Streets Of Rage or Final Fight

Post by slayer6000 » Thu Apr 28, 2011 11:41 am

Which is your favourite, I am talking about the whole series not just one particular game. For me it's Streets of rage, but i think thats mainly because im more of a Sega fan over nintendo (which is that my mates played it on) i did play it back in the day but it was on the Amiga,
I do enjoy Final Fight, but if i had a choice i would pick Streets Of rage any day
This week i av mostly been playing dreamcast

Err, Streets of Rage 1 or 2? Streets of Rage 2 is easily better than Final Fight, but Final Fight is easily better than Streets of Rage 1.

Final Fight is good but its just nowhere near as involved as the SoR games.

Streets of rage.Final fight was bit of let down on the mig.But then the programmer only had an A500 type specs to work on.

This. ^^
Final Fight and SOR1 were brilliant in their time, but both seem quite dated now and had a pretty limited number of different moves your characters could do compared to SOR2. I think it's certainly aged infinitely better and still plays as fresh and polished now as it did then.

When you think you've got problems you don't really need,
They're maybe not as bad as they seem,
Cos in a world full of misery, with hatred and greed,
Your problems are another man's dream.

Hmm that' quite a tough one as I love both. Final Fight 2&3 are really underrated next to SOR 2 imho.

Final Fight = Best Series
SOR 2 - Best game

Final Fight for me definitely. The arcade original was/is superb in my eyes with it's big sprites & grimy locations. The villains were always the stars of the show & have also gone on to star in other Capcom fighters together with Cody & Guy. Although Haggar has been used more sparingly (Saturday Night Slam masters & Final Fight Revenge). Don't really share the SOR2 love though, as it doesn't seem to do much more that FF apart from additional special moves. The characters are much smaller too which can be explained by the fact that it was developed on a Megadrive rather than an arcade machine. Final Fight 3 expands the move set to SOR2 levels so the series remains number one for me.

I think why many people prefer SOR over FF is because;
1) They are Megadrive owners
2) because FF was developed on an Arcade machine any ports to less powerful consoles/computers hardware meant that some details/aspects were lost in the conversion process each time leading to an inferior version. (Although this only applies to the original game of course!)

Final Fight on MCD much better than SOR 1.

SOR 2:Outstanding, nothing comes close for my enjoyment of the genre.

SOR 3:Very dissapointing.....So, errr, a draw? :? I need 'em both.

I always enjoyed Streets Of Rage more than Final Fight, I especially like SoR 1 over SoR 2 for some reason. I've played Final Fight many times, but really don't like it as much as the Streets Of Rage games.

Final Fight is still my favourite scrolling beat em up, I know it's not supposed to be very good but Revenge is the one game I've always wanted to play but never got the chance to.
