IGN: Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Review

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix doesn't have any frills and its mechanics -- while extremely well-tuned -- are simple. This is a game very dissimilar to modern fighters because it doesn't shower you with extra modes, art galleries or unlockables. It's admirably precise and meant for hardcore players, despite its increased approachability.

So HD Remix isn't for everyone, but the gameplay represented in this download is extraordinarily balanced and deep. IGN spent hours learning the ways of the retooled Fei Long and just barely scratched the surface of it all. For such a reasonable price of $14.99, HD Remix is a very hard game to pass up.

Hrm, why is there Goki/Akuma in the Menu even if he is not in Super Street Fighter Turbo 2 HD REMIX? :s

Tacki3831d ago (Edited 3831d ago )

What do you mean? It shows Akuma in the video! He is in the game.

Marceles3830d ago

Of course he's in the game, the original Super SF2 Turbo was his first's only fitting that they included him or else there would've been a riot

Is all I have to add ;)

Shungokusatsu AKA Raging Demon :) I'm a big Akuma player. :D

Oner3830d ago

One of the definitive reasons why Akuma is the most bad @$$ fighter ever. Hands down my strongest character in the Street Fighter series, especially in the MvC line.

A very solid score for a game that came out well over a decade ago. I mean, besides the graphics not much has really been done to the game so that's pretty impressive. Though I know some were looking for a bigger leap in this remake.

At any rate I am stoked and getting this the very first day it hits PSN! I simply cannot wait... and while SFIV is my most anticipated title... this will certainly be a nice little sum'n to tide me over till the 'main course' shall we say! :)

I might just download this after a solid review

The greatest fighting game ever created... I WILL be getting this on PSN its too good to miss out on... Seriously SF2 still seems perfect to me

This is gameplay at its peak with 2d Sonic and Mario. These are the games that gaming stands on put Wolfenstein and DOOM in there too.
