    Wait for Streets 2, if you can!

    Firstly, let me say this: I love the Streets of Rage series. This is probably the best side-scrolling Beat 'em up on VC at the moment. HOWEVER, that said, the first Streets of Rage is not a fantastic game. I consider St... Read Full Review

    What a classic Genesis game. It reminds me of the old school days, and the 1980's. This is a very cool Beat-em up game.

    Gameplay: I absolutely love games like these. There's tons of action to perform for a game like this. There are multiple fighting combos to perform, many types of weapons to use, and many different stuff to do. There'... Read Full Review
