The "snipers" in Cannon Fodder.

I put snipers in inverted commas because they're actually armed with rocket launchers, rather than sniper rifles. With a clear line of sight they can shoot at you before you can even see them on screen and if you're standing around then one shot can wipe out your whole unit.

Jet is easy as fuck to solo.

The only problem is when you have him and more than 1 people on screen. Then you have a big fucking problem.

One way to do major damage on him, by the way, is to trigger him to charge up his "fly up, do an angled kick" move. Then just move up/down to a different plane, he'll miss you clean, and as long as he doesn't fly too far, he'll be open to ground combos or even throws (you have to be really tight to do throws, normal combos are simpler to do).

This is how those TAS speedrun freaks do Max's Atomic Drop on Jet.

Try this:
If it's going to swoop to the left, run to the left. If he goes right, go right.
Then, most importantly, jump when he's swooping down. You'll dodge him, and you can land a few hits mid-jump by turning around.

Try it until you get the right timing. Then these guys will be a piece of cake. The only danger would be running into something else inadvertently.

Ninjas aren't difficult as long as you have space to deal with their zoning attacks. Also, make sure you remove their weapons as fast as possible.

R.Bear is annoying due to his speed and fast recovery. But, you can abuse his AI as long as you aren't interrupted. Do a standing special when he stands up - he'll try uppercutting you, but will miss due to you having invulnerability at that time; and you won't hit him either cause he also has a small invulnerability period when standing up. But that time is short enough that you can already hit him once he whipped that uppercut.
So, knock him down, do a standing super as he stands up (he'll try countering and miss), and then punish him.

Abadede has high damage and that break-out move, but otherwise he is not difficult. Just make sure you press A on the first hit of his ramming punch to avoid most of the damage, and try to not get grabbed by him.

Kickboxers however are pieces of shit.

SOR3 is just annoying to play. and there isn't anything really satisfying about the gameplay.

SOR1 is just cozy as fuck. infinite jabbing enemies while that god tier music is playing in the background..

SOR2 is just really satisfying to play. jab, jab, grand upper.. feels good, really good. Max, atomic dropping into a crowd of multiple enemies for massive damage.. Skate, taking out crowds like no other with his overhead throw... Blaze, uh... um.. forget aobut her.

Anyway, SOR3 doesn't have anything like that. something that makes you feel good. all the characters play the same.. all the specials are practically the same thing and they do too little damage. you'll end up just doing a couple jabs, grabbing and throwing.

I wish they didn't include the level 3 blitzes, they're overpowered as hell, and it's annoying losing a life to the twin sisters in SOR3 (they're easy in BK3 though). the only satisfying thing about SOR3 is blaze's katana special and the massive damage it does followed by a neutral throw. That's the only thing that is SOR2-esque in terms of effect and damage, besides the lvl3 blitzes.

SOR2 > the other two games.

i don't care how you rank the "other two". SOR2 is the best of the series and that's just a fact.

>> No.2150171

I like SoR2, but they missed basic shit that was standard on SoR1 and BK3 brought them back, like the team attacks and enviromental gameplay missing on SoR2, like the trains, machines crushing you, bottomless pits etc, that shit make the gameplay SoR2 a lot more standard to play.

The basic thing in a beat em up would be how well the fighting system works (hitboxes, combos, cancelling, balance, AI, etc), that's the spine of the game, and SOR2 does that god damn perfect.
The environmental hazards are fluff. Any beat em up without them would still play fine. But none of them could do without a good fighting system.

So no, environmental gameplay is not "basic shit that was standard". And the fighting system in SOR2 is so tight that it more than makes up for the lack of those. Plus you still have bikers, grenades, and exploding robots, to spice up things.

>>2150160
>SOR3 is just annoying to play. and there isn't anything really satisfying about the gameplay.

upgraded blitz attacks (3-star dash attacks were awesome), throwing enemies into pits, all the weapon specials moves, ability to break free from holds, branching paths, playing as Shiva. Team attacks were also cool but I don't think we ever used when we were playing multi every weekend back in the 90s (had a pirate BK3 cart).
There are also lots of secrets. First time we noticed that we could select a Kangaroo at a continue, it was the coolest shit ever.

It's the level design that really fucks up the game. It just gets super fucking boring on many levels. The energy charge for the super moves also slows down the gameplay a bit (get grabbed once, use a super to free yourself, get grabbed again, you have to wait until they finished with you or you risk losing 1/5th of your life with an uncharged super move). But worst of all, you can't hit out-of-screen enemies, and the AI is very stupid compared to SOR2.

Also note that whenever I say SOR3 I mean BK3, and whenever I say SOR2, I mean SOR2 as played on Mania.

The ninjas I usually deal with by being armed. Step diagonally when they're knocked down and they'll ALWAYS hop forward when getting up and you can punish them easily with the pipe/sword. Unarmed it's a different story, usually involving a lot of waiting and cursing. God, they're fucking annoying.

Bear I usually deal with a sword on 5 or pipe on 7. Pretty reliable. Other way is to go diagonal to force the jump attack which if dodged gives you half a second to punish. Pretty easy with Sammy & Blaze.

Abadede is move in diagonally, 2 stading punches and forward+A. Unless you're Axel in which case, grand uppah with no punches.

Kickboxers is usually throw, throw, throw. Which isn't much help in 6. The annoying thing (as with the bikers) is their ridiculous speed and their 2 frame ko kick (or punch for the bikers). Fucking bitches.

Fuck the dominatrices in SoR1. The first ones you encounter are fine, but the late-game ones do this annoying thing where they crouch after being hit AND THEYRE INVINCIBLE UNTIL THEY GET BACK UP.

You have to take a pot shot, back off and let them get back up, take another pot shot, let them get back up again, etc etc. It's fucking bullshit.

Also the dual boss where it's two guys with freddy krueger claws.

Can't you just grapple / throw them? It's been a long time since I've played the first game, so I can't recall.

Honestly it's no different from all the RPGs wherein you have a powerful healing item you're saving for a desperate situation, and by the end game you have like 8 of them and even then you don't use them.

This fucker from Thunder Force V.

I can beat just about the entire game without getting hit (too much), but I can't ever figure out how to dodge this one attack. And if I don't have the Free Range weapon, it takes an eternity to whittle down his health.

Although the medusa heads were painful in 2D when it came to 3D there was no point on having them in the game. They still fucked up jumps but most of the time you couldn't see them due brightness choices in areas also they spawn behind you.

Don't worry too much. These guys are completely powerless if you're behind anything whatsoever that blocks their line of sight, even by a pixel. If you have to rush them, do it with hit-and-run using SSG or else stun-lock them with the plasma rifle. BFG of course eliminates the problem entirely.

This bitch. I can beat Batman Returns on Mania with lifes set on 3, but sometimes she costs me 2 lifes and its pretty much over then. I know her pattern, but it still can be a pain in the ass, when she is about to kick you, she kicks you, no matter what you do. You can block but that will get you in even worse situations sometimes.

I think there is an exploit where you can grab her and headbutt her over and over, but it doesnt always work.
