  1. One of the best 2D fighters ever made. [Nov 2001, p.52]
  2. 100
    Alpha 3 truly excels with its plethora of extra play-modes.
  3. 100
    While it is sometimes glaringly obvious that this is scaled down, Alpha's famous speed and depth comes across perfectly. All the combos, special moves and ISM's are in place, as are the characters.
  4. Fighting games don't come much more accomplished than this though, and Street Fighter Alpha 3 is one of the most addictive and playable we've ever come across.
  5. Arguably the best version of Street Fighter to grace the system. [Feb 2003, p.97]
  6. Street Fighter Alpha 3 won't steal the profile from the more flashy entries in the fighting genre, but those who know, will find the best fighting experience next to a "Virtua Fighter 3" arcade machine.
  7. The game's graphical prowess and arcade-perfect gameplay combined with its cache of bonus modes makes Street Fighter Alpha 3 the latest standard for 2D excellence on the PlayStation.

    Street FIghter Alpha 3 was the best in the Alpha trilogy! I love the fact that they added characters and additional modes in the console versions. I love this game for introducing Karin and Cody, two of my favorite characters. Expand

    This was the one of the PS games that I had left and used to play it occasionally on my PS2 right up to my PS3 and I was always amazed at how good it was, I would be sitting there playing it on an adrenaline rush and realising that it was a ten year old game .Also seeing that it had a good meta rating kinda cheered me up as it was a bit mysterious to me as I never known anyone who played it, and I thought it was my little gem. Sorry that the review didn't really involve gameplay but it was more of a personal review. Expand

    Street Fighter Alpha 3 is a flawless entry into the franchise. It's well balanced and refined to perfection. There are 30 characters to play as, which gives you more fighting variety than you can shake a controller at. The graphics are exquisite, featuring bright 2D art and animation that is both impressive and nostalgic. Basically speaking, Street Fighter Alpha 3 is my favorite 2D fighter of all time... Hadouken!!
