"Double Dragon is the story of Billy and Jimmy Lee, twin brothers who learned to fight the cold, tough streets of their city. Their expert knowledge of the martial arts, combined with their street-smarts, has made them both formidable fighting machines.
But now Billy is faced with his greatest challenge: his girlfriend, Marian, has been kidnapped by the Black Warriors, the savage street gang of the mysterious Shadow Boss! Using whatever weapons come to hand: knives, whips, bats, rocks, oil drums, even dynamite. Billy must pursue the gang through the slums, factories, and wooded outskirts of the city to reach the hideout for his final confrontation with the Shadow Boss... his brother Jimmy!"
--From the NES Double Dragon instruction manual.
Double Dragon was one of my personal favorites when it came to NES games. I know all of you are saying that it's not that great. Well, to me it was, the graphics weren't that great and the story was a little shy, but all in all it was a really fun game. At the time there wasn't any other game like it. You had a character that was bad to the bone just in and of himself, and you had tons of cool weapons that you could just pick up along the way. I know I spent countless hours playing this game just trying to get to the end to beat my brother's butt.
Kill anyone or anything that gets in your way by beating them down with weapons, fist, or foot.
