That's how I became convinced that it's the best core Street Fighter, with enough modernities and silky smooth gameplay to still hold up today, and nothing too complicated, like some may say Alpha's styles are. I get where you're coming from, and we'd probably agree on a lot. I'm sorry but I can't see why anyone would pay £35 for this when KOTF 98 and garou mark of the wolves are both 6.29 It's baffling but each to their own and if you get it, I hope you enjoy it. I'll get it when it's under £20, and if that makes me a 'baby' in some (deluded) people's minds, then to hell with them. Compared to fighting games theres less room for big drastic changes, since its mostly fighting and combos. Just because I'm willing to wait for a price drop doesn't mean the game isn't worth 60 bucks. Is there any chance that this game will get DLC? The audio has also been upgraded with new tunes (sadly not based on the excellent music provided by OverClocked ReMix for HD Remix) and freshly-recorded voices. Even if the controls for this mode were totally perfect, it wouldn't be worth more than a few goes; it's painfully shallow and not all that enjoyable. (Or in the case of people on this site, they may have never played III or the updated Alphas, especially Alpha 3, since they never released on a Nintendo console.). It's possible to play against people on your friends list (in the casual mode, at least) and create lobbies, as well as perform a "quick search" to get into a match as quickly as possible. Brand. I myself have only played it once but I have never owned it, hence why I'm buying this version. I will not, however, give a company as big as capcom a pass when it comes to charging too much for this particular product. Yes it feels overpriced, and I'd have rather just bought SSF2T for $12-20. @PanurgeJr Those are some fair points, i'll give you that. @Firehawke You are right, you didn't say that, my apologies. It’s based on Super Street Fighter II Turbo, arguably the best iteration of the game’s many, many updates, and the one favoured by most of fighting game pros. If this had only been a "low-cost digital download" I wouldn't have bought it. Also up until 2 weeks AFTER release Amazon Prime will knock off 20% ($32 retail) and that couldn't make anyone here feel too bad about that either now would it? On top of these you have the usual Versus and Training modes; the former allows you to take on a friend on the same console by detaching the Joy-Con controllers, but also supports local battles using two Switch consoles. So in this case, complaining about the old bonus stages is like complaining about no battle frontier in the generation three Pokémon remakes when they were based on the Ruby and Sapphire versions and not Emerald.At the end of the day, if the content and lack of old bonus stages doesn't justify the price just wait for a price drop or don't buy it at all. I haven't played SFII in spades since high school. I got my 8bitdo controllers reving to go! Janky, tacked-on FPS mode? Please don't pick Violent Ken...he must be made of magic or something! The real issue I (and several others will I am sure) have is that, aside from changes only hard-core street fighter fans will notice, the changes to this game are minimal. And now that Capcom has listened to the fans who want physical releases, the fans then complain that its too expensive. Games like this bring back memories and yours sounds memorable. There was only one fighter I played in the arcade back in the day, just a few times, and for the life of me I will never be able to remember which one it was. Of course everyone has an opinion, all I've been saying is it should have no bearing on a review. Basically paying for the convenience since I can't keep all 20+ of my consoles connected up at once......yet. And cartridge data is rock solid, WAY more so than disc-based media, so it'll last you a lifetime and with digital media, you're always at the whim of the developer, or the publisher. I played SFIV, I played DoA5 (or whichever was on 3DS), I played Injustice on WiiU. A good game or a bad game is just that. @Menchi187 Why embarassed? And whats the point of doing that when that game already exists, and even features SF characters. I'm probably going to skip this i might check out ARMS instead. If you want the game now and in portable form then it's still the same classic game but I think there is plenty of justification for questioning the value of the package. On a side note, when playing online the game doesn't separate "Lite" and "Pro" players, so it could be argued that those using the touchscreen shortcuts have an unfair advantage. Loved it and still play it on the PS3. Capcom's real problem is they have to keep milking the magic because they' can't figure out how to duplicate it. Its a game that mostly relies and focuses on the players skill. Instead people are going "Capcom over charged this 25 year old port and it should be cheaper" that is my issue, and that is merely entitlement saber rattling. But in my opinion, hardcore Street Fighter 2 fans like myself recognize that this is essentially a port of SSF2T and thus aren't expecting bonus rounds. I'm not a fighter fan. HDMI as well. Its SF2, its legendary and always will be for one good reason and thats that its the best 2d fighter ever created. @NEStalgia Well, personally, I think it's actually a nice change of pace for me, to be able to forego wanting to recommend a game to someone... @ThanosReXXX LOL! Many Nintendo websites agree with this saying it is a solid game while other reviewers dock it a few points for being a definitive version. @PanurgeJr In almost every other case I would agree with you, but even Damien mentions the price tag as a negative for what