Wow what an excellent game Target Renegade was back in the day. I remember vividly the time cos I was 12 years old when this superb game was released to a beat 'em up hungry fan base. We had already had our kicks previously with Renegade but Target Renegade upped the anti massively.  You took on the roll as a dude (or 2 dudes in co op mode) who would take on Mr Big, the big bad boss. The game was spread over 5 different levels (Multi story car park,sleazy street,park,the mall & the bar) and you would beat up as many foes along the way to reach Mr Big.  The graphics were not as good as renegades but the action and music surpassed in droves. You could pick up many assorted weapons including baseball bats and axes to strike your enemy with but you could be attacked by them too.  The levels were very varied and the balance of difficulty was spot on. Give this gem a go you won't be disappointed.
