Welcome to the Lens of Truth’s first attempt at a Retrospect Head2Head. Now before anyone gets excited, we decided to start off this new section with a game  almost every person should have heard of once in their life,  and that’s Street Fighter. With Super Street Fighter IV rocking the industry as we speak, we thought it’s the prime time to focus or lens on its predecessor, Street Fighter III 3rd Strike.

Street Fighter IV may be the best 3-D looking Street Fighter to date but it wasn’t the first. The original Street Fighter EX was made for Arcades on the Playstation based Sony ZN-1 System in 1996. What the ZN-1 did was finally give Capcom the ability to create a Street Fighter game in a 3-D world. But is it any good? Is it worth tracking down this hard to find PS1 rendition? Find out in our latest Retro Review.

retro Review: Marvel vs Capcom 2

With the overwhelming success of Marvel vs Capcom, fighting fans craved more. Capcom released what was to be the “be all end all” of their versus series fighters. Marvel vs Capcom 2 was what they gave us. Capcom changed almost everything from their previous versus series games. Gone were the days of 2 on 2 battles and a six attack button controller layout. Now the battles were 3 on 3, as well as the strong punch and forward kick buttons being removed. These major changes brought some serious doubts among series veterans. Was their really a need to change these staples of the series? A few short moments with the game was all anyone needed.

Continuing on with the retroSpects of Capcom’s versus series fighters, brings us to the third installment, Marvel vs Capcom. After a good but not great attempt with Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter, Capcom needed to come back with a bang. Marvel vs Capcom was their answer. With a stellar cast and two new assist abilities, this game was shaping up to bring greatness back to the series.

To follow up on their smash hit X-Men vs Street Fighter, Capcom released their next tag team brawler, Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter. What could Capcom do to improve on such an incredible game? Or would this just be another half-hearted sequel? Only time would tell and this game would surely stand the test of time.

Way back in 1998, Capcom released X-Men vs Street Fighter for the Sega Saturn. This was a monumental release for all fighting game fans. Up until then we were only given close renditions of arcade quality games on the home consoles. By releasing this game with a 4-Meg RAM cart add on, fighting game fans were finally given what we had all been waiting for…Arcade Perfection!

Are These Really The Best & Worst Characters In Street Fighter IV?

Kotaku has an updated list of the best and worst fighters in Street Fighter IV. The story states the list was compiled by Japanese gamers and shows how many times on average, two players of equal skill will win a “best of 10″ series using two characters. It’s a pretty detailed list and besides my favorite character Guile being ranked 21 out of 25, I happen to agree with it. Sagat, Seth, Balnka and Ryu are all very, very good. Check out the list inside.

Capcom has  finally released Street Fighter IV after a slight delay in production. We sat down with SF4 for the Xbox 360 and PS3 and had to admit, it was sure worth the wait. With high definition, super fast moves, and a great new style, SF4 can easily allow itself to be called a classic upon release.  But before we can crown the game a total success, we had to look at the game on each console.
