Double Dragon II: The Revenge Review - NLife

"There was a period from the late-'80s to the early-'90s when side-scrolling beat 'em up games were all the (streets of?) rage – from Double Dragon to Final Fight to Streets of Rage, we just couldn't get enough of punching hooligans in the face down long straight paths. Perhaps the most fun aspect of these titles was the multiplayer cooperative gameplay, so we weren't just kicking mobsters in the stomach... we were kicking mobsters in the stomach together. These arcade classics were ported to home consoles with varying degrees of success, often heavily modified to fit into measly game cartridges."

There are punk chicks beating she crap out of you...

" you're better off tracking down the far superior arcade version."

Never liked the arcade version. Actually think the music and visuals are worse ( regardless of it having a higher color depth, its art is just meh and the music is too noisy ) and feels more rigid.

Granted the controls are kinda weird, but you get used to it after a while though.

I don't care what that reviewer said it was a great game! I think he wishes he could have retroactively added more modern features to the game. I didn't care what the characters looked like and cared little if, there were duplicate characters. I think if, you get beat up a lot cause you don't like the controls you may not like it, but if, you can play I found it very enjoyable. It is a challenging game, but a good time.
