    Super Street Fighter II Revival is a real nice SF version for the GBA.

    Super Street Fighter II Revival to me is the superior of the 2 on the GBA. I had the Alpha3 game and thought it kind of sucked. They changed the way the button mapping setup worked which I didn't like, but mostly it was the nasty jump in difficulty between fights going from like wussy easy to aggravating hard after like the 3rd one. Also while it is nice to have people to select from and try and remember, SFA3 with that and all the styles was just overboard. And SSF2 also has some other fun little modes built into it as well.

    I imported the SSF2 game I have just to avoid that little issue the us/uk one has and it's a great addition to any collection.

    King of Fighters EX2: Howling Blood is the best GBA fighter. Its the complete package for me.

    I love Street Fighter Alpha 3 but i hate that it's hard to do the moves like fireball.

    I also like "Super Street Fighter II Turbo Revival" because when I press 'select' button during the fight, I can do the moves easily. It's like a simplified move mode. For instance, to do 'hadoken' by Ryu, instead of 'quarter circle + punch', I can just press 'left+punch'. I can play the game to my full potential, instead of being frustrated of not being able to do the move. I don't know if people know this, but people don't mention this alot.

    Actually I want to play "Street Fighter Alpha 3" too because the fighters have multiple specials instead of just one. The problem is its kind of hard to do the moves. Does anyone know if "SF Alpha 3" has a similar simplified move mode just like "SSF II Turbo Revival"?

    I´m really into the double dragon advance and final fight one, classic 2D scrollers.

    Either SF II is pretty cool. Very slick and don't feel dumbed down in comparison to their home console brethren. The difficulty spike in Alpha 3 is annoying but I do find myself playing it more than revival...don't really know why!

    Street fighter alpha 3 by far. Has the best graphics out of all of them, the most character choices, the most combo's, etc..

    I found that if you have both Street Fighter Revival and King of Fighters Howling Blood, then you have the best the GBA has to offer in terms of fighting games.
