It has loads of replay value for me and I can honestly say the only character I’ve ever used is Blaze Fielding. I would go as far as to say she is my favourite video game character.
I guess when I was younger I admired her. Admired her move set, clothes and just general bad ass-ery. As a rule I generally dislike girl protagonists (please don’t hate me, everyone has their own opinions), but there was something about Blaze I LOVED.
All in all, Blaze has a great character in Streets Of Rage 2 which happens to be one of my favourite games ever.
