SOR4 is not just better than Shredder's Revenge

Haven't tried either way, but the old ones I liked equally. TMNT was mostly nostalgia I think, since the series reboots were such a catastrophe. SOR4 does honestly look great and I wouldn't doubt if it's better. It's a bigger evolution, and not just a mostly throwback.

Always liked Donnie as my main, especially that long melee range. Plus I just love to watch Bo Staff spinny maneuvers even to this day thank to his influence. Also a technological genius? He was a genius AND a beast, but also a nice one. Haggar would probably be my second favorite fighter. Nothing like grabbing your enemy and smashing them around. Who needs armor huh, people scared to shit once they saw his gigantic build lmao.

SoR4 is definitely better.

Kind of a trade off with my girlfriend and I arguing on the topic of SoR4 (she believes it feels too "Capcom" and not "SoR" enough to meet on that level, but her favorite is also the first game, and she views SoR2 and 3 as kind of missing the point, so we butt heads on that all the time. I think SoR4 does a lot to match the mechanical nuances that made SoR2 and 3 such unique games in the genre itself while doing enough stylistically to feel like a stand-out.

Shredder's Revenge I... like well enough, but it's not quite the same type of appeal for me as the Konami TMNT games. I think it definitely doesn't suffer the unbearable weight of the imposter-syndrome Scott Pilgrim crumpled under, but I still don't think it really gets the whole picture of what those games felt like. Just my two cents.

So I've double dipped on both. Used to have the XBOX version of Streets of Rage 4 before I got the Anniversary edition on Switch.  I have Shredder's Revenge on Steam and physically on XBOX. 

But you know what? Hot take here

I think Final Vendetta is a better Streets of Rage 4 than Streets of Rage 4. Another game I've double dipped on, Steam and Switch. 

Final Vendetta gets the music right, the general vibe, the crunch when you attack enemies. It's the full package. I'm not saying Streets of Rage 4 is bad it's just not the Streets of Rage 4 I wanted.  With Sega making their own Streets of Rage 5 maybe I will get what I wanted there.
