Streets of Rage 2

Mr. X and the Syndicate are back and this time they are taking Adam hostage! Take on the role of Axel, Blaze, Skate or Max to save Adam and destroy Mr. X once and for all.

Story

A year has passed since Adam Hunter, Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding successfully defeated Mr. X and broke the syndicate crime organization's hold on the city. Peace has returned to the streets, once-vacant neighborhoods are being repopulated, and prosperity has returned to the city. Adam has returned to the police force, while Axel and Blaze have moved out of the city and found jobs as bodyguards and dance instructors, respectively. On the anniversary of their victory over the Syndicate, Adam, Axel and Blaze reunite to celebrate and talk about old times. The next day, however, Axel receives a frantic call from Adam's younger brother, Eddie "Skate" Hunter, who came home from school to find the house completely trashed. Worse, no one at the police station had seen or heard from Adam since early that morning. Axel and Blaze jump into the investigation and find a photo of Adam lying in chains at the feet of a man they know all too well. Mr. X and the syndicate have returned and kidnapped Adam out of a thirst for revenge, luring Axel and Blaze into a trap. Adam's disappearance was the beginning of a new nightmare. Criminal elements swarmed to take back the streets. Gangs roamed the parks and bomb-wielding bikers made the streets deadly at night. Brawls and looting occurred regularly and in broad daylight. Chaos reigned in the city, much worse than ever before. Axel and Blaze tried to contact their old friends in the police force, who once supported them with heavy artillery. But everyone they knew had either been fired or transferred elsewhere. This time, the syndicate was in full control, and the two ex-cops were on their own. With the help of Adam's brother Skate and Axel's friend Max, Axel and Blaze set out to rescue their friend and destroy Mr. X once and for all. Standing in their way is the nastiest collection of punks and thugs ever assembled. Add to that a squad of professional fighters specially trained to take them out!
