    A mode that lets you alternate between control of two heroes by yourself is really intriguing. It requries a lot of strategy, as one character is helpless when he isn't under your influence. It really grew on me. [Oct 2003, p.142]
  2. Beat-em-up fans would do well to try Double Dragon Advance, a well-made and greatly enhanced port of the arcade classic.
  3. Whether you're a longtime arcade beat-'em-up fan or a younger gamer who's new to the genre, Double Dragon Advance is just what you're looking for.

    Better suited for the GBA format than most of the muddy faux-3D titles out there.

    You'll get your butt thrashed the first or second time through, but it'll only take another one or two times to get to the end. After that, well...there's not much else to it. It's great while it lasts, though.

    The original Double Dragon may not be quite as good as you remember, but this adaptation makes up the difference with its major additions and subtle improvements. In a market glutted with lazy Super NES ports, DDA stands out as a bare-knuckle champ.

    The fighting system is as basic and clumsy as it was back in 1987. [Dec 2003, p.75]

It takes everything Out of the many, many incarnations of the Double Dragon franchise on a multitude of platforms, this newest is the best. It takes everything that made the original coin-op so brilliant (visceral sound effects, classic music, brutal moves) and adds to it a slew of new fighting techniques that make it pure heaven to play for brawler fans. I still am discovering new moves and strategies after many play sessions. Oh, and the nunchuks freaking rule. Expand
