This is just more of the same fighting game to me. But on the other hand, compared to the other Genesis version, this one controls twice as well. The new characters are pretty good, and the graphics are okay. They're just a bit dithered. The audio suffers from the Genesis limitations. If you want another Street Fighter II, fine, but don't expect too many new ideas. How's about a Street Fighter III?
Although Super SF2 looks and plays identical to the Super NES version, I must give it a lower score due to "the flaw." Of course this could only mean the voices. Yeesh! What happened here? Laryngitis strikes again. Other than that, you're buying another SF2 for four new characters and a couple of new moves. You just might enjoy this game with the volume turned way down, but it's more of the same.
Another year, another Street Fighter. I've heard this song before! Hopefully it will be the last time. The four new characters are a great addition, but are they enough reason to go buy the game? Yes, there are new moves for the other fighters, but there aren't enough to make it any different. Although the graphics are a good match to the arcade, the sound really takes a dive. It's better to turn down the volume.
You have to face the facts that Street Fighter II is the best playing fighting cart. However, the constant upgrading is getting a bit tired. The four new characters are a definite plus but it's hard to say if it's worth the cost, especially with Super Turbo not far off. SF fans will want to get the latest edition. It is an excellent port from the arcade with good graphics and sounds. The choice is yours to upgrade or not.

Game features:Single game mode
Directly on the heels of the arcade smash hit comes Super Street Fighter II for the Genesis from Capcom. At 40 megs, this new addition to the Street Fighter saga is the biggest fighting title ever to land on the Genesis. Look for new moves — from Ken's Flaming Dragon Punch to Ryu's Stun Fireball. New characters — from T. Hawk to Cammy. And new backgrounds — from Jamaica to England. And it has features that won't see the light of day on the SNES.
Genesis Beats SNES Hands Down
So what does the Genesis version of Super Street Fighter II have that the Nintendon't?
- How about five degrees of game speed (the SNES has only four)?
- The Genesis has Normal mode plus an Expert mode that lets you fight all 16 warriors (the arcade, the SNES, and the Normal mode put you up against only 12).
- The Genesis has a Score Challenge mode that lets players compete to see how many points they can rack up in a 30-second round.
- Only the Genesis lets you test your combat technique in a new Point Match in which the speed of each of the victories determines the winner on points.
- The Genesis version has 40 megs. The SNES has only 32.
Players can expect demo and ending Sequences that are very close to the arcade version (except that you won't have to feed the coin snatcher to beat the game and see the endings). Stay tuned to Sega Visions for more feature coverage of this fantastic fist-and-feet fighting frenzy.

Street Fighter...The Movie
That's right. Your favorite Street Fighter characters are coming to life on the silver screen. The casting battles have been fast and furious to find the right stars for the parts. Heading the crew will be kickmeister Jean Claude Van Damme as Colonel Guile (betcha didn't know his rank!). Raul Julia (from the Addams Family movies) as M. Bison, and Wes Studi (Dances with Wolves, Last of the Mohicans) as Sagat. While the full details of the movie are currently top-secret, you can bet that the plot will be thick with the cool battle action that has made the cart series so great. The big question is, will Chun Li be able to throw a fireball...
