  1. 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.

    I may have worked on the game (helping assemble the new soundtrack for OverClocked ReMix), but of course I love HD Remix regardless of that.I may have worked on the game (helping assemble the new soundtrack for OverClocked ReMix), but of course I love HD Remix regardless of that. Street Fighter II was an important game that got me hooked on both game music and the Street Fighter series in the first place.

    Besides UDON creating some excellent art in HD, David Sirlin really put his all into creating a much deeper, more balanced and more sophisticated playing experience by compressing the character tiers. Both Sirlin's vision and his execution of that vision created the foundation of excellence that the rest of us were able to build upon and accentuate.

    Beautiful visuals and impressive music are a real treat, but the offline play is ridiculously punishing, even on the standard difficultyBeautiful visuals and impressive music are a real treat, but the offline play is ridiculously punishing, even on the standard difficulty level, and the online competition is far too hardcore for this game to be enjoyable for even normally capable Street Fighter fans. Unless you have local friends you enjoy playing with, or you are used to fending off wave after wave of challengers in the arcade, this version may be more infuriating than fun. Casual players stay FAR away. Full Review »
