Review Arcade Archives Double Dragon (Switch eShop)
Brief, flawed but enjoyable arcade action
Scrolling beat ‘em ups may be simple affairs that just have you moving along smacking groups of thugs in the face, but when they are done right they can be hugely entertaining. Before Streets Of Rage, before Final Fight the game that got people excited was Technos’ Double Dragon, which put you in control...
About The Game
Twin brothers fight their way into armed gang territories to save the damsel in distress!
"DOUBLE DRAGON" is an action game that was released from Technos Japan in 1987.
Two brothers fight with evil, to rescue Marian that has been kidnapped by violence organization.
The "Arcade Archives" series has faithfully reproduced many classic Arcade masterpieces.
Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores.
Please enjoy the masterpiece that built a generation for video games.
This is where it began folks... an arcade legend and forerunner to Street Fighter. I spent so many hours playing this in the arcade.
Lost so many quarters with this game!
Bought it at last. I was hesitating because so many people complained about it being outdated, but... it's a piece of video game history, and I had never played it, so I had to have it. Plus, I got an eShop card code with discount, so it helped. Lol.
This is an INCREDIBLE arcade-perfect port on the Switch. Plays perfectly like the arcade did and you can also take it with you and play on the go on trips! It's outdated if you are looking for specials beyond the special moves or faster speed with "achievements," however if you just want to beat up "bad guys" who stole your girlfriend, go at it!
