Playable, colourful, detailed and, although not the Amiga, decent sound effects and tune. Compared to other 16-bit beat-'em-ups, Double Dragon II - The Revenge is a major improvement and competitively priced.

Of the two versions I've seen, this can claim to be the closest to the original. The graphics are essentially the same as the Amiga version, large and brightly coloured, though the backdrops have changed and have a nice forced perspective look to them. A game that greatly enhanced by the two player mode.
[Budget re-release] Much of a muchness, really. After all, if you've seen one beat-'em-up, you've more or less seen them all. However, some seem to have a certain something that keep you at them for a little while at least, and Double Dragon 2 is one of them. It's dated, fun for 20 minutes, and worth the money if you've nothing better to spend it on.
