In both the 16-versions (Amiga and Atari ST) the bros are colourful, neatly drawn chaps who take their baddie-biffing very seriously. Only gripe is the lack of the Amiga's colour palette for background graphics.

When the first Double Dragon appeared this time last year, it was received with almost uniformly awful reviews. Readers voted it one of the worst games of the year. Disappointment was evident because expectations were high. The appearance and subsequent licensing of Double Dragon II gave Virgin another chance to produce a game which does the coin-op justice and this time they have made a better fist of it.

Kurzum: Double Dragon II ist ein grafisch schön gemachtes Beat ‘em up mit ausgezeichneter Spielbarkeit! Wer sich trotzdem an den kleinen Macken wie der mäßigen „Intelligenz“ der Gegner und des Anleitungs-Übersetzers stört, ist schon ein arger Spielverderber.
The most noticeable fact is the use of the full screen facility. In most cases this helps to provide a more arcade like feel. Unfortunately, due to the lack of a real perspective effect on the backdrops, the effect is somewhat lost. Unlike the arcade and ST version, the screen only scrolls left.
Bleibt alles in allem also ein überzeugendes Actionspiel, das getrost als gelungene Automatenumsetzung bezeichnet werden kann. Das darf jedoch nicht darüber hinwegtäuschen, daß auch DD II mit der Zeit schnell an Reiz verliert. Zu einseitig ist der Spielablauf, zu gering sind die Variationen bei den Angriffstaktiken. Für einen Hit reicht‘s also nicht, aber Fans der Bildschirm-Prügelei bekommen mit DOUBLE DRAGON II eindeutig das beste Spiel dieser Art in die Hand - oder Faust?

Five years ago the brilliant Double Dragon team, Billy and Jimmy Lee, rescued the beautiful transsexual singer Marilyn (Marian on the C64) from the clutches of the evil Shadow Boss. Until yesterday the three friends lived together quite happily. Yesterday Marilyn was shot dead, and the Lee brothers have sworn revenge.
