Watch all 16 amazing Critical Art finishers from the near-complete Street Fighter 5

Street Fighter 5 is really bloody impressive. If you want further clarification of that, check out my extended hands-on with the near-complete roster. Or if you want a more overall look, you can gaze a little deeper back through the mists of time at my discoveries during my lengthy play-test at the game's reveal. But you know what's most impressive? Those Critical Art moves.

The most deadly move in each fighter's repertoire, they devour entire chunks of health while looking alternately apocalyptic and downright hilarious. So far we've only seen them sporadically, as new characters have been briefly revealed or added to the beta (which is going on right now on PS4 and PC), so having recently played a near complete version of the game, I thought it time to bring you the whole lot, in one place, by way of a spectacular, mammoth supercut, So here they are.

If you want to know how to pull this stuff off - whether you're stepping into the beta this weekend, or just want to prime yourself for the game's full release next year - just click through to the video on our YouTube channel, where you'll find all of the command inputs in the description. But for now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the glorious carnage. I defy you not to laugh yourself silly at Birdie's 'Skip to my Chain' at the end.
