As its predecessors Street Fighter V is also a game of fight, in which two players use various stunts and techniques to defeat its opponent. Street Fighter III has introduced the feature of EX, which builds up as the player makes successful attacks which can be used for power ups, special attacks or perform super combos called Critical Arts. An added feature in the game is the ’V- Gauge”, which builds up as the player receives attacks and adds three new techniques: V-Skills, V-Reversals, and V-Triggers-Skills are different for each fighter, depending on which fighter you are you may parry attack if you are Ryu but you will reflect projectiles if you are M.Bison.

In V-Reversal you can use a section of V-Gauge to perform a counter move when you are being attacked. You can use the entire V-Gauge for a V-Trigger to perform a unique ability, like hits to Chun-Li’s attacks. The Stun Meter from Street Fighter III has taken its place under the health bars in this version.

Why Will It Be A Success
Capcom has always released its series keeping the newbies in mind, they have made these games simple so that anyone can pick up. The combos, counter attacks, etc. need time to master. We all know learning is easy but mastering is difficult, but that’s where the value of the game lies. Practice Makes Perfect!
The designer has used his imagination well by combining flashy colors and effects in the game and to the characters personality. This is appealing to the eyes of the audience. Like when there is an intense match and there is a brutal strike connect, there is a jelly-jiggle in the recipients face.
The characters in the game have balanced abilities so the players keep their calm. Like Ryu’s fireballs can be deflected by Zangief even if he doesn’t have range attacks. Capcom books matches based on experience so that the new gamers do not get stuck against the veterans.
