Street Fighter 3rd Strike
Street Fighter 3 series has been criminally overlooked. The problem was
that Capcom put the game on their CPS3 board [all previous street fighter
games were on the CPS2 board]. This meant that arcade owners were
reluctant to buy the new hardware to play this awesome game, but now with
Dreamcast, you can!
returns for what should be the final time. She has realised that in this
violent world children are becoming lost [emotionally, I mean. They can
still go to the shops and stuff without losing their way]. She also
believes that this new threat -GILL- is the cause and by destroying this
threat everything will be okay.
new character is Twelve, he is the next generation of the Necro. Twelve
has the ability to morph into its enemies, imagine that the T1000
copulated with the Stay Puft Marshmallow man, the result would be Twelve.
standard modes are included, but not as many as Street Fighter Alpha 3.
However a brand new mode has been created exclusively for Street Fighter
3: Third Strike [SF3:3S], this is the system direction. The system
direction allows you to change many of the games technical aspects. In
short you can alter the game style to suit your play style, features such
as block damage, recovery time and the hit ratios and charge time are all
changeable. [For the complete list see my system direction
new Street Fighter feature is the ability to choose your next battle, from
a choice of two. So now you can avoid the difficult battles. However after
each battle you are ranked on your fighting ability, this is a good
additional as it adds lots of replay value.
the game is a conversion of a CPS3 board game, it runs in high resolution
of 640*480 - that’s twice the resolution of Street Fighter Alpha 3. This
results in high definition characters and more frames of animation. All
the characters in SF3:3S play differently, there are very few ARK [Akuma,
Ryu, Ken] characters which makes for a better game as there are character
styles to learn. All the characters are great, but my favourite has to be
Elena, she never stands still! Also that win pose she has when she bends
over is amazing, it will bring a smile to your face.
SF3:3S has really experimented with its musical score. It has a theme song, not to unlike Ally McBeal - however this theme song is rapped by some American guy. So excellent lyrics like "Check it out y'all What's it gonna be, Trapped in the new world of Street Fighter 3!" may make you cringe. Unlike the previous Street Fighter 3 World Impact game the sound effects in SF3:3S are incredibly clear, the characters are very talkative and the echo you get when you both play the same character is not as bad as previous versions. The background music is very atmospheric and fits the scene well.
graphic design of SF3:3S has altered a lot from the previous 2 games
in the series. The images you get when you win are gone, so now selecting
Elena just to see her on all floors when you beat her. The new images show
your chosen character in his/hers selection art pose. Also the backgrounds
although well drawn seem to lack some of the colour of Street Fighter 3: 2nd
Impact Giant Attack, and lastly the characters do share stages. This
frustrates me as it kinda disperses with the whole world warrior ideal of
the Street Fighter series. The stages do come in Night and Day versions,
or Day and Night if you are Billie Piper.
Fighter 3: Third Strike is the best of the Street Fighter 3 series and in
my opinion the best Street Fighter game to date. In short Street Fighter
is and always has been a 'fan' thing. If you don't have a 2D fighter and
you are hankering….that's hankering for a good tactical fighter then buy
this. Those of you who have Street Fighter Alpha 3 and enjoy it should
just stick to it. Street Fighter 3 is more tactical and the whole fighting
system is more tight than the super move reliant 'VS' games and to some
extents the Alpha series.
"Street Fighter 3 Third Strike: Fight for the future, is excellent..no other game as such comes close"
