Gamervision (Dec 11, 2008)
Here's the only issue – if this game could be so masterfully re-created, so well crafted from a blend of original gameplay and much needed updates, all wrapped in a beautifully hand-drawn package that shines in high-definition wide-screen format – why can't every classic game be remade in such a way? If there is one issue with Super Street Fighter II HD Remix, it is that it makes me upset that every game remake can't be this good.
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)
But for serious players, those represent just a few of HD Remix's significant, game-changing tricks. Behind all the lush new stage backgrounds, hand-drawn HD character models, and remixed music is a fighter obsessively tuned to what the collective hive-mind of SF2 culture deems "perfection." Of course, it'll be a while before anyone's really scrutinized what all the mechanical tweaks mean for HD Remix's metagame -- are Balrog and Dhalsim (whose nigh-unstoppable throw chains dominate high-level SSF2T play) still the relative kings of the ring? Can the rebalanced (and once egregiously overpowered) Akuma finally stand as a "real" character? Do Cammy and T. Hawk still squarely define the bottom of the barrel? And will the hardcore enthusiasts stand by this new status quo, or simply retreat to the also-included SSF2T Classic mode?
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!
Retro Gamer (Jan 02, 2009)
Mindful of the game's original pedigree (it's possible to play with the original animations). Turbo HD is more than a case of a developer giving a title a quick nip and tuck and throwing it out the door. This has been crafted with genuine care and respect and our only fear is that is'going to get left behind once Capcom's sensational-looking port of Street Fighter IV gets released. This is how all games should be remade.
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.
Planet Xbox 360 (Dec 19, 2008)
Excellently implementing the new art and music, SSFII Turbo HD Remix is a superb fighter that will satisfy gamers until they get their hands on Street Fighter IV when it releases in 2009. The single-player is incredibly challenging as is the online multiplayer, so Capcom has given you the chance to reminisce with the beloved series once again and use any one of your favorite 17 characters from the roster. If you’ve never played the title in the past decade, the training mode will help you become familiar with the controls. With that said, you should not skip out on the best fighter of 2008 in the form of Super Street Fighter II HD Remix on the Xbox Live Arcade.
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.
Gaming Target (Dec 09, 2008)
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix is going to hold us over until Street Fighter IV releases next year and it’ll be an XBLA game we go a few rounds with for months after that. If you have an HDTV and if you love Street Fighter and if you still have $15 to your name in this economy, you owe it to yourself to download SFII Turbo HD Remix, even if it means skipping a meal.
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.
Console Monster (Dec 10, 2008)
For seasoned fans this is worthy of a purchase, but at 1200 MS Points, it is a little at the high end of the Arcade spectrum. It is a polished and solid remake from Capcom and what they have achieved fills a very impressive gap prior to the release of Street Fighter IV. However, if you already have versions of the game downloaded you might pass this time around, but it certainly packs a good punch and sets a new standard for LIVE Arcade remakes.
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.
Xboxdynasty (XD) (Dec 30, 2008)
Einige von euch träumen sicher schon seit Jahren davon, eine Super Street Fighter-Legende zu werden. Super SFII Turbo HD Remix ist eure große Chance, den Traum wahrzumachen! Die Bestenlisten sorgen allein schon für reichlich Motivation und falls ihr hin und wieder Besuch habt, trainiert zusammen und dann liefert ihr euch die spannendsten Kämpfe die ihr je erlebt habt. Trefft ihr online auf faire Kämpfer dann läuft auch hier alles reibungslos ab. Die Verbindung war in unseren Testmatches zu jeder Zeit stabil und hatten LIVE keinerlei Probleme.
Game Vortex (Dec, 2008)
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix is definitely worth the money if you are a fan of any previous Street Fighter game. If you have never played any in the series before, this would be the most forgiving and easiest to sink into. The online play alone makes the entire game worth the price of admission, because you will always have someone to compete against without having to adjust your strategies to compensate for lag. Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix is a great game and if nothing else, will keep you busy while you prep for Street Fighter IV.
Official XBox Magazine (Nov 26, 2008)
With HD Remix, it feels like you’re getting the Ferrari of 2D fighters — and it’ll cost you. The game is a moderately pricey $15, and while it’s playable with a standard controller, it pretty much demands a Hori Fighting Stick for the full arcade experience. But on both counts, the payoff is oh-so-worth the sacrifice.
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.
TeamXbox (Nov 25, 2008)
Although Xbox Live Arcade has been creating quite a stir with some of its original games, classic titles updated to SSF2THDR’s level are sure to be a part of this buzz as well. Backbone has added enough enhancements to SSF2THDR to easily make it noteworthy, not to mention worth its asking price; something that isn’t all that common with old ROMs brought to XBLA. If you’re looking for a great warm-up before Street Fighter IV is unleashed, look no further than Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.
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.
Gamestyle (Dec 01, 2008)
SSF2THDR is not only the worlds largest acronym, but also one of the showcases of the Xbox Live Arcade. This is definitely up there as one of the best versions of Street Fighter 2 available and will most certainly keep you occupied until the true sequel is unleashed next year.
