Product Description

Product Description

One of the most popular series in video game history enters the PlayStation2 platform with Street Fighter EX3. Building on the EX branch of the series, this game has all of the old fighters you love (and love to hate) as well as the same controls. What's new is that these characters are now dynamic 3-D models working through a system of tag-team bouts. Try taking on three of these studied fighters at the same time. If you do well, one of them will choose to be your tag-team partner. You'll be able to switch between the two fighters at will or work them together in lethal dual combos. Also new to the series is the game's Hard Attack--an indefensible blow that reduces the competition.

Amazon.com

Given its immense popularity, not to mention first-rate pedigree, it's not surprising that Street Fighter EX3 is among the first PlayStation2 titles. After the relative success of the first game for the original PlayStation (PSX) and the disaster of the second, it'll be interesting to see how long-term fans of the series take to yet another 3-D brawler with the Street Fighter moniker. Even with classic characters--like Sagat, Blanka, Ken, and (of course) Ryu--back to duke it out, this might be one horse that's been beaten to death.

In Street Fighter EX3, players will be able to take advantage of a new system that allows character switching at any time throughout the battle. Not only will you be able to swap at will, but your dynamic duo also will have double-teaming tag combos to enhance an opponent's agony. This means that gamers will face three other opponents, and have four incredibly detailed fighters battling it out on screen at any one time in the ultimate handicap match. Take them out, and one might ask to join as your sidekick. Form a stable of four, and all of you can take your turn kicking Bison's tail, as well as that of any of the other famous Street Fighter characters in the game.

The control is predictable, but that's what fans want... nay, crave. Super combos, dizzies, and a number of other staple Street Fighter combos are here and look incredible. Lighting effects are much more mature: the animated sparks fly, and the pyrotechnics flame up all over the place. Character models have come a long way since the days of the first blocky Street Fighter EX game. Although they still lack necks, these brawlers are seamless and well defined. Their victorious poses rival any graphics that previously have been seen on a console.

Not everything is peaches 'n' cream with EX3, however. The endings of the EX series always have been a bit lacking: all you get in EX3 is a frozen frame with text; then, while the credits roll, a little consolation prize: over 10 enemies onscreen at once, all wanting to put the boots to you. This isn't the "true" ending we'd hoped for, but it's a nice gesture (and it shows off the system's power).

Capcom is doing everything it can to make Street Fighter EX3 the fighting game of choice for the PlayStation2; but, with Namco's Tekken Tag Tournament set to hit the market at the same time, it'll be a tough sell. Still, this is a Street Fighter game, and that alone justifies at least a play. --Todd Mowatt

Pros:

  • Switch characters at any time during fighting
  • Seamless and well-defined character models
Cons:

