What Gamespot Users have to say about Street Fighter Alpha

  • User Rating 7.8

    Although later Capcom fighters on the console easily surpass this game, it's still worth checking out.

    Street Fighter Alpha, as many will know is a pseudo-sequel of Capcom's famed franchise. The storyline itself continues just after Ryu's victory in the original World Warrior tournament, and continues ...

    Although stripped down substantially, its still a great port and fun for on-the-go play.

    Oddly enough, my first exposure to Street Fighter Alpha was on the Game Boy Color. Granted, the GBC hardware couldn't mimic the original SFA down to bare bones, but it did manage to keep the same qua...

    You just gotta play it to see how good it (surprisingly) is.

    Street Alpha Fighter for the Game Boy Color, is a port of the arcade game to the hand held, and while a little ambitious, and a little limiting, the game actually proves to be one fine fighter, and qu...

    The stripped content doesn't prevent Warrior's Dreams from being one of the best handheld ports in existence!

    Being able to port the look and feel of the amazing street fighter franchise to a handheld system as limited as the Gameboy Color is a very impressive feat. Capcom has done this successfully with Stre...

    If you intend on finishing the Arcade Mode with almost ANY chosen fighter, please confine yourself in a room first.

    Arcade games made the world go round in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. They still do, actually. I haven't lived very long yet, and I will probably never completely know the faces of classics like Super Metroi...

    Sure the graphics aren't that good, but most people aren't giving it a chance.

    This game is eveything the original home versions were, except for the graphics, but that didn't bother me at all. All the same characters and their movesets remain, as well as all the secrets like D...

    It brought some nice changes to the SF series and is a fun fighting game but has a small roster of characters.
