Uh, no, it isn't. Street of Rage/Bare Knuckle 3 is the best, in spite of the ludicrous popularity of the second game in the series. Comix Zone is still one of my favorite games on the system, though, I fucking love the art style, the story and the soundtrack and the controls are pretty good. Losing health when you attack makes it an interesting mechanic, it's kind of like adding a time limit that you don't see but definitely feel. Every punch and kick you hit anything with counts and if you fuck up, you're as good as dead.
