When we think about the fighting genre of gaming for the most part many people remember how college the CP System games were. For the CP System II the world had the chance to witness the release of many exciting games such as Super Street Fighter Turbo II, X-Men: Children of the Atom, DarkStalkers: The Night Warriors, Street Fighter Alpha I-III and Narvel vs Capcom: Clash of the Super Heroes. While CP System II games were great we never got a chance to see too many CP System III titles during the late 90’s early 00’s.
While there have been very few CP System III titles that were released during the mid to late 90’s such as: Red Earth and the two JoJo games the title that stands out the most were arcade and console version Street Fighter III. The graphics for titles like Street Fighter III were great and looked more realistic than games for the CP System II. The amount of detail that Capcom used for games like Street Fighter III and Red earth was almost like 2D gaming at its best. Unfortunately, the rise of 3D gaming on consoles such as The PS1 and N64 overshadowed some of the popular CP System III games that came out during the mid to late 90’s. Looking, back at things now some would argue that the CP System III was better than the basic 3D visuals that the PS1 provided in many games. Since the sprites for the CP System III games were more detailed and refined then the basic 3D model games for the PS1; some would be more inclined to agree that Capcom should have made more CP System III games then they did back in the late 90’s & early 00’s.
