Summary

Took me Five minutes to complete...

The Good

I love Streets of Rage style fighting and I love D&D, this game mixes them. It was good that *both* the male and female characters were skimpily dressed. Usually, it's just the woman, and seeing as I am a straight female, this can get boring.

The Bad

It was TOO easy, it took me and a friend (on two-player mode) 5 mins to complete. Compare this to Streets of Rage 2 - which we had played minutes earlier. SOR2 was set over about 8 levels, GAII was set over 5, and they were much shorter.

The Bottom Line

The original game is better.
