                   1. Introduction
    ==========================================================
    
    
    Welcome to this guide. The aim of this guide is to have basic information of
    the enemies you are facing and let you know more of the details about them such
    as their characteristics, ability and identification. I also wrote the whole
    walkthrough to try to make it a complete guide. If you can try to suggest that
    this guide look better, feel free to add some comments.
    
    I wrote this guide for some reasons. To have more understanding about your
    enemies as well as make it a clear walkthrough about this game. Thereís a
    saying which says ďKeep your friends close, keep your enemies closerĒ. That
    inspired me to add the enemy guide section has well as to keep this game
    knowledge fresh in my mind as well as try to keep this game from bringforgotton
    Finally, it is also to refresh my skills for writing FAQs.
    
    Take note that this guide is only for SOR3 game walkthrough unoffical guide and
    I'm not invlove with the company SEGA whatsoever and DO NOT email me about
    things associated with the company. The aim of the guide is very clear as the
    guide speaks for itself of what it's purpose is.
    
    Now to have a brief introduction of this game. This game is the third sequel of
    the Street of Rage series. The sequel starts with the rookie cops Adam, Blaze,
    Axel defeating this syndicate after the sudden take over of the city by this
    organization. Then, the second sequel starts with Adam being kidnapped by this
    organization and with the help by Axel, Blaze, Sammy, Max, this organization is
    defeated again as well as the boss, Mr. X. Then the third sequel starts
    with the General being kidnapped and the letter to Axel from Blaze needing his
    help.Then, Axel, Sammy, Blaze and Zan join forces to bring this organization
    down again and the story plot unfolds from here.
    
    This gameís story plot evolves the letter sent by Blaze who needs Axelís help
    to save the general who is kidnapped by this syndicate. From now, Axel, Blaze
    together with Zen and Sammy has a mission of once again beat this syndicate
    down to size and save the streets of the city and battle this gang right down
    the ďStreets of RageĒ.
    
      Hereís the letter which was wrote to Axel with a picture of the General:
    
      Axel,
    
    I have learned from a new friend, Dr. Zan, which the syndicate is back with a
    clever new plan to take control of the city by replacing top-ranking officials
    with identical robots under the control of Mr. X.
    Our old boss, the chief of police, has disappeared and everybody in the city is
    preoccupied with the recent spate of bomb explosions.
    I fear that the syndicate's evil plan is already underway. Adam is too busy to
    help, but his brother Skate is joining Dr. Zan and me to try and get behind the
    bombing campaign and expose the real danger in the city.
    We need your help, Axel. Please come.
    
                                Your Partner, 	
                                Blaze

    Boss:
    
    Robo X:
    
    This boss has good reach like Zen and the electric shock like Zen. So donít go
    near him or grab it. Instead, go for flying kicks. If he attacks you, use the
    special attack to prevent him from more offensive attacks. When he shoots
    bullets, just roll away.
    
    When he shoots a missile, you can either beat him down to make the missile
    explode itself or hit the missile. If you hit the missile, he will blow out
    some smoke and take this chance to mount an offense. Beat him down and do the

    Boss:
    
    The rocket man aka Jet

    level, itís the best chance to attack him with some combos. Some fellow rocket
    man will accompany him. Take note of them because they also have some damaging
    moves. He has a rolling attack, which he moves high up and rolls down and gives
    a small range flame.
    
    Thatís when heís on ground and lands some combos on him or grabs him and slams
    him again. This is the better alternative because he will take some time to get
    up, and most importantly, heís still on the ground prone to your attacks. His
    second attacks is grabbing the player and give a huge slam. When he moves down
    when you are near him, he will grab and slam you so keep a distance between you
    and him.
    
    He also can suddenly drop down with kick at far range so be careful. If you get
    surrounded, just use a special attack. He also has attacks when in range; he
    will fly like superman to hit you. To counter this, use a special attack or
    roll away or flying kick him (must be accurate). When you beat him, there will
    be a slow motion when he falls, then take this chance to beat some rocket man
    to gain points. (HehehÖ.)

