Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.
With an army of palleteswapped streetpunks, health-restoring food hidden in trash cans, fragile melee weapons, rare firearms, and cheery electronic music, Action Doom 2: Urban Brawl [official site] is the finest Streets of Rage homage beat ’em up I’ve played in years. Even more impressive is that the free game does this from a first-person perspective in a modified version of the Doom engine.
