Review
When a game has the loading instructions on the bootup screen, one tends
to question the amount of thought put into it.

I'm not going to go into a lot of detail on this game other than to say
that it is, by far, the worst game EVER released for the CD≥≤ and is in
the running for worst game in videogaming history.

To say this game is a disappointment would be a tremendous understatement.
The advance screenshots looked wonderful.  Granted, the graphics aren't
bad at all...when they're not moving.  What the screenshots couldn't
convey, however, was the quality of the gameplay, which is horrible...
absolutely horrible.

This is supposed to be a beat-em-up game like Street Fighter 2 or Mortal
Kombat.  Take out the personality, gameplay and fun and you have Dangerous
Streets.

What makes this game so bad?  The control is horrible.  The graphics are
very poor in showing what is actually happening.  (They look quite
interesting when nothing is happening, but the animation is so bad you
cannot tell if you're hitting your opponent or not.)  This is a beat-em-up
where you can't get your fighter to move, and then can't tell if you've hit
anything when it does move.  Not the stuff a good game is made of.

Please, unless you like unpleasantness, avoid this game.  If you NEED a
beat-em-up for your CD≥≤, you can get International Karate +.  I realize
that I tore that game apart in another review but, compared to Dangerous
Streets, it's light years ahead of this game in the fun department.
