Summary

Bleedin' awesome.

The Good

Streets of Rage is definitely the best beat-'em-up I've ever played on the Genesis, and one of the best beat-'em-ups ever. It is only bested, in my opinion, by Capcom's arcade game Cadillacs and Dinosaurs.

Since the game is simple, I may as well keep the review simple: terrific graphics, awesome music, great level design and lots of fighting moves. The scenery changes, the music changes, the enemies change, the only thing that more or less stays permanent in this game is the violence...

... and oh, what great violence indeed.

The Bad

Nothing really, it's quite complete.

The Bottom Line

A terrific beat-'em-up, definitely the best on the Genesis and worlds better than its sequel.
