Axel, every time.Got the perfect balance of power and speed.His Dragon punch was lethal and come on, the dudes arm turns into a firey dragon when pulling off his turning punch, beat that. :wink:

Axel. The other characters are less well rounded and, um, fun. Max is slooooooooow, skate is annoying. Blaze is ok I suppose.

Blaze, perfectly balanced character which is just what I want. Hated Skate and would gladly do without. Axel was bleh to me and Max was too slow for my liking.

Definitely Axel. His special move with the flurry of punches followed by an uppercut is really useful against the bosses.

Whether you want speed, power, exuberance or grace you've got four characters that tick all those boxes for your desired beat em up game style. I always go Axel, or Blaze because they’re the easiest to get on with, and I’m a sucker for a foxy brunette in a mini skirt :wink: :P

I always play as Axel (unless it is two player). Blaze is more balanced but Axel has power over her and he is easier to play as, I find myself sometimes missing attacks as Blaze.

Axel has the uber-cool reverse punch.

Skate because I felt I could relate to him being the weakest of the bunch, but being fast and having quick moves,
I kinda liked playing as him, was kinda like a hard mode, not that streets 2 isn't hard enough.

BLAZE! she has the best moves and simply gets out of trickier spots the easiest with her spin kick. Also her fireball is great for bosses. She certainly is the character of my choice.

Max- Best power, best for points, he has coolest looking moves and if used properly is indestructable. The Atomic Drop owns all in that game and there is no finer satisfaction that Atomic Dropping bosses where you can. Love it!

I only ever play this on two-player, and as I'm too slow to get Blaze, Max is who I use most. Axel's out for being boring, and Skate's out for being ridiculous, so Max it is!
