    I never really liked the presentation of SSF2. The tinny music and announcer really out me off. Plus the colours seemed more washed out and less aggressive. The game still plays great, of course, but I'll always prefer Turbo.

    By the way, that SNES box is impressively mint

    I never liked Super much at all compared to Turbo. It was a huge let down for me personally. That SNES box is mint but I didn't know the art was that terrible...

    Alright alright, I'll acquire the 3DO version.....you win. :-p

    So one more member for the Turbo > Super camp. Interesting!

    It really is, now that you mention it. Probably because my childhood self only had SFII and SFIITurbo, and I had to buy SSFII only a few years ago, so it did not fall victim to my grubby kiddie fingers. (nah, I always took really good care of my games, but still)

    Those "washed-out colors" actually make it seem a little more high-end to me...a rather pastelle color palette, if you will. That contributes to my feeling that this is a deluxe version of the game. Funny how different opinions can be.
    So +2 for Turbo.

    A big plus for Super, in my opinion, is the correct coloring of the clothes...Turbo has this really weird color scheme that hurts my eyes. Sure I can select the correct colors with some button, but for one pretty much no one of the others ever thinks of that and second, those are the Turbo colors.

    +3 for Turbo! Wow...there's a pattern! +4 if you count my friend.

    The artwork on the cover is very simple, but I gotta admit...I like it. It's really plain and frugal but a nice change of pace versus the usual characters on game boxes.

    Yeah, it's weird. I remember we used to jump to try and be the first to pick Ryu, because we all wanted to be the version with the dark grey gi and pale blue headband. I have absolutely no idea why.

    Hang on a minute, are we comparing SSF2 to SSF2T or SSF2 to SF2T? I'm getting confused

    In any case, i don't like the either of the Super games. Street Fighter 2 Turbo is the one for me.

    I can only speak for myself, but as of right now I am not familiar with "Super Turbo" yet. Which will change in the future.

    I actually liked the big box version of this - it really made me excited to play the game. Great memories of the music pumping out of my stereo.

    That's the one I'll have to get, since all my 3DO games are in longbox* plus it does look beautiful!

    *(except for "FIFA Soccer" because it's PAL and back then doing mail order I had no idea PAL games looked different than my imported US ones; also "Crash 'n Burn' is only a jewel case because it was the pack-in game)

    I've actually changed my mind about the 3DO big/long boxes. I now think they're pretty cool in the way they're so over the top. I found my original long box Way of the Warrior the other day and thought it looked nice.

    I just went on eBay to see how much the long box version of Crash N Burn is - and there is only one copy for 150. It's one of my favourite 3DO games that I still enjoy playing, but I'm not going to pay that much for an additional copy. I think I have two copies of the jewel case version that came with the machine. I remember being amazed by it back in the day, so I was really happy it was the pack-in game.

    I wish they had made Crash N Burn 2, which could have pushed the machine further and been more polished.