  • Predictable controls
  • Lackluster ending

5.0 out of 5 stars Neo-Old School? Does that even make sense? Well, it works. September 14, 2001
Street Fighter EX3 has been getting alot of flak. It's somewhat undeserved. No, more like, no one gives the game a chance.
My first encounter with this game was at a friends house. He had gotten a PS2 for Christmas and he had a few games. With only some Street Fighter II turbo experience under my belt, needless to say I wasn't very good. But the game is excellent.
I won't bother with the graphics. Suffice to say they are extrodinary. The play control is actually much better than people make it out to be. Their complaints are based on the fact that unlike other versions (such as Alpha 3) EX3 is simplified to the point of being retro. Gone are the alpha counters, two in ones and billion hit combos. Thus timing is more important than speed in this game. 30 hits are impressive here.
This game lasts longer. Each character, as always, has there own fighting style, if you've played any Street Fighter you're already familiar with the battle system. But you don't have things like '80% damage Juggernaut Head Crush' (as per MvsC2). So each battle depends more on skill. The best part of this game is not 'Original Mode' but rather the multiplay mode (though for anyone who meets Shin Bison, woe be him). Also the Character Edit mode features Ace, a charcter who can be armed with many moves from diffrent fighters, such as Ryu's Hadouken and even Cammy's Killer bee assault. Ace thus becomes a very versitile fighter that can be custimized to your taste.
EX3 is a game you can have a field day with. Play it, learn the moves, develop combos and battle your friends. This game is flat out great. It doesn't have the glitter and glitz of other fighting games, but it is something fans of SF will appreciate if they gave it a good chance. My only complaint is that there where some of my favorite characters missing such as Dan Hibiki. Dan in 3-D would make sure I never earned any respect though.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this game October 29, 2000
In short, if you've ever been a fan of Street Fighter, buy this game. If not, please walk away now. This game is Street Fighter at its finest. You can have up to four players at once fighting in a 2 on 2 tag team that is simply amazing. The graphics are impressive, though nothing that couldn't be done on a Dreamcast, and the control is dead on. When I bought my system I got SSX, Tekken Tag, Summonner, and this, and even though the graphics are less impressive in SF:EX3 than in any of the other games, I keep coming back and playing this for the sheer fun factor. Don't believe the other reviews; SF:EX3 is amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Street Fighter! December 13, 2000
Well, I personally like this game! I remember when Street Fighter EX+Alpha came to the PSX I loved it! Then I went to my movie theater and saw Street Fighter EX 2 I had to play it! Next it came to PSX with the Plus, And now SFEX3 is on PS2 with a better game engine then the Japanese Version.. If you're not a SF fan don't bother with this game, but If you're looking for a cool game fighter for the PS2 get this! If you have a Multi-Tap the cool 2 on 2 or 1 on 3 battles will keep you coming back for more! Over all this game is worth the money .

4.0 out of 5 stars From SNES to PS2 April 15, 2002
Street Fighter EX3 is definitely the best street game that I have ever played in my life. As far as graphics is concerned, no other street figher comes close to it. Some things that I miss are the old characters such as Cammy. Some things that are quite new...new characters that appeared out of nowhere. It seems that the partnership of Capcom and Akira brought the introduction of never seen before characters such as Kairi or Garuda. The only character that you can customize, Ace, can be quite powerful if he's assigned the right combination of moves, but gaining experience is a pain as one has to complete "missions". I definitely give it two thumbs up. It's a [good] price for a great game. It has become a little complicated from the snes versions, but it's worth the price--super combos, meteor combos, etc. The only part that I really hate is obtaining the metals to obtain characters such as evil ryu, bison II, etc. Some tasks are easy to achieve, but others--like 2 meteor combos--can prove to be quite impossible.
On the downside, characters no longer have their own stage. What belongs to whom? If it wasn't for the music, which changes according to the character, I would say that the fighting arenas just serve no purpose. In addition, I just missed those old finishing scenes. Each character's ending comprises a letter-format statement...no much creativity there. However, the ending credits are just awesome. Why? Because you can fight an entire group of guys nonstop. Purpose? How about plain fun? How about...how many can you k.o.?
One of the best purchase for PS2 I have made so far. No regrets.

5.0 out of 5 stars SFEX 3, Best In EX Series! July 6, 2002
By Rod J.
This game rocks! Great graphics and unbelievable fighters add more to its status. I6 available fighters, each with terrific moves and good graphics compel you to the screen. After reading the reviews, I was kind of disappointed, and couldn't take the game back. (I had ordered it and it was on its way.) But after getting the game and playing it, I was shocked with how good the gameplay was and totally forgot the bad reviews people wrote about this extraordinary game. You can choose from 27 fighters,(16 are available, 9 are locked and you have to get in), each with their own special moves, super combos and meteor combos. Another feature is that this game is definetely not a "button masher", as some people wrote about another one of my favorite games, Dead or Alive2. It takes time to master the super combos, which I have, and the meteor combos, which I still have no idea to, which classifies it as a "non-button masher." This game is awesome and if you are compelled to play fighting games hours on end, this is the game for you.
