Streets of Rage 2 is a well-crafted iPhone port, capturing the original gameplay well and offering Bluetooth multiplayer to boot.
That said, it all comes down to how badly you need Streets of Rage 2 on the iPhone. The game holds up surprisingly well, a true testament to its greatness, but the lackluster audio and high price lessons the appeal.
Slide to Play
There's no doubting the greatness of Sega's classic Genesis games, especially Streets of Rage 2, but that emulator has got to go.
I've beaten Streets of Rage 2 on Genesis dozens upon dozens of times. I love the game. And I think it holds up over time. But the iOS controls simply do not work for this type of game. The D-Pad control leads to pain (suffer for your games!) and my fingers took up too much screen to see half of what was going on. It's a bad experience, one you should avoid.
