    The presentation is faultless. [Issue#193, p.102]

    Yeah, these are the same games that were released oh-so long ago so there won’t be a million surprises, but Final Fight and Magic Sword are fun to play, the co-op integration is impressive, and there are plenty of reasons to keep playing them over and over again.
  3. Double Impact is a good package, featuring two of the greatest co-op arcade games of all time. Final Fight is really showing its age now, but it's been twenty years, so that may have been inevitable. Magic Sword has aged a great deal more gracefully, and of the two, it's the one that I've been going back to.

    This is for now the ultimate version of the 90s classic. Those who played the original arcade would like to remember those moments, and maybe those who lost them want to discover this legend.
  5. While a must-purchase for fans of the ‘Final Fight’ series, newcomers might balk at its higher than average price.
  6. If you’re a fan of fighting games then Final Fight: Double Impact is sure to make a positive impact on you.
  7. 50
    Final Fight: Double Impact is fun for those with nostalgic feelings towards the arcade halls. Otherwise this game will feel boring and outdated.

    Final Fight and Magic Sword were two of the best arcade video games ever, and this remastered version is no less equal to their quality. AmongFinal Fight and Magic Sword were two of the best arcade video games ever, and this remastered version is no less equal to their quality. Among all the new options, playing online is definitely the most interesting one, as it mixes the virtues of the classic games with the blessings of modern video games. Expand
