I count myself as one of them on the switch. I bought the game for nostalgia, but I've only played it once. I suck at beat 'em ups, so I only got to the first boss before dying.

Are they single downloads from each owner, or they count the multiple downloads a user can make?

I can download the game dozens of times...

you can lower the difficulty and will probably find it more approachable
This generation of gamers frown upon the not hardcore gamer :(

iirc, it's called Bare Knuckle in Japan. don't know why they changed the name. maybe they found streets of rage more appealing.

That's marketing! Would you rather play rockman or MEGA MAN? :creep:
Of course Streets of Rage sounds better than Bare Knuckle. It convey more of what the game is about. Plus during 1990s, a lot of attitude was in that era. Most decades are thematically emotional focused. :P

So, maybe we can get a Streets of Rage 5, with a cameo from Yakuza? Or, maybe a Streets of Rage style beat em' up? You could have Kiryu, Saejima, Akiyama, Shinada, Tanimura, Daigo, Sayama, Majima and others as playable characters...the possibilities!

Well-deserved, easily one of the best games of the year. It fully delivers on all the core elements of SoR1-3, all while transcending the "nostalgia factor" and being a genuinely worthy successor to an already great trilogy; the amount of visible care and love put into it is kinda ridiculous.

I think it just gets the idea of series revival right - being less of an archaic throwback that checks points on the list of references, and more of a great modern-feeling, modern-playing, modern-looking games that captures the flow and spirit of its predecessors through modern means. Doom 2016 and RE2-3 did the same thing in a lot of ways, and I hope to see more reboots and continuations designed with that mindset.

SOR4 is literally one of the best beat em up games I've ever played, no lie. Sad that the Switch online servers are kinda dead after the first week of launch though.
