The NES version is a fun adaptation of the original arcade classic however there is no 2 player simultaneous option in the main game which is a crying shame (even the Master System adaption managed this). That being said there is a VS mode added in to allow you to take out your aggression on a friend. At the end of the day the single player game is still a hoot to play so we think Double Dragon still deserves its classic status on the NES, but don’t say we didn’t warn you.
And that’s it for this week, only one game! Next week in the series of NES beat ‘em ups we’ll be getting Renegade. Let’s hope there is another game to go with it as it is not in the same league as Double Dragon or River City Ransom sadly.
Note: This game will not be available in the North American Wii Shop Channel until 9 a.m. Pacific time on Mon 28th April.
