--From the SNES Double Dragon 4: Super Double Dragon instruction manual.
Double Dragon 4: Super Double Dragon is a very entertaining game. I like the improvements over its predecessors. The best improvement, in my opinion, is the ability to catch a punch and throw the opponent by the arm. Another great improvement was the sounds and music. The music was actually catchy this time and the sound effects sounded much more real. The graphics looked a lot better, of course, because of the capabilities of the SNES. On the down side, it stuck to one of it's old corny story-lines. That was the only bad thing about it. It's a great game, and if you like the Double Dragon series, give this episode a try!
Find and rescue Marian from the Back Shadow Warriors.
A couple of new moves in this update. You have a block button, so it's not just a contest of who can get the most swings in first. If you hit the block button at the right time he will catch the punch, then when you push the attack button he will throw the foe.
