    Default which arcade (brawler/beat em up) had the best home version?

    I'd say Double Dragon 2 NES

    PS NOT A FIGHTA thnx

    Yes ggg is right I'm looking for gameplay!

    DDII on the NES was NOTHING like the arcade game, but one of the NES's best.
    Go, go Ackman!

    Hmmmm,

    Double Dragon 1 is all I can think of right now. I liked Final Fight as well.

    Final Fight CD on Sega CD, no doubts about it.
    These cartridges are dirty as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!

    Are you looking for accuracy or play?

    DDII on the NES was NOTHING like the arcade game, but one of the NES's best.

    Final Fight on the Sega CD loses color, has all the levels, all the sprites, and one hell of a great soundtrack.

    Turtles in Time on the Super loses a few bosses, but is otherwise dead on.

    Combatribes is just about perfect, missing 3-player support only.

    Wouldnt one of the Mega Drive double dragons have been the closest ports ? Certainly better than the NES ones (even the MS one was better).

    I'll go with Final Fight. Too bad the SNES version was censored and missing a level.

    Best beat'em up?

    1st place goes to Beats of Rage or any variation thereof.

    2nd place is going to go to the Final Fight port on the upcoming Capcom compilation...at least I hope so.

    Aaron.

    well, the ps2 port of final fight doesn't really count..since i'm damn sure its going to be arcade perfect. almost every other game mentioned was released on less powerful hardware than the cabinet, which makes the good ones all the impressive.

    Am I the only one that thought that Final Fight One was better than Final Fight CD? I liked the extra content and replay value.

    As everyone else has mentioned...Final Fight CD for Sega CD was a fantastic port period (genre specific or otherwise). I loved the little audio additions Capcom threw in that the arcade version did not have (namely in the intro). As Slimedog has mentioned, Final Fight One was a pretty good port also... Final Fight CD just has a warmer spot in my heart.

    Was there ever a proper home port of Capcom's Aliens vs. Predator?

    I always wanted Sonic Fighters to get an arcade conversion, so glad its part of Sonic Gems now.
