ALL-TIME CLASSIC. FOR SONY PLAYSTATION VIDEO GAME
SYSTEM. SUPER FUN. GREAT FOR COLLECTORS. HERE IS SOME
INFO ON THE GAME. The third in the Alpha series has a total of 31
fighters, the most in the series so far. New characters include old favorites
E. Honda, Blanka, Vega, Cammy, T. Hawk, Dee Jay, Juni and Juli. Some
of the newest fighters on the block include a former Final Fight character
(Cody, who has been in jail since the last Final Fight game, or so his
clothing suggests), Karin Kanzuki and Rainbow Mika.
The major difference between this Alpha and the last two are the new play
modes World Tour, Arcade, VS, Training and Entry.
World Tour - Simply choose your fighter and travel around the world,
fighting the home town heroes that you run into. The more fights you win,
the stronger you fighter becomes. You can also learn new moves, and
there are three levels of Super moves to choose from before you start
each round (called Isms).
Arcade - A simple conversion of the arcade version. Beat each fighter with
your chosen warrior, in three rounds per match (much the same as past
versions of Street Fighter)
Versus - Two human players battle it out.
Training - A good way to learn all the super moves that are available,
against a dummy.
Entry - If you save your character during the World Tour mode, you can
upload him here to use in the other modes in the game (especially handy
Finally, if you complete certain areas of the game three new fighters
become available, including another old favourite in Guile, Evil Ryu and

Personal Review: Street Fighter Alpha 3
Alpha 3 is the culmination of everything Capcom had worked towards with
their fighting games. Everyone knows Capcom has the habit of sticking to
similar concepts for several games in a row (Mega Man, Resident Evil,
etc), but in no other case has the last game in a series before a major
change been so fulfilling.
Street Fighter Alpha 3 is (in my opinion) the best Street Fighter game
available (including the recently-released SF2 HD Remix). The gameplay
is a blend of the slow-paced and strategic Street Fighter 2 and the more
varied and frenetic Alpha series. Air combos, alpha counters, and flashy
finishing moves combine with superior character balancing and deep
The main "arcade" experience can be brutally hard, as it would be in the
wishes of any Street Fighter fan. The two-player experience is also
extremely fun, as players new to the Alpha series can choose different
fighting modes, one of which (X-ism) is more aligned with classic SF2
balancing. Other modes include A-ism, the Alpha standard, and V-ism, a
mode that enhances a player's ability to chain standard and special moves
together for lethal damage.
Alpha 3 introduced an incredible World Tour mode, enabling players to
tour the world (if you will) fighting various characters under various
conditions. These tasks may be as simple as defeating an opponent to as
complex as defeating three opponents with only super combo moves whilst
your character is low on health. Completing these objectives unlock
abilities that can be linked to your character, such as automatic blocking,
taking zero damage while blocking, infinite guard, and more. On top of
that, characters built up during World Tour mode are playable in other
many of the other modes.
The other gameplay modes include training, boss battle, survival, and
more. Two-player battles can also accommodate multiple player
characters, in both versus and cooperative (ie P1 and P2 vs C1 and C2, or
P1 and P1 vs P2 and P2). Two-player back in the days of SSF2:Turbo was
the only way to play, but Alpha 3 dramatically increased the available
options for single players. These lend towards the game's long life, as one
player can play in various modes ranging from standard arcade style to
fighting bosses to survival mode and more.
In essence, Street Fighter Alpha 3 defines fighting games of the
Playstation era. It is a smooth balance of speed and strategy. Though the
graphics are dated by today's standards, two-dimensional games tend to
age gracefully, and this game is no exception. Street Fighter fans owe it to
themselves to own a copy of Alpha 3, if not to check a popular franchise's
history, then to own the best Street Fighter game ever made.
