Streets of Rage

The Streets of Rage series recently came back for a new sequel, Streets of Rage 4, and as we beat down enemies on its cel-shaded streets, one thing became clear – Streets of Rage never should have gone away. You play as one of several vigilantes, set with taking down the crime syndicate that has taken over your fictonalised American city by beating seven shades of crap out of them. You can pick up items or team up with a friend in co-op, and the series' distinctive chunky graphics, awesome enemy designs, and extremely fun combat have always made it stand out from the crowd.
