    Less is Often More...

    All right, so this isn't Halo or anything. But, it is a form of Streets of Rage (which has been my favorite game for as long as I could remember) and I don't understand why it got so low of a score. It is difficult, an... Read Full Review

    When gameplay gets rusty...

    At the time, I was not paying a monthly fee for Xbox Live and this game just didn't have enough long-time appeal. I invited two different sets of friends over on different days and played two times through the co-op mode... Read Full Review

    Don't waste your money on it!

    Well, where should I start, there isn't much to say about this game without using foul language, and I ain't allowed to swear for these reviews. The biggest flaw of this game (among many others) is its "overly easy to d... Read Full Review

    I'm sure Gamespot's reviewer of the game didn't even play the game all the way through and see what's available afterwards. I will provide you my opinion of the game, and give you recommendations if this game is for you... Read Full Review

    Not great but not ALL that bad

    This game is for those who are true beat em up fans. I am one of those but it doesnt quite leave me with lasting impression. The single player mode is rather boring and is better off duking it out with a friend. The figh... Read Full Review

    Why was this game made?

    This is one of those games that makes you sit back and take stock of the gaming universe. With games like God of War, Splinter Cell: CT, and Tekken 5 coming out you have GOT to wonder what Sega was thinking when they cho... Read Full Review
