Title -  Street Fighter III 3rd Strike - Fight for the Future -

   (ストリートファイターIII サードストライク 〜ファイト フォー ザ フューチャー)


Maker - Capcom   Catalogue No. - T-1209M


Type - 2D Fighting Action



Possibly the best Street Fighter for the Dreamcast or at least I think so.  As you can tell from the title, this is the 3rd in the Street Fighter 3 series with the other 2 being on the Street Fighter W Impact disc.  3rd Strike has some of the most beautiful character animation seen in a 2D fighter of it's time and even today 5 years later.  Not only that but Capcom have boosted up the resolution so that this game looks beautiful running on the Dreamcast in high resolution but of course Capcom know that there are those out there who prefer the original arcade screen size and lower resolution.  So by holding down START and Y while the game boots up until the Capcom logo fades away will make the game run in it's original arcade resolution.  Of course this causes some problems for normal TVs sine half the special bar gage is off the screen due to arcades having a different resolution to normal house hold TVs.

Unfortunately Street Fighter III 3rd Strike is quite pricey in Japan and probably will remain that way.  Why is this?  Who knows.  Maybe because this truly is the best Street Fighter game available.
