    With a superb conversion handled by M2 and lots of options to take on solo or with a friend, 3D Streets of Rage II is a game that has managed to stand the test of time. It's a must play on the 3DS, and fairly affordable for just a few bucks – a far cry compared to what the original game sold for.

    It keeps its "90's" charm and is featured in a well-crafted port. Gameplay has some issues, but the feeling of the game is still awesome.

    3D Streets of Rage 2 on Nintendo 3DS eShop improves upon its roots in numerous ways - better combat, better performance, larger sprites.

    3D Streets of Rage 2 is the best conversion that could be made of Sega’s classic beat’em up. Everything that was good about the original was enhanced for the sequel and this new version for the 3DS eShop is nothing short of a near-perfect conversion of the beloved and iconic early 90s game.

    3D Streets of Rage 2 it's the perfect tribute to an old classic. The 3D effect is stunning and the Rage Relay Mode add some new flavour in it.

The new features for example like 4 lives games (one for each character) is pretty cool, in a death match knockout sort of way. Mapping the buttons is helpful, but makes it easier especially to throw weapons for example. Making all weapons effect as both melee and projectile quickly and decisively, The one hit one kill mode is also interesting if a little pointless. Nice now to see you can select a level too. Shame there are no leader-boards like the xbox360 version and the graphics is exactly the same visually when not using 3D,

    Overall I would say this is the definitive Streets of rage 2 package in all it's glory. I have no idea hope to play multi-player though! not got that far yet. definitely worth a "stab" as it were. Well worth under the £5 they are asking for it. I traded in a 2DS especially for this game, it is that important a rage reliever.

I knew this whas going to be great, as i played the Megadrive/Genesis version to deaht! So here we go:

    - Graphics: They lend themselves perfectly to this game. The bright color pallate, the great animation, and not to forget the depth due to the 3D effect being very good. The small screen makes for a razor sharp image.

    - Sound: This whas one of the first games that showed me the Megadrive/Genesis could do awesome serious music just as well as it could do happy music for platformers like Sonic. Lots of differend sounds and samples make for a great treat.

    - Gameplay: At first i had to get used to the smaller D pad, but before you know it youll be playing just as smooth as you did on the Megadrive/Genesis. With all the dificulty settings, everyone can have a good time, from novice to pro players.

    - Extras: I love the extras, especially the mode where you have to swap fighters, so in the long run, you get to be good with all of them. Still i have my favorite fighter, but i have gotten a lot better with the rest also.

    Some other good points are you are now able to save everywhere within the game, so you can pick it up as soon as you have the time. Also when i start playing, i can't put the game down quickly, so i end up playing a hour or so! Playing coop with friends is a blast!

    For such a small price, and such a great perfect port with extra bells and whistles on, you will have the fighting time of your life. Don't pass this by!

    The Genesis is my retro console of choice, the 3DS is my handheld of choice, and Streets Of Rage 2 is my side scrolling beat-em-up of choice.The Genesis is my retro console of choice, the 3DS is my handheld of choice, and Streets Of Rage 2 is my side scrolling beat-em-up of choice. M2's adaptations of Genesis games to the 3D classics series have been nothing short of spectacular. So it's a no-brainier that this game is a must-have for me.

    If you don't like retro games, this won't change your mind. If you're a SNES fan who never crawled out of the trenches of the 16 Bit Wars, you may not like anything Genesis/Megadrive related. But, if you're open to a Genesis classic, this just may be gaming heaven for you. The already sharp graphics shine in this translation, and the music is phenomenal. Unless you're just not gonna be open to it, I heartily recommend this timeless game.

    SEGA no hace tan buenos juegos como dicen, son regulares.
