Computer and Video Games (CVG)
An accurate conversion of the popular arcade combat game which beat 'em up fans should relish.
ST Format
The original arcade game is a wicked laugh, but this conversion is disappointing. The sprites are very small and there are two or three glitches which can make it hard to finish a level - jumping up onto the boxes is nigh on impossible. The game is more fun with two players, particularly when one of you is getting beaten up and the other just looks on gleefully.
The One
All these moans aside, for some reason Double Dragon manages to be quite playable (in a funny sort of way) in its own right, and the final two-player set-to where Billy and Jimmy fight it out for the affections of the shackled girl produced hoots of laughter from the participants. However, as it's In the "so bad it's almost good" class, I doubt that anyone who splashes out the asking price for it will see the funny side.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
I would like to recommend Double Dragon, because when it comes down to it, it is quite fun. But I can't because it's just far too easy to be worth it, and for a coin-op conversion opportunity of this "cult" appeal it is not quite there.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Unbelievable easy, the ST version was completed at the first sitting in one player mode. Irrespective of any aesthetic factors, this makes Double Dragon a total waste of time and money.
