Did You Know?


In the original arcade version of the game, you couldn't play the same characters against one another. You couldn't do it on the Super Nintendo version either, but Capcom included a secret code that allowed players to do so. See more »


The flag of Spain (which appears for Vega's/Balrog's stage) on the map of the character select screen is incorrect; it's from Franco's regime (identifiable by the coat of arms), which was replaced with the present-day flag in 1975; sixteen years before this game was released. See more »

Simply one of the Greatest fighters ever made!!!
26 October 2004 | by (Bellflower, California, USA) – See all my reviews

Since Capcom released Street Fighter II in 1991, this game set the standard for all other fighting games to come. This game made Capcom a household name and became popular for many years.

In this game, you can pick one of 8 fighters: Ryu Hoshi, Ken Masters, Edmond Honda, Guile, Chun Li, Dhalsim, Zangief, and Jimmy Blanka. Guide your character through an international fighting tournament and defeat the remaining seven fighters. After these fighters have been beaten, you fight the 4 grand masters, which are the leaders of the international crime syndicate Shadaloo. They are Balrog (M. Bison in Japan), Vega (Balrog Fabio la Cerda in Japan), Sagat, and M. Bison (Vega in Japan). After Bison has been defeated, you find out your character's motivation for entering the tournament in his/her ending.

It's sad that some people think that SNK, another good company, made ripoffs of SFII. Their games are just as good as Capcom's games. My favorite characters are Ryu, Ken, Guile, and Dhalsim. Street Fighter II is definitely the best fighter ever made. Viva Capcom!!!!!

10 out of 10 stars. :-)
