Just completed Final Fight Streetwise --as I declared!
The gameplay was pretty awesome. Had some funny things, some awesome things, and things that FREAKED me out! The storyline was an unwelcome change, however. You're never going to beat this game, but SPOILERS AHEAD!!
You play as Cody's brother, Kyle. The game started off fine, freaking awesome going around beating people up. Nifty new weapons, classic bonus games with a delicious twist of 3D. Once you get so far into this game though, it just gets weird. If you know Metro City, it's not unusual to hear there are drug dealings going around. But this particular drug, they call GLOW, makes you all nuclear looking, and feel no pain. Cody missed his old fighting days, and gets mixed up in this GLOW. :P You go through the game meeting these important characters and you're all like "That one is behind all of this" until they get killed. =| You get 20 minutes away from the end of the game and find out it's a guy that you know nothing about! The priest, no less. But once you enter the final battle, you learn that this priest is the brother of BELGER, the villain from the first game that Cody killed. So it's a story of revenge. Belger makes Kyle fight Cody, but they end up killing Belger, if you can manage to win the FINAL FIGHT.
Along the way you meet some familiar faces. Haggar, who doesn't do SHIT but teach you a few moves. Guy, who is a VERY helpful character in the game. And you can even fight Cammy from Street Fighter in a cage fight. Easter egg. o: I liked the part in Japantown when Guy was like "I'm glad Japantown hasn't become as corrupted as the rest of the city" or something like that, and you go out to find asian chicks that all look the same with katanas slicing people up. Is that how asian chicks are in real life? Every time I see an asian schoolgirl now, I'm going to think badly of them! Compared to thugs that actually look like thugs, I'd say a part of town where hot asian schoolgirls are running around with katanas is a pretty corrupt part.
