In fact, just about everything they’ve made for the DS (and 3DS) has been highly rated and critically acclaimed. Every classic series that they’ve been given the opportunity to remake, they’ve done extremely well with. So, when I heard that they were handed the reins to Double Dragon, I did a mighty flip.
Then I had the chance to play it, and I feel like I might have landed on my head."
