Anything from Garou and Last Blade, both boast incredible looking stages. I also really like that blossom tree stage from Fatal Fury Special (?).

Yes I really like the Mai's stage from Real Bout Fatal Fury 2 which had a blssom tree I believe. Not to mention those fantastic ring out stages from the original Real Bout.

This is the PsOne version but the Dreamcast game has a better resolution.

From Last Blade 2, very atmospheric!

You just can't beat the sound of crashing waves & clashing swords :)

Christ on a bike, nice catches, people! :lol:

The last one I believe is indeed a fan edit, as it isn't proper 3D...but it's a damn good attempt, when you see it in motion. My favourites would have to be the 3 that preceed it though. That submarine one has sailors jumping ship in the background and allsorts of shenanigans.

And I've got the Another World stages...that tentacle made me a bit nervous when I first saw it rise up.

I've got that one on my list there. I've got Arthur Brown as the soundtrack to this stage.

I like the Jamaica stage from Super Street Fighter 2:

The Orbital Rings stage from Tatsunoko vs Capcom 8)
Image

Also like Street Fighter 4's Small Airfield (Africa) stage
Image

My favourites are in Soul Calibur on the Dreamcast though....such as Venice:
Image

and The Ruins of Ostrheinsburg Castle (Nightmare's stage)
Image

Pretty much all the Soul Calibur stages look great though. :)

A beat-em-up is a game like Streets of Rage.

In which case, level 1 of SoR2.
Ah, just realised that. If we're gonna talk strictly 'beat 'em ups' and not 'fighters', then my vote goes to Stage 2 (Alleycat Blues) of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time:

Looks great, and the music was superb :)

Tekken 6 has some great stages though, love the one based on La Tomatina Valencia Festival:-

The Snow stage from Virtua Fighter 4
Just for being one of those stages where it makes you think that Sega are being show offs.

Was about to post this one. Great stage.

I played the game (sadly, the PSX version) yesterday for the first time and it was raining in the city where I live so I could relate quite well: A rainy cityscape on the right side and the ever-glowing, ever-tempting world of games and entertainment on the left - genius. If only they had proper Japanese arcades around these parts as well... I need to move to Tokyo I guess.

And btw, Last Blade II in its entirety is a piece of game art, long before the often cited Shadow of the Colossus and Ico.

Also the Dead Rising stage. Love all the zombies wandering around behind the action.
