Streets of Rage 4 is a small, concentrated hit of beat 'em up excellence. While its length and lack of extra modes might make this offering seem slim, it makes up for it with brilliant fighting, effusive style, and another solid set of tunes. If beat 'em up games are seeing a revival, Streets of Rage 4 is leading the charge.
Chris MoyseMay 03, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 is an absolute triumph. It looks stunning, it sounds sublime, and it plays like a dream. SoR 4 delivers fistfuls of knock-down, drag-out action for fans old and new, all at a modest price. It’s been a long wait for the Streets of Rage faithful, but comebacks rarely get much better than this.
Chris ShiveApr 29, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 doesn’t do much to advance the formula of classic beat ’em ups and that’s what makes it great. The game can be completed in roughly three hours, which is just enough for this type of game. Unlocking all the Easter eggs is a nice way to add to the nostalgia fix. Playing through with each character offers a slightly different game experience, but the real joy comes from playing these types of games with friends. Streets of Rage 4 is a must play for fans of retro beat ’em ups.
Eric HallidayMay 20, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 is an incredible love letter to an already beloved franchise. With a large variety of stages and an incredible amount of unlockables, this game will keep you entertained for weeks.
Chris "Atom" DeAngelusApr 29, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 is the perfect love letter to Sega's fan favorite beat-'em-up franchise. It captures the spirit and soul of the games while adding great new mechanics and tons of style. At its heart, it's a short, sweet, and well-made game about punching criminals until you can punch the biggest criminals of all. The price tag might be a bit steep if you're not someone who loves beating things up with friends, but for Streets of Rage fans, it is everything it should be.

I can’t believe just over 26 years Streets of Rage has returned as good as it has. With the unlockables I just want to keep getting better at the game; everything is done in such a way that I never felt like I wanted to stop playing. Satisfying doesn’t seem strong enough of a word. I am thoroughly impressed by everything this game has to offer and I hope we see more SEGA classics tackles by DotEmu and Lizardcube.

Streets of Rage 4 delivers the greatest hits of the classic series and is at its best when played with at least one friend. If the primary focus was delivering a traditional Streets of Rage experience with a modern coat of paint, it absolutely succeeds. But while it layers on a few new and interesting mechanics, it’s still a very conservative update to the quarter-century-old format that feels like a slave to the past.
Alex Santa MariaApr 28, 2020
If you're looking for brawlers to evolve, Streets of Rage 4 doesn't fit the bill. There are plenty of great games looking to move things forward and change things up, and that's rad. What Streets of Rage 4 provides is a perfect continuation of one of the founding fathers of the genre. It brings back a Genesis experience that never once feels outdated.
Nathan BirchApr 29, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but honestly, that’s okay. The game’s dazzling visuals, silky-smooth action, varied level design, and sexy sense of cool more than make up for a few minor old-school irritations. Veteran Bare Knuckle brawlers will get the most out of Streets of Rage 4, but it should provide a satisfying thumb workout for players from all eras.
Nathan RowlandMay 05, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 has taken a bold step into a new age of gaming and it’s landed well. As a sequel, it carries on the legacy well with a stylish lick of paint to please even the most scrupulous of fans. Its pleasing to know that titles, no matter how old, can be adapted with such care and attention to recreate all of those stirrings it invoked long ago, but for a different audience in a different time. And times most assuredly are different.
Francis DiPersioApr 29, 2020
Online woes aside, Streets of Rage 4 is the gold standard for what a beat ’em up should be and a triumphant return to form for the series. The road to its release has been long and at times uncertain, but Dotemu, Guard Crush Games, and Lizardcube have managed to deliver a game that was well worth the 26-year wait. With stellar visuals, an unforgettable soundtrack, and a wealth of modes to enjoy, this is one game you need to have in your collection.
Andrew ThorntonApr 29, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 left me feeling like a ten-year-old kid playing his Genesis again, while still managing to bring modern gameplay and variety to a classic series. There was no way for me to keep my expectations low with this series returning yet Lizardcube still managed to blow those expectations away. I can say without hesitation that this is the pinnacle of a long-dormant series and genre; a game I'm confident I'll be returning to for years to come.
Joe JubaApr 29, 2020
Having additional sets of fists to distract bosses and break up crowds can be a life-saver in the main campaign. But the additional modes, like competitive battles between players and boss rush, are more diversions than destinations. Streets of Rage 4’s simple approach to combat and content is enjoyable in short bursts, but it doesn’t have the hooks to keep you coming back. This beat ‘em up feels like an homage to the ‘90s, but it’s also stuck in that era.
TJ DenzerApr 29, 2020
Even though I thought I knew exactly what I was walking into, it still found ways to surprise and delight me constantly. Its challenge is unending and the ceiling for the best players will likely be raised for a good long time. If it’s the last beat’em-up game I play or watch others play for another five years, I can absolutely deal with that because I’ll still likely be having fun with it even then.
Jake SuApr 29, 2020
A stunning modern sequel to a classic series, Streets of Rage 4 delivers great combat, wonderful music, and guaranteed enjoyment every single time. Once you get stuck in, you will be coming back for seconds.
Phil NeymanApr 29, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 is one of the best entries in a classic series in quite some time. With beautifully updated graphics and a soundtrack that you will be humming along with for quite some time, you’ll be reminded of how you felt if you played these types of games when they were first made popular. Anyone unfamiliar with the series will still have a blast fighting their way through each level alone or with a friend.

