Streets of Rage 2 is one of the best games from the Sega Genesis. The Side-Scrolling beat-em up genre was popular. More than a quarter century later, I still enjoy playing this game... the music, the sound effects, the gameplay... it melds together perfectly. There have been some pretty bad retro ports on iOS. (I’m looking at you Mega Man 2.) So, it’s nice to see Sega is working to preserve this piece of video game history. This game was almost lost again when Apple required all apps to be 64-BIT... which is a silly requirement for a 16-BIT era game. Regardless, Sega finally got it done. I was disappointed when restored purchases didn’t work, as I thought I bought this game before. I got mad and deleted the app. The 3.0.2 update fixed the problem. After watching a speed run of this game, I decided to give Max a shot. (Usually, I’d play as Axel or Blaze.) Wow, Max is one strong dude. Even though he’s slow, he does so much damage that it quickly speeds up fights. The game looks and sounds great. I turned up the volume on my iPad. The 4:3 aspect ratio is perfect for this game. The default control positions weren’t optimal, but fortunately they can be customized. At first, I wasn’t sure what the “1” button was about. This lets you do the dual button attack, so maybe it should have been labeled “b/c”. Sega did a great job on this game.
I grew up in the glory days of 16-bit gaming and seeing this game in the App Store brought back a lot of great memories. I absolutely loved the co-op gameplay to which my brother and I put countless hours into playing on the Genesis. We got the Sega Genesis Classics for the PS4 to relive the gaming moments of our childhood but, to our dismay, the lag when playing online was just unbearable. I was hoping the mobile version’s online co-op would be better than the console’s. Unfortunately, to play co-op, the other person needs to be on the same wi-fi network. My brother and I live a few states apart so re-living our childhood gaming sessions won’t happen anytime soon. Please, please, please change this aspect of co-op. Aside from that everything else about this mobile version is great.
Presentation is well done. Everything is as you’ll remember from the console versions. I remember playing the previous iteration of this before Sega deleted it from the marketplace. The controls were much tighter. No less than 10 times the pause menu was activated by accident. I believe this is a design error, as the virtual “D-pad” is situated so close to the bottom of the screen that frequently pressing it will cause you to accidentally swipe up. This alone ruined the experience for me, as I quit after the 2nd stage.
I love how after seven years, Fuze54’s review still holds true. I bought the first one and was highly dissatisfied with the quality of sound and frame rate, I still played it though because I was sure “they’d fix the mistakes by the sequel’s release”. How wrong I was, it literally sounds worse than the first one somehow. I didn’t even get past the character selection screen without closing the game, because what’s the point of even playing Streets of Rage 2 if the music’s already ruined? Please Sega, I was rooting for you when Sega Forever was first announced, but I’m starting to waver as I see it progressing. I’m sensing a strong sense of passion among you guys, a passion stronger than almost all other major video game companies, but a lack of initiative. Basically please don’t be indolent and portray that strong passion I know you have through your productions. Thanks. :)
You guys really made us disappointed with this one. there is real big problem, people download your games because of brand name when I downloaded this game it was free as soon as I opened game it asked for $1.99 for ad removal like really you guys should put that in disclaimer here before people should download it. Nonetheless, poor graphics in the game makes my experience sour screen which is not even half of my iPhone X is a bitter pill to swallow. If am downloading something from a good brand like SEGA at least people and I should expect more than this also for now I am uninstalling the game and will check for updates in future for better results. Thank you.
