Streets of Rage
One of the best brawler franchises in history is back with Streets of Rage 4, bringing with it a healthy dose of nostalgia. Everything fans loved about the original games has returned, from the music to the rough-and-tumble gameplay. There is even a way to unlock retro levels from past titles. As players battle through the streets, they'll come across many returning characters, including bosses. One of these bosses is Barbon, who still knows how to brawl. He's picked up a few new tricks since the old days, so here's how to navigate his moves and take him down.
Barbon isn't the only returning character. Players will encounter a lot of familiar faces throughout the game, including past playable characters. While there are only five playable characters to choose from at first, players can eventually unlock 12 classic characters from past Streets of Rage titles. Once unlocked, players can take everyone from Skate to Shiva to the streets, all of them sporting their original retro looks.
STREETS OF RAGE 4 is an action beat 'em up that takes place ten years after the events of Streets of Rage 3. Thanks to Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding, and Adam Hunter, the criminal syndicate of Mr. X organization in Wood Oak City was dismantled. Unfortunately, his children, the Y Twins, have spent the past rebuilding and strengthening a new gang with larger and deadlier schemes. Fortunately, Axel and Blaze recognize the dangers posed, and take to the streets along with two new allies: Cherry Hunter, Adam's daughter, and Floyd Iraia, a muscular construction worker with cybernetic arms. These new heroes will fight their way through twelve stages packed with enemies that want to sow chaos and destruction, using their fists and feet to take out enemies. Along with the story mode and five separate difficulty levels, there's a harder Arcade mode that gives players only three lives to complete the entire game without any saves. There's also a Boss Rush mode to fight the bosses of each stage one after the other, and a Battle mode to pit the playable heroes against each other to see which character is best. Two players can play on the same machine, or up to four players can fight enemies online. Players can also take on the newly released Mr. X Nightmare DLC, which adds three new characters, as well as a survival mode that provides a random set of missions and scenarios on a daily and weekly basis to fight through. Successfully clearing stages will unlock additional moves and bonuses that can be used in the main game as well. Think you have what it takes to clean up the Streets of Rage?

The synths kick in as the neon lights reflect off the city streets, slowly the drums add to the atmosphere. From off screen strolls a a gruff man with long blond hair and an ere of anger in his stride. Soon the screen is filled with a gang intent on being served justice...with your fists. It's a familiar scene for gamers who grew up in the 90s - an almost identical aesthetic to the SEGA Streets of Rage titles - but this time - it's on modern systems with slick hand drawn visuals, high definition graphics, and similar addictive music. This game is no mere remake though, Streets of Rage 4 is a brand new entry in the series that feels both fresh and pays homage to the originals.
In the two decades that followed, the Streets of Rage franchise sadly fell off the map. Outside a fan-made effort that served as an homage to the 16-bit games, the franchise officially disappeared as gaming tastes changed and shooters supplanted beat-em-ups and other old-school genres as the new hot thing. Then in 2018, the long-dormant franchise showed signs of life. A trailer was revealed showing Axel and Blaze tearing up the streets once more while sporting a new look and a different art style. Streets of Rage was coming back. 041b061a72
