the famous Sega Mega Drive/Genesis saga, aiming to keep the same
gameplay and spirit from the 2nd and 3rd instalments with some
touches from the 1st one. It includes new music, locations, enemies,
moves, graphical effects, a parallel plot and a lot more features. Mr. X and
the Syndicate are back, more powerful than ever! It's time to once
again walk the Streets of Rage!
Streets of Rage Remake has been produced to such a high quality that

There are two versions of Streets of Rage Remake. The first version, v4,
was released in 2006 exclusively for the Windows platform. Essentially,
it is still only a Beta version of the final game, since it lacks many
of the great features seen in the final release and is a lot less
polished. However, it was the first official release of the game in a
fully functional state.
* 8 playable characters
* 43 locations having multi-path splits
* 52 enemy types keeping all of their moves
* 37 different remixes
* Options and modes not present in the original Mega Drive saga
If you downloaded the Vista/7 patch, you mustn't set the compatibility
to XP or it won't work. Also, you may find a required DLL driver file is
missing. Simply go here to download it.
Throw it in your Windows/system folder, and you should be fine. Windows
7 seems to be missing that file for some reason.
System Requirements: 800MHz, 128MB RAM OS: Windows 98 or above
One year had passed since
the events of 'Streets of Rage 3'. The city had returned to
normality, and the team had gone back
to living normal lives. However, a wave of dangerous gun smugglers
soon begins operating within the city, plaguing it once
again with crime and violence like never before.
Dr. Zan, former researcher for RoboCy turned private investigator,
discovers information that "The New Syndicate" is operating from
somewhere in the city, and is responsible for the latest crimewave.
Realising the gravity of the situation, Zan sends a letter to his
old friend Blaze Fielding at her detective agency.
"Blaze, I have been investigating. Your suspicions were right.
Something is going wrong in the city, but who is in control?
All the trails lead to Barbon's Bar. This facade seems to
dissimulate illegal arms dealing, arms that could have been used
to commit the latest crimes. The site is well watched over and
located in the center of the city. I am waiting for your reply. Your
Blaze responds by
gathering her team - Axel, Adam, Max, and Skate, and together they
join Zan to stop The New Syndicate and bring back peace and
tranquillity to the city!
