Another Street Fighter sequel (this time for Street Fighter Alpha) adds even more to the classic fighting series.

New characters in this version include Gen (a wise kung-fu master), Rolento (who you may remember from another Capcom classic, Final Fight) and Sakura, a young school girl who follows her hero Ryu so close, she has the same type of moves. Dhalsim and Zangief also return to the fight with some news moves.

The other major difference is the loss of chain-combos and the gain of a custom combo system. Once you reach the required level (which is 1 at the least) you can execute a custom combo by combining any of the buttons (which there are 6 in total) or any of the special attacks (fireballs, etc.)

Despite an admirable effort, Capcom's port of Alpha 2 to the SNES took some serious sacrifices, namely in graphics (characters aren't as detailed, and frames were removed from animations) and sound. There was also a small but annoying load time (?!) at the start of each round, and even then the game was slow, even when the speed was cranked to its highest setting.

Also, in another move in Nintendo's infamous censoring activities, the character 'Sodom' was renamed 'Katana', since 'Sodom' was too close the word 'Sodomy' (taken from an actual city in the Bible called Sodom, where people committed immoral sex acts). Even though Sodom's name (the character) is pronounced 'So-dum', not 'Saw-dum' (the place in the Bible).
