Double Dragon (NES®, 1-2 players, Rated Everyone 10+ — Mild Violence, 500 Wii Points): Double Dragon begins with Billy Lee’s girlfriend, Marian, being kidnapped by a group called the Black Warriors. They demand to know the secrets of Billy’s martial-arts style in exchange for his girlfriend. However, Billy won’t stand for these underhanded tactics and decides to rescue her himself. Help him fight through city streets, buildings, jungles, temples and various other locations in a quest to find his girl. He’ll gain experience by using different fighting techniques to obtain more hearts, which will unlock more powerful techniques to use against his enemies. Keep an eye out for crates, boulders, whips, bats, knives and even dynamite along the way, as Billy can also use them to annihilate opponents. Armed with his mysterious and powerful martial arts, help Billy pummel his way through an array of goons, gang members and other Black Warrior scum to free Marian from their clutches.
For all you Wii haters out there, I decided to incorporate more material on Nintendo’s Wii to tick you off. Nintendo’s VC release is giving us only one this week, but it’s a classic. Believe it or not, this game always gave me trouble going up the ladder. It’s like the game was off kilter just a hair where to go up you had to stand left of the ladder. But then again, maybe my NES wasn’t blown into properly. Forget my ramblings, I never beat this one game so the excuses are pouring out like butter in a microwaved potato.
