The 8-bit versions of Double Dragon didn't really go very well with Amstrad owners when it first released owing to the fact that it doesn't look, sound or play much like it's arcade parent. A pretty mediocre release.

Ce qui faisait illusion dans les années 80 n’a pas nécessairement bien vécu le passage du temps. Nul doute que Double Dragon sur CPC aura fait bien des heureux à sa sortie (du moins pour ceux ayant bénéficié de la « bonne » version). À l’heure actuelle, on sera surtout frustré d’hériter d’une version ludiquement aussi limitée que ses équivalents sur Amiga et Atari ST, mais en plus moche. Au moins aura-t-on eu la chance de récupérer la musique… Les acquéreurs de la « mauvaise » version, eux, auront sans doute passé un très mauvais moment sur un des jeux les plus lents jamais programmés.
