Streets of Rage Remake (also known as Bare Knuckle Remake) is a mind-blowing SOR fangame, released by Bombergames in 2011 on the Microsoft Windows platform. It is designed as a remake of the original Sega Genesis trilogy, though in some ways it can be seen as a true sequel to SOR3.
It is considered by the Streets of Rage fan community as a whole to be the definitive SOR fangame, with some going as far as calling it the Streets of Rage 4 that Sega never made. Truly, it has to be played to be believed it is that good. Streets of Rage Remake v5 (the final version of the game) has been produced to such a high standard I would expect no less from Sega themselves. Kudos to the development team for that exceptional achievement!
The game is programmed from scratch in Fenix programming language. It does not use reverse engineering or even a single line of code from the original SOR games. It is all based on visual interpretation, and also sports a whole host of special features and upgrades which bring the SOR gameplay experience into the 21st century, without compromising the classic 'feel' of the originals. The game has 18 playable characters, including a fully recreated Adam in SOR2/3 style, new characters 'Rudra' and 'Elle' (Electra) and a host of completely revised and recreated music remixes. Mr. X and the Syndicate are back, now more powerful than ever.
