Out Today: Double Dragon II
Posted by Ken Barnes
Rebooted, but far enough?
Friday's up, and Xbox Live Arcade is getting a new title today in the form of Double Dragon II: Wander of The Dragons. We've got a trailer from the game below, but this is all dependant on you not being gamed-out by the excellent BattleBlock Theater that launched a couple of days ago, of course.
Double Dragon II: Wander of The Dragons (800 MSP)
Don't be fooled, this is no high-quality Double Dragon: NEON-style affair. Rather, it appears that this is a strange 2D/2.5D title that seems to look somewhat like a Saturn game. Gameplay is the key though, and if this gets all of the key elements of the Double Dragon franchise down, then it could do alright. From what we've seen and played though, it comes up somewhat short. As far as we're aware, this was due to be released at 1200MSP, but has been dropped in price in the week before release. Take that as you will.
Are any of you taking the plunge and picking this up? If you don't already have Double Dragon NEON, then we implore you to pick that up first. Seriously. Do it now.
