The second part of the Street Fighter Alpha sub-series, which is another installment of the best-selling series of two-dimensional fights, developed by Capcom. Like most of the previous games in the series, the title debuted first on slot machines, from where it found its way to the most popular desktop consoles: PlayStation, SEGA Saturn and SNES. The PC version appeared on the market with a two-year delay.

In Street Fighter Alpha 2 the characters known from the previous installment of the series return. However, there were some new heroes, such as teenage warrior Sakura and a gang member named Rolento, borrowed from Final Fight. In the game also come back famous from the second part of Street Fightera Dhalsim and Zangief and the master kung-fu Gen, who originally appeared in the first installment of the whole cycle.

As in the first Street Fighter Alpha single player mode consists of eight duels with demanding computer opponents. The competition ends with a fight against the final boss, whose identity depends on the controlled hero. Each character also has his or her "secret rival", who can face them under strict conditions.

In terms of mechanics, the game brings with it a few important changes, although most of the techniques available in the original, such as three level Super-Combo, Alpha Counters, Air Blocking and Fall Breaking have been preserved. The main novelty is the Custom Combo system, which replaced the current Street Fighter Alpha Chain Combo. It can be activated at the first or higher level of the Super Combo counter and allows you to perform any combination of blows and kicks defined by the player before the time limit expires. At the same time it is worth noting that some of the characters (Guy and Gen) have retained the ability to perform Chain Combo, although to a somewhat limited extent.

Street Fighter Alpha 2 is no different from its predecessor in terms of graphic design. We also have similar gameplay modes at our disposal, including Versus mode, which allows local competition between 2 players.
