    i think the other problems with this game is that levels are to long and repetitive, the lift bit drags on far to much and the amount of enemies you have to fight per screen stops ruins the progress of the game.

    The blocking on this game is hit and miss, as it works when it wants to work, the idea behind is good but the way its implemented is poor.

    but your right no options at the beginning and no story, what were they thinking.

    the main problem with this game it looks and feels like a NES game(a poor NES game)and it looks like its been given a lick of paint, the snes was graphically capable of such more and the music too was also forgettable.

    The original team on Double Dragon did everything right, short levels,right amount of baddies per screen,amazing music and the game was never frustrating.

    conclusion different teams brought in to cash in on the name of the DD legacy, but with no real though and homage payed to the original classic.

    nice vid by the way

        but i can’t understand why that team of of dick heads went out of there way to destroy this really cool series

        I don’t think the team set out to tarnish the legacy, it’s just the made a very average game.

        When you think about most DD related things have been poor

        Double dragon 2+3
        double dragon the animated series
        Double dragon the movie
        Double dragon shadow falls(the Snes game, I think that’s what it was called)
        The 8bit home computer versions
        And that list could carry on

        It’s just a series that has been watered down so much, it had got some good games

        Master system double dragon
        Double dragon 2 Nes
        Double dragon on the Neo Geo

        I guess it’s the direction the team go with an idea, sometime what looks good in paper doesn’t actually work out

    Did I hear Andy say Double Dragon 2 was bad?

    That was a goodern like the first one in my books. The MD/Megadrive/Genesis version of 2 was bad though.

    • Andy says:

      DD 2 arcade wasn’t a great game.
      I actually found it too samey compared to the 1st game.

      It didn’t improve much, the graphics were just shiner and the level layout apart from a graphical make over were more or less the same.

      DD2 was not bad bad bad, but just average, we expected so much more for the sequel to the classic DD.
      (the Nes got it right withDD2)

      But all in all This snes game is 1 of the worst.

    I recently went through all my SNES roms and fired this up. I think I switched it off after 5 seconds! The Rise of the Robots of side scrolling beat’em-ups!

    Please don’t take this the wrong way but complaining about how much energy you loose through being stabbed with a knife is a pretty silly comment to make. If i was to throw a big knife into you, can you honestly say it wouldn’t hurt much?

    Also you are repeatedly using the same move over and over, so it’s no wonder that you are loosing energy so quickly.

    I’m not defending the game (Ive only ever played it a few times myself as it doesn’t really feel like Double Dragon to me) but you could could say the same thing about any beat em up really.