    Sub boss:

    A doctor controls the robot claw. The claw is easy to dodge but remember that
    the elevator is pushing you up so control the momentum,if not,you will get hit
    by the laser. Then hit the claw thatdive down to hit you. When you damage
    enough, the claw will break and this partis tricky. The claw will not only dive
    at you and follows you for a while so
    donít move to the corner and get trap. Continue hitting the claw when it stops
    and you will destroy it in no time.
    
    His machine attack:
    
    - Does a diving claw at you
    - When part of it is destroyed, it has electric attack
    - Top screen is full of electric bolts
    - When part of it is destroyed, it moves further to distance rather than just
    dive at you
    
    Boss: Ned X
    
    This robot is easy. Donít let if get offensive. It can shoots two missiles and
    barge at you so be careful. When itís knock down, it gets up and flies towards
    you and grabs you to choke or slam you. Best bet is to flying kick. Then keep
    it up until itís out of your screen. When itís moving around fast, wait for him
    to come and do a special attack on him and he will fall and do the flying kick
    again.
    
    Timing must be right or it will counter attack you. You can either beat him
    before or after the time runs out which will constitute to different endings.
    If you beat the robot within the time limit, you will see the real ending,
    which is ending 1. If you donít, you will see ending 2. Sit back and enjoy the
    ending and feel good and proud because you just completed the game.:)

    him. Heís better than before. Donít grab him. He will do a special flame at the
    leg attacks. When he falls, move away from him. He gets up rather quick and
    does a fast flying kick before you can react. Should he get offensive, just use
    special attack. There are lots of goodies under the cameras so can all you can.
    Flying kick wonít work because he will get up and move away fast or do a quick
    flying kick.
    Just wait for him do an attack like final web and counterattack whenever you
    can and you will beat him in no time and see ending 3.

    - Normal punching attack
    - Flying barge attack without any team mate
    - Dragon wing
    - Dash towards you with a grand upper
    - Color darken and become more aggressive
    
    
    Donít jump towards him or he will do a special attack. Also, never grab him.

    prevent him form hitting you. As his health wears down, he will become more
    orange and becomes more aggressive so beware. Beat him and see another cut
    scene.
    
    Stage 4:
    
    Area 1:
    
    There will be some Zacks and Carlos and bald guys and guys with headbands
    coming towards. Clear them and donít move on because you will expose the apple
    and one of the enemies will eat it. Be careful that there are moving trains
    here. It can be easily known with the vibration of the tracks gives it away.
    Roll away from the fight if the train is coming towards you. As you move on,
    there would be more Ices and Carlos and bald guys for you to clear. Then you
    will face some Electras and female thugs so be careful. Clear them and thereís
    a chicken here before you move on.
    
    Area 2:
    
    Some ninjas and a Carlos will appear. Thereís an apple here and before the
    train comes just move inland and you will do fine. After the train leaves, then
    come out and attacks again. Donít move on and wait for enemies to come. This
    way will be easier. Thereís a trick here. When you are inland, come out a
    little to expose a bit of yourself, if done right, enemies will attack you and
    you canít get hurt. The trains will come and will not hurt you. Instead, it
    will hurt the ninjas who were distracted by you. Clear them to reach the final
    part of the area where the chicken is available. Clear the ninjas to complete
    the area.
    
    Area 3:

    this attack
    ∑	Teleport attack. He will teleport in front of you and slash attack you
    ∑	Jump and throw some shurikins
    ∑	Jump around and move around and throw shurikins
    
     Best tip is to grab him and keep slamming him
    
    The second part:
    
    ∑	Morphs himself into two and slash you, to avoid just do a special attack
    ∑	Attacks like the first part
    Best tip as when he jumps around or moves around, quickly grab him and do some
    slamming, but when he sees you, he backs off and perform a slash attack at you.
    
    The third part:
    
    ∑	He runs with quick speed when he sees you and nails you
    ∑	Becomes invisible and start to throw shurikins
    ∑	Otherwise, attacks like the other two parts
    
    Best tip: When he becomes invisible, just dash at the direction where heís
    moving and you will do find. When he starts to super dash, just roll away. Then
    use the strategy of grabbing and slamming to beat this final part. He will
    explode as well the chicken when left untouched. The door will open and see a
    cut scene. Note that if you beat the stage 4 boss and above with perfect
    health, you will be awarded with higher points.
    
