    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection on the Switch is a very good compilation of many Street Fighter arcade games in a 10+year time frame (these are all classics so nothing after '99 essentially). The rest comes in the form of soundtracks from the games presented. My favorite part is the huge art gallery they've included in-game to go over little known history, early concepts and more over the 30 years Street Fighter has been around. I'm just a little disappointed that this wasn't labeled "Arcade Collection" because they're missing out on a lot of other SF releases that would be more fitting under an "Anniversary Collection" name. However, let me be honest here. The only reason I didn't rush out to get this on any other platform was because I wanted to play Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike on the go because it was my favorite SF game when I was about 15 after discovering it on Dreamcast. I bought it two more times on 360 and PS3 when the HD Online Edition came out but I still needed a TV. Yes, almost exactly 10 years later would I be able to officially play SFIII: 3rd Strike and the other SFIII versions on the go in one game. Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact is my favorite in presentation as it's the only one that holds up in official widescreen. The games are all based on the arcade versions so those used to any console versions (like me) will notice a difference. I still prefer SFIII: 3rd Strike on console but the arcade is good enough for me (even thought the soundtrack is lower quality than the console)! As for the competitive scene, I don't really mind the potential smaller player base on Switch as I'm not an online competitor. I've played fighters casually on arcade all my life and very rarely if ever online. Also one last thing to point out. You can exploit the save system and create a save state during your playthrough. So if you want to get through arcade mode more flawlessly if you lack the skill, you can save before a crucial moment and load it back up if you fail. Overall decent collection for classic fans and those interested in the history of Street Fighter in one compilation.

    This has everything from the fabled original Street Fighter to Street Fighter III, along with the various versions of those games. I would recommend it specifically to Street Fighter II fans (along with it's sister game Ultra Street Fighter II, the Final Challengers.). You'll probably want an external controller or fight stick of some kind with this (or even the detached Switch joycons in a controller shell) to play this. If you've never played Street Fighter II all you need to know is that it is the king of 2D fighting games and that doesn't mean it's my personal favorite, but I feel it is an objective assessment (though King of Fighters and others are worthy rivals). Of course, for someone like me, who remembers the long lines for the Street Fighter II cabinet in my college arcade, you might figure I have a particular bias, but the game series is a phenomenon for a reason.

    A Great Compilation of Arcade Classics

    If you were a fan of Street Fighter back in the day, then this game is for you. It has ALL the arcade Street Fighter games in every iteration. They are arcade perfect and unchanged. Some have knocked the graphics, but they are exactly as they should be - these games are not enhanced ports, though there is the ability to use save states. There is an issue with controls, though that is more the fault of the Switch. The Joycon controllers are not ideal, so consider a Pro style controller or, even better, an arcade fighting stick. This does add to expense though and limits the value of portability. As for the games, Street Fighter II is the star here of course, and it comes in regular, Champions Edition, Turbo, Super, and Super Turbo flavors - pick your favorite and have fun! The inclusion of all 3 Alpha games is nice as well, and there are the three versions of Street Fighter 3 as well. They also included the original game, however that one's more of a curiosity as it is very difficult and clunky. Still, it completes a great package that also has some history and other documentation that can be freely viewed. Overall, this is quite a lot of game for the price and it's great for reliving the fighting game glory days!

    I had to be honest with myself in giving this game 3 stars and wanted to give it higher, but there some negatives that knocked off a few stars in my own opinion. First the good; U basically have the entire Street Fighter collection as your finger tips including SFIV if you pre-ordered the game which I think was an awesome incentive, but i already own it on Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4. Yes, these are straight arcade ports with minimal options available and this is were the negatives come in. First the button configuration options are bare bones at best, you cannot select the level difficulty of the AI in any of the games, as far as I know anyway, Not enought screen filter options when compaired to previous console ports for some of these games, training mode and online modes are limited to just 4 out of the 12 games, but I can understand why they might've made that decision since people can prepare themselves when they go online for those specific titles. Another small gripe is the bonus material which is all good and stuff, but I noticed they had a page or two where the art content was in there twice? And wish there were more notes about the stories of the games instead of just artwork show or maybe even included a small video documentry about some or all of the titles, now that would've been awesome. At the end of the day I would recommend this game to any fighting game fan or gamer in general, there is a lot do still and of course the games are a blast to play either solo or with friends.

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary has great graphics that are true to the original. It also has a mode that enhances them to make the characters look HD. Another mode it has is first person view. It's not too bad but it probably won't keep your interest too long. It also has a training mode and new sound effects for each character. You have the option to use the original sound effects or use the new ones. So you can mix and match graphics to the sound you want to hear. All in all it's great to play without having to have a roll of quarters ready. I would recommend it but I'd probably wait until it is in sale. The original price is a bit steep.

