For fighting game fanatics, Street Fighter II is up there with some of the greatest and most iconic fighting games ever. But what about the games its difficulty?

First, this isn't the first time players considered the thought that perhaps the Street Fighter II CPU was a little bit too much to deal with. Players suspected that the CPU had moments of invincibility and doesn't play by the same rules as what players do. In the above video, we can see numerous examples of how the Street Fighter II CPU had a clear advantage over players.

The video was released by Desk and it shows that the CPU consistently recovers from stuns 1/5 of the time it takes players to recover. Not to mention that the CPU also doesn't have to charge up for special moves like Guile's Somersault Kick, while also being able to mash buttons faster than players could even imagine. This video is for all those Street Fight II players who thought the CPU was a little too much to deal with, yes, your suspicion was correct.
