Summary

Grand Upper

The Good

Streets of Rage 2 was almost faultless. It took the elementary layout of SOR1 and gave it a fuel injection. Better character play, more moves, great backdrops & excellent music made this an extremely playable game. I have not stopped playing it for 10 years.

If only the games industry had kept the standard of games this high.

The Bad

It's a very basic plot, but this does not impede your enjoyment.

The Bottom Line

If you have never played a scrolling beat-em-up this is where to start. You will not look back.
