Double Dragon était joli mais bien trop facile ; la suite avait comblé les lacunes en donnant un jeu sympa mais Double Dragon 3 nous fait oublier cela par une jouabilité exécrable et des graphismes louches.
Power Play
Das uralte Spielprinzip langweilt, zudem bilden Brüder und Gegner ein undurchschaubares Pixelknäuel. Nur der Link-Mode hebt das Spiel knapp ins Mittelgewicht.
Les graphismes sont nuls et sombres, mais c'est surtout la maniabilité qui est en dessous de tout. Il faut se battre pour survivre, tant les coups sont difficiles à négocier. Seul point positif : on peut jouer à deux simultanément. Pour le reste, je cherche encore une bonne raison pour vous conseiller d'acheter ce jeu. En fait, je crois qu'il n'y en a pas, voilà !

If the enemies weren't so cheap and utterly impossible, this game would have gotten a better score, despite the poor sounds and graphics. A game doesn't need super graphics and sounds to be exceptional, but it certainly needs fair game play. I wanted to like this game and am a big fan of the DD series. I can not recommend it, though. If you're desperate for a side-scrolling fighter for Gameboy, take a chance but beware! Personally, I would tell you to try one of the other Double Dragon games (the first one was a good translation, comparable to the NES version) on the console or get a Gameboy Advance and check out Final Fight One.
