    My initial excitement has been a bit lowered by the overall look of the game but too soon to judge obviously. Fingers crossed they nail it elsewhere

    Can see this going down as a nice Nintendo Switch game.

    Took Sega long enough.

    Day one.

    Loved the original games so this is a nailed on purchase for me.

    Loved the originals but I'm not a fan of the cartoon graphics

    Like others I'm not keen on the art style. But I'll keep my eye on it.

    Wish it was in the vein of Sonic Mania visually. A throw back to the style of the originals. This looks a bit too modern indie

    Needs to be more SOR1/2 and less SOR3.

    They had better hire the bloke who did the music for the original!

    Let's hope they get a top music producer. 1 and 2 had amazing music that made a good game into a classic. Same producer who done Revenge of Shinobi, 3 of the best Mega Drive games, sound wise, that really challenged what was produced by the superior snes chip. The Mega Drive classics that's just came out on the xbox, ps4 and PC has online multiplayer for SoR 1,2 and 3, so this will do very well just to be half as good as 1 and 2!

    2's soundtrack is probably my favourite in all of gaming.

    Finally Sega. Shame about the art style, but will reserve judgement until it comes out. Streets of Rage 2 is one of my personal top games of all time.

    Yes, they had better get Yuzo Koshiro back.

    Loved these games on the Mega Drive - but this looks a bit poo, hating the art style, far to manga (or whatever it's called)!

    Well, Blaze has been toning up them thighs for this one hasn't she! :o

    In seriousness though, really tempting, not as keen on the look as they could have done, but at the same time are you better to whip our the emu & SOR1/2 (3 if you feel that way!) and just crack on again with what you KNOW is awesome? :)
