    Agreed.
    Special Champion Edition was better in both graphics and sound. The voices became even more scratchy and the reclouring of the backgrounds is just awefull. The 4 additional fighters don´t come close to the balancing of the original cast. IThe super specials and the combos are the only good things about SSF II. So I rate it lower than SCE.

    Even Tempo, a cartridge, had Q-sound. Q-sound is nothing special at all in any way, shape or form.

    I am very surprised to hear the SNES version is even worse than the MD version, except for the voice samples.

    I can´t remember the sound, but visually the SNES-version is better than the MD-version (although still inferior to it´s predecessors), and gameplay-wise it´s equal.

    The MD version has five speeds, the SNES version only four.

    I never said it was special, just that CPS2's sound hardware was based around "Q-Sound", and more importantly was SAMPLE-based which is one of its notable enhancements over the CPS1 (Faster 68000; from 10 to 16 Mhz, faster Z80 sound CPU; from 4 to 8 Mhz).

    Capcom apparently tried to use digitized music/sfx on the Genesis music, and it just didn't work out or rather came out sounding like cack. It seriously sounds like Master System FM music in some spots.

    But the Genesis port does contain most if not all of the coin-op's sound samples unlike the SNES port, and the voices and sfx while scratchy (not as scratchy as SCE though) sound clearer/crisper than the SNES' perenially reverb/muffled sound. But that's probably the price the SNES always paid for using digitized music/sfx. The Genny port also has music that plays through the rounds like the coin-op, while the SNES' music re-starts after every match. Also of note, the Genny has 4 star speeds while the SNES only has 3.

    The SNES port's graphics whoops the Genny port on all fronts except for resolution and slight animation loss (on the Ryu intro mostly). Way more color, supposedly near or at the 256 color mark, better color choices, and (notable on the DAMN COMPARISON VIDEO I POSTED, it's not my creation though) more parallax on the stages.

    But nobody cared none the less except for EGM and GamePro, as the ports bombed in sales and the minuscule improvements and high price point for a port of what even the developers themselves admitted was an incomplete upgrade (Super Turbo was originally to be the game to come out after Hyper Fighting, and Hyper Fighting was mostly created in the first place to curb the SF2 bootlegs, so the ideal Capcom SF2 release pattern would've/should've been: World Warrior>>>Champion Edition>>>Super Turbo) was not worth the investment.

    Yeah, and SCE had 10 speeds. But who cares, the higher speeds are no fun to play anyway.

    the snes version went fast enough,the music suck in all versions and the Gba sucks most with its gameger sound.Gba sucks anyways their only a handful games on it that are good.The genesis version is a big dissapointment they always called it the inferior snes port.

    Great review Vinny. I completely agree with pretty much everything you say. As a Street Fighter II addict, I'm truly jealous that you got to this review before me

    MK is unplayable. It was a fad because of its gore, and it only perpetuates thanks to nostalgia.

    This is a very true statement.
