SummaryDecent but let down by standard pad.
The GoodThe gameplay feels like Street Fighter still and the barrel mini game looks good in 3D. The amount of characters was large for a SF game at the time and still these days only has competition from SFA 3 and Marvel vs Capcom 2(both are superior games to be honest). The music is good to my ears anyway those who like J-Rock and J-Pop style music will enjoy the soundtrack. The backgrounds are nice too and having Guile in a game at this time was good as he had been replaced by his bland brother Charlie.
The BadVisually it offended some at the time never mind in as i right this 2007. Box fighter was one term used and it looks nowhere near as good as the amazing port of Virtua Fighter 2 on the Saturn that came out in 1995. It pales next to PSX titles like Tekken 2 also. The controls also stink if you are using a standard PSX or PS2 pad, If you use a arcade stick or the Street Fighter 15th anniversary pad(which is really a Sega Saturn Japanese/European and USA mark 2 pad) then the problem is fixed however.
