I liked the bottleneck line. There are all these ideas from old games that fed into Double Dragon, and then on the other end that one particular game inspired dozens more. So true!

I really can't take your advice (and play Double Dragon only after Final Fight and the like), unfortunately, because the first real brawler that I played was, I believe, Double Dragon for the NES. I also played Renegade around that time, so it's hard to say exactly, but I think Double Dragon was the first. I had quite a bit of fun with it and I've played it since, but never gotten past the point where the two heavies (Abobo or whatever) break free from the rock wall and pummel me.

Great review, by the way!

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Double Dragon brings back memories of the PC version. It crashed if you beat the final boss on your own (because that's where it wants to trigger the player characters fighting each other). It wasn't possible to bring in a second player in the final stage, I believe, so I learned to do that at the end of the previous one and then just control them both with the keyboard in the final stage (with one just trailing the other).

From there on I started doing it in Golden Axe as well.

Thanks for all the feedback.

Double Dragon is probably one of the rare arcade games where I like the console version (NES) a bit more. Will try to keep up the output.

NEXT WEEK: X-MEN!

I think the NES version of Double Dragon II is also better than the arcade original.