The limitations of '90s-era design stand out more when you're playing Streets of Rage 4 solo. I had a blast in the more chaotic co-op playing with my roommate on the couch. I know there will be people who delight in exploring the invincibility frames of each attack and S rank every level on the hardest difficulty, but for me, these games are at their best when you're mashing buttons a lot and thinking a little.
Thomas WildeApr 28, 2020
I was pleasantly surprised by Streets of Rage 4 once I figured it out. It plays a bit of a trick on you if you’re a fan of this sort of game, where you fall into your old patterns almost immediately, but the game is built to smack you down if you do. Instead, it’s got a simple combat system with some real depth to it, and which only gets more fun as you add players in co-op.
Scott WileyMay 01, 2020
Arcade mode expects you to do the entire story in one sitting with one life just like the "good old days." The art style is magnificent and the satisfaction you get when you do start to feel out the combo system and the enemies weaknesses is second to none. While there have been many great beat em' ups in the past 2 decades. None have had that Streets of Rage feel that is unique to those Sega fans. I can safely say, this has it.
Adam KerrMay 14, 2020
A fantastic arcade throwback, Streets of Rage 4 remains faithful to the classic series, whilst adding its own fresh twist. The combat is excellent and the new combo system provides players new and old with a steep learning curve to master every stage the game has to offer. Despite missing a truly outstanding stage, the fluid combat and enemy variety more than makes up for it.
Arya W. WibowoMay 04, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 doesn't stray too far from its predecessor, but it is precisely that loyalty to its roots that make it worthy of being loved once again. It comes with the right mixture of old ingredients but it's covered in a more modern layer of icing and, of course, there's a cherry on top (pun intended). If you're a beat 'em up fan, we'd heartily recommend that you check this one out, and if you're a longtime Streets of Rage aficionado, stop wasting your time here and get downloading.
Luiz CoelhoApr 29, 2020
All-in-all, this is the most fun I’ve had with multiplayer these past few months, and I’d recommend this game to both newcomers and Streets of Rage fanatics alike. Not only is this a heartfelt throwback to the golden years of couch co-op, but it’s also an extremely well-balanced and impeccably crafted romp through a city in need of saving.
Francisco Alberto SerranoApr 29, 2020
Estamos ante un gran Beat’em Up moderno, que recoge, respeta y homenajea el legado de la trilogía que le da nombre y reconocimiento, así que eso ya es de por sí un triunfo que celebramos desde estas líneas y nos permite recomendar el juego tanto a los amantes de los originales como a los interesados en los juegos de acción.

Streets of Rage 4 es un videojuego simplemente brillante que alcanzó con creces cada uno de los objetivos que se fue planteando. El trabajo que Dotemu, Lizardcube y Guard Crush Games hicieron con este juego es mucho más que solo nostalgia o tributo a una de las grandes franquicias de Sega.
Toni PiedrabuenaApr 30, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 es todo lo que podías imaginar que sería Streets of Rage 4. Falla, contra todo pronóstico, en lo musical, pero es capaz de llevar a beber las mieles de la grandeza del beat’em up. Consigue conjugar de forma óptima las bases que hicieron grande a la franquicia en lo jugable con toques que modernizan su acción hasta convertirlo, sin duda, en el mejor Streets of Rage.

Oriol Vall-LloveraApr 29, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 se convierte, por derecho propio, en un SoR numerado más. Los amantes del género lo pasarán en grande con un título que ofrece todo lo que hizo grande los beat 'em up de los años 90. Y además, lo adereza con novedades ligeras pero muy funcionales. Es divertido, e incluso épico si jugamos acompañados. Y aunque peca de ser algo corto, ofrece mucha rejugabilidad.

