I would say during my younger days i actually play Streets of Rage 2 Half way because it was a rented game from the game shop for 3 days, but i actually start off from Bare Knuckle 3. Well honestly when i started the Bare Knuckle 3 that time, among the 4 characters on screen i only like Axel because his cool in the portrait. Later on i slowly explore other characters as i play the game alone along.
As i play this series for months, later i heard people saying Roo and Shiva Boss can be played. I started to discover game cheats and focus more on secret characters like Shiva. Because this Boss was very fast and he has more strategy than other 4 characters.
Now i learn to replace new characters into Bare Knuckle 3, as you can see on the hacking section.
