Giant Bomb (Nov 30, 2008)
In recent history, re-releases of old arcade games has been a trend, but it's also been a real non-event. Most of these games received a quick coat of fresh paint, which usually made the game look worse. Things like online play are only included in their basest, most simplified form. HD Remix makes most of those older releases look like cheap cash-ins. It may cost more than most arcade updates available for consoles today, but with the number of important changes being made and its extreme attention to detail, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix sets a new standard for downloadable arcade games... even though I still think Blanka's face doesn't look quite right.
GamesRadar (Nov 25, 2008)
Unlike so many remakes of classic fighters, Turbo HD has soul. You can see it in detailed visuals, crafted by the awesome artists at Udon. You can hear it in the new remixed soundtrack, developed with the help of fans from Overclocked Remix. And you can feel it when you begin noticing the finer tweaks in Turbo HD’s special Rebalanced Mode, which was created with the help of some of the world’s top-ranked Street Fighter players. Capcom has reached out to its fanbase to deliver the kind of game Street Fighter fans want, and it shows in every pixel. For the reasonable price of $14.99 or 1200 MS points, we can’t recommend Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix enough. It’s definitely a must-have title for any self-respecting fighting fan. Period.
1UP (Nov 25, 2008)
HD Remix -- SF2's sixth iteration, shepherded and meticulously number-crunched by Backbone Entertainment's tourney-pro-turned-game-designer David Sirlin -- is the product of that nearly decade-and-a-half-long dissection. To casual players, HD Remix is a generous facelift with a few fun new moves, something to whet the appetite for Street Fighter IV. Ryu's fake fireball, M. Bison's brief window of immunity during his Devil Reverse, Guile's horizontal-angled roundhouse Flash Kick, T. Hawk's block-safe dive, and Chun Li's now-useful Spinning Bird Kick will all but escape the weekend warrior's notice.
Gaming Target (Dec 09, 2008)
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix should be the last we see of the Street Fighter II series; I mean how do you top this? Street Fighter III was perfected with Third Strike and I have yet to play Street Fighter IV so I can’t comment on it, but it does seem to be the future of the Street Fighter series. With HD graphics, a finely remixed soundtrack, and good online gameplay, your $15 is already netting you more fun than most full priced fighting games do.
What once was old is now new again and it still maintains that same classic gameplay that helped it to achieve its legendary status. Cue the Street Fighter theme song already
Worth Playing (Dec 25, 2008)
It isn't every day that a company takes the opportunity to update an old game, even when it promises surefire profits. Doing it well enough to attract more than nostalgic players has proven difficult, time and time again. Capcom knew that it could do better and took every decision seriously, considering factors some companies wouldn't even notice, let alone look twice at, and produced something far, far beyond what even my high expectations could have envisioned.
Gamer 2.0 (Dec 01, 2008)
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix is an absolutely excellent game, download or otherwise. It might not have much in the way of bells and whistles, but it has all of the really important things polished to a near mirror-like shine. Street Fighter II’s gameplay still holds up today, and this new re-tuned and re-drawn version is a must-download for anyone who likes fighting games in the least. It’s a properly updated classic, something that is very difficult to do.
PSX Extreme (Nov 30, 2008)
Downloadable games have long ago proven to be a worthwhile feature for both the PS3 and Xbox 360, and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD does nothing but help solidify the fact. The game is yet another solid entry for the PlayStation Network, and is also a superb way to spend $15. If you weren't around for the Street Fighter days or you've never tried a Street Fighter game before, you really owe it to yourself to do so. This HD remake reminds us just how timeless Street Fighter II really is.
Mania (Dec 15, 2008)
If you're able to look past the drama behind Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix's rebalancing, you'll be treated to a game that's absolutely worth the price of retail—that's selling for below retail. Street Fighter's famous roster looks great with the HD treatment, and much like horses who've been stabled for a long time, they're ready to flex and leap and show off. This is the perfect opportunity to start practicing for Street Fighter IV, so get to it.
UOL Jogos (Dec 02, 2008)
"Super Street Fighter II HD Remix" atualiza a apresentação de um dos maiores títulos da história, trazendo ainda um novo balanceamento e suporte completo para partidas online, mesmo que com alguns probleminhas - que podem muito bem desaparecer em atualizações - e a falta de outros modos. De qualquer maneira, é um jogo fundamental para a coleção de qualquer jogador de videogame que se preze e, pelo preço de aproximadamente 15 dólares, se torna mais do que obrigatório.
