The movie still rocks, but the game sucks
I get it why some movie critics hate video game movies (sometimes). Whether they haven't played the games yet or they still making money at the box office. I thought the Street Fighter movie was awesome when they put an all-star cast like Jean-Claude Van Damme and Ming-Na. I also gave praise to the late Raul Julia, who did an excellent performance playing the evil M. Bison and sometimes it's just too hard on playing a bad villain in a movie role. It's career suicide. But the movie and the Street Fighter II Animated version is a must-see if you already own one. I got them on DVD.
Street Fighter: The Movie is just another bad taste on putting a successful 1994 movie and transferred into a video game. Here's the reason why the game is terrible.
1. It's a Capcom-produced game (not Acclaim, nor Midway).
2. The characters look digitally alike as the ones from the original
Mortal Kombat game.
3. The graphics, music, sounds, and Ryu's Hadouken will make you
wanna throw the game into a landfill of broken discs.
The Bottom Line
Not only is Street Fighter: The Movie the worst video game movie, but the video game version based on the movie should've been played during the failure of Atari's Jaguar console (for around $5 bucks). The Street Fighter franchise is still going strong after all these years, but they made the first and only big mistake they had to plan. I wonder if Capcom could be celebrating 30 years of the good, the bad, and the mediocre of the 80's and 90's altogether.
