ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Double Dragon is easily the best beat 'em-up released on the Gameboy thus far. Sprite and backdrop graphics are intricate with a high degree of detail. Boss sprites are big, the vertical and horizontal scrolling is smooth. Soundtracks can became rather irritating, but the sound effects have punchy impact. Sure, this version is easy to complete - but you'll have lots of fun in the process. The link-up mode is just beyond the beat. Double Dragon - get ready to take it out.

If anything takes away from this excellent port, it's dying. Dying isn't exactly present in any form, but when it takes you all the way back to the start of the stage regardless of how far in you've gotten, then it's even worse. Add in some "leap-of-faith" jumping segments and you have one of the more unforgiving versions of Double Dragon. While a few minor quirks drop this one from the flawless status it could've received, this is still a must play if you own a Game Boy. There isn't a better playing side-scroller for the console in any form. Fans of the series will be pleased with this excellent conversion.

Um bom recurso deste game é que ele pode ser jogado por dois jogadores simultaneamente. Para isso, serão necessários dois aparelhos e um cabo que interliga os dois. A história é a mesma do grande sucesso Nintendo, no qual os irmãos Jimmy e Billy Lee tentam salvar a amiga Marion.

The graphics are quite superb, with backgrounds that would put many other bigger machines to shame - even in black and green. The only problem is that sometimes it is very difficult to work out which character you're controlling due to the blurred effect the Game Boy gives. The sound is impressive, with a super in-game tune pounding away throughout. The effects aren't quite as imaginative, but the playability, in a good light, is easily as good as any other version of the game.

Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
GameBoy Double Dragon is a nearly perfect version of the classic coin-op. The graphics are good, the play is identical to previous versions and the detail in the backgrounds is retained. A good action title that does complete justice to the title.

All Game Guide
If you haven't played too much Double Dragon on other systems you may want to try this one. It is the same as most of the other versions so if you have played a lot of this game on other systems then you might get tired of the game quickly. There is a 2 player link mode if you want to play with a friend.
