  1. This homage to the old series includes Street Fighter III, which is more than enough to win over 2D fighting game fans. The rest of the collection, however, pales in comparison.
  2. Great value and a slice of gaming history, but it's still a shame they couldn't have put some more stuff together. [GamesMaster]
  3. For the casual player, this is archaic stuff that’ll provide about an hour of nostalgic fun.

    Though it’s not the dream collection fans hoped for, it’s still nice to be re-acquainted with these venerable fighters.

    With the release of Street Fighter Anniversary Collection, Capcom has basically thrown us the keys to their studio to do to this game whatever the hell we want.

    This edition costs only $30, but you essentially get one game, with a lot of variants, for the money. If you want to go retro, you should pick up "Midway Arcade Treasures" for more 2-D bang for less buck.

Nothing much The best part about this game is the fact that you can beat it on the easiest level and still get the character's ending. Nothing much has actually been done to improve the game. Didn't love 'Third Strike' as much the classic is still the best. Full Review »
