Taking its name from Streets of Rage 2's iconic stage one song, Go Straight is a celebration of the beat' em up genre. From its beginnings with 1984's Kung-Fu Master, the book features over 200 releases that take readers right up to Streets of Rage 4 in 2020. Featuring heavyweights like Final Fight, Double Dagon, Battletoads, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the book dives into making-of facts, detailed impressions, gameplay tips and plenty of trivia for fans of the genre to enjoy.
Featuring a foreword by Double Dragon creator, Yoshihisa Kishimoto, Go Straight is the ultimate guide to a genre that continues to go from strength to strength.
