2002 in music was the year of Mike Skinner (AKA The Streets), with his debut album being hailed 'revolutionary' by many critics, and his tales of an ordinary London Geezer have rocked clubs all around the country. But 2003 hasnt started to well for Mike, and nis celebrity status has halted his writing of a new album - how could he MC about being an ordinar person with millions in his bank account and people wanting his autograph everywhere he goes? And so Mike has had to flee to America to try and get back to his old average ways.

He take very little money and rents a bedsit in the Middle of New York and has to work to survive. After a few weeks he begins to write down more and more lyrics, and most were better than his old ones.

Finally, Mike has finished his album's lyrics, and all he has to do is travel home and record it. The night before he is due to travel home, however, his top class apartment (Mike got his credit card sent from home) gets raided and all his lyrics are stolen! Rather than start the whole proces over again, he decides to try and follow up a note he found on his floor stating 'Blazin' squad waz 'ere'. Whilst it is obviously in code, Mr. Streets spends some valuable time trying to figure out what the phrase means. Once Mike has decoded it, he finds out that the So Solid Crew are the culprits, and they need to be sorted out.

You take control as Mike takes on the whole of New York in the search of his stolen lyrics. Arm only with his 'Runner up' prize from the Mercury music awards (which he uses for his special) and an array of musical styles, The Streets of Rage sees you go to the streets to win back your music.

You fight in the old school, Megadrive way, like Goldenaxe, Two Crude Dudes and Shinobi, side scrolling and button bashing until your hearts content. The range of enemies varies from the little gangs that you see in town on Saturday who only listen to the music because their mates tell them to, up to the So Solid Crew themselves, who each star as the end of level boss (1 member per level, meaning that there are over 100 levels to play, thus meaning great longetivity)

This game could be the start of a revolution - In the early 90's side-scrolling beat-'em ups were all the rage, and the amount of them produced in such a small time was a testamony to that. Unfortunately, not many made it into the 32 - bit and beyond, and so the genre died off quickly. Maybe this game could bring back the genre to it's former glory with it's ingenious gameplay - having to button bash AND scream at the screen simultaneously - along with a range of specials to choose from - like rapping, Slam Poetry-ing and MC-ing.

The Side scrolling genre is back - Get ready for some Rapping action.

But there are tons of Sega games that are actually crying out to be remade for another console: NiGHTS, Fighting Vipers, SpikeOut; Streets of Rage; Outrun; Sonic (proper 2D style, but with some nice 3D effects blended in); Afterburner; Space Harrier and so many others. Fortunately some of these are coming out, but sadly others aren't.

"Hold it down boy, your heads gettin' burnt. i know you can't stop, thinking of her. By all means you can vibe with this girl but just don't mug yourslef, just don't mug yourself".

Oh, sorry. Hey, nice idea based around the name, no? Plus, the in-game music could be some of their tunes. Streets of rage was one of the best games i have ever played, and i do hope that there is a remake on the next-generation consoles.
