Holy sh*t. Where the f**k did this come from?!
I always though I was a Sonic fanboy, and through the 90s I guess that was probably true, but now every time I go back to play on the old Sega console: it's always the Streets of Rage 2 cart that ends up being slotted in.
The game has really stood the test of time, too. There are a number of titles that I've returned to with fond memories of, only to find that they're now clunky and outdated. Not SOR2. It still plays beautifully.
SOR4 certainly looks pretty. I'm delighted that it's 2D! It's being made by the guys who did the gorgeous Wonderboy remake, so I have high hopes for it!
Looks like there might only be two playable characters, but one of them's Blaze, so who the f**k cares?
