So me and the girlfriend last night played and Finished the newest addition to the Streets of Rage series.. Streets of Rage 4! for the Switch… and here…we..go..

My background with this series is very limited as I never owned a Sega system till recently while getting into Emulations on the pi… So beat em ups are really just a dabbling genre that me and the girlfriend will pick up every now and again to enjoy.

While a background with this series I am sure would have been cool from what we gathered of the story and the characters it became clear it’s not Necessary. I does a good job of explaining what is going on and the why.

Picking up the game is super easy and you don’t need Two Controllers to play it. We used the Two Joy Cons and no issue playing the game. It plays pretty basic. Jump, Attack, Special Move and Pick up items. A combination of pressing two buttons at once allows you to do a super move. Again pretty simple and very Classic Arcade system for a beat em up.

You move up and down the screen beating up enemies of several types. Progress from stage to stage each with it’s own types of bosses and Enemies. In between each stage a small comic book clip like move explaining the story.

The game is beautiful by design, with really cool Synth Music to keep you pupped and going. It’s fun and easy enough to learn that anyone can just pick it up and play.

The best part!! Cause of a sale in the Nintendo Store it only cost 9.99! However I would have probably payed more cause it is a fun coop game. It does comes with other modes and you can reply it with lots to do in variation. Honestly.. IT’S A FUN GAME.. and I hope for more!
