In Other News – 21 November 2016

2 min read


Good ol’ Streets of Rage! When consoles were revived for home audiences, one of the best genres around to kill an afternoon with was Streets of Rage. Basically an accurate simulator of a Joburg street on payday, Streets of Rage was fluid and brutal stuff. And utterly perfected in its third incarnation. More characters, more bizarre enemies (that some versions edited out completely) made for some thumb-blisteringly good fun.

The best part though? Play your cards right, and you could jam Streets of Rage 3/ Bare Knuckle III as either a super martial artist by the name of Shiva…or a kangaroo. STREWTH!
