    Offers a wonderful compilation of classics. Each game performs as well as you would expect, upheld further by neat additions such as online play and a range of filters. That’s not to mention its interesting history-rich museum mode. Sadly, not all of the games within get to enjoy these modern features, though with that being said, there’s absolutely no denying its value for content.

    For anyone who has grown up playing any of these classic Street Fighter titles, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is absolutely essential.

    The perfect homage to a series of true fighting game greats, the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is essential.

    A great compilation that lacks a bunch of extra possibilities to be the kind of homage that this series deserves.

    This is a fantastic package. While there are some things that annoy me, it is impossible to recommend a better collection of these games to date. The addition of online for select games and the inclusion of some truly obscure ones makes up for its deficiencies.

    It won't satisfy every specific demand, but it's still a big collection of awesome games and behind-the-scenes content that no Street Fighter fan should miss. Street Fighter is a series worth celebrating and Digital Eclipse has managed to do so in a manner that feels respectful to the series and to the people who keep the spirit of arcade battles alive.

    In the end, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is a respectable package that will doubtlessly tug at the heartstrings of longtime fans, but falls a bit short of being a truly complete package. In addition to the spotty netcode and bland interface, there is also some notable versions of these games that are missing.

It's fun to see the evolutionI've been waiting years for this; a Street Fighter compilation of the arcade versions for modern home systems. It's fun to see the evolution of the series from the first game to Street Fighter 3: Third Strike. I play with a Hori arcade stick fitted with Sanwa buttons and it's a joy. Also, I must confess, it's fun just letting it run in Attract mode in my office while working on other things :) It's truly a celebration of the series and has been a long time coming. I wonder, though, if this will be the last time we see it in its original arcade resolution as time appears to have finally caught up with it and the games' assets are pixel-y on modern displays. I use the arcade filter and play on a 4K screen on the Xbox One X, and it looks fine - that's just how games looked on screens back then. I'm glad they preserved the graphics so that younger players can see what these titles looked like back in the day. I think Capcom found perfect time to release this compilation. Thank you, Capcom, you answered my prayers - I love it. Expand

    Street Fighter was probably one of the first games that I played growing up and playing these types of game’s in arcades brings back a lot ofStreet Fighter was probably one of the first games that I played growing up and playing these types of game’s in arcades brings back a lot of fond memories, so as you can imagine I was excited to get to grips with Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. Thankfully this collection is absolutely fantastic and the thought and effort that’s been placed into it makes the memories I spent playing these game’s as a child come flooding back even more, which is awesome. Each game that’s been put into this collection has been done really well and at times you forget just how old these game’s are. Most of them have aged extremely well and the only game that feels a little out of place is Street Fighter I, but obviously I can understand why it’s been included. I was very interested to see how the controls would work on the Xbox One, and thankfully they’re perfect. The controls remain fluid and responsive throughout your time with the game and this is very important because along the way you will have some very difficult fights. I will admit though that I was a little rusty at first so that might explain the high difficulty curve because when I got used to the different game’s quirks again things did start to become easier. In terms of content there is more than enough to keep you satisfied and the added online components were something that I was very eager to try out. Obviously back in the day there were no online modes so playing these game’s with different people around the world was a very thrilling experience, and the best thing is that I hardly bumped into any problems when playing the game’s this way. Without a doubt one of my favourite things about this collection was its interactive timeline. There is lots of information on each character available to you and reading up and checking their moves along the way not only made each game immersive but it also made each game interesting as well and in a way this made playing through each game like a new experience. I was always a fan of the presentation side of things with each Street Fighter game back in the day so I was looking forward to seeing them again. Thankfully they’ve done a great job with both the visuals and sound design and most important of all they’ve kept everything retro, which of course made me experience even more nostalgic moments. At the end of the day even if you’re only a small fan of the Street Fighter series then I fully recommend that you treat yourself by purchasing Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. Obviously if you’re a big fan of the Street Fighter series then this game is an absolute must buy and you’ll be pleased to know that they’ve done the series complete justice and in a way breathed new life into these classic fighting game’s.

    *TIME SAVER REVIEW*

    Gameplay - All of the best SF titles in one place, pretty straight-forward. Online support for three SF2 variants, SF Alpha 3 and SF Third Strike. Seamless jumping between games in lobby, with options to spectate. Custom control configurations and typical arcade settings abundant.

    Graphics - Fluid and with few breaks in frame-rate, all games look preserved well - with no added adjustments to pallets beyond vibrancy of the colors.

    Sound - All original soundtracks are here, sound is crisp.

    Other: Still doesn't feel quite right with an Xbox controller. That's not a slam on Xbox (I love their controller), its just a bit too crunchy on the d-pad and I noticed some latent response in the sticks.

    Verdict: A perfect companion for those of us that grew up with the late 80's classic fighter. All the best of the franchise is here, and this is the smoothest I have seen servers for these classics in a long time. 8/10

    I am so upset right now I brought Street fighter 30th Anniversary on XBox One, i ahve not been able to play this game yet.I took the game backI am so upset right now I brought Street fighter 30th Anniversary on XBox One, i ahve not been able to play this game yet.I took the game back to Game Stop were I brought it, after I exchanged it the issue still occured.This game will jot allow you to play on one player for some reason. When you chose to play Arcade mode it only allows you to watch thge CPU Vs CPU. I believe this is a manufacturing issue and I was told by multiple people I may need an update to fix my issue. i hope whatever the issue is it gets resolved fast i want to play my damn Game! Expand

    Bare bones arcade ports with input lag issues and poorly implemented practice mode.
