You guys are correct, as a snail simulator SoRII wins.

However, if you want a game filled with action in which you can run, roll and kick enemy asses, look no further than SorIII. No question about it. Pretty easy vote.

SOR 1 for Atmosphere and Setting, SOR 2 wasn't as Pretty but Played much Nicer and SOR 3 while it loses the Story I do have to Agree with lilaurl that SOR 3 is the Nicest in Gameplay. Not my Favourite just Plays Nice

SOR 1 for me is My Favourite still

This is a strange one for me.
Sure, SOR2 has 50fps, bigger sprites and better gfx.

But I like SOR1 better just because it´s 25fps and has smaller sprites.
It feels more complete and like a "one-piece" to me. Strange...

Just compared 1 and 2 once again.
I can't help myself but the overall atmosphere and gfx sets are much cooler in the first game IMO.

Streets of Rage 2 is the finest scrolling beat 'em up ever made.

Large sprites, awesome characters, and just the right amount of levels. And that epic soundtrack! The game was, and remains, gaming nirvana.

The first one was fun but alittle basic. The third one tried to add more to a winning formula, but in the end it couldn't better perfection. Abit like how Terminator 3 had no chance of being better than Terminator 2.

I agree the First is Basic in Comparison, But it is Stunning in it's Artwork that i'm sure you Agree on Sorry I am a SOR 1 Fan boy and Shoot me for Saying this but it's great on the Game gear and Master System too

SoR 2.

That said, I really think SOR 2 gets so much praise because it's a pretty easy game on the genre, so everyone enjoys it more. It's obviously well done, it has good level and enemy design, balanced gameplay and everthing, but nothing SorR 3 doesn't have (sans Yuzo Koshiro). But 3 is a lot harder when compared to the previous 2 games.
