Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection
Top Critic Average
Limp and lumpy online isn't quite enough to distract from the brilliantly reverent package curated by Digital Eclipse.
A worthy celebration of one of the most important franchises in gaming, although by leaving out Street Fighter's console heritage there are a few gaps in the content.
The new Street Fighter collection ensures the series' most influential chapters are here to stay.
Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is an arcade perfect collection of twelve titles across Street Fighter's grand history. Unfortunately, it's missing some of the bells and whistles of their console counterparts and online play is a bit rough. Despite those problems, local play is a winner and the Museum is packed with content showing a real love for the franchise's history. If you know what you're getting into, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is a great compilation, just not a perfect one.
This collection isn't for everyone, and you'll likely not play every one of the 12 games intensely. However, it's worth picking up if you're a fan of the series or of 2D fighting games in general, and even my time in the weaker entries of the franchise was filled with nostalgia.
Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection brings together some of the greatest fighting games of all time - many of which are still top-tier titles today - complete with slick online gameplay and a fully-featured training mode, all for 40 bucks. Though SF30 doesn't quite live up to its potential as a comprehensive historical document, ultimately, The Fight is all that matters. In that regard Capcom, some 30 years later, just scored another K.O. We await your return, warrior.
The fact that Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection gives players a thorough insight into Street Fighter II, III and the Alpha series is recommendation enough, but when they're so well presented it makes this more or less essential for fight game fans. Add in the Switch's portability, and on-the-go multiplayer opportunities (if you're both willing to forgive the limitations of the Joy-Con) and this is everything a Street Fighter fan could hope for.
An unmissable pack for fans of old-school fighting, with a great selection of genre classics. Some had aged better than others, tough.

As a collection of Street Fighter games, it's hard to say anything bad about the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. It's a full-blown compilation of the very best fighting games in the world. (Also, it includes the original Street Fighter.) For anyone looking to play these classics with friends, it's hard to go wrong here and the robust Museum is the icing on this multi-layered cake.
Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is a great way to celebrate the best beat'em up in history. It gots the games, it gots the story, it can be played everywhere (on Switch): that's more than enough!
