No Speed Limit? No Rules? No Problem! Blow 14 opponents off the backroads of California in the most illegal, unofficial and dangerous race there is. Kick and punch your opponents outta the way at 150 mph. Snatch a club - if you wanna do some real damage. Avoid cows, road blocks, oil spills and oncoming traffic! Finish the race to take home cash or look for a police escort to your favorite jail. The roads get tougher and your opponents get meaner with each new level - so get used to the abuse. Eight bikes are up for grabs - if you have the cash!
In Streets of Rage three young vigilante police officers, Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding, and Adam Hunter, destroyed the evil Syndicate leader, Mr. X, and saved the city from turning into a ruined warzone.
The gameplay combines pseudo-3d driving in the graphical style of Outrun with side-scrolling action as the player controls a police officer driving to and then moved through various seedy locations in a one-man war against crime.
