Double Dragon 2

It should come as no surprise to hear that Double Dragon 2 is a beat-'em-up. Once again you're the hero, strutting down the street, giving hell to the, if you will, punks, perps and bad guys. Quite why isn't really apparent. Anyhow, the punks and so on and so forth come at you in twos and threes, and with a deft flick of the boot, fall to your superior power.

There's a bit of clambering about the furniture (you wouldn't do that if you were at home now, would you?) and then some more pulverisation. Graphics are decidedly average, and the sound is, er, pretty weird: when he dies, the hero lets out an "ohh" that makes him sound like he's just missed his last bus rather than writhing around dying in agony.


Much of a muchness, really. After all, if you've seen one beat-'em-up, you've more or less seen them all. However, some seem to have a certain something that keep you at them for a little while at least, and Double Dragon 2 is one of them. It's dated, fun for twenty minutes, and worth the money if you've nothing better to spend it on.

In Brief

  1. Not much different to Ninja Spirit, Final Fight, Shadow Dancer ad nauseum, ad your own.
