165 Streets of the Same
Streets of Rage 2
I never had the love for Streets of Rage 2 as much I did for the original, however the majority seem to disagree. Streets of Rage 2 always felt like it was just a slightly newer version of the original, but less fun. Blaze, on the right, took on the appearance of a whore and Axel (on the left) now looked in pain as he was hunched up – all cool was lost…
And by removing the only rubbish character of the first one, they included 2 even worse, Max (the fat one) and Skate (the annoying one).
Hell, it just wasn’t the first one. But it tried to be. However, when playd asked to draw out the set of characters for their replayd feature I gladly said yes. It was worth it to draw Axel and Blaze. I had to make sure I got Blaze with the correct mixture of hardcore beefcake vs. hardcore pornstar that she acquired in the 2nd game…
The thought process was simple for this one, it could of been more dynamic but alas it did the job.
