    You know what, id actually watch the streets of rage one. That might be a decent 90's cheese action film!
    Theyll more than likely screw every title up though :(

    I wonder if they could have spent this money better and made alot of sequels or remakes to the classics even instead?

    I agree, franchise stuff is generally awful quality. This isn't marketing current, popular items like angry birds stuff to kids where quality doesn't matter so much because the kids will want it anyway. This is old IP where you don't have the advantage of the game to aid the marketing. So it needs to be really good quality. Which brings me right around to my first sentence.

    Shinobi, Golden Axe surely its only old codgers like me that remember these kind of games. Maybe there has been more recent do-overs of these games that I'm not aware of. I stopped gaming at N64 and started again on PC about 5 years ago like a BAUWS. So I definitely missed a bit.
