Streets of Rage

Rating: B-

This Final Fight wannabe is of the lowest quality, graphically and otherwise, out of the three Streets of Rage games that were made for the Genesis, though it's still pretty fun to play. Choose your character: white guy, black guy, or a woman, depending upon whom you can best identify with. The object is the same as it is for any such game in this genre: beat the crap out of the same three or four enemies that come at you without end, pick up steel pipes to bash opponents, and eat food out of garbage cans to regain your strength. Finally, meet a tough boss at the end of each stage. Rinse and repeat.

Overall, an enjoyable yet rather repetitive game.
