Streets of Rage 4 Review

Decades have passed since we last saw Streets of Rage. Despite a few blips here and there, the beat ’em up genre has long since fallen out of favour. It’s going to take more than just walking to the right and punching waves of enemies in the face to stand out in today’s gaming climate.
