Reviewed by Jeremy Peeples Streets of Rage was released for the Sega Genesis in late 1991. Many people wondered if this game could achieve the same success as Final Fight. Thankfully it did, and a new classic series began. Graphics-7/10- The characters are of average heeght, and contain sub-par, but are animated excellently. One excellent point in the graphics is this, the backgrounds are diverse and are very well designed and animated, for example, the flyers blow in the wind in the rundown city area and the moving waves on the beach area, it's small graphicl touches like that that make good graphics, great. Overall, they are good, and excellent for their time. Sound-10/10- If any series showed what the Genesis could do sound-wise, other than the Sonic games, this was it, this series would known for its excellent music, and this game started the tradition. The music is excellent, very clear and fits each level perfectly. The sound effects are great, each is crystal clear. Story-3/10- It's basically the same story that was used in Final Fight, minus the kidnapping , an evil psycho comes to a town and terrorizes it, the good guys try to stop him. Gameplay-6/10- The game has 3 characters to choose from, each with their own unique characteristics. It doesn't really matter who you choose, it's just a matter of personal preference. Control-8/10- The control is great, It's not as good as the later games in the series, but It's still good, most moves can be pulled off without a second thought, but the grapples are a pain to execute. Replay Value-5/10- This game has a very limited replay value, the only thing to do is beat the game with all the characters or try to improve your score. Presentation-7/10- Basic, but the presentation of this game follows the beauty of simplicity, nothing fancy, just enough to get the job done. Overall-8/10- It's the on of the best side-scrolling beat-em-ups out there, it started the seires and set the standard of excellence by which all others were judged. Rent or Buy?-Buy- The game is excellent and should be cheap, and easy to find, It's an excellent game and a must-buy for fans of the genre. For Nomad Owners- This game is perfect for the Nomad, the blurring is minor, the sound is crystal clear, and the control is still perfect. Overall, a great game for Nomad owners and Genesis owners in general.
