Wanting to get this as it looks fun. But reading through some of the comments I think some of us on here have to accept we don't have the reflexes we had 20 odd years ago.

 

Will most probably wait for a sale as I really like Streets of Rage 4 ,not completed it yet but it's a good stress reliever for this old fella.

 

Finished it on my first go using Tygra Loris Biaggi on "easy", so it's definitely a matter of just getting the hang of it I reckon.

Proper goofy arcade style endings are a very nice touch too.

 

K. Koala 8 out of 10  :)

Honestly, I wouldn't let our moans put you off. It's brilliant, just with a much higher skill-ceiling than the original had. My main problem is that I'm trying to be too fast, and so hit the button before the disc is near me which makes me slide away from it and thus lose the point.

 

Let me put it this way ... Despite having it on Xbox and PC, I've already talked myself out of buying it on Switch twice this week. My PS4 barely gets powered on these days, but I know that eventually I'll own it there as well. And this with me completely unable to win a game! Because it is so obvious that it's going to take time to GIT GUD. Right now it's like that 1st month in Street Fighter II, wondering how the hell Ryu did that magic fireball thing...

Don't forget to use the new counter move, where you essentially give the disc a quick slap sending it instantly back to the opponent.

First play on easy:

I thought y'all said this was meant to be hard! :P

 

Seems like I lucked out in character choice (I always start with an all-rounder); interesting that apparently the speedy characters are the hardest to win with; like the opposite of fighting game logic! Looking forward to trying other characters now, and seeing their endings (don't skip the start of the credits, you get what's clearly a character-specific ending; only a couple of illustrations, but Delys's was good fun).

 

Dropped two continues [fuck the casino level, and also dashing out from under a lob in the decider...], regained one from points, and won the final match in straight sets. Now to find out what the buttons that aren't A and B do!

The online multiplayer for this is flawless in my experience. Up to 400 in the world after a 7 winning streak. 

 

People that pick stages with bumpers can fuck off though😆

Not really getting this, as a newcomer. When the ball lands on the sand, is there a way to pick it up or do anything? It always just waits a moment then gives 2pts.

 

Like to know that too. Anything that can be done in such situatons?

It depends on how "dead" it is. If the disc isn't completely settled (i.e. it's bouncing/rattling on the floor) and you're on it you can drop shot it back over the net (B button on Xbox). If it's lying completely flat, the only recovery available is if you have a charged super bar; activating your super if you're close to the disc will launch it back into the air, grounded or not.

Sometimes special shots are being performed ("super sonic shoot") without my pressing any special button combinations, just normal ones. Why is that?

 

If you stay under a dropping disc you'll see your character charge up. Hitting a button at full charge will use a super style attack.

I've decided that this is the worst game of all time, in fact, after a slightly frustrating runthrough of arcade mode with the intention of popping a couple of the arcade-specific challenges:

Worst of all, if I hadn't mistimed my leap in the hot dog minigame I'd have won both awards; the leap would have carried the frisbee (more than) the ten metres it needed to clear 200, and in turn nabbed me an extra 5,000 points in technical award that would have comfortably won me the Kingjammer achievement. Argh.

I gave this a go today, just in the arcade mode.

 

Wow, I don't think I've ever bounced off a game so quickly.

 

Maybe I just hate the aesthetic, I honestly don't know what it is. The movement controls do fell a bit woolly though, but that might just be my aging 360 pad.

Seems like they had a few editions (standard, first ed; and lim.ed.) since launch.

 

This one seems to be yet another (fourth) edition that's actually available in stores, and has just been released over here in the EU. Street date for the UK is June 17.
