The game that practically created the fighting genre by itself is now available on the Game Boy Advance. Capcom’s ridiculously popular Street Fighter 2 series hits home on the first Nintendo portable powerful enough to do it justice. If you are a beat-em-up fanatic, you cannot miss out on this top quality conversion. Super Turbo Advance, round one, fight.

This is one of the best portable fighting games to ever to be released. It has almost everything you could possible want from a beat-em-up and then some. All of your favourite Street Fighter characters, combos, supers, new backgrounds, quality animation, a two-player mode, excellent music and samples. Most importantly, Turbo Revival has wickedly addictive and balanced gameplay.

You might be thinking that the lack of six buttons on the Advance might be a problem for a six button game, but it isn’t. Quicks and mediums share the same button but how long you hold it down for determines the move, clever.

Turbo Revival is one of those games that you think about playing when you’re daydreaming about games. It might be worth booking a flight just so you can have a decent session on it. Seriously, say goodbye to those moments of boredom, waiting for a train suddenly becomes an enjoyable experience.

Capcom has got the timing of the moves right with this version, so if you have played Street Fighter before you will be right at home. With 18 characters (two hidden), 16 stages and an ending for each character there is a lot of reason to complete this game repeatedly. The single player game lets you practice your combos and develop your tactics for the two-player games.
