Ultra Suck Fighter IV: PlayStation 4 Edition

In its current state, Ultra Street Fighter IV on the PlayStation 4 sucks. I personally haven’t run into the more egregious stuff that some people have reported, but what I have seen is inexcusable. Sluggish menus. Online UI all out of place so that usernames cut off. Audio out of sync or cutting off. Decapre’s Scramble move running at a slower speed and traveling a shorter distance. Worst of all is the input lag. For a system with this level of horsepower, it’s inexcusable that it actually runs worse than both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. Three frames may not sound like a lot, but when many combos have timing windows that are 1 or 2 frames, it’s actually really hard to adjust if you’ve played this game elsewhere.

All things considered, the current state of Ultra Street Fighter IV on PlayStation 4 is baffling. This is pretty much worse in every way compared to its last gen brethren. Capcom, Sony and Other Ocean should be embarrassed for letting this half-baked port of an old game out the door in this condition. Until this is patched to fix all of these issues, don’t buy this.
