Streets of Rage 2 is the second installment of the beat 'em up trilogy, and definitely my favorite. Greatly improving on the previous game, Streets of Rage 2 offers longer, more interesting and challenging levels, new characters to play as, new enemies and bosses, and also new game mechanics. Having spent a lot of my childhood on this game, it was great to finally play it again after so long.

Pros:
+ Simple controls
+ Local co-op
+ Gamepad support (I used a PS3 controller)
+ A feeling of nostalgia
+ Pixel art graphics (I love them)
+ Longer levels
+ Better level design with more interesting locations
+ New characters, enemies, bosses and weapons
+ Displays enemy health bars
+ Special technique instead of calling in a police car
+ Has a balanced life bar (can take more hits before death)

Cons:
- Too easy to accidentally grab your co-op partner
- When multiple enemies attack you at once, a glitch can occur where you can die almost instantly
- Special moves take away some health
- Grabbing enemies while holding a weapon makes you drop the weapon
- Enemies hide off screen all the time

Score: 8/10

I enjoyed this much more than the original streets of rage. They have removed the cool call for back up button and replaced it with a crappy special move that uses up your own health. They have also introduced anoying flying enemies that are really difficult to work out exactly where they are because to the 2.5D graphics. Aside from that it is pretty similar to the original so I can't put my finger on why I liked it so much, perhaps it is because the easy mode is that bit easier so I didn't find it as frustrating. But this is a classic that is well worth a play.
