Riki.

  • Changed special forward + A;

One of the best Streets of Rage 2 hacks and a great beat 'em up!!

Reviewed By: RHZ on 03 Mar 2021

Really impressive hack!! This is my favourite Streets of Rage 2 hack!! The four playable characters from River City Girls feel great within the Streets of Rage 2 engine despite the different art styles. I also like the mix between the mini bosses and bosses from River City Girls with the standard enemies from SOR2. All four playable characters are fast, have a lot of different moves and are very fun to play to play with.

As it seems it’s not the final release, making a special title screen with the River City Girls logo would give this hack a more finished product feel. Changing some of the text from the opening and ending would also be great, just simply adding the names of the new four characters from River City Girls to link them with the original SOR2 story.

Another suggestion would be adding some songs from the first Streets of Rage game like Fighting in the Street, Moon Beach, Keep the Groovin’, Violent Breathing and Attack of the Barbarian in place of less memorable songs from Streets of Rage 2 like Spin on the bridge, Ready Funk, Too Deep and Jungle Base. It’d give the hack a different flavour from the vanilla SOR2 game and mix the best songs from both OSTs. If possible, it’d be awesome!!

Overall, this is a highly recommended hack for Streets of Rage and beat ‘em up fans!!
