Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: The Street Fighter III series ( New Generation , 2nd Impact , and 3rd Strike ) had a lot going against it when the games were first released in arcades. They had to compete with the increasingly popular cartel of 3D fighters on the market (Tekken , Virtua Fighter ), and not one but two other Capcom fighting franchises that had already captured the hearts of Capcom fighting loyalists ( Street Fighter Alpha and the Marvel vs .

  • Excerpt: If you were a fan of the game twelve years ago and you’ve been looking for a reason to get back into the game, Third Strike Online is a great reason.
  • Pros: Stellar online matchmaking, lack of input lag is a plus
  • Cons: If you didn’t like the game back then you still won’t, Default difficulty on Arcade mode is still insanely difficult.

  • Conclusion: To the game's credit, Third Strike Online features a decent number of offline training options to get new players up to speed on its intricacies. Apart from the stock-standard free sparring mode where you can set your AI opponent's basic moves, there's a specific mode just for parry. In this extremely helpful mode, you can "record" the moves of an AI character, before switching back to your own fighter to see if you can parry the attacks.
  • Pros: Tight, exciting gameplay, Diverse range of fighters, Good training options.
  • Cons: Difficult mechanics to master, No new character balancing, No way to choose region in online play.

  • Excerpt: In 2002, the Third Strike epidemic took the West by storm at the first Evo’s Japan vs. USA 5 on 5 – memorable for the crash course lessons exhibited by Tokido and Mester , showing the rest of the world the beasting powers of Urien and Yun. In 2004, Capcom answered the call of non-Dreamcast users with the release of Street Fighter Anniversary Collection , finally allowing players to sate their 3S hunger on the PS2 and Xbox.

  • Conclusion: To top it all off, 3rd Strike Online Edition provides a lick of paint that improve the dated visuals considerably. Not quite as beautiful or as vibrant as SFII Turbo HD Remix, the graphical adjustments do their job without taking the starring role. Capcom really have fine-tuned their beat 'em up to ensure there's something for everyone.

Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike – Online Edition Review

GamerNode
30 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike is known by some as the best Street Fighter game ever. It traded off the majority of the classic characters, brought in a new cast, and ushered in a more technical fighting system. This game is 12 years old and people are still playing it, so it makes complete sense that Capcom would re-release it with online multiplayer support (using famed GGPO netcode).
  • Pros: Great fighting returns in perfect form, Interesting visual options including arcade cabinet, Impressive online gameplay, Fun training and trials, Great experience/currency system
  • Cons: Online matchmaking can test a player's patience, Lackluster unlockables

  • Excerpt: Before Street Fighter IV hit the scene packing a megadose of nostalgia along with deep, fundamentally enjoyable gameplay and a stylish presentation, players who had been out of the game for years found themselves getting back into Street Fighter... and fighting games in general. Could this rekindled interest allow the overlooked and underappreciated Street Fighter III: Third Strike to stage an online comeback?
