Storyline

Set in a post-apocalyptic New York, Double Dragon is the story Billy and Jimmy Lee, twin brothers trained in the fighting style of Sou-Setsu-Ken. Together, they managed a small martial arts training school, teaching their students to self-defense. One day, Billy's girlfriend, Marian, is kidnapped off the street by the 'Black Warriors', a savage street gang led by a man named Big Willy. The Black Warriors demand to the Lee brothers to disclose their martial arts secrets in exchange for Marian's freedom. The Lee brothers set out on a rescue mission to crush the Black Warriors and save Marian. Using whatever techniques they have in their disposal, from the basic punches and kicks to the invulnerable elbow strike, as well any weapon that comes into their hands including barrels, whips and bats, the Lee brothers must pursue the gang through the city slum, industrial area and the forest to reach their hideout and confront Big Willy.

Bad things happen when you mess with success.

Double Dragon (1988) was a terrible release. When the arcade classic made it's way to the N.E.S. I was stoked! That was until I played the game. It blew big time. The game was changed so much that it was barely recognizable. I was truly disappointed. The final nail in the coffin was the lack of a two player mode! That was it! Why did they have to mess with a good thing. Hell, I wouldn't mind the modification so much if the made it a two player game. That was the whole point of the game. I mean you can call it Double Dragon with only one player, now can you?

'nuff said.

C-

The Game Boy version is better than the N.E.S. one.
