T.E.A.R.S. Episode 13 – Street Fighter II: The World Warrior

Time for another episode! Episode 13 of T.E.A.R.S. is here, and this time I’ll be reviewing Street Fighter II: The World Warrior.

Developed and released by Capcom in 1991, Street Fighter II: The World warrior was a big hit in the arcades, so it was only natural that home ports quickly followed. Although Capcom developed versions for Nintendo and Sega consoles, US Gold nabbed the license to develop and publish the game for the 16-bit computers in the UK. US Gold were well known for publishing dodgy conversions, but is this one any different? Watch to find out!

    Once again matey thanks for Uploading:)

    I had seen the amiga version in action graphically it looks pretty good until it moves then its a bit jerky.
    I did think the music could have been better though.

    Why oh why did they port from the st?

      It’s the old “lowest common denominator” trick which quite a few developers did back then in order to save time and money. The Atari st and the Amiga had the same processor, so they program for the less powerful system (in this case the st) then ported the code over. The Amstrad cpc had a similar problem where a number of games were spectrum ports!

    Good god how many frames of animation were missing from this version, i saw Guile do his german backbreaker and Ryu was not even on his shoulder… horrible horrible port and as for control problems why did they not put all six attack buttons on the keyboard then you played it like arcade machine?

    They should of never released this crappy conversion at Games Master Live US Gold were showing a Amiga version of this game when it was still in development that looked as good as the Snes i think that was fake.
    This isnt the only version of Street Fighter 2 on the Amiga US Gold did Super Street Fighter 2 and then Gametek did Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo it would be cool if you could do videos of theam aswell Pottyboy?.
    Belive it or not the Gametek SSF2T has worse animation than this version missing complete moves.

      I have played both and ssf2 is by far the best version on the Amiga, though that’s not really saying much. It looks and sounds awful and still not that playable with a one button joystick. It was a lot faster though, and the AGA version allows you to use a CD32 pad as well as install it to a hard drive. Ive only played turbo briefly, but that’s a good thing as its almost as bad as this version. It’s also one of the few Amiga games which you cannot play straight from disk. You have to install it onto a hard drive.