you're getting. we don't need (or want) the 3d fighter mode. I'd have to make physical a dominant enough game to warrant slot wearing from frequent switching. When you have games like Master Blaster Zero, which are full remakes, going for $10, you can't charge quadruple for something like this and expect people not to turn away in disgust. videos. I can't speak to the way of the hado mode because I don't really care about it but did SFII suddenly become not fun and terrible and nobody told me? And Nintendo consoles tend to more frequently get overpriced versions of complete editions, even when it launches the same time as other platforms. Capcom didn't care to update it when new versions came out on consoles, they abandoned the 3ds. I am in gamer heaven! @NEStalgia It could be either. It's perfect for on-the-go 2-player table top action, with the shared full screen experience, this will get a lot of use. Or rather, 10/10 for the base vs fighter, with points knocked off for horrible or pointless add-ons (co-op and motion controls) and gouging pricing. It's sad that this game is thought of as a lazy cash in. Just the pure, 2D game (without Way of the Hado) as a £20 download would have been irresistible. GET TOUCHED & DIE - Ultra Street Fighter 2: Ranked Online - Duration: 17:39. For 40 bucks you can grab 5 Neo Geo fighters! Hitman 3 - Cloud Version - Not Perfect, But Perfectly Playable, WRITHE - A Nintendo 64-Style Budget Blaster That Needs More Work, Wrestling Empire - A Love Letter To Pro Wrestling That Falls Foul Of Hilarious Bugs, Scott Pilgrim vs. Where as Mario, the thing that makes a Mario game is jumping and platforming, and thats it. A common theme from the readers are complaints about Capcom releasing multiple versions of Street Fighter II, by that point Super SFII being the third version for the SNES. It'll be more of a fun gimmick to use rather than a serious one. But then it is one of my favourite games of all-time. Considering that Capcom is pitching Ultra Street Fighter II as a major retail release, it's massively disappointing that we couldn't get at least one entirely fresh inclusion to the cast. SF does have less room for big changes, compared to like a Mario. Well, well, well... No surprises here then. No Turbo, no purchase! Gamers shouldn't purchase this or they will continue to drain their consumer base as they please. @Hikingguy Very true about the long lasting appeal. There is always amazin prime. @CosmicLight "Upgrades"Why does this sound like license upgrades from Adobe or Autodesk more than a video game? " At least that's the vibe I'm getting from this review in progress.What I feel many don't consider is that, believe it or not, there are gamers who have never owned or even played Street Fighter 2. I'm just glad the greatest fighting game of all time is on the Switch! Score pending. It does not look good (though it does look decent), this time Capcom has eventually flopped. Fight against the evil M. Bison in this cool classic fighting video game! Ya it's a little high, I acknowledge that, but I want it. Upon its initial launch in 1992 it captured the hearts and minds of an entire generation of players, triggering a genre explosion which would last for the remainder of the decade and birth multiple sequels, spin-offs and - of course - merchandising and multimedia opportunities. It's a shame, then, that Capcom has been so lazy when it comes to including new fighters. However, in the Dreamcast version of Super X the bonus rounds are present, and also in Super Turbo Revival, both of which I have played a lot more recently. Sure that is my prerogative, HOWEVER that doesn't change the "worth" of the game. Definitely not buying it. @Slim1999 Wish I could've grown up in the 80s for gaming. This game is about half the cost of full price in Canada and we are not known for getting deals, @Darius_Truxton Don't worry, I'm sure once the Virtual Console shows up and Capcom sees how this version "under performed" they'll try make the money back with every console port they can put on the Switch VC. Either way it's still pretty good value for money when compared to USFII:TFC. You're getting quite a lot of game in this bundle when you figure both the stand alone packages, but also the local and even more so the yet to be reviewed online components. With movies, a critic who gives a film one star and tells you to save your money isn't going to give it a second star for people who have a Netflix account and can watch it for no additional charge. This game saves your replays too, so u can watch them and study your fights later. Created by respected studio UDON, these pin-sharp designs capture the spirit of the original sprites, but as is often the case when upgrading existing imagery something's not quite right. My score for this USF II is............5/10 due to terrible Hadouken Mode. @PlywoodStick all I know is that SF2 on my snes is probably my most played game all fall time outside of Mario karts or rpgs , the alphas are good too I'd agree but SF2 still tops them - I can't even remember three ... fours ok - five is awful. There's plenty in the game to do and I've dug into it just a little bit so far. I only ever had one problem with an older phone and its head phone jack, but that was the only one, and that was many years ago. Also most people are willfully ignoring the changes made to this game. @nuke13 Except it isn't the same game. Also, really? Launching your opponent in the air then do combos. If you go "it is the same game as before" and then someone tells you why it isn't and then you go "but its the same game as before" You are looking for a reason to decry the game. So if you count the 2 new characters as a $5 add on, lets say the price should