    Stage 5:
    
    Area 1:
    
    Enter this room that fills with ninjas with weapons like dagger and sword. Be
    careful of the ninjas because they might do a spinning dagger attack. After

    room1 or go below the room, around the edge, do a jump kick, the ground will
    break to enter another secret room2 or at the top layer of the screen, do a
    jump kick at the cardboard door to gain access to another room3.
    
    Or you can break the door to gain access to another room. In the second room,
    there are some skill fighters here. Thereís a 1up here as well as a gold bar
    and a moneybag in the boxes. Clear this room to gain access to another room. In
    the third room, you find yourself surrounded by many skill fighters here and
    some will drop down as you defeat on by one. Clear this room to go to area 2.
    
    Secret room1: There are lots of goodies here; like 1 up, gold bars. With few
    enemies here like the skill fighters, this is the easiest room by far. Clear

    you are and clear them. Moving forward will invite more enemies to come. Clear
    them and some Ices and some Carlos and some skilled fighters. Thereís a chicken
    in one of the statues in case you get hurt. After beating this area, your
    character will proceed to the next area.
    
    Area 3:
    
    When you reach the elevator, donít break the statues unless you are hurt badly
    because thereís a chicken in one of the boxes. There will some Zacks and the
    guy with headband and a skill fighter will appear. Attack them below because
    you woní want to break the boxes. Instead, lure them to the corner, corner them
    and attack or slam them to beat all of them down. Clear them and move on to the
    second floor. Carlos with knifes will drop down with the bald guys.
    
    Clear them to protect your chicken. Then you will reach the third floor. Female

    - Shoots ammo towards you
    
    This boss has good reach like Zen and the electric shock like Zen. So donít go
    near him or grab it. Instead, go for flying kicks. If he attacks you, use the
    special attack to prevent him from more offensive attacks. When he shoots
    bullets, just roll away.
    
    When he shoots a missile, you can either beat him down to make the missile
    explode itself or hit the missile. If you hit the missile, he will blow out
    some smoke and take this chance to mount an offense. Beat him down and do the
    flying kick. If you are hurt, eat the chicken you saved earlier. This boss will
    be beaten in no time.
    
    Stage 6:
    
    Thereís a wooden stick here in the box. Here have some robots for you to clear.
    Be careful though, some of them will self-destruct themselves. Proceed and hit
    down arrow to go down the level. You can hit down another time to the basement.
    There are some enemies for you to clear as well an apple and a wooden stick in
    the basement as well as level 2.
    At the basement, there are two skill fighters for you to clear to gain access
    to the three doors.
    
    Left Door: There are ninjas with weapons to clear. Donít jump because there are
    many lasers on top of you. There is an apple here. Clear this room to exit this
    room.
    
    Middle door: Control room. There are some skill fighters and Electras here. In
    the box contain a grenade. Thereís a computer for you to destroy for the
    security laser to shut down.
    
    Right door: Lots of Big Bens here as well Carlos and Donovan. Note that thereís
    a laser here. Jump to avoid contact. In the box is a grenade.
    
    The second floor door also contains the three doors and beat the man in suit to
    have the access to the doors. After entering a door, you have to beat the
    enemies to move on.
    
    Left door: There are robots here for you to clear. Be careful of the electric
    moving round the circuit filed. Thereís an apple here in the box.
    
    Middle door: Contains a control switch to deactivate the laser. Thereís a
    grenade in the boxes as well as enemies like the skill fighter and Electras.
    
    Right door: Lots of goodies
    
    Here there are two choices: Save or donít save the general
    If you save the general, there will be a route1. To save the general, simply
    run towards the once had laser area and run towards the general who is tied to
    the chair.
    If you donít save the general, you will go to route2. Just wait for time to go
    off and the heat will take the life of the general. Then you move to the area
    where there general is at level 2.
    
