    Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers delivers a lot of fun, even if the overall package could stand to have some room for improvement. The Way of the Hado mode is mere filler, but the core game is an absolute blast. Using either the original or revamped art works well, and you can alternate between each style along with changing the music from the original to remixes before a full gameplay session. Controlling it with the regular JoyCon setup on either the tablet or the grip works shockingly well – even though the split d-pad is far from ideal. Using the left stick feels natural, and you don’t need to rush out and buy a Pro controller to enjoy the full experience.

    The idea of bringing a Street Fighter game on the go is great, specially when you have the possibility to share the experience with someone else. While not perfect it offers a fun an addictive experience while playing with friends.

    Despite having few novelties and being the most complete version of Street Fighter II to date, the specific additions for the occasion just do not excite us.

    Street Fighter 2 remains a good game, whatever incarnation it appears in, but the new modes add nothing (and are bad) and it's far too expensive. A conundrum, then, and one only you can decide if you're willing to pay out for.

    While I don't think that Ultra Street Fighter II will set anyone's world on fire, I got some enjoyment out of it. [Issue #28 – July/August 2017, p. 73]

    It needs to be said once more that Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers isn’t a bad game – it really isn’t. But it’s a game that’s been making rounds since the early 90’s, with a port that feels eerily familiar to a version that first arrived roughly nine years ago on Xbox 360 and PS3. Then there’s the price point of $39.99 USD, which feels more like a gouging than anything nearly reasonable.

    The first-person Way of the Hado mode is garbage.

It's still worth a look in, especially for newer gamers that have not played street fighter before. Expand

    Overall a pretty good game, I'll summarize my thoughts below

    positive:
    You can switch between Classic and HD Visuals and Sound
    Full Art Gallery
    Option to create custom colors for characters
    Arcade mode isn't nearly as cheap as Super Turbo
    Joycon works surprisingly well
    Training mode is helpful
    Online works great
    Runs with no issues in handheld mode
    Doesn't drain much battery

    negatives:
    New characters are very unbalanced
    Way of The Hado's motion controls barely work
    Game costs $40 which is expensive for an SF2 port
    Can get boring as it's based off an old Street Fighter engine

    Final thoughts:
    Maybe wait for a price cut before buying this one. If you're a fan of Street Fighter, especially the older versions of the game, you'll probably love it. This is also great for playing on the go. Happy 30th Street Fighter!
