Anyone who ever had a Super Nintendo game console or enjoyed one-on-one fighting games will instantly recognize Street Fighter II. This game still stands as one of the most recognizable ever and truly marked a breakthrough in console gaming when it came out in the early 1990s. Now, it also comes to you in the form of this 5 reel, 25 payline slot.
Unfortunately, one gets the feeling playing this game that this slot came out at roughly the same time as the game. This is because the overall presentation and gameplay of Street Fighter II appears to be decidedly outdated. Although fans of the game will love to see characters from the classic game, the graphics are, on the whole, quite poor. Moreover, there is absolutely no music whatsoever in this slot. This is a shame, for it would truly come in handy to give this game a touch of spice.
What is also disappointing is a near total lack of bonuses. There are only two: The Street Fighter logo is the scatter symbol. It can pay pretty nicely but it does not activate any other kind of feature. The substitute feature asks you to pick from one of five characters. You hope that that character ends up on the second reel and M. Bison on the fourth. If this occurs, the two will fight and you will be awarded a bonus. Unfortunately, that’s about it. There are no free spins or wild icons to be found here.
There are no special moves or requirements to fight any of the bosses in this one. Instead, all you have to do is make a bet, spin the reels, and hope that things turn out for the best. The “lines” and “bet” pairs of arrows will adjust the variables that go into your ante bet, while the “spin” button will get the action underway, so to speak.
