That'd be the theme park area, it's got everything! Dirty knife-men, some unruly arcade-playing ruffians, pirates, ninjas, exploding eggs, a big long-necked alien, and then Blanka, as if all that wasn't enough!

Probably the first level, the music is my favourite in the whole game, and each section of it flows nicely into the next. To finish it off with that back alley brawl in the rain... Awesome.

I have a soft spot for level six, going inland from the beach to face off against two previous bosses with the long road to the final boss stretching off in the background. Quite epic

Im also with the first level.

The music plays a massive part, but also the detail in the neon background and the seedyness of the bar is just fantastic. It sets the tone for the rest of the game perfect.

Ah well, never mind. By the way, a 'proper' SoR2 score is only about 15,000 more than yours... :lol: Not that proper, really.

The first stage, because of the brawl in the rain at the end. And I love the stage with the diagonally travelling elevator. Purely because the music goes all hardcore!

Yeah, I also like the second to last stage and also the final one. Both feature epic elevator sequences that really feel like a struggle for survival.

The end of the factory level is particularly special with your character beating the crap out of two robots which EXPLODE upon defeat. Absolutely epic.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I like the first stage, mostly because of the music. It sets the pace for the rest of the game.

See I've just posted how much I hate the attraction level - yes it's an attraction - the level goes 'sidewalk outside of fairground - arcade - tourist attraction' the misty section is a haunted house type place, I guess the long necked boss is an animatronic - and I do hate that misty section, it's horrible claustraphobic, the power-up boxes blow up and that bloody Blanka clone gets right on my nerves, even now he doesn't give me any gip anymore because I'm over 10, I still resent his presence - but it's undoutably my favourite level also, it has pirates, ninjas and aliens in it!
