Streets of Rage 2 is one of those titles that fans simply will not allow to die.  That is great because the game is quite good.  While the original is good, fans have taken the character selection a few steps beyond what Sega ever thought of.  Buckle up sunshine, this is going to be a […]

Streets of Rage 2 Continues the Beat Down – Today in History – December 20th, 1992
