Description of Double Dragon II: The Revenge

After Arcadia did a dismal PC conversion of Technos' arcade blockbuster Double Dragon, Technos USA wisely decided to choose a different company to do a PC conversion of the second game, Double Dragon II: The Revenge. The result is a much better and more faithful conversion that is fun to play, although still not the definitive version.

In this sequel, Billy and Jimmy Lee returning to exact revenge upon the killers of Billy's girlfriend, Marian. The game sports better graphics, more weapons, and much smoother animations than PC version of Double Dragon. Using the grenades is especially fun, although you have to be quick since it doesn’t flash before detonating ;) Inexplicably, you cannot jump or kick when holding a weapon .. maybe an oversight on Binary Design’s part. The control scheme is much better than the first conversion, although it’s confusing because pressing the same key will execute different moves depending on the direction you are facing.

Overall, Double Dragon II is probably the best PC conversion of all three Double Dragon games. I’d still maintain that River City Ransom is ten times better than three games combined, though, but your mileage may vary ;)

MASTERSYSTEM4THEWIN dont act like ET caused the crash, a lack of QC and a flood of shit games caused the crash. You can just as easily blame the atari Pac man port or any other piece of shit game that came out for the 2600 before 83

Pink Floyd, you're totally wrong. The nintendo version of Double Dragon 1 was absolute crap.

The Sega Master System version was several magnitudes better and, like the arcade game, you could play BOTH players at the same time.

On the nintendo, you could only play as 1 player at a time which was made it a clown of a port.

With Double Dragon II and Double Dragon III, Nintendo got it right with both of those. But you pretending that double dragon 1 for the nes was anything but junk is tantamount to trolling.

The only game worse than DD1 is probably Bible Adventures or Action 52.

E.T. caused the video crash of 1983, and if not for Sega and System16 arcade systems, it might have caused a video game crash in 1988.

That said, the DOS version of Double Dragon II was decent. It played on my 6mhz 286 just fine and close enough to the arcade game play for it to be amazing back in the day.

This game looked really good on the PC. Not too far from the arcade. But slow and sluggish, full of bugs, and terrible controls very much like the Sega Genesis version. like the first Double Dragon Nintendo wins all for having the best version even though it is very different.
