IGN (Apr 28, 2008)
Double Dragon is undoubtedly still a classic and satisfying beat-‘em-up brawler from the age of the ‘80s. This NES version, though, unfortunately sacrificed the two-player simultaneous play option that made the arcade original so notable in the first place. It’s still a solid game and worth your consideration at its pricepoint of five bucks, but those gamers looking to take back the streets side-by-side with a friend would be better off with a download of last week’s River City Ransom, or else waiting for the potential arrival of Double Dragon II: The Revenge sometime in the future.
Nintendo Life (Apr 25, 2008)
All in all there are no complaints on this score. Despite its limitations on the NES hardware, the conversion of Double Dragon still manages to provide lots of entertainment. You will probably be able to complete the game in less than half an hour, but it is always fun to go back to from time to time.

Judged as a single-player experience, Double Dragon is a surprisingly decent scrolling brawler given the limits of the hardware. It's no Streets of Rage 2 but it does include the ability to pick up and use enemy weapons, ladders and elevated areas, and a range of attacks including headbutts, knees to the face and spinning roundhouse kicks. There are a few sudden death moments - such as a water trap that spells instant game over, regardless of how many lives you have - but it's a solid little fighter that has aged rather well.
