  1. In a nutshell this can be described as the best GBA fighting game on the shelves.

    Slightly busted control aside, this is an exceptional port. [Nov 2002, p.74]

    Wow! Steet Fighter Alpha 3 looks and plays great on the GBA with very few compromises made for the handheld. [Oct 2002, p.76]
  4. While Street Fighter Alpha 3 for the GBA does cut a few corners here and there, it takes a discerning fan to notice any real difference between this version and the arcade original--and that's pretty amazing.
  5. 80
    Such a vast amount of data has been squeezed into this tiny cartridge that it is nothing short of technical wizardry.
  6. The audio effects and soundtrack have been pared down, but this is as close as Nintendo's handheld will get in recreating the arcade experience.
  7. A fantastic port on the GBA, but the controls hold it back from being a great title on the system.

    This game is not a port from any SNES title, SNES never could run a game like this. Superior in many aspects even de PSX version, and has even more characters. Music is not good, but is not too bad as people is sying it is. Gameplay, the most important thing on the evaluation, is Superb. Anyone who likes Capcom games shold buy this cardrigde. I've sayd.

    It's good, but there are way to many moves where you have to hold a button for two seconds or so, It has no pick-up-and-play-ability, and even on the lowest difficulty, from stage 7 upwards, the fighters (especialy Vega) WILL tear you a new mouth in your stomach. Capcom should make EX plus A for GBA. Expand
