The 3rd and final installment (not counting Streets of Rage remake) of the Streets of Rage trilogy. This may be the version I played the most when growing up, not because it was the best, but because it was the longest, and most challenging (in my opinion). The Steam PC port is also of lesser quality than the previous two games with a number of glitches not found in the original Sega Megadrive version. Despite the poor port, the game is still very playable and enjoyable with smoother controls and faster paced beat 'em action. In general, the stage locations are less interesting than its predecessor, Streets of Rage 2, but the story does get more ridiculous to the point where you end up fighting an army of robots. Despite the iffy story line and obvious plot holes that come with it, Streets of Rage 3 still provides many challenging hours of fun with a co-op partner or on your own (co-op is definitely harder than single player).

Pros:
+ Smooth and improved controls enabling all characters to run, and roll in the z-plane
+ Faster paced combat
+ special moves with weapons
+ Weapons don't drop when you grab someone
+ Long stages, and challenging game play
+ Local co-op
+ Gamepad support (I used a PS3 controller)
+ Pixel art graphics
+ Multiple endings
+ Special moves more useful now that they have a cooldown so you can use without losing health
+ Throwing enemies no longer can hit your co-op partner
+ A feeling of nostalgia

Cons:
- Weapon have a life bar, so are limited use
- Less interesting stage locations (some get quite tedious like the train locations)
- The second part of the train stage, there really isn't much room for co-op fighting
- Unbalanced life bar, a 3-hit combo from a basic enemy (Donovan) can take away half your life
- Some enemies move ridiculously quickly (most likely a bug, as they were never that fast in the original)
- Story line has gone down hill since the first two games
- The timed sections can be irritating
- Enemies not affected by conveyor belts
- Have to watch out for some enemies falling on you while holding knives or with their legs out
- Enemies hide off screen all the time (even more annoying in the timed stage)
- Still too easy to grab your co-op partner by mistake

My Score: 7/10

One of the best oldschool true classic beat-em-ups. Great fun to play with a friend!

Streets of Rage 3 is exactly what you'd expect, it's a fun beat-em-up with a great sense of nostalgia behind it for me, a very great classic and a beloved fighting series
