sound effects were great lol.. Skates cork screw kick sound was awesome.. So was axels body slam moves lol

This is because of the way the genesis was made. The Nintendo systems may have looked slightly better, but had inferior sound chips.

But wow, I didn't realize anyone else noticed that. It sounds like it hits so hard. Especially the poles LMAO

You got it the other way around; it was well known that the supernintendo had a much better sound chip than the genesis.

Yep, it was actually the father of the PlayStation, Ken Kutaragi who designed the SNES/Super Famicom sound chip. Which was, in fact, quite superior to the Genesis/MegaDrive. That said, SEGA had some really wicked composers like Yuzo Koushirou who did some really memorable soundtracks. I love the music from the original Sonic games, as well as games like Shinobi 3, and Streets of Rage.

jamesensor2099d ago

Many amiga32 games were also known of its awesome soundtracks.

No_Pantaloons2099d ago

When I read the title I immediately started humming one of the tunes, complete with sound effect for special moves.

Takes me back to all those sleep overs staying up all night beating the crap out of hundred of thugs, while dashing to get the apple or turkey before my buddy takes it.

sigh...They sure don't make games like this anymore.

That's what inspired this post. I was humming the theme from level 1 for days before I cottoned on to what it was. Then I went on a SoR music binge on YouTube and here we are
