Yes, it's a side-scrolling beat 'em up but feels absolutely nothing like first two games (moves are different, look is different, gameplay is different. Plus, it's irredeemably abysmal and absolutely no fun to play, unlike the first two. SNES Super Double Dragon should really've been Double Dragon 3.
That game was pure b0llocks. A joke that wasn't funny at all. And they had the cheek to bundle it with the pure brilliance that is Rodland as well.

:lol: The scary thing is, if it HAD came out on the Amiga, been by Team 17 or the Bitmap Brothers and called, I dunno, Future Ninja Warrior, or something you can guarantee there'd be some people still trying to say it was as good as/better than Strider. See the likes of Superfrog, Project X etc.

*Disclaimer- I do love the Amiga, but its baffling how overrated some of its second division cloneware is.*
theres a hell of a lot of truth in those two posts. powerful stuff!
