Super street fighters II the new challengers
Hello there! I will be reviewing Super Street fighter II the new challengers! This is a great fighting game made by capcom made for the SNES, it is a sequel to street fighter II turbo and street fighter II championships and it was released in 1993. This is a really great game and perhaps one of my favorite street fighter games. So now then, on to the review!
The graphics for all street fighter games are pretty amazing and I like all of the character sprites and also the design for places such as the backgrounds for the stages you fight other characters. It all looks very nice and clear, the graphics for this game are all new and there are also 4 new characters to play such as DeeJay, Cammy, Fei Long and T. Hawk. All of the new characters look great and there are also all new sprites added for each of the playable characters in the game and I must say that they all look very nice and I am definitely impressed by the graphics in this game. I scored it a 9 because the new character sprites and background stages all look amazing, the graphics of this game are definitely well made.
The sound of the game is remade from the previous game and there are new audio voice samples for characters like Guile, Sagat and Ken. The announcer's voice is different also. Overall the sound is pretty clear and I think the music from each stage is great because it gets you in the mood for fighting and the music gets faster as the battle gets more intense which is awesome, that is why I scored it an 8, overall it is very well done.
These are arcade games, they are meant to be addicting, even if you beat it, you can still enjoy playing it and beat it again. This game's re playability is one of its most renowned features. The game is so intense and you get addicted by the game and you cling to it like a magnet. All arcade games are like this, they are fun and intense, but also challenging and fast paced, and all of these features combined make for a very fun, fast paced action game that is very enjoyable and becomes very addicting. For that reason, I scored the addictiveness of this game a 9. Once you play it and enjoy it, you become addicted and want to play it again. Plus it is an arcade game and all arcade games are like this, they make it intense and interesting to play which then gets you addicted to playing the game over and over again.
As in all street fighter games, on the path to victory and you become the champion fighter, there is a small story that follows after your victory and it varies for each character once you have beaten the game. The stories for each of the characters are pretty simple and they don't span across the entire game, they all have their reasons for competing in the championship to see who is the champion fighter. I am glad that the storyline isn't complex because it would get in the way of the action and purpose of the game, the main focus of the game is the fighting and the action, and I think it wouldn't be as fun if there was a long boring story in the way to get in the way of that. So the story is simple and it varies for each of the 12 characters depending on which one you beat the game with will determine the story that follows after the tournament. So pretty simple for the story, nice and simple and it doesn't get in the way of the gameplay of the game itself which is why I scored it a 7, it is just enough to enjoy the game and keep things interesting enough.
The game does feature a few modes, you can go into a versus mode with a friend or you can go into a tournament mode where you go against all of the other characters in the game to become the champion. You can also adjust the difficulty of the game accordingly if you think it is too easy or too difficulty. So I think it goes into a decent amount of depth since you can't test yourself and adjust the game to make it more challenging and interesting to play just by changing the difficulty setting. Plus you can play the game over and over and it never gets boring. I scored it a 6 for depth because you can do a lot with it and all of the modes as well, and it is just enough for the game to be interesting. So that is why I gave it a 6 for depth.
Honestly the game is not that difficult in my opinion, and you really don't have to be a street fighter expert to be good at these games, I mean if you have played one before then you know what to expect. Otherwise it is no big deal, just practice and set up controls you are comfortable with and practice making moves and combos and it will get easier once you practice. Sure it can be hard sometimes, (especially with Ryu and his hadouken) but with a little practice, that is all it takes and you will get better at this game and soon you will be ready to move onto a higher difficulty level. So I scored the difficulty a 5, it can be a little challenging, but then again all games are at one point and that doesn't mean you should give up and quit trying. So just give it some time and practice, and if you have played street fighter before, then you know what to do! And if you think it is to difficult, you can change the difficulty level in the options menu to make it easier. Overall, the difficulty varies depending on how good you are with street fighter games and if you are experienced and familiar with what to do that will determine how hard the game is for you, but I scored it a 5 as neutral because some players are better at it than others.
There is another mode in this game aside from the standard 1 and 2 player modes, it is an elimination where you face off against all of the fighters one at a time and they become eliminated. It is called tournament battle.
Then of course there is the standard 1 and 2 player versus mode and the 1 player tournament mode where you go against the other fighters like you normally would in a normal game f street fighter.
These have always been some of my favorite games, they are just so fast paced and fun and I think they are really awesome as well. I have always liked street fighter games, I think they are just awesome and fun at the same time. Overall, I had a great time playing this game, I think it is really exciting and this is the game for street fighter fans or for those who like good fighting games and action, this is the game for you. I had a lot of fun playing this game and I would definitely recommend giving this game a try. There are so many great things about it that make it worth playing.
