Streets of Rage 2 is a sidescrolling beat-em-up that was first introduced on the Sega Genesis system back in 1992.  Players could choose from series favorites Axel and Blaze as well as newcomers Skate and Max. One of the biggest changes from the original game came in the form on individualized special attacks.

Each of the characters now had their own special finishing attacks as well as super moves performed by pressing forward, forward, attack. Whereas the original only had the police car rocket launcher special move for everyone of the characters. (Which I still think was damn awesome.)
