  1. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    100
    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. GMR Magazine
    90
    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.

This game is awesome, it has the coolest characters of classic series, each one has a stage and a own soundtrack and the fight narrative is EPIC ! I played the version of SF30thAC released in 2018, the game still nice and nostalgic! Expand

Sorry that the review didn't really involve gameplay but it was more of a personal review. Expand
