Didn't talk about this too much for the longest time since the release date and other details were up in the air for awhile, but it just launched today which I'll be getting soon. The character trailer shorts and things that were shown beforehand were pretty good, and game has gotten decent reviews so far.

Is up to four players offline, while two player online. Some are disappointed with the latter part, but with how out of touch games of this genre have been when it comes to online for the most part, I'll take what I can get. Couch co-op was how these type of games were born anyway.

The 4 player offlines a little disappointing, yeah.


Not sure if there's ways around that. I know there's "virtual LAN" programs, but for that you need LAN capability.



It's still great getting an official SoR game at all. The only thing the communities had to fill that gap is the OpenBor fan games, based off the Beats of Rage parody.

Some of the games that came out for that are really good too (Look up Legend of the Double Dragon, OpenBor).

In depth review from my buddy Sega Lord X.






He's the real deal, Sega runs in his blood. Very informative on gameplay naunces too.

With all there is to do and unlock, I would say so. The unlockable characters even include the SoR 1, 2, and 3 versions of everyone, down to the original sprites and everything, on top of the solid cast there already is in this game.

Streets of Rage 2 was my first experience with the series, but this is like a glorious homecoming, considering. Other throwbacks too like the hidden retro levels.

Been reading if you buy it from GOG, It hasn't got a lot of the online options which the Steam version has which is strange.

So is the famous Streets of Rage Remake essentially gone from official channels?


I read it got stopped, and then allowed to be put up on a Streets of Rages fan site.



I mean, I have all three Streets games plus a translation of Bare Knuckle 3, but I'm interested in comparing the fan work with the official 4.


Honestly, if they were a little bit smarter, the thing to do would have been to approach the creators about officially packaging a "completed" version, exclusive only if you buy SOR4, as a nice fan community easter egg.

Looks like its still available on Archive.org.


Like I said, I own all three SoR, so its not like I'm looking to pirate the thing. Just interested in how good the fan game is compared to the classics and the new kid on the block.

Wow.



https://mashable.com/article/streets-of-rage-4-review/



This might be the worst review I've ever seen.


"No checkpoints". That's like complaining about a tactical shooter not having a health bar.

And when they do make a game too easy they still complain about it.

Played this back in the day. It was alright, but kind of glad it was never the fourth SoR.

Yeah, that's why I play a fan translated Bare Knuckle 3. It really ****ed the game up, because of how they locked the true ending behind normal mode, meaning you couldn't even get around the problem with the easy difficulty.

Only thing for it back in the day was cheats, or maining Shiva after you unlocked him.

Didn't that happen a lot with some of the 8 bit/16 bit games? The difficulty level for the American release was Japan's hard level?

I have a vague memory that other games did this as well.

Dynamite Headdy did for sure. You can't take as many hits in the US release, and things that couldn't hurt you like effects during certain attacks suddenly became deadly.

I don't think it's nearly as unmanageable as Streets of Rage 3 though.

There was also palate changes, like a pink cat boss being changed brown. It also cut the story entirely. Japanese version had bosses talking to Headdy, which was scrubbed from the localizations for some reason.


Personally, I like the US game, which I got with the Steam Sega Genesis and Megadrive collection, but I have a fan translation for the Japanese version as well Absolutely legal too, Steam and a Sega worked out a deal where "mods" can be downloaded from Steamworks. And of course the only way to mod a rom is to "hack" it. It's a neat feature, but my god, the sheer amount of abuse is unbelievable. "Oh look, here's a mod for Streets of Rage! It's called...... Micky Mouse Castle of Illusion? And here's one for Streets if Rage 2 called Contra Hard Corps."


Steams pretty much given up trying to clean that stuff out, so if you ever wanted to play pirated games from within an authorized Steam launched program, you can do that.
