@DudeSean: I too would prefer Return over Super. Like ogo said, I doubt it . It is to bad they rushed Super Double Dragon. That game is great and could've been even better!

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Now that Double Dragon II is finally on the Virtual Console, how about Double Dragon Advance? I think DD2 is the best in the series, but the GBA entry comes in a close second. Just imagine playing co-op on a big screen with a wider viewing angle. The potential!

If anything I would expect them to release that on the 3DS VC.

Yeah, I know. But think about it. GBA games on a big screen! Mario Kart Advance on the Wii/Wii U Virtual Console, along with like a hundred others.

Well if you really want that all you have to do is get a Gamecube and a Gameboy advance player.

That's fine for single player games, but the Game Boy Advance Player doesn't support more than one player though. Still, thanks for reminding me that exists.

Ah I didnt know that but up until a few days ago I never had the chance to play the GBA player. Thats good to know of course all the GBA games I own are single player.

It does have a link port (though of course that would require a GBA and possible an extra copy of the game).

I have to admit, I like Double Dragon III better than Double Dragon II.

Wow, you're one of the few Ryno. Most people have the same view of Double Dragon 3 as the AVGN. As for how I rank the Double Dragon games, I prefer them in this order: Double Dragon 2, Double Dragon Advance, Double Dragon 1, Double Dragon 3. I never really got to play Super Double Dragon but I'm sure it's better than 3.

Yeah PoorVGameNerd, I was playing both of them last night and I surprised myself. The spin kick is easier to pull off in DDIII.

My order is Double Dragon (mainly because of nostalgia is it ranked first), Super Double Dragon, Double Dragon III: The Sacred Stones, Double Dragon II: The Revenge and I have never played Advance. I got to be the only guy who has Double Dragon II ranked last! :p

Double Dragon 3 isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. I bought my copy around 2003-2004 and regretted it after 5 minutes of playing. I felt exactly the way the AVGN did, but I later figured out how to play and now I am glad I bought it. The only thing that is truly horrible is the end boss. She's so ridiculously powerful.

I have to agree with you on the music. There are a few tracks that are pretty memorable.

I thought this was shovelware at first, consider how much I HATED the first game because of no co op, and that stupid Chibi mode.

But I'm glad this has co-op multiplayer. Now to go buy it when I get wii points! Can't believe I thought it was bad.

No, I meant moving up and down to avoid attacks and separating the enemies from each other. Divide and conquer. I prefer to use Billy most of the time, but Chin Seimei's four hit combo is amazing. The only part I really need the ninja for is the beginning of Mission 5. Those jumps at the beginning are really easy thanks to his incredible jumping skills. It's too scary to use anyone else at that part.

The music is pretty good. The song when you get out the Double D Dojo in the U.S. is vintage NES chip tune classic goodness with a hint of Marianberry on top. You should definitely give it another whirl. It's pretty cheap overall and you got the skillz to handle it.
