Streets of Rage (Bare Knuckle in Japan) is a beat 'em up game developed and
published by Sega in 1991 for Mega Drive/Genesis.
It is the first installment of the Streets of Rage series which was followed by
Streets of Rage 2 and
Streets of Rage 3.
The streets are no longer safe for ordinary people any more. Mr Big and his violence-crazed minions have moved into the city, and their main occupations include scaring the people with their grotesque features, beating them up with a variety of weapons and generally causing a bit of aggro.
Axel, Adam and Blaze - ex-cops, the solution to punk pollution. The city's a war zone, and they're going out two at a time to give the gangs a kick in the guts. This is the ultimate in street combat. These city fighters are martial arts maniacs with a battery of 40 individually controllable attacks - including jabs, head butts, and overhead kicks. They're up against a mob of Kung-Fu creeps and axe-hurling fiends. On the streets it's only two of them against hordes of attacking scum. Slam into pipe-wielding weirdos and bash 'em with their own metal. Throw an uppercut or an elbow smash - these goons keep comin'!
