Nah I also mentioned it in light way because if you want to find more games like these beat em up is the term to go
actually in our arcades they were also called fighting games.

>actually in our arcades they were also called fighting games
In the 90s, games like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and Tekken were interchangeably called beat em ups or fighting Games, because beat em up was an umbrella genre just like shooter, or racer, but I've never heard of games like Final Fight or Streets of Rage called fighting games.

My favorite fighting game is Aladdin for the SNES. It has better hit detection and nicer backgrounds than Final Fight.

>> No.4688614

- Well Final Fight was the first belt scroller in arcade so I'm biased.
- The best one however would be Aliens vs Predator.
- Honorable mention for Cadillacs and Dinosaurs

Streets of rage 2 is the worst game in the series

>> No.4689572

Reasons why Streets of Rage 2 is garbage in comparison to the other games in the series.

Lets begin with the meat of the game
The combat in SOR2 is incredibly slow and unresponsive, theres huge delays on everything moving and attacking is not fluid, the super attacks in the game punish the player with huge chunk of health loss and are more or less completely useless outside of committing suicide unlike the other games which limit but dont punish the player for smart use of specials.

SOR2 also has no coop/team moves, throwing the other player in the other games resulted in a powerful special attack which was both fun and rewarding, also holding the other player from the back gave them access to new moves like a long range kick that could knock down multiple enemies and vault attacks, these are COMPLETELY missing from SOR2

Another feature missing from SOR2 is the Fatguys, a staple of the series while they have a sprite in game they simply function exactly like normal enemies and can be thrown normally with no repercussions.

>Level Design
Another huge flaw in SOR2 is the level design. Levels in SOR2 are nonsensical and completely unfitting for the games setting, "a pirate ship" "an alien hive" "a baseball field" its just stuff thrown together with no rhyme or reason.
Aesthetics is only the tip of the iceberg with SOR2 however, stages in SOR or extremely short with many bosses being copy pasted and reused over and over again from previous stages giving the game an overall unfinished feel, also once again the game removes series staples such stage hazards like pits, hazardous factory machines and others, and while the game has an excuse for lift stage it is completely impossible to actually throw someone over the side making it just another generic level.

While generally being praised as having good music what most people dont know is that all the music in SOR2 is entirely 100% stolen

It's a shoelace scroller thats what they called them in Japanese arcades

Corkscrew Blow is a freaking loser. Why is he so obsessed with a shitty game like Streets of Rage 3? At least upgrade yourself to something like Alien vs. Predator.

>> No.4690760

It's good but the bosses in typical konami fashion are junk only beatable by very specific tightly executed exploitation.

>> No.4690765

Agree with this, AvP is a perfect game from every aspect, the weapons routing, the moveset, the enemy count and variation, the music and atmosphere, the pace. Everything about it is spot on, i clear it on hardest dips for fun a few times a week with the predators, still not cleared with a human.

Best beat’em up for me is probably double dragon arcade. Such a wide variety of methods to crowd control and attack, where later titles focus more on move variety and flashy attacks. I much prefer beatemups with a focus on controlling the battlefield than “look, we added more sprites with different combos!”

>violent storm
I was a bit harsh here and relearning the game atm, it's just a couple bosses that require dildo strats namely the wrestler,, the cunt with the bin lid and the last boss in particular.
