Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike (CP System III)

random genres graphics themes release info hardware features

This 3rd version of Street Fighter III from 1999 has a lot of enhancements compared to the other versions. Apart from it having no less than 20 characters to choose from, including some real oddballs like Q or Twelve, it has the nice feature of being able to select one of two different opponents for each match (later copied in Tekken 5). Also the soundtrack is really 90's-cool with lots of hip-hop and even some jungle. Awesome.

Makoto vs. Ibuki

  • Completed the game with Makoto on 4/8 difficulty and got the score: 1580218. Makoto is a very nicely animated karate girl. I really like her style, and would like to see her i SF4.

    This wasn't too bad. A bunch of hard low kicks and fire balls ended up taking out Gill.

    I think it's noticeable that the first time I meet Gill, he's almost impossible to beat, and a few tries later, he's almost trivially easy. I wonder if the game has some sort of dynamic difficulty system that ensures that I put a few extra quarters into it without getting too frustrated.
