Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collection
Set some time aside for this...
Pros = ps3 comes with extra stuff, limited with 30,000
Cons = only 2 games on disc, a lot of downloading, cut version
Worth = preorder it if you don't have the games, other than that skip it
To start things off with. If you have some of these games skip this. If you got the xbox 360 version... why? When the ps3 comes with extra stuff. If you don't like ton of digital content in a collection then skip this. You only get Street Fighter x Tekken and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade edition on disc, but at least you get everything on 1 system. Unless you don't have enough gigabytes on your hard drive. Make sure you have at least a good 5 gb.
Be warned the "Street fighter 2 the animated movie" is vhs quality and it is the cut version. Also once you enter your code on PSN. You will have 194 stuff to downloaded individually. There is not a download all option for this one. I don't know why, but this will take you 15 minutes to 45 minutes to do all of this. This is not including stuff that you manage to background download.
So basically this is only a great value if you get the PS3 version and you don't own these games to begin with. So 150$ is a good deal with tons of stuff. Other than that.... NO! I'm not being a jerk. Just going to tell it how it is, but one thing for sure. I love mines and I am proudly box set number 16,840 out of 30,000 out there.
If we were just simply talking about gameplay, graphics, sound, and lasting appeal then this obviously deserves a 10, but we are talking about a box set/anniversary collection and it falls a little short, yet is still a perfect buy for some. So a 7 overall is befitting.
*******************Extra Stuff for the PS3****************************
You get all the above in the gamestop description Plus:
Street Fighter Alpha 1, 2, 3, and Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max PSP
Every Street Fighter III Third Strike add-on content
Over 170 Street Fighter Avatars
Great Value in a Collectors Edition
A lot of collectors editions that come out for the same price do not come with all of this content. Not that anyone would buy all of the dlc, but if you were to do so, it would cost very close to 100 dollars or possibly more. Also, at the time of their release, Street Fighter x Tekken was 60 dollars, Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade edition was 40, Street Fighter III 3rd Strike was 15, and I think Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix was 10. So just counting all of that, you are getting one heck of a deal. Not to mention the other things you get with the Anniversary Collection is just.. There is just so much stuff. No other game to this day has come with that much stuff, unless you really want to include what came with the Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2 big collectors edition, but even then, it was usually just one thing. Not everything that the Street Fighter Anniversary Collection comes with. I have this pre-ordered at my local gamestop, and i can not wait to get it and take it home with me.
i have played street fighter and loved it i cant wait 4 this game to come out it comes with a total of 4 games street fighter 2 street fighter 3 street fighter 4 arcade edition and even street fighter x teken its a great value it even comes with dlc for all games it even comes with a lit up statue of ryu
PS3 version is a must get!
Don't know why the description on how many games come in the collectors hasn't been updated, but if you get the PS3 version you'll be getting codes to download the alpha series, Street Fighter alpha 3 max for the PSP, and all DLC content for Street Fighter 3rd strike. So if your a Street Fighter fan, and want the best that this collectors has to offer, get this ASAP!
I can't wait
I will be getting this game. I just had a nerdgasm thinking about all the memories I have from past SF games. This will also be my first preorder so that should tell you something.
This looks like a must have for any fan of fighting games I also get another chance of beating my bro in street fighter II. he is not to familiar with the PS controller.
