User Reviews

 
The best adaptation of the Street Fighter story.
2 June 2014 | by heng_bokeSee all my reviews

From the actors chosen to the music and the setting of the short films, this rendition of Street Fighter is better than all of the movies made in Hollywood. It was great to see the story as the focus and the history instead of just the fighters. Everyone needs to watch this and help these guys get the recognition they deserve for just loving the game and franchise as we all do! Hearing the Japanese was amazing and I hope they do a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th season. Storyline 10/10 - They stayed true to the Street Fighter Story. Visual effects 10/10 - The graphics and animations used were very accurate and didn't cheapen the films at all. Actors 10/10 - the choice of actors used were very good and the actors really held true to a real life rendition of these characters. Music 10/10 - The music was amazing and held true to the franchise.
