    All anyone really needs to know however is that 3rd Strike looks great, plays great, sounds great and is the definitive version of the SFIII series.
  2. Even trivial things like the special effects for the Super Art have been changed, and like the new character voices, it's a small touch that goes a very long way towards making an attractive, complete package worth buying.
  3. Play it loud, on a big-assed TV, until you've mastered every character, your girlfriend's left you and the bank has repossessed the goldfish.
  4. This is one beautiful title to look at, despite the rather lackluster character designs.
  5. With near-perfect control, a great new hip-hop soundtrack, several new characters that weren't in "Double Impact" (including perennial favorite Chun Li) and the best 2D animation we've ever seen in a fighting game, this game is certainly the business.
  6. Although it doesn't have the insane special moves or high character count of "Marvel vs Capcom 2," it does offer a tight gameplay engine for skilled fighters, and wonderfully smooth graphics to complete the package.
