what do I need on 3DS?

For the record I did pick up 3D Galaxy Force II, which is frickin' amazing for a 1988 arcade title! I've only recently come to realize how far ahead Sega was compared to the rest of the industry back in those days, in terms of their arcade hardware.

Sounds like the second game was what the first game was striving for.
In a lot of ways I think it's true -- SOR1 owes more in feel to Double Dragon, Renegade, etc. whereas SOR2 (along with its immediate sequel) has more in common with Final Fight but with a more rewarding combo and special attack system

The ways in which you can influence the first game's ending are really cool and unique from the sequels, though depending on what you're going for, can be somewhat difficult/tedious to actually play out.

It's similar in visual and musical style but plays completely differently. It's a bit primitive, a la the difference between Revenge of Shinobi and Shinobi III.
Eh, I'd say Revenge of Shinobi has certain advantages over the sequel (Yuzo Koshiro music for one). Streets of Rage 2 is more of a straight upgrade.

Having said that Streets of Rage 1's music is incredible too, so it may be worth getting for that alone.

Probably their home hardware too. At the time it came out the Mega Drive was a bit of a beast. The Mega CD flattened the PC Engine CD technically. Master System was a very powerful console for an 8 bit.

Personally I feel that Revenge of Shinobi is one of the weaker Koshiro soundtracks and I highly prefer Shinobi III's soundtrack over it. The Murasaki/Akiyama/Nagao team really knocks it out of the park with the beats they made come out of the Mega Drive.

I'll have to respectfully disagree on that one. What I will agree with you is Shinobi 3 does have an excellent soundtrack.

Even earlier than that, Zaxxon was miles ahead of anything anyone else was doing in 1982.
