much more mellow and doesn't put as much strain on your eyes. The best part of this game has been the venues and the background characters. The songs are wonderful and through the first part of the story you play their iconic venues, like The Ed Sullivan Show, and the Baseball Field in Japan. The things going on behind the highways (the part the notes fly down on) are very interesting and eye catching. It can distract you away from the game but for the most part, it will just make it enjoyable for those that are over to play but are sitting one out. Also the story mode follows very closely to the history of the Beatles through their Career. There was not a song I did not like to play on this iteration of Rock Band. So far I have only gotten to enjoy playing guitar and bass, and I look forward to having a band. The only downside to this game for me so far is the incompatibility with all other Rock Band titles but as good as this one is that is just a minor inconvience.

Final Thoughts: Rock Band The Beatles is a great game that is enjoyable to play with smooth songs and a carefree vibe. It features songs that have stood the test of time all that is left is to see if the game follows in the foot steps of the music is features.
