Streets of Rage 4 is a blast from the past worthy of the future (TheSixthAxis)

TSA writes: "Back in the day, I didn’t play Streets of Rage 2 at the arcades, I didn’t even get to play it on the Mega Drive, no, I played it on the Game Gear. Alongside other reworked Sega home console classics like Sonic the Hedgehog, Shinobi, a Japanese import of Ganbare Gorby! and more, this kept me and my brothers sat on the upstairs landing right next to a power socket – no way were we going to be rinsing through half a dozen AA batteries at a time without a good reason!"

Streets of Rage 2 wasn't at the Arcade

VTKC53d ago

It actually was in arcades. I have even seen super mario before. The controls look weird for an arcade machine as it looks like a controlpad but alot bigger and is stuck on a solid structure thats attached to where you would normally have the controls for a arcade machine. I myself could not believe what i saw. We are talking 10+ years ago. I was at a seaside called Blackpool in the UK

If it did come to the arcade, it came after it came on Genesis. It was a Genesis first game and the series came about because Snes had an exclusive deal for Final Fight. Streets of Rage ended up being a better series at the end.

Yeah. It was definitely a Megadrive/Genesis game. The arcade version was a Mega-Play game, which is essentially a Megadrive in a Jamma cabinet. Either way, it sounds like the author thought SoR2 was an arcade game which got ported, which it wasn't. If you happened to play it in an arcade, you were still playing the exact same software

Yes Streets of rage was using the Sega Megatech and megaplay arcade boards.

The cartoon art style sucks arse.

The combat looks like a lot of fun but that art work is so visually unappealing.
