Continuing to build on the best, Capcom pushes the envelope again in the Street Fighter series. With a custom combo system and new fighters, moves, and backgrounds, Street Fighter Alpha 2 delivers a new but familiar level of fun.

Revision of a Revision

Street Fighter Alpha 2's characters blend more of the old with the new. Returning from the original SF is Gen (Chun Li's master), who has two sets of fighting styles you can switch between any time during a fight. Back from SF 2 are Dhalsim and Zangief. Both are completely re-animated with some new moves and awesome super moves. Rolento (a boss character from Final Fight) has military moves but plays much like Vega.

Completely new to the SF series, Sakura is said to be Ryu's biggest fan, but looks more like his twin sister. Sakura has all of Ryu's moves, as well as matching head and wrist bands.

The graphical improvements mainly involve the backgrounds. Each one has been completely redone; they've never looked better. The detail of sharp, vibrant colors reaches a new level of beauty.

New Tactics

The big change to the game-play is the combo system. Linking moves disappeared just as suddenly as they were implemented in Alpha. The main combo system now plays like SSF 2 Turbo, where players can jump in with a move and then go into a two-in-one combo.

Now players are treated to custom combos that perform similarly to the super moves. By simultaneously pressing three buttons when your super bar is full, you get a limited shadow combo. In the shadow's small timeframe, players can hit any button or special-move combinations to score high-hitting combos. The faster you hit the buttons, the more hits you can score.

More of the Best

Alpha 2 offers the best of both worlds with two combo systems and a fresh mix of old and new characters. Now if Capcom would please put a "3" at the end of the title, we'd be ready to go.
