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.

One of the best games for the NES
28 July 2006 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Rated E(Contains Violence)

Released in 1988 Double Dragon is one of the first side-scrolling beat-em up fighting games.Sort of like Final Fight.In my opinion this is one of the best games released for the NES.For 1988 it was almost flawless.

The graphics were fairly good for its time and the gameplay was fun and simple.Double Dragon is a nice fun fighting game.You can fight using your fists and legs or you could use various weapons that you can find.This is one of the first of many side-scrolling fighting games to come.Double Dragon is a fun and good NES game.One of the best NES games in my opinion.

9/10
