Even among such classic compositions as the Super Mario theme and the Overworld theme from the orginal Legend of Zelda, Sega's classic Streets of Rage music stands apart.
Vice City says "NO!". I do respect gaming music from back in the day though.
All beat-em ups had a great soundtrack, they had too because the beats adding to the hype. It got you pumped as you kicked some arse. Best beat-em ups: Streets of rage Simpsons arcade Final fight Double dragon Riot zone Riot city X-men Ninja turtles
dont forget the arcade battle toads game by rare & metamorphic force
I accidentally disagreed to you, damn iPod. N4g should also let you rescind your vote. But yeah true
the arcade beat-em up avp game was good too~
You mentioned riot zone/riot city. Not a lot of people played that, let alone owned a Turbo duo(PC engine scd).
Also don't forget:
Marvel Super Heroes
Death and Return of Superman
Spider-Man & Venom
Peace Keeper/Rival Turf/Brawl Brothers
Aliens vs Predator(Arcade)
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 WAAAPOOSH! and KURRRR!
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.
Many amiga32 games were also known of its awesome soundtracks.
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
Loved the soundtrack for this game as well. I have a lot of favourites and could easily name this the best soundtrack on the Genesis. but maybe not of all time.
Recently Sleeping Dogs has a few tracks that really remind me of Streets of Rage like this epic track
Oh man, that is awesome.
i totally agree . i love the music . i would go in sound options put on headphones and listen to some tracks over and over. i’m going to go get that game
Mega Drive had the best soundtrack of all time!
