Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Delivers Online Street Fighter Goodness in HD!

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix (a rather unnecessary title, but oh well...) just hit Xbox Live Arcade on the 25th, and it's an essential download for any fan of 2D fighting. Not only does it contain gorgeous new high-definition visuals (still in glorious 2D form), it also features tweaked gameplay and addictive online play that will have you competing against strangers across Xbox Live for hours.

Some of the achievements are clever and tricky, such as one where you have to complete a seven-hit combo. Others include winning 100 ranked matches online and throwing your opponent ten times in one match.

The game costs a messily 1200 Microsoft Points, which amounts to $15. For the amount of replay value and fun HD Remix game provides it's well worth it - many recent full retail games haven't been this enjoyable.

To top it off, the beautiful remixed soundtrack adds to the experience and there's a standard edition of Street Fighter II thrown in for nostalgic value. Overall, if you're a 2D fighting game fan with Xbox Live then this should be an immediate purchase.

Super Street Fighter II: Turbo HD Remix is also available on the PSN Network (Playstation 3).

Between the PSN and Xbox Live version, what is the difference in price?

It's the same price on both consoles. Gonna give it a download?

I don't know yet. Right now, I am busy with other games like Mirror's Edge and Fable 2. I might even play some Left 4 Dead.

Does it look like a flash game?
I know it sounds like a silly questions but when ever I see stills I just think it looks like someone has done it in flash.

Koobs, you're actually not the first person to mention it looking like this. I personally think that they did a very good job with the visuals, and if you're curious about how it looks running then you could probably download the XBL single-player demo and decide. I still think that Third Strike is the best looking game in the series.

I can tell you must love everything Street Fighter.

Definitely. Well, I've never seen the movie (considering the feedback it's received maybe that's a good thing), but I do own many of the games and even purchased the Third Strike soundtrack and a SF artbook...

I think even the director of the Street Fighter film would be disappointed with that shell of a movie.
