Double Dragon is the greatest beat em up of all time for the NES. It has great graphics for 1988 and plenty of move variations. You actually gain hearts through the game that give you new attacks! Early in the game you have limited attacks, punch, kick, headbutt, but later you get uppercuts, spin kicks, and other sweet moves.
Double Dragon holds some of my best childhood memories! I still play it weekly to this day, on virtual console.
I believe the NES version is the best version of double dragon. and FYI, there are two versions of the NES double dragon, the older one with the original NES seal of quality, and the new version with the new seal of quality. I also believe that the title screens are a little different between the two versions as well.
One of the best games that came out for the Nintendo that started out in the arcades. Punch and kick your way through hundreds of street toughs to rescue your girl. Definitly a great two-player game, Double Dragon also spawned two direct sequels as well as a team-up with the Battletoads. However, the basis of these games starts here. A classic.
MODE A: Great single player beat em up game. This game is suitable for nearly all ages. I say this because it does have its tough parts and the less skilled or patient players will not make it past stage 3. With only 4 stages in the game, its a rather short game. But it is one of them games where you can try and try to master it but always seem to come up short... I hate that...
In 2 player, it takes turns by every death. so if one player can run and beat the game... sorry player 2... you dont get to play
To all the new player to this game, Im gunna say im sorry for the salagtite in stage 3 and the walls at the start of stage 4. also the second to last guy of the game who has a gun... he sucks too...
MODE B: Im not a fan of this mode. The multi player is really not the greats... well its all in a mater of opinion, i honestly think it sucks. can be funny here and there but overall it sucks...
Double dragon is one of the best fighting games on NES. It takes me back to when I was a kid. I forgot that on this game you can't play two players at the same time on story mode. Next, I've got to get double dragon two.
This falls under the umbrella of Great Arcade Game, NOT Ported Correctly to the Nes home console. Double Dragon, it's in the title DOUBLE meaning 2, but because of the then ignorance of truly getting every bit of efficiency out of the 8 bit nes hardware, it's only one player at a time, causing the second player that You uses to co-op with on the arcade version is stuck eating chips and actually hoping that You die so they get their turn, sad actually quite sad.
You'll love the game if You're a stag gamer, because You won't be prone to the co-op dilemma but Double Dragon is a single player per turn game and that kills it's true essence.