    I purchased a switch for my 5 year old on his birthday and he loves all the Mario games. I came across this game on a "deals" website and thought I would give it a try for the price. It took me right back to 1992 when I was 12 years old and pumping in quarters at the local video store with all my friends after-school. My son likes fighting games too so it was a win win. If your into classic retro games I highly recommend this one. It has ALL the variations of SF2, hyper, championship, turbo, etc. I can't believe I remember all the characters special moves!

    As a fan of this series, when I heard about this game being released, immediately wanted to get it, especially for the Switch. Most of these games I had at one time or another but don't own anymore, so I wanted to be able to play them again, especially portably. Unfortunately, all versions of this have some input lag and on the Switch in specific, the input lag is the worst. Granted, it's not completely unplayable or anything but if you're looking for exact input in your fighters and are a big fighting game person, you may be annoyed. Luckily, I'm not a hardcore fighting game fan and have been having fun with the game.

    I’ve always been a street fighter fan as long as I can remember and bought most every game in the series over the years. This collection is a must have if you’re a fighting enthusiast and fan of the series. I never really got to play street fighter 3: third strike until I purchased this and man what an awesome addition to the line. It has become my favorite go to street fighter when I feel like getting a few games in. For the price, you cant beat what is offered here. 12 games from the original up to street fighter 4. Pick this up, you’ll be glad you did.

    If you like the classic SF games, especially SFII, this collection is for you. On top of the many included games you get a wealth of archival material that is super easy to get lost in for die hard fans of the series. These are arcade ports, not based on any of the console versions released over the years, that being said I did take off one star for the controls. Out of the box this game does not control well on Joycons or a Pro controller, I'm sure it controls way better when paired with a decent fight stick but traditional controls don't work too well in my opinion.

    Street Fighter on the go is a must for any hardcore SF fan, as there is the buggy SF one, the various incarnations of SFII, and finally SFIII--all great and innovative games that started the fighting genre back in their day. However, this cannot be called a true collection without the addition of SF 4 and SF5. With that in mind, i played for about 1 hour until my nostalgia cravings were fulfilled and set the game aside and played something else on my switch.

    So I got this when it was on sale really cheap and with gamers club discount. It is nice to play with bringing back some childhood memories and show the kids what we used to play. I was not expecting the old graphics though. I know that's what we had back then but I think i'm too spoiled now. I read the previous release of street fighter on switch has an option to use current graphics so maybe i should try that one too. Not bad, cool to have, especially if you get it on sale.

    The value for money in this collection is reason enough alone to pick it up. For the price of Street Fighter 3rd Strike alone you get 11 other mainline Street Fighter titles showcasing the history of the franchise before it made the transmission to 3D with Street Fighter IV. Aside from the original, these games still hold up today and are a great way to learn the basics of the series and slowly build skill or just have fun playing around with the games you grew up with.

    Great SF game for those who loved the SF 3 series. There are a lot of versions of SF 2, which adds to the count (although it's a marketing ploy). Truthfully, SF2 Turbo, the Alpha series, and SF3rd Strike make the core of this game. Worth it if you did not buy the remastered SF2 Challengers. Unfortunately, I did buy both, so SF2 Challengers lost a lot of value because of this collection. Vault has really nifty tidbits about history and character profile

    This game is well priced at a price I like to spend on games, $39.99, but it is also the best game you’ve played! With so many street fighter launches, from a few Street fighter 2 games, to street fighter alpha games and up to street fighter 3, you have a collection of street fighter games. If your a fighting game fan this is like a bundle of many street fighter games, including the first street fighter game. Best deal for $39.99. Very high replay value!

    Playing SF 2 is the main reason to get this game, but the Alpha series and SF3 might be better games overall for the increased roster size and extra technical moves such as parrying. This collection does a good job of preserving the games for the old timers while also introducing a new generation with the classics. The museum in this has a lot of cool extras which is a plus, but sometimes online can get a little laggy

    Its a great collection of classic SF games but it does suffer from some minor issues such as not being able to map certain buttons (3x kick/3x punch to ZR/ZL) online battles can be extremely laggy(Switch Wi-Fi players), sound issues with 3rd Strike and only being able to use training mode/play online in 4 games. All in all its a great package for those looking to revisit some classics.

    Essentially 4 core games of the series, with loads of historical content. While those are some of the best games ever, the collection is still missing some of the spin-off games in the history. The games work as they are. It certainly missed an opportunity to make the original Street Fighter more control accurate.

    If you played Street Fighter back in the late 80's and early 90's. You will not be disappointed. 12 games are featured here. Although some of the later additions of these games maybe repetitive. They still bring joy as you were playing them in the orginal arcade format. That's the highlight here. If you've waited for getting a Street Fighter Collection from the past. This is the one to clearly get.
