Video Game Ad of the Day: Streets of Rage II

Streets of Rage II
Streets of Rage II is pretty much the best game on the Mega Drive. Great graphics, one of the best soundtracks of all time and arguably the best gameplay in a 2D beat ’em up.

Bare Knuckle, or Streets of Rage as it is known here in the West, is set for a 3D Classics release on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Japan.

3D Streets of Rage (3D Bare Knuckle) will include local co-op, 3D graphics and a newly added One Hit Deathblow Mode, were enemies are killed in a single hit.

The game comes out on August 21 and will cost players 600 yen. There is no word on a western release yet, but we suppose it is only as matter of time.

Streets of Rage 2
Streets of Rage 2 is one of the finest beat ’em ups of all time, combining impressive graphics, an amazing soundtrack and some bone crunching action into a single package. You’ll find few Sega fans who don’t list Streets of Rage 2 as one of the finest games the company has ever published.

Retro Gaming Theatre – Streets of Rage II (Mega Drive)


To close out our Mega Drive based Retro Gaming Theatre videos for 2012, I decided to drag out my favourite game on the system – Streets of Rage II.

The game has amazing graphics, fantastic action and the single best soundtrack of any game on the Mega Drive. Our video showcases the first full level of the game.

Take a look at Ruffian’s Streets of Rage prototype


Ruffian Games, developers of Crackdown 2 for the Xbox 360, made the above prototype video as a pitch for a potential downloadable Streets of Rage sequel.

The video is obviously very rough (“pre pre pre Alpha according to the studio), but shows a bit of promise. Perhaps one day Sega will get off the pot and do something new with Streets of Rage.

Retro Gaming Theatre – Streets of Rage (Mega Drive)


This week’s episode of Retro Gaming Theatre features one of my all-time favourite beat ’em ups – Streets of Rage.

Though thoroughly superceded in just about every way by Streets of Rage II, the original game still boasts an excellent soundtrack and can be quite challenging in spots.

We played through to about the end of the second level in this video, but definitely could have gone further.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Streets of Rage 3

The series’ weakest link.

Streets of Rage 3 is the third and final game (so far) in Sega’s smashing beat ’em up series. Despite packing the same stellar gameplay as the second game, it doesn’t really do anything that improves on it – in fact, some aspects of the game are much worse. It doesn’t help that most of the game’s story was destroyed during localisation, not to mention the other content cuts and censoring that occured.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Streets of Rage

Worth playing for the soundtrack alone.

Streets of Rage was one of Sega’s early success stories on the Mega Drive. Heavily influenced by arcade beat ’em ups like Double Dragon and Final Fight, Sega put its own spin by giving players more moves and access to a screen wiping Police backup attack. However, the reason why people consider the first game memorable (as the second game blew it out of the water) is the soundtrack – Yuzo Koshiro is a master of the Mega Drive’s sound chip. This ad is from the US release.
