Streets of Rage II is one of the best side scrolling beat em ups to come out of the nighties! Up there with Double Dragon and Golden Axe, SOR had punk attitude and addictive game play. It was critically acclaimed upon release and has since been listed among the best games of all time.

Streets of Rage 2 also introduced two new characters to the franchise: Max Thunder and Eddie “Skate” Hunter. It dropped the major character “Adam” from the original.

Plot: Picking up where SOR1 left off (a year after the streets being crime free and Mr. X and his troops defeated), trouble is stirring once more. Adam Hunter, Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding meet at their favorite nightspot in the city and spent their time reminiscing about their vigilante crusade against ‘Mr. X’ and his organization. Axel and Blaze had moved out of the city after the adventure from last year. Axel has begun working as a part-time bodyguard and Blaze teaches dance classes. Adam has since rejoined the police force and lives in a small house with his younger brother.

The next morning, Axel received a phone call from Eddie ‘Skate’ Hunter, Adam’s younger brother. Skate had arrived at home from school and was shocked to find his house in ruin and his older brother missing. Attached to the front door was a picture of Adam chained to a wall at the feet of Mr. X. The criminals began to retake the streets once more. Beatings and lootings took place regularly and in broad daylight. Chaos reigned in the city, far worse than before.

The troop set forth on a rescue mission, which will take them from the city all the way to Mr. X’s hideout on a desolate island, where they will eventually face Mr. X and his bodyguard Shiva.

Highlights: The killer soundtrack by Yuzo Koshiro whose work was inspired by early ’90s club music
