To that end, Streets of Rage 3 is both brutal and thrilling. It lacks the cool music from Streets of Rage 2, and enemies still retreat off screen, only to retaliate with a cheap attack, but let's face it. The game is from 1994. You shouldn't expect outstanding artificial intelligence. You can, however, expect sweet looking 16-bit graphics that still look good magnified on the iPad, and traditional beat-em-up play that helped make the 90s that much cooler, at least when it came to video games. Streets of Rage 3 lacks depth, but it's still a fun time, especially if you grew up with the series. It's a bit on the pricey side ($2.99 for such an old game makes little sense), but that's still a relatively small sum to pay for walloping bad guys as a kangaroo.
