With special hand-to-hand combat abilities, Adam Hunter, Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding step onto the Streets of Rage to risk it all to save their city, even if it means putting their lives on the line.

    Here's a street fighting game that'll knock your socks off. New, Streets of Rage from Sega Genesis. You get a total of 40 individually controllable attack moves. Upper cuts. Head butts. Flying double knee attacks. Neck grabs. Jumping pile drivers.

    You'll need every of them, too, to clean up these streets. This neighborhood's crawling with punks, muggers and urban riff-raff. You and a buddy, fighting side by side, take on up to eight of these toughs at once.

    Go at 'em with everything you've got. Pipes. Bottles. Knives. Dish out justice however you see fit. Remember, you're the good guys. But watch your back. These goons are even more ruthless than you are. Gangs of 'em come at you from everywhere... and keep on coming.

    So if you want to clean up the streets, don't just sit there. Do something. Get Streets of Rage from Sega Genesis.
