  1. In the Xbox version of the Street Fighter Anniversary Collection, you're getting one of the greatest games of all time, a definitive iteration of a true classic, online play for both, a great anime movie, and several other bonuses.

    Not only definitive but also indispensible... Newer fighting games might be bloodier, flashier, or sexier, but Street Fighter Anniversary Collection offers purity and impeccable gameplay. [March 2005, p.80]

    Arcade perfect. The ports are very clean and faithful to the originals. No sign of pixelazation here.
  4. I think the package could have benefitted from the inclusion of the Street Fighter Alpha games, but that's more than made up for with the Xbox Live play and the extras.
  5. If you are looking for a slice of fighting game history then you won't find a better package than this one.
  6. If you love old-skool challenges and want to test your SF skills against the world's best, then this is the perfect collection. If only it came with a stained cigarette holder to clip onto the Xbox the retro feel will be complete.
  7. Catching up with Chun Li and chums is fine and the replay value is bolstered by the chance to play all the character variations but it's one strictly for nostaligia buffs. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]

    Having grown up on the Street Fighter series, this is a treat for me. Every version of every character is included from the whole Street Having grown up on the Street Fighter series, this is a treat for me. Every version of every character is included from the whole Street Fighter II series. I hadn't ever gotten into Street Fighter III before this game, and it is top-notch as well. The ability to play online seals the deal. Definitely worth the measily $30. Expand

    You get 2 outstanding games and a movie, but this is a pretty barebones package considering it's the anniversary "collection".

    Good compilation. Could have been Better. Where is the Alpha Series ? I guess I'll have to find a lucky person on Ebay to Buy those. Good compilation. Could have been Better.
