Street Fighter Alpha
is the gem at the top of today's rather pathetic pile of treasure. Unless you're a fan of themes and wallpapers, that's actually all
that will interest you. It could definitely be worse though; of all the PS1 games that could've been chosen, Street Fighter Alpha
's definitely not one to moan about. Here's the full release list:
- Street Fighter Alpha PS1 game ($5.99)
- Bionic Commando Rearmed theme (free)
- 2x Hot Shots Golf Open Tee 2 wallpapers (free)
- 2x Madden 09 wallpapers (free)

really why cant all the stores get the same content, Driver is a cool game that I haven't played in some time and would like to download, Being a Street fighter fan I'm happy they finally released SF Alpha for download.

Using that Hot Shots Golf OT2 volcano wallpaper with the cookie icon set makes it look like some sort of prehistoric golf theme. Kind of goofy, I like it.

Has options to change the Screen Mode & Button Configuration and works pretty well. There's Arcade Mode, Training Mode and Vs. Mode... but its only a one player game, so the screen just sits there waiting for player two. You have to restart the game to get out of the locked screen. There is also a save function, which does nothing. Maybe it saves the high scores or something. Its totally a PS1 game plopped right onto the PSP w/o any alterations or adjustments to accommodate for the port.
Its cool to have this mini game for quick play on the memory card and some thoughtless button mashing! I just wish I knew how to do all the moves... all I ever did was just mash the buttons back in the day.

Actually the real big problem is that there are 8 attacks and only 6 buttons. When you go to the in-game map controls menu it expects you to have an L1 and L2, and an R1 and R2.
Consequently there's always 2 attacks that you can't use. Not a huge deal, but it is what it is.
All in all I'm happy I got it. Though the PSP's d-pad doesn't make it very easy to play.

I'd rather have a SF3 port. There's already a better SFAlpha game on the platform, SFAlpha 3 Max.
