Street Fighter 4

I've been plugging Street Fighter 4 into my console as of late. I must admit the more I play the more I can appreciate this next installment. Having played Street Fighter over the last 10+ years, I would conclude it is a worthy successor of the series.

The game is smooth and well balanced. The focus attack (or new parry system) is now easier to execute and weaker than previously. Cheap throws are also toned down; and the bias towards making a comeback is greater.

My only criticism is that I would prefer to see some Third Strike characters such as Alex or Yun instead of the Alpha characters (Dan, Gen, Rose).
