Check out 7 minutes of Axel and Cherry in early gameplay from Streets of Rage 4.
Only music I liked so far was the character select screen. Come on Yuzo. Where you at?
I'm a little excited but the art style still isn't sitting right with me when you've seen some of the fantastic little remake projects over the years which not only look better but have updated the gameplay in general for a modern apporuch Adams daughter over Adam himself is just silly Then there's the music...I can hear some good stuff then other times it falls flat
The art style is missing that grittiness of the old games, but the game play looks excellent, I have no complaints there. The music doesn't sound as impressive as previous games though. Is that really the boss battle music? if it is, then that is really disappointing, it didn't have anywhere near the same impact as previous boss battles in SoR. To be honest, the whole transition from normal gameplay to boss battle was disappointing, it didn't feel like they were about to go up against the toughest opponent in the level. It just felt like any other enemy to defeat.
Grafics are OK Music is bad Sound FX are Horrible Game Play looks OK Ai looks terrible Sorry Sega but you are not getting my money with this.
The sound FX is truly horrible. The sound FX of bodies hitting the ground gets annoying quick. The music is boring.
After Sony Mania they had all the time to shine again, and they do this.
This looks better than the New Battletoads game, but still... I grew up with Warner Bros Cartoons, Chuck Jones, MGM Tex Avery and Disney, Akira, Miyazaki and all the anime from the 80's... and this is the best you can do these days?
Why have they changed the graphics style from the original? It now looks cartoony/comic book style. Horrible!
It's a very simple thing to fix. They should just add a filter that makes things look grittier. If they don't add it, then I am hoping somebody releases a mod for it on the pc version.
Something else I just noticed, the enemies don't grunt when they have been been hit to the ground or killed. I'm hoping that is fixed before it's released. I feel like the sound of the game needs an extra kick to it.
Still will never beat the gorgeous pixel art from the originals.
What an atrocious looking addition to an amazingly classic game. For shame.
The cartoon art style doesn't mesh with the old games. It would be fine as a completely separate series, but like the Battletoads game it's missing a part of what made the old games visually cool. Also...How the hell does Axel fight so well with a shirt tied around his waist? As a kid, if I tried to run with one of those on it would instantly fall off, but this guy's Bear Knuckle-ing with ease.
