Wow! There is no game that comes close to the enjoyment that you can get out of this incredible title! The graphics are perfect, as is the sound. I love the raw speed of the game, plus the special star mode. (To enter this mode simply do the old SF2 code on controller two). Playing with ten stars is a true experience. I have no complaints on this title!...

I thought it would be hard to improve upon the first SFII without being a carbon copy, but to tell you the truth Capcom did an awesome job. The graphics have been improved and the backgrounds have been remade with cooler details and colors. Soundwise, the music is better and the addition of more voice adds a lot of character to the game. As to gameplay, it is nearly perfect; the response time of the characters is virtually flawless. Being able to play as the bosses is a great addition to the game, as is the ability to set the speed of the game and giving each of the characters new moves. Overall this game is a must buy and is definitely the closest arcade to home translation I have ever seen.

Trade in your old version of SFII and buy this cart now!

Wow! Just when I had begun to think it might become possible to get tired of SF, SFII TCE knocked my socks off! This title is as well produced as the first, but the new moves and the speed give the game a whole new dimension. Just as close to the arcade as SFII, SFII TCE should be on everyone's wish list!
