Art style looks disgusting, just awful. Streets of Rage 1 has arguably the best soundtrack tied with Ristar of the console, it's banging.

I'm sure this is fun, but ugh looks ugh.

In terms of art direction, this is closer to a remake of Final Fight than Streets of Rage (or Bare Knuckle as us cool kids with our Japanese imports called it).

Streets of Rage should be more pixelated, with a hint of Vaporwave.

Streets of Rage 4 is actually really good fun, lots of depth to the combat and while I prefer big chunky sprites in general for this kind of thing, it looks great to me. A real labour of the love and better even than I first thought. Maintaining your combo is a hell of a lot of fun.

This has been getting stellar reviews from people I trust (and madhair), saying it's the best in the series. I will get it but my best Streets of Rage memories are from when they put them on the Wii and my housemate and I stayed up throught the night completing them in co-op. Now I live with two under-threes, and a woman. Not going to happen

It's brilliant. Was sceptical when the first footage came out as it looked a bit dark and bland, but they've absolutely nailed it. I don't know if it's the best in the series, but it's definitely the deepest.

Had a real blast playing it with my son, trying to juggle fools about between us to maintain the combo count.
