Final Fight 2 is the SNES-exclusive follow-up to Capcom's legendary brawler. It features new playable characters, stages, enemies, and most importantly, two player gameplay. It's a globetrotting adventure that plays exactly like the original.
After the destruction of the Mad Gear gang, Metro City slowly returned to normal.
Cody and Jessica went on a vacation together and Guy went back to his training schedule.
Haggar also returned home and continued to rule Metro City as mayor. Secretly the Mad Gear gang were regrouping.
Now, the Mad Gear gang are ready to strike back at those who opposed them. Their first move is to kidnap Guy's fiancee, Rena and her father, Genryusai.
When Rena's sister Maki learns of this, she immediately contacted Haggar for help.
Hello. This is mayor Mike Haggar.
Mike, it's me Maki. You have to help me. The Mad Gear gang have kidnapped my father and sister!
What?! The Mad Gear gang are back? But how...?
That doesn't matter. I found out that the Mad Gear are heading for Hong Kong and I'm going after them.
The Mad Gear gang must pay for their crimes. I'll meet you in Hong Kong.
I owe you and Guy so much, please let me go with you Mike. Besides I love kick'n butt.
Like Final Fight 1, the US version of this game changed the female characters to dudes because of Nintendo's policies.
Chun-Li and Guile from Street Fighter can be seen in the background at a few points in the game.
Final Fight 2 is easily the worst game in the series. Everything about it seems flat and uninspired compared to the original. The enemies are mostly pushovers and the combat can become surprisingly tedious at times. However, it's still a solid two-player brawler that's well above average for the SNES. It's just really disappointing considering its pedigree.