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.
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.
ZTGameDomain (Dec, 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.
3D Juegos (Nov 27, 2008)
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix supone una oportunidad inmejorable para acercarse de nuevo a uno de los mejores juegos de lucha de la historia. El aroma del clásico no ha desaparecido, y se trata de una de las compras obligadas de esta recta final de año.
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.
Oldies Rising (May 07, 2011)
Car, ne vous y trompez pas : malgré ses défauts, ce remake n'en est pas moins un hit rendant un extraordinaire hommage à ce monstre sacré du jeu de baston. Reprenant une maniabilité qui a fait ses preuves pour l'agrémenter d'un aspect visuel de haute volée, Backbone Entertainment nous livre ici une copie de grande qualité qui ne laissera aucun fan du genre indifférent, en endossant un rôle bien plus important qu'un banal os à ronger donné par Capcom afin de faire patienter jusqu'à Street Fighter IV. Au delà de graphismes du plus bel effet, le gros plus de ce remake par rapport au jeu originel réside dans un mode online particulièrement jouissif et complet, pour peu que le joueur ait le niveau requis pour être susceptible d'y prendre du plaisir sans se faire bouffer tout cru par les gamers sans pitié hantant le X-Box Live Arcade.
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…
gameZine (UK) (Dec 15, 2008)
At the end of the day, this is Street Fighter, and if you love it, this will seem like some kind of retro dream come to true. If you don't, there's likely something wrong with you: go and see a doctor.
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.
Meristation (Nov 27, 2008)
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix es todo lo que podría haberse esperado de él. Una puesta al día de un clásico inimitable, que cuenta como mayor interés con un apartado gráfico de infarto, a día de hoy el más avanzado en un juego de lucha 2D, con animaciones de órdago y unos finales anime –aunque con imagen estática- muy trabajados, a lo que habría que sumársele el añadido del modo Online, la opción de reajustar los daños de los personajes, el selector de BSO (nueva o vieja) y la mejora del control.
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.
Games TM (Dec 24, 2008)
Taking HD Remix as a complete package, it supersedes Super Turbo as the ultimate Street Fighter II experience. It's far more than a mere rehash and champions all the diversity of Street Fighter fandom.
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.
Gamekult (Dec 02, 2008)
En jeu vidéo comme en bourse, on trouve toujours des valeurs refuges qui ne craignent pas la crise. Investir dans Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, c'est être certain de renouer avec un mythe du jeu de baston, remis au goût du jour avec efficacité, même si quelques choix purement graphiques tempèrent un peu l'enthousiasme. Plus que complet en termes d'options, et irréprochable sur la partie en ligne comme on était en droit de l'espérer, cette version dématérialisée a largement de quoi faire patienter les fans jusqu'à la sortie de Street Fighter IV. Qui sait même si elle ne lui fera pas un peu d'ombre...
Gameplanet (Dec 19, 2008)
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix is a great addition to the Street Fighter franchise and will keep dedicated fans entertained for a long time to come. Unfortunately though, new players to the title will most likely be deterred by the fairly steep difficulty curve in Arcade Mode, and the fact that the controls are never really explained. The graphics, audio and balance of the game have been greatly improved and with 16:9 support it just makes it that much better.
80 (UK) (Nov 27, 2008)
Still, we'd be boring if we never picked sides, so let's just say HD Remix is a worthy stop-off on the road to Street Fighter IV's console release next February, and a good training ground for anyone who wants to learn or relearn the Street Fighter fundamentals before then. In other words, it's time to brush up on your cross-ups and rush down some Ken-bashing scrubs!
Totally Gaming Network (Dec 08, 2008)
In essence then, the utterly superb gameplay and unrivalled feel of this iteration of the Street Fighter series makes it a nigh-on essential purchase, despite the slightly naff reworked graphics.
75 (Dec 05, 2008)
Bénéficiant d'une réalisation léchée, ce remake de Super Street Fighter II Turbo s'adresse aussi bien aux nostalgiques qu'aux débutants qui voudraient mettre la main sur ce grand classique. Cependant, n'oubliez pas que ce jeu se veut aussi élitiste que son modèle et réclamera de votre part patience et adresse, d'autant plus que la croix du pad 360 n'est pas adapté pour les jeux de baston. Et si le prix de 14 euros vous empêche de franchir le pas, n'oubliez pas que le mode online suffit à lui seul à relancer l'intérêt du titre.
NZGamer (Dec 09, 2008)
So, if you're not really a Street Fighter fan, chances are this won't convert you - it looks nice but still plays largely the same as the original. If you are a Street Fighter fan and you own a 360 (it's exclusive to the 360 outside of America), you've got nothing to lose by downloading the trial. Just keep in mind that the d-pad on the 360 controller is probably the worst thing since cancer (seriously, it's that bad) and that the game has a few issues that really do need resolving. If you're lucky enough to have a decent controller, however, don't let the bugs stop you getting on board - it's solid Street Fighter action to its very core. (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.
