  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.

While this port isn't arcade perfect like its bigger Dreamcast brother, it still is a terrific translation of the original game. A few brief loading screens brings a slight pause in between fights which can be annoying. Nevertheless, this is a great fighting game for Sony's first console. I would rate it with a 9.3 out of 10.

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!!
