Destructoid – What classic IP should Sega resurrect?: “Perhaps the most popular and well-known Sega game not yet remade, Streets of Rage was a must-have for any Genesis owner worth his cartridges. The first two games especially kicked vast amounts of arse, taking the classic sidescrolling beat ’em up formula but adding a police car that would drop a nuke on criminals at the touch of a button. A tactical nuke, just to deal with a few gangbangers and drug dealers. That is how you fight crime. Stupid Miranda rights.
I can never understand the Sega fanboy’s love of Streets of Rage. A washed out sub-Double Dragon borefest. I’d take Final Fight any day.
