This SNES game is gotta be a racist game. The reason why I say this is because when you face an oppenent that is from Japan, such as Ryu, he is likely going to win. I used Zangief do combo moves, it is unlikely to have him executed when facing a Japanese oppenent. Just because this is a Jap game doesn't mean they have to program Jap fighters better than the others. Again, this is my experience when I played this game, you can try it and you'll see how hard it is when fighting against a Jap fighter, not just Ryu.
