  1. Unlike so many remakes of classic fighters, Turbo HD has soul...It’s definitely a must-have title for any self-respecting fighting fan. Period.
  2. What once was old is now new again and it still maintains that same classic gameplay that helped it to achieve its legendary status.
  3. Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix is an absolutely excellent game, download or otherwise.
  4. 90
    HD Remix is a superb edition of a timeless game complete with nearly flawless online gameplay.
  5. This is absolutely the best Street Fighter seen in years, but just be ready for a beatdown and you'll be fine.
  6. Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix is a game long in name, short on modes, but overwhelmingly high on quality and replay value. It comes up a bit short on some counts, but fans will definitely not be disappointed with the end result. If you're looking for a well-balanced online fighter with plenty of competitors, this is your best bet.
  7. That doesn't mean the online play is perfect. In fact, many people have reported matchmaking issues and assorted glitches. Matchmaking shouldn't be a problem when playing with friends via invites (on either PSN or XBL), but when playing random players it's a mixed bag.

    Awesome Multiplayer game! Me and my roommates got seriously addicted to this game and have been playing it for almost 6 months now. Basically it is a multiplayer version of tetris where you make color coordinated squares and rectangles to blow up with the corresponding color bubble and attack your opponent, which send the blocks onto their side. It has an online mode but mainly it is online japanese players that have mastered the game and will wreck shop on you with their Puzzle Fighter skills. The 2-Player Versus mode is the best and ends up being the only thing you'll play with friends because it is such a strategy based game. A Definite download for a Playstation 3 owner! And its only $10 too! Expand

    Amazing!!! First off, I will tell you my background on the series. I probably wasted hundreds of dollars in quarters on the arcade games, and my first true street fighter game was Super Street Fighter II Turbo on the Super Nintendo. I must have poured a thousand hours into that game and didn't realize I loved it so much until I played it recently. I couldn't believe how many moves I remembered, and how nostalgic the game made me feel. So, I figured I should buy SSF4 for my PS3 and give in to my urge to kick some butt again. After some research and trying SSF4 for a few free 15 minute game sessions on my Onlive Game console, I decided I would rather spend the money on a game i didn't even get to try (SSF2 HD Remix). As soon as I tried it, the game brought me back. I guess they rebalanced the game, but I didn't notice. It's pretty much the exact same game as before. The animations and timing for the moves are perfect! The graphics though, get a major overhaul. Capcom had Udon comic book company in Japan completely redraw all of the characters and levels of the game and they animated it all in HD to make it looks as if you're watching an Anime film. I also love the music. It is essentially the same soundtrack that is updated with a more heavy metal, Dragon Ball Z type of sound. ( By the way, you can go back to classic music if you choose). Also, we have a multiplayer online mode with no lag, and there is a character move list for all the fighters, so you won't have to worry about that either. Without a doubt, this is an amazing effort and I will go right back to playing the game as soon as I finish posting this review, with hopes that I can convince others to buy this game instead of the more expensive SSF4, like I originally was going to buy.

    Best Street Fighter 2 Game i have ever played. And yes, i've been playing since Street Fighter 1 !! This version is amazing!! Very well balanced fighters (some top experts helped to balance it), beatiful graphic, great multiplayer and still they kept the option to play in the old style. Street Fighter fans can't miss this game. Expand

    Me deje influenciar por la nostalgia y un demo que descargue en el que se veian "bonitos" los modelos de los personajes, pero al comprarlo me di cuenta que ya habian pasado muchos años y que tenia bastantes fallos ese gameplay que ahora SSF IV ya habia reparado y que ni cuenta me habia dado cuenta, claro es un gameplay exactamente al de SSF II pero creo que ya no es lo que necesito, me quedo con el SSF IV Expand

    It may have been good in its day but I'm really not seeing the "HD" part of it. Stages are acceptable but some characters are almost unrecognisable compared to Street Fighter IV, which obviously looks better. In terms of balancing, throws do too much damage and you generally get very little health so rounds finish fast. However, it's not fast paced or fluent since controls and movement feel clunky and blocky rather than smooth. It doesn't seem to run at 60 FPS even though it probably does. Strategy and skill are short-lived and this apparent classic becomes more of an arcade mess-about rather than something more serious. Combos don't really seem to exist either. If you've played Street Fighter Iv avoid this if not it may be a simple way to get started since it's so difficult to take seriously. Expand

    Gameplay 3 Graphic 3 Music 3 Collectible:3 Not recomment ! Not worth for $ ! Game play: over damage, too easy to death, AI is tough.
    Graphic: not feel like original (worse), less detail, just like children paint on a large paper.
    Music: a little remix but not feel better.
    Collectible: 0
    Conclusion: I think It can not called a final production game, It's like a experimental product. (Compare with Tekken 5)
