    PC-версия популярного файтинга на русском языке.

    Что может объединять людей, отличающихся внешним видом, характером, темпераментом и даже расой? Немногое: прекрасная физическая форма, великолепное знание самых разных боевых искусств и наличие врага, которого надо сокрушить.

    Ожесточенная борьба лучших воинов мира за чемпионский титул в турнире Street Fighter закончилась год назад. Уличная жизнь идет своим чередом. И только почти незаметные и, казалось бы, не связанные друг с другом происшествия изредка нарушают общее спокойствие, являясь вестниками черных перемен: грядущего господства наркомафии и торговцев оружием.


    В PC-версии Street Fighter IV представлены различные многопользовательские онлайн-режимы. Три новых графических стиля — плакат, акварель и традиционный японский рисунок суми-э — существенно изменят визуальный облик игры.


    • Седина в бороду: Street Fighter IV сохранил все плюсы предыдущих версий, полюбившиеся миллионам игроков: сотни драк, проходящих в двухмерном режиме, множество индивидуальных особенностей героев и богатый выбор многопользовательских режимов.
    • Бес в ребро: Файтинг вышел на новый графический уровень. Герои обрели форму, внешность и пластику настоящих мастеров единоборств. Окружающие ландшафты обогатились множеством деталей и красок. Сохранив задор и темперамент предшественников, Street Fighter нового поколения стал еще динамичней и интересней.
