This indeed will be a very small section.

Dare I be the first...............

Sorry lads and lasses, just not for me, was never taken by the Scrolling Beat em up, it all just seemed "mah" to me...

walk...pick up knife, throw knife...oooo....knocked that blokey woman thing down....whats this button do, oh punch, ooo and a kick, whats C do, ah a special....walk...punch punch kick....get knocked down, eat scabby burger somes scum has left, kick, special, kick...boss....dead!

Thrilling

I just dont get on with these games, it isnt from lack of trying, Ive played a fair few from Double Dragon 2 on the NES with my best mate, to Final Fight on the Sega Mega CD, even all three of the bare knuckle/SOR games, but I just....get....walk...punch...kick.....bored!

So SOR2 (and all scrolling beat em ups) - It's not for me :roll:

I dunno, that'd be like asking me why C&C isn't for me when I hate pretty much all RTS games.

Although its not a bad game, I just dont understand why this game is held in such high regard. Skate and Max are rubbish characters, the levels are bland and the whole game just feels way too much like just another Final Fight clone, where as the first game had a lot of individual character.

Hating SoR2 is like hating the Megadrive, since it's the best game on the console by far.

Thread necromancy! I must admit I prefer SOR1 to 2. I think I have more nostalgia for it thanks to playing two player with friends AND I can beat 1, but not 2. Maybe I just need to play it more.
