Anyway, about the game. It's fucking awesome. Way better than its predecessors, especially Streets of Rage 2 (SOR2 had the worst gameplay of the three, and yes, I know you nostalgia faggots disagree for some reason). Although I'd love to see Blaze return in her red dress, silver suits her fine. Poor Axel, his new clothes are ugly though.
Skate also looks better in the US version.
Oh my ass! Nostalgia faggots only disagree that the difficulty is a bunch of bullshit compared to sor2 which challenges you by mixing shit up. This piece of fuck did nothing but add life bars, ridiculously up the damage and gave stupid invincibility frames. Better difficulty? bullshit better gameplay? depends on your tastes, sor3 brings faster arcade like gameplay while sor2 was slower paced and simplistic but still challenging. Neither can be better than the other sor3 brings new things, no shit it's a sequel.
Pros (compared to BK3 and its predecessors):
-The gameplay was altered so now it's not a piece of cake anymore.
-You can attack while holding a weapon. Oh my god, Streets of Rage 2 was so annoying because of that.
-Skate, my favorite character, returned from the previous game.
-The music was pretty cool. Some of my favorite tracks are Crazy Train (fight w/Jet), Shinobi Reverse (fight w/Yamato), and Dance Club.
-The bosses were cool as hell. My favorite boss is Yamato, even though he gets like nine lives.
-The official art was improved from the previous game (which had hideous artwork.)
-I find mania much harder than this game, but maybe that's just me.
- Sammy biotch! fuck that soa shit.
- well if drunk axel, I have to piss blaze and hype on crack sammy is your thing that's cool I guess. the only thing I can agree here with is the baddies and the stages are pretty sweet
- All about tastes but I agree here too
- eh could've used a little more diversity than using shiva twice and making an axel clone. Yamato is an asshole, nuff said.
- some of it was others were fuckin' horrid
just to add some
-star moves, could've been better used but they're awesome
-special meter, definitely put a new spin on the system, I just wish the gameplay actually challenged you to use it.
-sprites are just love/hate here, I could go into detail but then I'd give you paragraphs, who wants that?
-new atmosphere, I guess this is just debatable, but I liked the change in pace and setting.
-The gameplay in this game is unfair sometimes. If one of the yellow punks slides into you, he takes off like 1/8 of your HP. :\
-Mona and Lisa returned and they're still cunts.
-Adam didn't make a reappearance and Skate still sucks.
-Yamato gets 9 lives. What the fuck! At least he's a pussy though.
-The perfect ending is really
hard to get. Beating Robot Y is easy; it's just that you have to kill him five times in three minutes.
-It was censored, but the stuff they censored isn't really much to bitch about.
-It's more than unfair, it's bullshit! They still go into a pattern *which made bk3 too easy in the first place* the only difference as I said above was the unnecessary changes, if they were given a smarter ai like in sor2 *before you even go there, I'm aware of how easy the game is, doesn't mean they don't play smart* It would be more challenging. It's basically back to this sor1 shit where "they're overpowered but once you find a pattern your a god" gameplay reigns supreme
-yup but that's not too much a con to me
-adam not appearing made me go wtf, he could've at least been a secret character, Sammy is meant to be a challenged character, he's much better in 3 imo.
-robotY.. *barf* I mean Neo X isn't that hard to beat, it's back to sor1 basics, remember the "OH JUMPAKEEK! move?"
- other than axel's piss colored shirt, bar a couple of stupid names and well electra I guess I can agree here.
- graphics again love/hate axel is fucking ugly as hell and looks like a damn drunk, everyone is dark skinned, seriously this shows that browning "realism" shit dates back to even retro days, cutscenes are hit and miss for me some are awful while others are pretty nice.
-the ai is stupid, again they aren't smarter just plain overpowered. Who the fuck thinks that upping shit like y.signals sliding damage would add challenge rather than just fucking the player over?
-story, no one too much gives a shit because it's a beat em up, but they could've tried harder if they were going to change shit up rather than just translating.
Now, about Bare Knuckle 3. I actually own a cartridge of BK3, and it's really easy. Too easy. The thing I hate most about this game is you get assraped everytime you use a special move without the bar charging up.
Who else loves SOR3?
I agree about bk3, too easy and the meter system fucks you everytime, it's ridiculous.
no love no hate, I just play the game.
