  1. Although not as complex as "Tekken Tag," or as simple to play as "DOA2," Street Fighter EX3 is still a fighter, and one that can battle with the best of them on the PS2.
  2. EX3 may feel a bit rushed in some spots, but overall it's a fun and great-looking fighting game that won't disappoint longtime EX fans.

    A typical EX game: solid, a bit boring, and uninspired. It lacks the key elements--great graphics, tight gameplay, and personality in its game design--that give the 2D Street Fighter games their appeal.
  4. Unfortunately, the controls are still choppy compared with Dreamcast blockbuster "Soul Calibur," which defeats the purpose of splurging on a new PlayStation 2.
  5. Throwing a fireball at Ken is still as much fun as ever, and it does look better than any other Street Fighter EX game. It won’t be the best Street Fighter game you ever play, but it’ll be fun nonetheless.
  6. 50
    A middle of the road fighter that lacks pizzazz and inspiration.
  7. The characters are stiff and look almost mechanical in their movement. The character response time isn't all the great either. Most of all, SFEX3 lacks any type of fun factor. I can't recommend this game to even the most die-hard SF fan.

    It's been a long, long time since I last played this. But I do remember one thing:

    I hated it. Granted, I will give it a little credit
    It's been a long, long time since I last played this. But I do remember one thing:

    I hated it.

    Granted, I will give it a little credit for trying to do something new, but what it does is still too rough around the edges. For a series with as large a fan base as Street Fighter, I was a bit shocked that they did this. I know that at the time 3D fighters were becoming more and more popular (with Virtua Fighter and Tekken leading in that regard) but Street Fighter was 2D and that is what makes Street Fighter, Street Fighter.

    Overall:
    I am just overly relieved that this was just a minor phase and that most future SF games went back to the 2D (or 2D-like) style.
