Summary

Good try, but no cigar.

The Good

Apart from the game structure, the only thing to like here are the graphics. Tiertex did a very good job converting the arcade to the computer in this aspect. The characters are huge, they are easily identified and they move smoothly, if too slowly, and the backgrounds are nice and detailed.

The Bad

The game structure of SF was some of a novelty when it was released, and indeed it has promise. Still, this being a first title in the series, promise is all its got to offer. The matches were too fast in the original arcade, and here, because of the hardware limitations, they are too slow to be any exciting. The sound and music are also mediocre. In fact, most of the time, the computer will remain silent.

The Bottom Line

Skip this one and, if you are interested in the series just start directly with "Street Fighter II". Not only it's a very superior game technically speaking, it's also much more fun than this one.