Dem Trio aus Dotemu, Lizardcube und Guard Crash Games ist eine würdige Fortsetzung der Street of Rage-Reihe gelungen. Dabei setzten sie nicht nur auf die bewährten Prügeleinheiten der 90er Jahre und gelungenen Comic-Grafik aber setzen auch perfekt neue Techniken ein.
Kai SchmidtMay 04, 2020
Als Koop-Spaß für ein zwei Stündchen macht das nur aber wenig. Im Gegenteil: Endlich mal wieder ein Spiel, bei dem ich einfach nur ohne Erklärungen dem Freund oder der Freundin ein Gamepad in die Hand drücke und sofort loslegen kann! Streets of Rage 4 ist eine mit viel Liebe zum Details orchestrierte Reise in die Prügelspiel-Vergangenheit. Nicht mehr, aber eben auch nicht weniger.
Thomas PillonApr 29, 2020
Vingt-cinq ans après le dernier épisode, Streets of Rage revient pour multiplier les pains comme jamais. Le pari de cette association franco-canadienne était un peu fou, mais parvient pourtant à se hisser à la hauteur du défi. Oui : Streets of Rage 4 est le digne héritier d'une trilogie restée dans la légende, et parvient à apporter une profondeur qui manquait aux originaux tout en se montrant respectueux de son patrimoine.
Silent_JayApr 29, 2020
Streets of Rage 4 est le digne héritier d’une franchise qui en son temps a marqué petits et grands sur Sega Mega Drive (ou Sega Genesis). Dotemu, en collaboration avec Lizarcube et Guard Crush Games, dépoussière non seulement la franchise, mais également le Beat’em All.

A editora Dotemu e o estúdio Lizardcube convenceram a SEGA a desbloquear Streets of Rage, apresentando uma quarta iteração carregada de nostalgia, mas também de novidades que prometem fazer-vos sorrir e berrar como quando tinham no Mega Games II o melhor dos cartuchos.
Danilo DellafranaApr 29, 2020
Non mi divertivo così da parecchio: Streets of Rage 4 evolve le vette raggiunte dall’eccellente Bare Knuckle 3 (ben superiore alla controparte occidentale, come confermeranno gli intenditori) in un sistema di combattimento fluido e soddisfacente. Con quattro livelli di difficoltà la sfida è aperta a tutti, e le numerose modalità doneranno parecchie ore di gioco ai fanatici delle risse digitali.

Un tuffo nel passato, ovviamente, ma che non si crogiola nella semplice nostalgia, cercando di proporre il meglio di quel genere, non solo della saga di Streets of Rage. Un quarto di secolo dopo, fare i ganassa in giro per una città piena di delinquenti non è mai stato probabilmente così divertente.
Tommaso PuglieseApr 29, 2020
Fantastico il gameplay: gli impatti sono ottimi, i nemici numerosissimi e in cooperativa non si vorrebbe mai smettere di giocare. Considerando i contenuti e il prezzo estremamente contenuto (il titolo è anche disponibile su Xbox Game Pass!), è chiaro che ci troviamo di fronte a un piccolo, grande gioiello.

Streets of Rage 4 is dus een uitstekend vervolg op Streets of Rage 3, waar helaas meer dan 25 jaar tussen heeft gezeten. Hoewel Streets of Rage al die tijd stil heeft gestaan, heeft de wereld dat niet. Streets of Rage 4 doet niks om het uitgestorven, inherent arcade-genre van de beat-’em-up aan te passen voor je huiskamer.
فرنودMay 03, 2020
طرفداران قدیمی سری احتمالاً بارها و بارها بازی را به اتمام خواهند رساند و البته تجربه آن برای افرادی که با سری آشنا نیستند نیز لذت‌بخش خواهد بود. SoR 4 همان چیزی است که به خوبی به سری ۲۹ ساله خود وفادار است در عین حال عنوانی سرگرم کننده و با ارزش در سال ۲۰۲۰ محسوب می‌شود.

Tá sa ešte stupňuje v kooperácii a naozaj parádne audiovizuálne spracovanie je už len takou čerešničkou na torte. Toto je návrat, ktorý si vo veľkom užijú nielen pôvodní hráči, ale aj nováčikovia, prípadne rovno aj dve generácie, keď sa do ulíc vyberiete robiť poriadky so svojimi potomkami.
