Double Dragon II: Wander Of The Dragons

Auracore MediaWorks
8 May 2013
  • Summary: This isn’t homage, it’s a massacre
  • Pros: Catchy soundtrack, most of the time; a dozen achievements to get for the extremely dedicated or masochistic; graphics during cut scenes are well done; can play as Marian briefly; game is fairly generous with health packs and extra continues; a couple of modes of play beyond the Story mode that suck slightly less; it’s a two player game for those who wish to alienate friends
  • Cons: Sluggish and irresponsive controls; graphics are an eyesore with ugly character models and uninspired backgrounds; monotonous gameplay revolves around punching and kicking; AI can combo break; game slows down when there are a handful of characters on the screen; numerous clipping and graphical glitches; narrator cannot read own script; tutorial is lackluster and misleading; poor translation throughout; stupid subtitle; not a remake of the NES classic

Terrible remake of a mindlessly violent 1980s arcade game.

Common Sense Media
14 April 2013
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons is a side-scrolling beat 'em up game in which players control a revenge-fueled, muscle-bound martial artist who punches and kicks a seemingly endless stream of gangsters. It's neither bloody nor gory, but the violence is constant and enemies often scream and yell when struck. Plus, the game's female characters are highly sexualized and wear revealing outfits that expose deep, bobbing cleavage.

Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons

oxmonline.com
12 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Double Dragon Neon (OXM Score: 6.5) may have had problems, but it still had soul. That should be a constant — this series developed a huge following due to its charm — but XBLA’s Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons pulls the beating heart out of Technōs’ 1988 coin-op Double Dragon II: The Revenge and stomps on it until it barely resembles the sequel we once loved.
  • Pros: + Occasionally inoffensive; you don’t have to start over after running out of continues.
  • Cons: ? How can you make a beat-’em-up without the ability to throw your opponent?

Shame Of The Dragons

Game Informer
6 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Concept: Reinterpret the arcade version of Double Dragon II in the worst way possible Graphics: Character models range from bland to gross and many of the environment textures are N64-caliber Sound: Crappily remixed tunes from the original soundtrack join new and terrible music Playability: I’ve never seen a brawler with worse controls Entertainment: An untouched emulation of the arcade game would have been far superior in this case Replay: Low

  • Excerpt: Resulta difícil de explicar lo que ha sucedido con Double Dragon 2: Wander of the Dragons . ¿Quién no disfrutaba con las series Double Dragon en los recreativos durante la época dorada de los beat-'em-up ? No somos pocos los que hemos pasado horas y horas repartiendo mamporros con Billy y Jimmy en nuestros tiempos mozos, así que la revisión del clásico se esperaba con ganas.

Il senso ultimo di Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons

it.ign.com
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons è ottima materia per noi che scriviamo di videogiochi, purtroppo non lo è per chiunque, i videogiochi, se li voglia “solo” godere con un controller tra le mani. Tre anni di sviluppo, apparizioni e scomparse degne del mago di Segrate (un’interpretazione di rara efficacia firmata da un Abatantuono d’epoca) e un risultato finale che provoca un misto di rabbia e depressione.

Test : Double Dragon II - Wander of the Dragons

Gamekult.com
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Avec Double Dragon II : Wander of the Dragons , c'est Double Dragon II qu'on assassine. Encore plus inintéressant que celui de Karateka paru l'an dernier, ce remake proposé à 800 points (presque 10 euros) n'a clairement rien pour lui et fait simplement honte à son modèle. A la rue sur les plans techniques et graphiques, handicapé par une bande son redondante, un gameplay à la ramasse, des collisions mal gérées et un level design plus que basique, le titre de Gravity est...
  • Pros: On peut partager la souffrance avec un(e) ami(e)
  • Cons: Tutoriel inutile et obligatoire, Gameplay à la ramasse, Mise en scène ringarde, Pas de mode coop en ligne, Tellement laid que t'en chiales, Bande son générique, Festival de bugs et ralentissements, Gestion des collisions catastrophique, Modes Versus et Survie sans aucun intérêt, Des choix de game design incompréhensibles, C'est Double Dragon II qu'on assassine

Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons

24 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Alkuperäinen Double Dragon oli 1980-luvulla siisti ja hyvin suunniteltu beat 'em up, johon oli ympätty paljon hyvää musiikkia ja muotoiltu menevä juoni pukareiden välille. Myös jatko-osa oli pätevä, mutta sitten sarja lipesi alamäkeen. Ja pahasti. Hiljattain julkaistulla Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons illa tavoitetaan viimein jonkinlainen pohja sekä sarjalle itselleen että pelialalle ylipäätään, koska tätä pahemmin muinaista sarjaa ei enää voi raiskata.
  • Pros: Samasta genrestä löytyy parempia pelejä
  • Cons: Aivan kaikki, pelissä ei ole mitään mikä hyvittäisi kurjuuden

Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons

Gamereactor
23 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Jag måste säga att jag verkligen lider med Double Dragon -spelen. Originalet från 80-talet var coolt, proppat med bra musik, hade skön design och lyckades till och med leverera en bra twist i storyn mellan alla smockor. Uppföljaren blev också bra, men därefter gick det utför. Rejält.
  • Pros: Det finns andra bra spel i samma genre
  • Cons: Absolut allt, det finns inga som helst förmildrande omständigheter för denna vidriga sörja
