That said, for those of you out there who need no encouragement to gobble up the next beat 'em up, this conversion is easily good enough to warrant your attention.

On my second go, I managed to get to level three, and considering there are only five levels, it won't take you weeks to complete it. DD3 is better as a two player game, but you can't beat up your mate as in the first two versions. I recommend this game to beat-'em-up freaks and Double Dragon fans, but there are better games out there – this one suffers from the "too many sequels" syndrome. Watch out for Double Dragon 4 – Jimmy and Billy open a Greek restaurant and get invaded by aliens from the planet Be'at Emup (now that sounds like a good idea – Games Industry type person). Whoops, I should've my mouth shut.

Der dritte Teil der Drachensaga bringt gegenüber den Vorgängern wenig neue Ideen ans Tageslicht: Immerhin darf jetzt in Läden preisgünstig eingekauft werden. Grafik und Sound fielen dagegen wesentlich netter aus. Auch die Scharen angreifender Bösewichter verhalten sich intelligenter und hinterhältiger. Die Steuerung ist praktisch identisch mit der der Vorgänger: Bewegungsarmut gepaart mit dem dümmlichen Drang, ständig nach rechts marschieren zu müssen. Trotz dieses Mankos bietet Double Dragon 3 mehr Prügelspaß als beide Vorgänger zusammen - gegen "Golden Axe" ist es jedoch ein Langweiler. Prügelfans können ihre Sammlung mit einem grafisch ansprechenden Spiel komplettieren; für die heutige Zeit fehlt Double Dragon 3 jedoch der Pfiff.
