Bought this for my Sega Master System since I prefer the real console to re-released versions. This game is quite short, but the gameplay is fun and I find the replay value to be high especially on the multiplayer mode.

This game suffers heavily from flickering sprites, but due to the number of enemies that appear on the screen at once, it can't really be faulted for this since the Master System is a very old and limited console.

As an 8-bit game, the graphics are good but the audio I found to be a bit lacking, but because of the console that it's on with the hardware limitations I won't vote the game down for this.

Overall if you're looking for a classic beat em up game to play on the real Master System console, this is a good buy.

Double Dragon was the first scrolling beat 'em up to feature simultaneous 2 player action, weapons and end of level bosses and the arcade version is one of the best games ever in my opinion. However for some reason nearly all of the home versions released at the time were poor.

The exception though was the Master System version (which is far superior to the so-so NES version). All the moves, weapons, levels, 2 player option and music are here. The games faithful to the original and is fairly easy until the rock solid last level, but you'll beat it with practice.

In 1987 Technos Japan released Double Dragon in the arcades, and it helped popularize the beat-'em-up genre. Several games companies through the 90's and 2000's came up with their own fighting games in a bid to match the success of DD. In 1988 the game was released on several home consoles, such as the NES, the ZX Spectrum, and the SEGA Master System; and it's the version on that last one that we're gonna take a look at.

Double Dragon revolves around Billy Lee and Jimmy, two hard nut twins who are not afraid to throw a few punches. Their love interest (Yes, both of them are after the same girl!) Marian gets punched in the stomach and kidnapped by a group of thugs. The twins have to rescue her by punching, kicking and kneeing any bad guys that get in their way. There are four levels to play through: the city streets, a factory, the woods, and finally the enemy hideout hidden in the mountains. Oh by the way, men punching women in the stomach is cowardly and wrong. Don't try it at home. Don't try it, PERIOD!

The graphics are OK. Being a Master System game they were always gonna have a hard time matching up to the arcade version. But there are some neat details to look at, like the box with the SEGA logo on it that can be thrown in the factory, and the posters on the walls of the city streets that bare a striking resemblance to Andy Crane (a CBBC presenter in the late 80's. He also hosted a video game show called Bad Influence! on CITV in the early 90's.)

The main problem with Double Dragon is that its randomness is what makes this game extremely difficult. Even when you've gotten to grips with all the moves the fights with the enemies can be rather hit-and-miss.

Meeeh. Bad port of a great co-op game. It's not terrible but it's not much fun either. It's also quite glitchy
