Les graphismes, superbes et bien détaillés, changent en fonction du pays dans lequel on combat (Chine, Angleterre, Etat-Unis...). La taille des personnages est impressionnante, puisqu'ils sont plus grands que dans la version arcade (proportionnellement au format du téléviseur, bien sûr!). Malgré cela, l'animation reste à la hauteur (bien qu'il semble manquer quelques mouvements aux combattants). Le plus fantastique reste, bien entendu, les différentes bandes sonores et les bruitages accompagnant le jeu, qui sur tous les plans sont irréprochables (CD-Rom oblige). Un jeu sur PC Engine qui aurait quand même pu être meilleur, si l'intérêt avait été rehaussé. Cette version reste donc fidèle à la version arcade, mais ne la dépasse pas.

Long before Mortal Kombat, Fatal Fury, Samurai Shodown, Tekken and Tobal ... there was the original Street Fighter, a terrible playing arcade game from Capcom. While most people consider Street Fighter II: The World Warriors to be the grandfather of fighting games, it's this original Street Fighter (known as Fighting Street on the TurboGrafx-CD) that should get all the credit. But it doesn't and for one very good reason.

The Video Game Critic
The background graphics are dull and static, and the muffled voice samples are hard to stomach. When the losing fighter collapses to the ground in defeat it sounds like someone dumping Jello into a bowl! The gameplay itself is similar to the Street Fighter 2, but much slower and less refined. Two buttons are used for kick and punch, and jumping and blocking (both high and low) are executed using the directional pad. The three special moves include the fireball, dragon punch, and a turn kick. Other similarities to SF2 include the look of the title screen and the world map screen with the tiny airplane. Fighting Street isn't very good, but it laid the groundwork for better things to come.
