Street Fighter Alpha 3 is a 2D competitive fighting game originally released by Capcom for the arcades in 1998. It is the third and final installment in the Street Fighter Alpha sub-series
When you’re fighting, you often don’t care about how the story goes, so this is a double-edged sword that gives you great information about each character with outstanding gameplay. You choose a name, and as you play through it, you will learn the story of the respective character you used.
There are numerous characters to choose from depending on your taste, and the animation looks great. Each of them carries a serious combo that will scare the opponent miles away. The gameplay is just fantastic. Movements can be executed with no problem, even if you’re just a beginner. You can still deliver that deadly combo of yours. Controls for each character feel solid, and you won’t have a problem familiarizing yourself with it. Although the gameplay doesn’t differ much from the previous installments of the series, it does offer more characters and difficulty levels. The gameplay even looks more fun and challenging compared to its predecessors.
This is also the epitome of all the different aspects of fighting games over the years. Combos, juggling, super moves, counters are all here, and in an excellent way.
When you choose a fighter, it won’t be a piece of cake to master him/her, and you may have to use the same character in training mode for some time to know all there is to know about each character’s unique style. With combos that can range from 2 to 20 hits or more, the enemy may be jelly in less time than it takes for the announcer to sound off a few annoying fraises. The sliding moves may create blisters on your thumbs in the first week, but that will change. The game is designed with excellently smart opponents who can discover if you are using a pattern. At that point they will defend against that attack, and so on.
