I went ahead and bought this game ASAP. That kind of conclusion jumping has failed me before, but not in the case of Street Fighter Alpha Anthology. Simply put this is the game of games for SFA fans. Alpha 1, Alpha 2, Alpha 2 Gold (not much too much difference between these first three games), Alpha 3 (includes the fabled Evil Ryu character),and Super Gem Fighter(known as Pocket Fighter to most of us in america).
The collective presentation is minimalist, but the 5 games individual presentation is pretty solid.
All the nostalgic glory of the original games is maintained nicely. Nothing really has been changed from the original releases they're still just as fun and challenging in '06 as in the early 90's. A new "dramatic battle" mode has been added(Two on One fights), and a few unlockables are available (maybe not quite enough if your a hardcore fan). But the fact that the entire Alpha Collection is on one disc should be enough for anyone.
The loading time is surprisingly quick, keeping a seamless SFA experience. And the saving options uses little memory and only a single slot for all the games.
The only complaints i could have is at times the A.I. seems just a bit repetitive with its projectile attacks and if you do buy the game the manual it comes with offers ABSOLUTELY NO help with specific moves, combos, and the unlockables.
9 out of 10... easily
ROUND1..FIGHT!...ENJOY

This is really a self-explanatory product: a perfect arcade port of the entire SFA series with the added bonus of Pocket Fighter (here renamed Super Gem Fighter).

For those who previously had these titles on the PS1, being able to play them again without load times is a huge boost. Plus it comes packaged with some of the cool single player modes that came with the console release.

But yeah, it's Street Fighter Alpha ... you probably already know whether or not you'll like it.

Great game, but couldn't figure out the hadoken with ryu on any of the games on here. I would do it, but wouldn't know how I did it so I gave up. My favorite games on here were Gem Fighters, SFA2 Gold, and SFA3. The other ones I didn't like too much. If you like SF games then get this one!