    Boss: The rocket man aka Jet
    
    His attacks:

    - Moves up and rolling attack at you
    - Does a flame short range attack at you
    - Does a superman like charge attack towards you.
    - Hovers freely in the air
    
    The purple guy in the rocket is the boss. When heís moving around at ground
    level, itís the best chance to attack him with some combos. Some fellow rocket
    man will accompany him. Take note of them because they also have some damaging
    moves. He has a rolling attack, which he moves high up and rolls down and gives
    a small range flame.
    
    Thatís when heís on ground and lands some combos on him or grabs him and slams
    him again. This is the better alternative because he will take some time to get
    up, and most importantly, heís still on the ground prone to your attacks. His
    second attack is grabbing the player and give a huge slam. When he moves down
    when you are near him, he will grab and slam you so keep a distance between you
    and him.
    
    He also can suddenly drop down with kick at far range so be careful. If you get
    surrounded, just use a special attack. He also has attacks when in range; he
    will fly like superman to hit you. To counter this, use a special attack or
    roll away or flying kick him (must be accurate). When you beat him, there will
    be a slow motion when he falls, then take this chance to beat some rocket man
    to gain points. (HehehÖ.)
    
    Stage 7
    
    Route 1:
    
    Area 1:
    
    There are some motorcycle thugs there as well some ninjas with weapons around

    you down,giving a considerable amount of damage. There are some robots here
    also so beware of their self-destructability. There are apples along the wooden
    crate. Clear the motorcycle thug
    with a life gauge to proceed further. Then there will be a number of ninjas
    with weapons and robots coming your way. Clear them and you will proceed to
    area 2.
    
    Area 2:
    
    There will be a number of robo Xs dashing around. Simply attacks them with B
    button to gain points. One punch to each of them is sufficient because their
    life gauge is rather short. Remember there are two crates here; one with
    chicken and the other gold bars. Then move on there will be robots here to
    clear.
    
    Note that thereís a chemical dropping down constantly, once it contact you, you
    will get a shock as well as the elevator move through and fro so be careful of

    - Top screen is full of electric bolts
    - When part of it is destroyed, it moves further to distance rather than just
    dive at you
    
    A doctor controls the robot claw. The claw is easy to dodge but remember that
    the elevator is pushing you up so control the momentum. Then hit the claw that
    dive down to hit you. When you damage enough, the claw will break and this part
    is tricky. The claw will not only dive at you and follows you for a while so
    donít move to the corner and get trap. Continue hitting the claw when it stops
    and you will destroy it in no time.
    
    Boss: Ned X

    - Charge at you with a bang
    - Jumps and grabs you and throw you
    - Grab and damage you
    - Shoots missiles at you
    - moves around fast pace
    
    This robot is easy. Donít let if get offensive. It can shoots two missiles and
    barge at you so be careful. When itís knock down, it gets up and flies towards
    you and grabs you to choke or slam you. Best bet is to flying kick. Then keep
    it up until itís out of your screen. When itís moving around fast, wait for him
    to come and do a special attack on him and he will fall and do the flying kick
    again.

    before or after the time runs out that constitute to different endings. If you

    him. Heís better than before. Donít grab him. He will do a special flame at the
    leg attacks. When he falls, move away from him. He gets up rather quick and
    does a fast flying kick before you can react. Should he get offensive, just use
    special attack. There are lots of goodies under the cameras so can all you can.
    Flying kick wonít work because he will get up and move away fast or do a quick
    flying kick.
    Just wait for him do an attack like final web and counterattack whenever you
    can and you will beat him in no time and see ending 3.

      ===========================================
      7. My review of the game
      ===========================================
    
    Intro:
    
    This game in my view is one of the best games that has to offer in Sega genesis
    if you are a beat 'em up fan. I bought this game game rather late as I bought
    my system quite late then and bought most of the great game like Golden Axe,
    Shinobi etc. This is one console with many decent games I like and still play
    even though it is outdated. Of all the three game series I play, this is one of
    my favourite games in my whole genesis system which I never regret buying.
    
