Streets of Rage 3

original title: Bare Knuckle III

Comparison:

Censored version
Region: Worldwide

Uncensored version
Region: Japan

Release: May 20, 2013 - Author: gecko666 - Translator: Matar
Streets of Rage 3 (OV: Bare Knuckle) was released in 1994 and was the last part of the series fort he Mega Drive. Like the predecedant a character was exchanged. New to the game is Dr. Zan Gilbert, a cyborg-human like character. Sammy has been renamed to Skate in the US version.
The graphics have increased, the gameplay remained the same and did not convince anymore. Annoying is the background music which goes more and more on the player's nerves after a while.
Compared is the uncensored JP version and the US version. Both games were played on difficulty ‘normal’ whereas the US version is harder because of stronger enemies.
Defeating enemies

When an enemies is defeated the JP version shows his blinking body before it disappears. The US version shows the body without blinking.