Maxim Magazine (Dec 12, 2008)
In terms of bang for your buck, you won't get much more better than this: 15 smackaroos nets you both the new and old version of the game, a training mode, tournament modes, leaderboards, 1080p HD artwork drawn by UDON Entertainment and online and offline multiplayer that is nothing short of fantastic.
Cheat Code Central (Nov, 2008)
At first glance, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix gives the impression that it's simply a prettied up version of a fighter you may have bought before or still own. However, there's more than meets the superficial eye here. If anything, it's a reminder of how keeping fighting games as simple and well balanced as possible results in play that feels nearly timeless. Established fans and newcomers alike will find a lot to appreciate in this downloadable title.
Game Over Online (Dec 16, 2008)
HD Remix is, essentially, a tournament player's attempt to fix Super Street Fighter II Turbo. It's a remake of a constantly remade game, and is hopefully the last SF2; I can't imagine anyone improving on this. If you spent any time at all on SF2 as a kid, on your SNES or Genesis or down at your arcade, this is a must-have nostalgia bomb.
GamePro (US) (Dec 09, 2008)
There's no doubt about it -- this is the best version of Street Fighter II that fighting game fans are ever going to get. Everything from the graphics to the tweaks in each character's moveset makes Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix feel like a completely new fighter rather than an updated version of previous SFII titles. Capcom's efforts really stand out in this remake, and after all these years, it's worth both the wait and the price.
90 (Nov 26, 2008)
All of the changes, all of the tweaks, all of the graphical upgrades, remixed music and refinements to the online experience make SSF2THDR one of the best remakes of a classic game in recent memory. Despite efforts to make it more accessible, it's clearly been designed for the hordes of Street Fighter fanatics that still pump hours into refining their combos and honing their strategies nearly 20 years after the first Street Fighter II game came out. This is one for the fans, and fans will absolutely love it. Take a bow Mr. Sirlin. You done good.
GameDaily (Nov 30, 2008)
While it lacks large amount of modes and options, the ones provided will keep you punching for hours. In addition, online play is excellent, with very little lag. Dipswitch options are also available, in case you feel like modifying your match-ups. Best of all, Capcom included the original Turbo in case you feel nostalgic. Fifteen bucks may seem like a ton of cash for a downloadable game, but this Street Fighter is worth the dough.
ZTGameDomain (Nov, 2008)
HD Remix is a superb edition of a timeless game complete with nearly flawless online gameplay. It is hard not to recommend this game to anyone who enjoys the genre and especially those who frequent the tournament scene. If you are simply a weekend warrior there are certainly better options that will offer you more bang for your button-mashing buck. If you love the series and take it seriously there should be no hesitation; for fifteen bucks SSF2THDR is an absolute steal for either console and the new tweaks will re-ignite your love for the game. Capcom has once again revived a classic and made it relevant for the next generation of systems. Now we can only hope SF IV will be the successor the series truly deserves.
Atomic Gamer (Dec 12, 2008)
If you've been planning to come back to fighting games and are looking at SSF2T HD Remix to break back into the community, then by all means jump right in. Just be ready for a workout, as the competition is very tough and you've got a long way to go to beat these guys with any kind of regularity. And make sure you get some kind of fighting stick, as the D-pad on the 360 and even the PS3 just isn't quite enough - and hey, it'll still be very useful with SFIV is released early next year. This is absolutely the best Street Fighter seen in years, but just be ready for a beatdown and you'll be fine.
IGN (Nov 21, 2008)
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix doesn't have any frills and its mechanics -- while extremely well-tuned -- are simple. This is a game very dissimilar to modern fighters because it doesn't shower you with extra modes, art galleries or unlockables. It's admirably precise and meant for hardcore players, despite its increased approachability. So HD Remix isn't for everyone, but the gameplay represented in this download is extraordinarily balanced and deep. I spent hours learning the ways of the retooled Fei Long and just barely scratched the surface of it all. For such a reasonable price of $14.99, HD Remix is a very hard game to pass up.
87 (Dec 10, 2008)
I enjoyed Capcom’s remake, as they did what seemed an impossible task to others: to successfully continue one of the best fighting series in history. Superb graphics, a musical score in tone with the atmosphere, balanced characters and great gameplay. What more can we ask for only 15 dollars?
