Bare Knuckle II
Street savvy sequel that is tougher and grittier than the first helping of Streets of Rage along with an improved look. Special moves have had an overhaul too with the four characters enjoying some bad dude busting throws and knees to complement the feel of the in game settings. A lot of pleasure is to be had from destroying the in game environment but the Sega devotee might have a problem thrashing the Bare Knuckle arcade machine. Plus its great to see the differing reactions to your players on screen presence. Environments are well mixed adding to the diversity, if perhaps not quite geographically accurate. Plus the soundtrack inspires the roughing up of the perps that surface to challenge your pugilistic prowess.