    Story plot:
    
    This game is the third action-fighting squeal of the whole street of rage
    series. The series started with Blaze, Axel and Adam wiping out the vicious
    syndicate to save the city and make the city once again peaceful and the whole
    game series story plots sort of evolve this way.
    
    This gameís story plot evolves the letter sent by Blaze who needs Axelís help
    to save the general who is kidnapped by this syndicate. From now, Axel, Blaze
    together with Zen and Sammy has a mission of once again beat this syndicate
    down to size and save the streets of the city and battle this gang right down
    the ďStreets of RageĒ.
    
    This game is a one or two player game full of action fighting game that
    progresses with stages where the plot unfolds.
    
    Gameplay:
    
    They offer many changes to this game which I like. Finally, the characters in
    this game can Dash and roll which in this aspect. I'm disappointed because in
    the
    third installment, then Sega decided to add some real basic decent moves. I
    have been
    yearning for this for the past two series because in the two previous you are
    restricted to speed. In addition, battle mode is back for two players to spar
    it out and see who's the better SOR player,but disappointingly,there's no
    secrets players for you to battle it out in this battle mode.
    
    There are several secrets to uncover which I will not spoil it for you. New and
    innovative moves have been introduced as well as the special attack can finally
    be executed with the power bar there! No more decrease in life gauge when the
    special move is applied.Every time you use a Special Attack your Strength Gauge
    is taken down to zero.After that it will slowly recharge until it reads OK. If
    you use a SpecialAttack before your Strength Gauge has been refilled it will
    cost you health,the amount depending on how low your Strength is. There are
    differences between the American and Japanese version,like the dressing change
    between each characters as well as secret characters.Also changes between
    gameplay between each version,like the American version is much tougher that
    the Japanese one,an example is the one in begining of stage 1,in the Jp
    version,it is known to be Ash driving the motorboat,but in the American
    version,it's Shiva driving the motorboat.Another example is in stage 3,the
    barrels drops down faster in the American than the japanese one. So it's pretty
    interesting. Secret characters are also interesting as they have their own
    unique moves for them to do well especially Shiva.He can kill enemy with
    infinite hit by just pressing the Z button!! There are also new weapon special
    attacks which SOR and SOR2 lacks and I think it's cool to add these weapons
    special attack to bring more fun to the game.
    
    Controls:
    
    In terms of controls, it's rather easy but you need to learn the ropes before
    you can do any new moves introduced to the character. New enemies and some
    familiar are introduced to keep a keen interest to this game. With new tag team
    moves now introduced, you and your friend can do some tag teams moves
    previously not available! Enemies have some new features like picking up
    weapons, eating your food, new moves.
    
    Difficulty:
    
    In this aspect, the game's rather easy than the past two series. No more cheap
    1 life loss due to one attack from boss from SOR and damaging attacks by
    enemies and bosses in SOR2. Even in the very hard difficulty, I completed the
    game easily but I hope they keep the game just it is(or a bit difficult) with
    no cheap deadly attacks causing 1 life loss for just a plain attack by the
    boss!!
    
    Video and Audio:
    
    Video:
    Well, the video is great considering it is in the Genesis system. Faces and
    weapons' image have improved better. All I can say is, video is great although
    it can still improve on the surroundings and the whole background as I do
    prefer SOR2 background more.
    
    Audio:
    
    The music theme is great, with some themes worth listening to. But it can still
    improve and get better like the sound effects of weapons, attacks etc.
    
    Replay value:
    
    Well, the replay value has not improved but it's has multiple endings worth
    replaying again and again. The battle mode should keep this game with a little
    interest. I think should improve on the replay value like survival mode, time
    attack mode etc.
    
    Critics section
    
    Gameplay: 9/10
    Entertainment: 9/10
    Video and audio: 7/10
    Replay value: 7/10
    
    Conclusion
    
    Why should you buy the game?
    
    Overall, it's a great game on a great console and I think it's worth buying or
    renting for without any hesitant if you are a SOR fan all the while. All I can
    say is, try this game!! Beat 'em up gamers won't want to miss this game on this
    console 'cause I think you won't regret it.
