Retro Game of the Week 040: Streets of Rage 3(GEN)

Here we are back again, another title of the week that deserves a mention. The tardiness of this post was supposed to be on Sunday but due to my trip to the flea market, I wasn't able to write something up. It's Tuesday and I'm finally 100 percent better! Well, here we have a very sought after title, Streets of Rage 3! This game is not my favorite but still good. It contains a lot of upgrades from the second one that will appeal to some and disgust others. it's your choice if you want to pick this game up and play, but if you chose yes, it'll cost ya quite a bit.

The game is part of the trend of beat em up games during the early 90s. This genre was very popular and both Sega and Nintendo wanted in on the money making beat em up master gaming goodness! In my personal opinion, the streets of rage games beat Final Fight by a long shot. By the time Final Fight 3 came out, it was just the same thing as the first one, except with different characters. Streets of Rage 3 introduced different characters as well as new aspects to make the game play different and better to some.



Overall, I say it's worth a pick up if you can find it for a reasonable price. The game usually goes for 30 dollars loose and at crazy prices boxed. I suggest you hit the thrift stores and keeps your eyes opened for this gem for the Genesis. If you are not into hunting, just pick up the Genesis Collection games for the new consoles which has all three Streets of Rage games. Pick it up, play all three of them, and pick your favorite, if you can that is. Until next week errr this Sunday.
