Summary

Arcade goodness, as well as the SNES can do it.

The Good

Graphically, sound-wise, musically, control, everything's here that's on the 32-bit versions. All is good and is fun to play. Even the intro is completely here.

The Bad

Slower than the other versions, though can get used to it. What really gets me is this is a cart, and yet there's access time. On a cart? What? I thought the principle of the cart was to extend the basic elements of the game as simulated RAM, and the RAM would just keep things like the high score and other user-input data. But no, there's access right before every round starts, and that's annoying.

The Bottom Line

Still avoiding the optical disc revolution, then buy this game by all means. If you can get used to the access time, you can enjoy one of the best fighting games on the SNES.