GamesCollection (Mar 24, 2009)
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix dimostra ancora una volta come le vecchie glorie siano ben lontane dal tramonto. Questo gioco è un regalo di Capcom ai suoi fan, e per i nuovi videogiocatori rappresenta una buona occasione per gustarsi un capolavoro del passato. Una cosa però cara Capcom: adesso concentriamoci sul futuro. Non so se gradiremmo vedere un Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Delux EX Plus Alpha 3 Strike…
GameSpot (Dec 01, 2008)
It's hard to gauge whether the characters are as meticulously balanced in the Remixed variant as they are in Turbo, simply because there hasn't been enough time to test the tweaks. Still, the overload of edits are welcome additions to an already great game--and since you can drop back into the original Turbo at any time, you aren't forced to relearn your preferred fighter. The extensive alterations are wonderful, giving HD Remix the feel of a straightforward 2D brawler with all the sheen of a brand-new game that's capped off with Street Fighter's venerable depth and lavish presentation. Despite its minor issues, this is one of the finest iterations of Street Fighter to date, and one that any fan of fireballs and fisticuffs shouldn't miss.
GameFocus (Dec 09, 2008)
Even though we have had our share of Street Fighter remakes over the past 15 years, this revamped version remains the most interesting of all. If you haven’t bought a downloadable fighting game yet, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix might be the one to get but don’t expect a whole lot of changes besides improved visuals and a few balanced gameplay elements.
Game Revolution (Dec 03, 2008)
Until then, the online competition is still fierce, and while we wait for the inevitable HD remake copycats (like, say, Super Mario Bros. with every goomba and turtle still exactly where we left them last time), this Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix will ignite happy memories of arcades long since shuttered and relocated to our home console hard drives.
Gaming since 198x (Jan 23, 2009)
Très difficile d'accès, trop probablement, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix est une belle remise au goût du jour d'un hit légendaire à l'aura intacte. Il ne saura toutefois s'offrir qu'aux plus acharnés, ceux qui auront le courage d'y passer le temps nécessaire, les autres risquant bien vite d'abandonner devant la difficulté démesurée et le niveau hallucinant des joueurs online.
Norrköpings Tidningar (Feb 27, 2009)
För SSFIITHDR, som det får kallas hädanefter på grund av teckenbegränsningen, är så nära fightingperfektion man kan komma.
Gamereactor (Sweden) (Jan 05, 2009)
Något Street Fighter Alpha 3 eller Street Fighter III: Third Strike kommer Super Street Fighter II Turbo aldrig att bli. Och tyvärr känns det som att det kom lite för tätt inpå Street Fighter IV för att kännas riktigt stekhett samt att Backbone borde ha haft lite fler spellägen för nybörjare. Men för vad det är och på dess egna meriter är det ändå den ultimata versionen av den gamla klassikern. För de som inte gillar den nya designen (jag älskar den) finns möjligheten att spela med de klassiska pixlarna, musiken har nog aldrig låtit bättre och med de små justeringar som gjorts känns det som att Street Fighter II nu fått ett värdigt avslut.
JeuxActu (Dec 11, 2008)
Il n'y a pas de tromperie sur la marchandise avec Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix qui remplit facilement tous les termes du contrat. Backbone Entertainment est parvenu à mettre sur pied un remake fidèle à la copie originale, bien que la réalisation fera grincer des dents les puristes de la saga. Si le jeu en ligne se montre solide, c'est surtout le rééquilibrage du gameplay en HD Remix qui représente la plus grosse satisfaction d'un Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix décidément excellent.
Thunderbolt Games (Dec 12, 2008)
With all this time in the oven STHD should have exceeded expectations. The final product however is a mixed bag, with a lot of good ideas and a fair amount of poor implementation. The new graphics and tweaked gameplay could help usher in a number of new players, but the glaring bugs and gimped feature list will annoy the seasoned Street Fighter veterans. Fortunately for everyone, Street Fighter’s core gameplay still prevails and that is really all fighting games are about.
Gaming Age (Dec 18, 2008)
As the Street Fighter IV release approaches, it's nice to see a game like HD Remix hit the digital shelves. Not only will it hold us over until SFIV drops, but it'll also rekindle that SFII flame that has been burning since the early '90s. With all of that said, and while this is definitely the definitive version of Super Turbo, it's still just Street Fighter II with a makeover… a blessing and a curse. Those that love SFII and all its variants will most likely adore HD remix for the fond memory it conjures, but the rest of the gamers out there that still feel the sting of being hundred-hand slapped in the corner until death will most likely relive the trauma and hate Capcom/Backbone for re-opening that old wound. Take it or leave it, this is Super Street Fighter II Turbo as you remembered it.
I wouldn’t pay full price for this game. What I would do is find a good deal on this game, the purchase it. It is worth a shot for the story and a few neat features. But paying full price for what looks like an original Xbox game? It is a crime. (Dec 22, 2008)
I firmly believe that Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix is the fighting game of the year. It takes a classic formula and remakes it for a new generation to great success. Not only is it accessible to the casual Street Fighter player, but also has a level of depth and fan service that hardcore players will love.
