Streets of Rage 4 is another entry in beat’em up series created by Sega. The franchise has gained a lot of popularity in the 90’s, but first attempts at developing the fourth installment have failed, with one side effect being the creation of Fighting Force. Players had to wait 24 years since the release of Streets of Rage 3 for an announcement of the full-scale entry in the series, a collaborative project of DotEmu, Lizardcube and Guard Crush Game.

Plot

The fourth entry in the Streets of Rage series marks the return of characters from the old games, including Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding. It features a completely new story, in which heroes must deal with more villains ruining the peace of the city.

Game mechanics

Developers of Streets of Rage 4 decided to go with the classic formula of walking fighting games. Players control a hero selected from a few available characters (each with different strong and weak points) and are sent to a selected stage. There they must defeat many varied enemies and finally the boss to go to another stage. There are also weapons like knives and pipes on levels, as well as healing items.

Game modes

Streets of Rage 4 can be played as a single-player game or in cooperation with another player.

Technical aspects

Just like previous titles, Streets of Rage 4 uses two-dimensional visuals in comics style. However, the quality of hand-drawn characters and backgrounds is much better than in old games. The game is complemented by electronic music similar to fans favorite tracks.
