Fans of the classic arcade game Street Fighter may be looking for a way to play it on modern devices. Street Fighter delivers a good gaming experience, but its questionable copyright status makes it difficult to recommend.
Street Fighter is available as a free application. Download and installation took place quickly, but some of the permissions required for installation, such as phone access, are difficult to justify. There also did not appear to be any technical support available. Upon startup, the application immediately states that playing the application in the United States, Canada, or Japan, may be in violation of copyright laws. This is a troublesome issue that makes it impossible to recommend this application. The actual gameplay, itself, was similar to that of the original console-based version. Occasionally, the graphics and music froze, but for the most part the experience matched the original game version. The controls required using the touchscreen as a virtual game pad, which proved difficult to master during quick matches. Those users familiar with console emulators should have less of a problem using the application.
Street Fighter offers a decent gaming experience and is a suitable gaming app for fans of this classic arcade game. Its unclear licensing status makes this app difficult to recommend, though.
Street Fighter II: The World Warrior is a competitive fighting game originally released for the arcades in 1991. It is the second entry in the Street Fighter series and the arcade sequel to the original Street Fighter released in 1987. It was Capcom's fourteenth title that ran on the CP System arcade hardware. Street Fighter II improved upon the many concepts introduced in the first game, including the use of command-based special moves and a six-button configuration, while offering players a selection of multiple playable characters, each with their own unique fighting style.
