Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix (now there is a title that struggles to flow off the tongue) is a classic arcade title in its own right, featuring characters from two Capcom franchises–Street Fighter and Darkstalkers–in a cute and colourful puzzle game. In a similar fashion to Tetris, up to four players battle against each other over local or Xbox LIVE by forming chains of colourful grouped blocks which equate to attacks against your opponent, the bigger the group of coloured blocks you form the stronger your attack is made against the other player.
This HD Remix version is the first in the line of Capcom titles that will receive a new lick of HD paint for the next–gen consoles, but with that said not everything has been updated. While each of the four gems, backgrounds and its character art have been redrawn in HD resolution, your characters in the playing field haven’t, resembling a mush of low resolution pixels. This gives you a feel that this “HD Remix” version is a little unfinished and it is a little disappointing to not see the player characters have the same treatment has the rest of the game.
Graphics aside, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix is an very enjoyable puzzle game for all ages and gaming skills. There is a lot of game for your MS Points here, with plenty of achievement challenges that will keep you busy for a long while.
