Street Fighter: The Novel: Where Strength Lies

I’ve been a long time Street Fighter fan, starting with playing SF2: Champion Edition in the arcades and expanding my love for the series in all its available comics and other releases that expand the story lines of some of my favorite characters. I was looking forward to reading this book, but found its writing extremely flat and predictable. Maybe its because we’ve experienced Ryu VS Akuma so many times that there isn’t really anything left to explore between these two; but even the book’s later chapters don’t deliver anything ground breaking.

If you’re extremely new to the Street Fighter Universe, this book may be a great way to start; but long time fans can get a better Street Fighter story elsewhere.
