Beat ’em ups are not known for their impressive length. Usually the gameplay driven experiences rely heavily on replay value, or unusual gimmicks. While Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons has various unlocks and optional content, there are still questions about how long the experience actually is. - IS
Ron from NoobFeed writes - Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons is one of the best games in the series, combining elements of a beat 'em up with those of a roguelike while maintaining the challenge for which Double Dragon is known. The sprite animation is superb. It's a decent buy for the price of $25. You can get a fantastic time on the standard difficulty. This game will put your understanding of beat 'em ups to the test on the more challenging modes.
Review - This is not a game of the year contender, but it’s a good starting point for the new direction and rejuvenation of Double Dragon
Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons can be a fun cooperative brawler, but it falls short of delivering the ultimate blow.
