Both are great, but Real Bout Fatal Fury Special is about five times better than its predecessor. Possibly the most fun, and gorgeous looking beat 'em up on the 'Geo in my opinion.
I'm probably in the minority that prefers Real Bout Special to Garou. I just prefer the cast of characters for Special, all my favourite FF characters in one game with nice large sprites, a great soundtrack and hidden Geese boss fight
The Real Bout sub-series is much different to Garou.... I genuinely don't know which I prefer in all honesty. What I do know is the Real Bout games are awfully underrated. The graphics in Special in particular are incredible Everyone is familer with the early Fatal Fury games, but hardly anyone really gives the Real Bout games the time of day. Superb fun, owing to the accessible combo system and lush graphics.
There are a number of ports of both Special and RB2 - if people haven't tried these out then I'd highly recommend them.

Same here - defo the most enjoyable Cave shooter I have ever played in all honesty. Just a superb title with loads of depth, buckets of fair challenge, and stunning visuals. One of my third favourite shooters of all time.
