    Great game from the past finaly on Xbox 360 (and Playstation 3). This game gave Megadrive/Genesis owners a big smile on their face. This was (and for me still IS) the best home street brawler game, and now i can play this on my 55 inch TV where the color seems to jump from the screen. Animation is still as fluid as i remember, and game play is just perfect, especially when you use aGreat game from the past finaly on Xbox 360 (and Playstation 3).

Can't wait for the Nintendo 3DS version, with added game play modes and 3D effect! Expand

    Classic that's clearly still fondly remembered by a lot of people and is thankfully still great fun after all this time. Now, how about new Streets of Rage game Sega?

    This "IS" the best side scrolling beat em up there is. It's better than the first and third Streets of rage and blows Double Dragon out of the water. This and Final Fight stand as the best side scrolling fighters that there are in my opinion. Even today the graphics and sound effects/music are second to none. The controls are just about perfect and the fact that you can get this for This "IS" the best side scrolling beat em up there is.

    Still great fun after all this time and a classic beat em up which has aged better than Double Dragon.

    Jim B. is a moron. This was one of the best games of that time and still stands up today. He clearly sucks at video games if he was throwing his buddy 10 times in a row.

    Classic co-op beat-em-up! Superb sountrack, very fun gameplay. Best game of the series, one of my top 5 for Sega Genesis (along with Sonic, Golden Axe, Outrun and ToeJam&Earl).

    Truly awful. Boring. Pointless. Co-Op makes you want to punch your best buddy in the face (in real life) cos he just threw you across the map by accident 10 times in a row! AVOID!!!

    It's got a decent length for a game of its time and it certainly worth playing more than once. The visuals are surprisingly vibrant. Most importantly, it's fun. But the online portion of SOR2 is executed poorly. And, once again, Backbone Entertainment presents a classic SEGA title with absolutely no extras.
  2. Streets of Rage 2 stands as one of the most well-crafted beat-'em-ups ever, and it still looks and sounds great and plays beautifully.

    Beating up bad guys was never so fun and especially with a co-op buddy it’s a blast. Improving your Gamerscore shouldn’t be a problem either as over 75 percent can be achieved quite easily.
