Does anyone of you know if the original 1996 guide to SFA1 is any good? I’m talking about this one: Amazon.com: Street Fighter Alpha Warriors’ Dreams Unauthorized Game Secrets (Secrets of the Games Series.) (9780761506102): Erik Suzuki, Prima Development, Eric Suzuki: Books
Since SFA1 is pretty much considered to be broken anyway; respectiveley is not played on a higher level anymore I’m also wondering about the overall design-aspects of it, eg. is it nice to look at in terms of artwork, screenshots and layout. Of course, it would also be nice if the included strategies are not totally outdated / wrong and still can be used. Last but not least, since 96 pages don’t seem exactly plenty, is it any better than the SFA Anthology guide in terms of sheer SFA1 coverage?
So the three questions are basically:
- How’s the design - does it qualify as a cool book to have and just browse through or is it rather boring?
- How is the actual content - any useful strategies / data?
- And finally, how does it compare to the SFA Anthology book (of course limited to the A1 coverage, but both in terms of design and content)?
