Summary

Classic Fighting Action

The Good

Capcom made a great offering with this title. Instead of going with the usual Street Fighter release, they came up with an entirely new cast of characters each very unique, yet not-so farfetched either. The fighting action is extremely gripping, and then when you throw in all the extras Capcom added in with the Evolution disc, this game is one of Capcom's best on the Playstation.

The Bad

The controls are somewhat irresponsive, but once you master them, you can time everything so that you can pull things off when you need to.

The Bottom Line

Rival Schools can only be described as a 3D Street Fighter with different characters and options.
