Streets of Rage Remake is a homage to the famous Sega MegaDrive/Genesis saga, aiming to keep the same gameplay and spirit from the 2nd and 3rd installments with some touches from the 1st one. It includes new music, locations,enemies, moves, graphical effects, a parallel plot and a lot more features.
This game is simply amazing. It has that nostalgic "Golden Axe", "Double Dragon" feeling and you just can't help but seeing yourself back in an arcade hall putting in another coin for more credits to play on.
Eight different characters, 43 locations with multipath-splits and 52 different enemy types guarantee for many hours of fun playing this game. There are also lots different game options (one player, two players, Battle, one player and CPU against computer etc.) and some extras like unlockable secrets, an image gallery and other stuff.
All of this combined with great graphics, an amazing soundtrack and excellent gameplay will keep you entertained for hours. If you just want to try a single remake this year, it should be this one for sure. Two thumps up!
