I traded the games at a trading barrow in Falkirk shopping mall. The games I got in return were Golden Axe and Streets of Rage. Upon returning home and jammed in SoR and my mind was blown, first by the funky soundtrack and second by action. Here was a beat-em-up worthy of the arcade that was finally available on home consoles. As a kid, I loved this game. I played it a zillion times during Spring 1993 with my friend Andrew. I used to play Axel or Blaze and he would be Adam and no matter how often we played it we never seemed to get bored. Then Streets of Rage 2 came out, and we quickly forgot that this one even existed.
You play as ex-cops Axel Stone, Adam Hunter or Blaze Fielding, who have quit the force in order to take on the bad guys in their own way. There are 8 levels to work through in a run-down and corrupt city led by the evil Mr X. Beating up all the bad guys and the end-of-level boss is much fun, and the screen progression gives the game panel-to-panel comic book vibe.Read more ›
Difficulty: I was an 80s kid, this is challenging if you don't keep your guard up to this day. Nearly impossible to beat single player. NEARLY.
Replay Value: 10/10
Greatest Hit? One of the best games I've ever played. Fond childhood memories playing two player with my brother.
The 2nd streets of Rage is more popular, but this is the title that paved the way for the push that became #2. For that reason, I love it moreso.
Tip: I have tons of tips, but if want the best chance to beat this game in single player - the strongest character is Adam. He's slow, but once you're good enough to know every type of badguy's attack patterns, you can make it to the final boss easiest with Adam's power at a cost of speed.
Despite that, I took a look at the leads and they seem like they're in playable condition, so no worries there. I am pleased with my purchase indeed.

'beat 'em ups' from Sega. While technology has improved graphics and even stories this remains a great example of what games should be.Published 15 months ago by jadesun33
