Street Fighter 2 is one heck of a game. It craps on Ocean's WWF licence from a great height. If this is to set the standards for beat-'em-ups of the future, then Hulk Hogan and his cronies couldn't even get a look in. The huge, well-animated sprites and excellent gameplay make this a game to be reckoned with. Go and discover what all the fuss was about.
[Budget re-release] The answer is almost certainly that versions of Streetfighter 2 have just‘ been released for both, ahem, consoles, so it would seem US Gold are cashing in on their own hype before Christmas. Good luck to them too, because games of this quality at this price don't come around often.
To be perfectly honest Street Fighter II was a project that should never have been undertaken. However it has and the programmers have pulled out all the stops. Surprisingly the graphics and sound are incredibly similar to that of the arcade machine. But it's not all smiles because the gameplay isn't particularly good - still you can't have everything.
The Atari Times
Street Fighter II is an excellent game. Although the ST version does suffer in a few areas it's a decent port. I do suggest you get it to at least see the efforts put into it but if I had to choose between this and another port (choosing the arcade isn't fair) I'd still pick a full colour port.
