Double Dragon II: The Revenge - Retro Reflections

Chalgyr's Game Room writes:

There is really no getting around it - I have been on a huge Double Dragon kick lately. I blame the recently released Double Dragon Trilogy on Steam. That got me back to comparing the first Double Dragon's arcade release to its NES counterpart. I had played both versions of the game a lot when I was younger. However, I had never seen Double Dragon II or III in the arcade, so the Steam trilogy release was my first time getting to play those. I only felt it was fair to go back and take a look at Double Dragon II on the NES afterwards.


The Best NES Games Under $8, $10, and $12

Despite skyrocketing retro game prices the NES remains a deep trove of excellent games that, if you can avoid eBay sellers, are really quite affordable for new collectors.

At that price, I'm gonna go get TMNT and suck at it all over again

That electric seaweed is calling my name!

Longie_long689d ago

The sound when you touch it... I hear it in my dreams.

I remember one of the levels in Retro City Rampage was paying homage to those seaweed segments. Not quite as hard but man did it bring back bad memories of my many deaths on that level. Never did beat that game without the Game Genie. Same with Battletoads. lol

The top-down view theme music was stuck in my head all day as a kid.

I'm not sure if I ever completed a no-damage seaweed run.

Double Dragon 2 is one of the best!! Several good games on this list! Shadowgate, P.O.W., and Klax. That is actually a super fun puzzle game! TMNT, I think every time after the seaweed, I only had like 1 Turtle left. lol

camel_toad688d ago (Edited 688d ago )

Shadowgate was how I got so familiar with Nintendo's helpline lol. But man did I love that game.

And wow I forgot all about P.O.W. until you mentioned it. Man being a kid with a NES really was the good ol days.

Best birthday ever: 15 and I got a Super Nintendo with Super Mario World, Pilot Wings and Street Fighter. (Spoiled rotten) And I saw Basic Instinct at the theater!

I'd pick up an arcade port. Not interested in a NES port.

Ready4nxtgen1308d ago

This I's the best version. Graphics wise, sound wise and gameplay wise. There is no comparison. The arcade version is terrible in comparison

CosmicTurtle1308d ago

Weirdly the NES version is superior by some margin in my opinion. It is far more responsive and fair than the graphically superior coin-op.

Double Dragon 1-3, River City Ransom, Renegade, Super Dodge Ball? Omg I played the living daylights outta these! Shoot, nice adds!

Knightofelemia1327d ago

Hopefully there will be an option to turn off those stupid side borders. Great line up never played the NES version of Double Dragon I only own the SMS version.

Neonridr1327d ago

hard to do when playing on a 16:9 monitor with a game that was designed for 4:3

Thought this was going to be Nintendo returning the favour to Microsoft for their exclusives.

autobotdan1327d ago

Why is the final boss of Double Dragon the only character in the game with a gun? There is an entire gang running the streets with baseball bats, dynamite, giant rocks etc. But none of them carry guns. They will kill you throwing giant rocks at you

Knushwood Butt1326d ago

Giant rocks are cheaper than guns.

Also, whips were in plentiful supply.

Auron1326d ago

Nice. Will definately get RCR.
