Ratings and Reviews
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 bought this app when it first debuted and the sound and music were subpar at best. Now that it’s reintroduced, the sound and music are 100% better. While I wasn’t fond of having to pay another $2.11 for it to get rid of the ads, I don’t mind supporting them if they’re working on improving the games and getting more titles onto iOS.
A great shot of nostalgia however...
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.
