  1. If you’re a devout Street Fighter fan, chances are you already picked Alpha Anthology up. Folks who are fans of the fighting genre in general can’t really go wrong either, especially with the $30 price tag.

    The icing on the violent cake is the Dramatic Battle mode, which allows three-man fights for those really epic throwdowns against the likes of M. Bison and Akukma. [July 2006, p.64]
  3. Regardless of Street Fighter Alpha Anthology’s gaming value, it does a wonderful job of showing how a fighting series evolves from a slow and skitchy brawler, to a fast and fluid fighter.

    Despite its pedigree, there's not enough here to prise open our wallets. We're sticking with "Street Fighter Alpha Max" on PSP, thanks. [July 2006, p.91]
  5. The Alpha titles offer a dramatic battle setting which pits two against one and a survival mode, where a character fights battle after battle until he or she dies. Fun times.
  6. The Alpha games feature special counter moves, and more characters and combos with each progressive title. The main question is: do you want to spend 20 quid on this collection when you've probably already got most of the titles in the loft?

    I love this game, but since arcades are a dying breed there's no longer any head to head human competition. Thats what made this game soI love this game, but since arcades are a dying breed there's no longer any head to head human competition. Thats what made this game so popular. The omission of online game for the playstaytion 2 series renders this game totally useless, Thus my rating of a 1. Just one more in the series collecting dust. Full Review »
