Compensa? Não era mistério que "Double Dragon" seria uma cópia fiel do arcade da década de 80, surpresa é ver os mesmos pequenos defeitos que hoje não se justificam. Novas fases também poderiam ferir a essência do clássico, mas muitos jogos para Xbox Live Arcade dobraram esse problema adicionando modalidades extras. Conhece o Abobo? Se sim e já está dando risadas, baixe correndo que a nostalgia é pura. Quem não foi apresentado convém testar o demo primeiro. Recomendado, mas raspando.

Nichts desto trotz ist Double Dragon ein guter Titel für Beat `em up-Fans und Nostalgiker, welcher durchaus seinen Reiz hat, immer wieder für Zwischendurch ganz gut ist und vor allem zu zweit sein ganzes Potential entfalten kann.

Yes, games have come and gone in the beat-em-up category, and many have managed to surpass Double Dragon's greatness (most of them from Capcom). However, there's no reason you can't enjoy DD if you've ever played other classics like Final Fight. It remains a key ingredient in video game history for a reason, and it's addictive co-op remains intact.

Nostalgia can be a harsh mistress, and with Double Dragon, odds are that in playing it now, it isn't going to live up to every fond memory you have of plunking down quarters on it in '80s-era arcades. Still, it's not bereft of amusement. Playing the game single-console or online with friends can be entertaining (just beware of periodic connection issues with the online play), and the new graphics do give the game a nice, new sheen. This is the sort of game you'll pay the $5 for, play a few times, get all the achievements, be over and done with, but still come out basically satisfied in the end.

Double Dragon can be fun, but it under-delivers. This is a five-dollar game. You deserve more than a crap framerate and lingering bugs. The fact that co-op is so difficult due to the slowdown sucks most of the joy from Double Dragon. I was one of the many eager to play Double Dragon on XBLA. The wait wasn't worth it. Save your cash. If you want to waste five bucks, send it my way. I could use it.

With an improved GBA version on the market already, maybe arcade-perfect was never something to aspire to after all.
Retro Gamer (Mar 29, 2007)
Yes, it's a relatively easy fighter (easier still if you just use the head butt or elbow moves) but it's also amazing fun, especially when you're joined by a second player. It will be interesting to see what other titles Xplosiv will be bringing to Live Arcade, but if they match the quality of Double Dragon we'll be more than happy.