be 20. Totally worth it. The amazing Mega Drive 6 button pad and god-like Sega Saturn controller remain the best pads for this kind of game, but hopefully the upcoming Hori Real Arcade Pro V Fight Stick will prove to be a solid alternative for Switch owners. I think Damien has been doing this long enough to know better than to be so blunt, even if it did affect his score. A polygonal version with SFIV's models or a version that has future SF character in it would have justified the full price; the first person mode doesn't. Personally, I've played and I own enough of them to not care that much about missing out on this one, and would probably still not have bought it, even if I would have owned a Switch. I modded an Xbox to play SNES games including the Street Fighter series. Standards increase as time goes on, and every future game should be held to a higher standard. If you are buying this its for pure SF2 which is the reason I'll be picking it up £30 isnt too bad. Free postage. 4 product ratings. I mean I don't think this site would have given Mario Kart 8 deluxe a 10 if it had been priced at $144 (double the cost of Mario Kart 8 plus DLC), which then makes comparing USF2 and MK8D an apples to apples comparison. Also it includes all the DLC which I believe was 12 dollars when released. I can't wait for this game to arrive at my doorstep. Have a nice day. As such my perceived value of Injustice is lower. It is a revision with current net code and balance changes and new fighters. That's interesting. I said it from day one. $40?!? The mix of fighters is excellent - this alone must account for much of Street Fighter II's initial success – and each one is equipped with strengths and weaknesses that ensure that, in the right hands, every combatant is deadly. Manufacturing, distribution and the store's own profits all add up even if the game on the cartridge is actually very tiny or short. OTOH, Switch is shaping up as a nice little all in one arcade cabinet, so the game kind of feels right on it. And cps2 hardware also has suicide batteries. Just wait till september and watch the price drop ! I dont' like online gaming overall, but to play a few rounds, it's worth a get crushed and destroyed like I did in Puyo Puyo. Either way, removing them is stupid. Using perceived value is wayyy too subjective and skewed in favor of the consumer only (who doesn't want to pay anything if they don't have to) while ignoring dev time, work hours, and profit margins for the company. How about, if we disagree again, let's settle it like men online. I mean, it's not tecnically full price but still, no thanks. If this were eShop, not a chance. Again, you can drop back to the originals if you so wish, and it's even possible to mix and match, so you can have new audio, old visuals or the other way around. As a fighting game fan, I understand this version different then the previous release....however as I alluded to in my comment and a previous comment I made; unless you are a hard core fan there appears to be little difference, and the difference that is there is not worth the price. 6. The fact that you have only the most rudimentary influence over which special moves you perform takes it to a whole new level of pointlessness. ), As a huge SF2 fan so much if this game frustrates me. Case in point, Street Fighter II HD Remix is just plainly a better value than this latest SKU of SFII, no matter which way one slices it. , I'm not jumping on the retro train until the virtual console comes out, Considering its just SF2 AGAIN! The most recent is Ultra sf 4. I bought the game day one, and it was ready for competitive online play (aside from a few hiccups on the PC version) and thus its perceived value was 60 bucks (I bought the collectors edition actually) however people were ranting about the lack of a story mode or the number of characters, despite the core game being solid and fully playable/enjoyable. Doesn't matter what it scores. I hope this one online is decent. Please read our FTC Disclosure for more information. At least in my book. Maybe like that Hyper SF2 (the one that was on PS2 and eventually arcade) but with bonus rounds etc. Imagine they priced it at what it's worth, imagine how many copies they'd shift!! 3. Might get a physical copy for this one. Rather, the review should be thorough enough that the consumer, knowing both the quality of the game and its price, can put those two pieces of information together to determine whether or not it is worth a purchase. @Ryu_Niiyama parting the issue is that previous iterations of this game are readily available on half a dozen current machines, at a small fraction of the cost of this version. Flash memory is very cheap, and Nintendo is Macronix largest customer. Dialing things all the way back to the mid-'90s might seem like an unnecessarily retrograde step, especially when you consider the advancements and tweaks that have taken place in the genre since then - not just in Capcom's output, but in that of its rivals, like SNK. When my mother died I decided to play some Super SFII after I was done crying. 0045496420543. We get it, Jim. At this point a Darkstalkers 4 or Power Stone 3 makes more sense. Not surprised in the slightest. Reverting to the old graphics leaves you essentially paying £30 extra for online over a Virtual Console release. Super Street Fighter II - the new challengers (super street fighter 2 930910 Japan) 7,317 8 29 6 . I can't imagine spending more than $15 on it. You have companies putting a lot of effort and value into games (see Injustice 2) who yes deserve every penny of that $60. you won't be getting the best version, so I hope it doesn't paint the wrong picture for you on how good these games can actually be.
