There are a number of differences between the original arcade version of the game and its pc port, which include:
Missing frames of background animation.
statues on Bison's level can't be broken
moves that needed all three punch or kick buttons to be pressed at the same time can now be executed with just the medium and strong buttons.
Bison's body dissapears after the Akuma/Bison cutscene (originally he remained on screen while you fought).
and the screen was resized (the arcade screen is 384 Wide x 240 High while the pc screen is 320 Wide x 200 High). This does not mean that the graphics were scaled down, they were in fact kept intact, so you end up with a smaller play area, and bigger looking sprites.
Also, the german version of the game has all the blood removed.
Super Street Fighter II Turbo is the first SF game to feature what everyone now knows as "Super" combos: enhanced versions of many of the fighter's moves which deal more damage.Since this game, nearly every Capcom fighter made has featured a "Super" meter of some sort or another.
In the Japanese Version of the Game Balrog's (the boxer) name is M. Bison. However, due to his resemblance to real boxer Mike Tyson, his name was changed to Balrog in the American Version. Also because of this M. Bison (shadaloo leader guy) is supposed to be Vega in Japan, and the Vega we know (claw and mask Spanish fighter) is called Balrog in Japan.
