    Just did 6 hours straight. I’m crap though and I end up getting max health and stars on the restart screen. Keep changing the characters too. But this game is so much fun.

    Just replayed first four levels with Axel tonight.

    Nowhere near as fun as Blaze. Breezed through the first three levels (got hit twice in the first level only, which was annoying. Think there's a trophy for not getting hit as well) but was getting really bored with him come the fourth level and gave up. It's also my least favourite level of the game.

    Will try the others out tomorrow but found Blaze a much more interesting character to play as compared to Axel and glad I started with her.

    I do have SoR1 Axel unlocked so will give him a go as well.

    SOR1 Axel is a beast. Got my first S rank with him.

    @richyroo Thanks, good to hear. Will defo give him a go....although not holding up much hope for a S rank! :)

    Highest for me thus far is 2x paltry Bs.

    I was just thinking how awesome a Streets of Rage game on the Saturn would have looked, what with it being a 2D powerhouse and all that. So I was researching why one never appeared on the Saturn. Basically those were the days when everything had to be converted to crude 3D no matter how bad it looked and played. 3D was the future. It's a shame because imagine how great it could have looked in 2D with massive sprites and millions of colours.

    I couldn't find any Saturn footage, but here's a Dreamcast demo (that also got dropped)

    I believe Fighting Force was pitched as a Streets of Rage 4 for Saturn. When the pitch was turned down by Sega, they made it its own IP and released it on the PS1 and N64 instead, with no Saturn port available. In retrospect, the lack of a Saturn port was probably out of spite, as the Saturn only ever got the first Tomb Raider, despite the franchise's origins as an intended Saturn exclusive.

    But yeah, a 2D sprite based Streets of Rage on the Saturn would've been ace. It'd look similar to the Final Fight arcade, but it'd play much faster.

    Also, on topic, I bought Streets of Rage 4 earlier today and it is greeeeeeeeeat. Beautiful artwork, great soundtrack, punchy combat, responsive controls. It's everything I hoped it would be.

    Currently getting annoyed by the Ruby's. Just haven't worked out a decent way to counter their jump kick consistently, feels like I'm missing something obvious. Might just be a timing thing on my part.

    They're not even a late game enemy :p

    Bought this over the weekend - it really is excellent.

    It basically plays like SOR2 (from an Axel perspective, anyway) with a couple of small tweaks that make a big difference (ability to juggle, enemies bouncing off the edge of the screen back into the middle and Bloodborne-style recovery for using special moves). Art and music are both great and while the music may not match up to the original (what can?) there are some great tunes in there.

    Couldn't have asked for much more, brilliant stuff.

    Steam tells me that I have put in 59hrs into this game already. I think I am addicted.

    This is my game of the year so far.

    The one level (I think after you beat the Judo guy) where it throws a ton of regular enemies at you was absolute heaven, especially with the ability to partially juggle them.

    Was that the Dojo room on the Chinatown stage, with the millions of weapons on the floor? That is one of the trickiest sections in the whole game where things can go horribly wrong if you're not careful.

    Exactly right!

    Luckily me and my brother started punching like crazy and managed to keep a lid on it - he warned me that during his solo playthrough this part absolutely hammered him.

    The enemies all jump in from the same spot at either end of the stage. The trick is to have 1 person at each end standing in the right spot where you can just punch them as they come in. You need to time the punches right and you can deal with multiple enemies at a time. If you have one of those long weapons too, then this seriously helps.

    Developers have confirmed that they are currently working on three other “similar” titles.

    Golden Axe is probably one of them. Would like to see them tackle Shadow Warriors as I loved that game on the C64.

    Shadow Warriors was actually the first Ninja Gaiden game, so there have been plenty of follow ups to that.

    They could remake Shadow Gangs.

    I don't think they could afford the license :-)

    I imagine getting the image rights to Freddie Mercury was the biggest cost to development.

    Queen - The Musical - The Fighting Game.

    Although I do remember trying to convince work we should license Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds for a game. Sadly they didn't go for it.

    Bad Dudes vs Dragon Ninja could be ripe for a new version.

    having a go at this playing on my phone during work breaks using the new game pass app.

    I am really not very good at it.

    Next trailer has been released for the upcoming DLC and no surprises who the next character reveal is. Still looking forward to this though. Need an excuse to get back into it. Fantastic game.

    I'd be interested in a Golden Axe remake/reboot.

    A fresh faced Gauntlet would also be wonderful.

    Is there a release date for this DLC yet? I cant believe how good this game is. Every time I boot it up it's as if I had some how underestimated its greatness, even though I only ever talk about how great it is.

    I still play this regularly. Have about 120 hours on Steam, 35 on Switch and 45 on PS4. Yes it’s that good I triple dipped.

    Really looking forward to the DLC now. Max looks so awesome, one of my fav characters for sure.

    I've become addicted to getting huge hit counters. It's sometimes frustrating but also extremely satisfying to clear areas without taking a hit.

    I'd be super-keen for a new Golden Axe. Should probably play SoR4 first though.
