Watch: Street Fighter 5's brilliance just about makes up for barebones launch

Is this Ryu life?

Street Fighter 5 launches tomorrow, and so we're holding off on running our review until we've had a chance to test matchmaking in a post-release setting. But we've spent enough time with the final build to get a sense of what the fighting game is all about. In short: Street Fighter 5 is wonderful fun, but suffers from a disappointingly barebones launch.

In the video, below, I chat with Eurogamer reviews and features editor Martin Robinson about Street Fighter 5 as it is at launch. Check the site later this week for our full review.
