Ratings and Reviews
One of the best SEGA games ever!
I still remember when this game came out in the 1990’s. Street fighter 2 was huge in the arcades, and the brawler/fighting genre was booming! While this game wasn’t graphically as beautiful as Street Fighter, it was definitely a quality game in all respects. The graphics, controls, characters, music were all great! I’m actually still in awe at home great the entire soundtrack is, and the gameplay is just as fun as it used to be.
*Interesting fact: Final Fight, from Capcom was only available on Super Nintendo, and not released for Sega genesis. The SNES version was great, but didn’t include “GUY” as a playable character, and was only a one player game. The 2 player ability of streets of rage two was definitely exciting at the time. This was a great game to play with friends.
*Also, please re-release more games. I think Sega classics got COVID-19 in 2020, as no new classic games were released.
Save states broken
These Sega Forever games are fairly well-executed emulations of the Genesis/MegaDrive originals. If you’ve got a controller and a yen to play some Streets of Rage 2, this will do fine. That said, if you decide to invest the dollar or whatever to remove ads from the app, be advised that the cloud save function (and therefore ALL save states, as there are no offline saves) has been broken in the transition to iOS/iPadOS 15.
According to the correspondence I’ve received from Sega as part of the bug report I submitted in regards to this issue, they are aware of the issue and are investigating the cause, but a timeframe for a fix has not been made available.
If you are okay doing without save states (remember, most of the games under the Sega Forever banner didn’t have save functionality in their original releases at all!), there’s nothing else wrong with this release of SoR2. It’s a classic, and I’ll love it until I’m dead. Even that might not stop me playing it.
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.
