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.
The very best game in the world
I love this game because me and my cousin play it all the time and the characters are pretty cool it’s 80s which I really like and well there is a kind of a bad part that you can pick up a nice pose but the funny thing is is that like the graphics are kind of old so they can’t really there’s no blood so it’s pretty cool overall and I will that’s why I would read it five stars and you get to choose from lots and lots of characters a couple like five maybe and there’s some pretty cool cool stuff and it has its own stars to see like drum speed and stuff like that anyways that is the best game that I could probably ever plan my life so that’s why I feel about it
This game was & still is one of the best games I’ve ever played. It made me a fan for Beat Em Ups. I was wondering what new game to download & thought it would be dope if there was a mobile version of Streets of Rage. Then boom! Both SoR 1 & 2 were both available for download since forever lol. My only issue after playing is the controls. They don’t feel as responsive as they should even after adjusting the size & their location which can get in the way of enjoying the game to it’s fullest potential. Besides that, nothing I could love more than Raging while I’m on the move
This is my favorite game of all time. When I was little I used to get super excited when my dad would let me play it, a few years ago I went as far as to buy a sega genesis just so I could play this game, fast forward a few more years and I got gifted the anniversary mini console with all the games and it didn’t have this one but thankfully I already owned a hard copy. Needless to say, really happy to have it once more on my iPad for on the go happiness. Please bring SHINOBI III to the platform as well.
A trip to memory lane in 90s
This game is an absolute blast. With accurate mame behavior and awesome music/sound effect. Although this game is much more enjoyable with a controller. Since Apple supports Xbox wireless controllers; it’s highly recommended to play this game with a controller. I’m saying this from my own experience! You won’t be disappointed. Although, ad system is a bit annoying. You willing to pay for it, I guess this wouldn’t be a problem anymore.
Beats on streets to go
Sor 2 is one of the greatest genesis games with one of the greatest soundtracks ever. I have it on genesis I have it on Dreamcast i have it on ps4 and now i have it in my pocket to take with me wherever i go. There’s not really much i can say about this game that hasn’t been said by someone somewhere but i will say this. If you love beat em ups if you love 90s dance/club house music than download this game. You’ve got absolutely nothing to lose.
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.
Only one problem
The game is amazing, I had a Sega Genesis growing up and the game is spot on. The only problem isn’t the game, But the save states. Everyone knows if you watch too many ads for rewards, they’ll stop giving ads and you can’t get them anymore. I’m usually fine by that but it’s a different story with the save states. If you use save states after every level, it’s gonna stop at stage 4 or 5, so one way to fix this is to not make people watch ads because regulars people won’t finish this game in one sitting unless it’s the weekend, or auto save after every level. If u fix this, I’ll give it 5 stars. P.S. I would really like a sor3 classic on the App Store
What i love: I love Streets of Rage 2 and being able to play it on mobile on the goal is amazing too. It has controller support so i am able to use my ps4 controller to play it and just but a controller stand for the phone so my controller can hold my phone while i play. The game runs smooth with not problem Suggestions - the only way to play 2 player mode is through wifi. The iphone is able to have more than one controller connected and many games have more than on controller support so i feel that they should add that feature here. - i play on an iphone 11 and i would like it if they had an option to stretch out the screen a little bit more. I like my games just a bit more bigger than the screen size availble.
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.
Unresponsive Controls mars an otherwise great experience
Presentation is well done. Everything is as you’ll remember from the console versions. I remember playing the previous iteration of this before Sega deleted it from the marketplace. The controls were much tighter. No less than 10 times the pause menu was activated by accident. I believe this is a design error, as the virtual “D-pad” is situated so close to the bottom of the screen that frequently pressing it will cause you to accidentally swipe up. This alone ruined the experience for me, as I quit after the 2nd stage.
It’s the same.
I love how after seven years, Fuze54’s review still holds true. I bought the first one and was highly dissatisfied with the quality of sound and frame rate, I still played it though because I was sure “they’d fix the mistakes by the sequel’s release”. How wrong I was, it literally sounds worse than the first one somehow. I didn’t even get past the character selection screen without closing the game, because what’s the point of even playing Streets of Rage 2 if the music’s already ruined? Please Sega, I was rooting for you when Sega Forever was first announced, but I’m starting to waver as I see it progressing. I’m sensing a strong sense of passion among you guys, a passion stronger than almost all other major video game companies, but a lack of initiative. Basically please don’t be indolent and portray that strong passion I know you have through your productions. Thanks. :)
You guys really made us disappointed with this one. there is real big problem, people download your games because of brand name when I downloaded this game it was free as soon as I opened game it asked for $1.99 for ad removal like really you guys should put that in disclaimer here before people should download it. Nonetheless, poor graphics in the game makes my experience sour screen which is not even half of my iPhone X is a bitter pill to swallow. If am downloading something from a good brand like SEGA at least people and I should expect more than this also for now I am uninstalling the game and will check for updates in future for better results. Thank you.
Way too many ads
Every time you pause, you have to watch an ad, everytime you save you have to watch an ad, between levels you have to watch an ad, when you want to load a game you watch an ad, you’re watching just as many ads as you are playing the actual game. Ruined completely by this. In between everything you do you have to watch 1-2 ads. This is a bit much and way too ridiculous. I love the games.. but now I’m just going to pirate them. I’m not dealing with the amount of ads you guys force people to watch into buying the game. Piratings happening a lot with these and losing money now for you. Thanks Sega
