Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition Review (EmptyLifebar)

"Capcom’s Street Fighter series over the years has been very successful. They have taken the time to go back to some of the older games and bring them out onto XBLA and PSN new, with online play, and HD boosted. Making its way through their older Street Fighter games, Capcom finally gets to one Street Fighter most people didn’t hear of or got the chance to play; Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike."

This game is pretty good, but no one plays ranked for some reason.

Yeah that was kind of a problem with SF2THD as well at the beginning. Great game though.

Maybe it's a problem with their servers or maybe people playing the combo and parry trials!!!! Who knows!!!

It's a fun arcade fighter. Brings back some memories but 5/5??? I my book not a single game deserves a perfect score. Not one is perfect.

Tito082177d ago (Edited 2177d ago )

It may not be perfect, but this Along with Alpha 3 is the best SF of all, a 5/5 doesn't necessary means a perfect score, it could also a way of saying a 9/10!!!!

Ares842176d ago

5/5 is a perfect score and should be given to a game which is perfect. 5/5 =/= 9/10. 4.5=9/10. So with that in mind I never understood how a game can recieve such high scores. What I noticed especially with scales of 10 is that if you substract 1 point of the score is closer to reality than what they actually give it. This game must have been reviewed by a huge street fighter fan because it's nowhere near as good as Mortal Kombat or Tekken 6.

Tito082176d ago

Well, IDK about the score subject then, but Tekken 6 wasn't as good as Tekken 5, Mortal Kombat is great BTW, but those games as well aren't perfect...

Thing is this game first came out 12 years ago, of course it is an old game, but it's being brought back, and I played the online for each of the games you mentioned, I'm sorry to say this, but the online in 3rd Strike is faster and more responsive than both Mortal Kombat and Tekken 6 for a 12 year old game, I wanted this game online a lot more than SSF2 HD Remix and every iteration of SF4!!!

I mean, don't get me wrong, both Tekken 6 and Mortal Kombat are great games, but they're not perfect, especially Tekken 6 which I didn't find much of an improvement over Tekken 5, and there's nothing wrong with a game like 3rd Strike to be as good as those 2!!!!
