    I thought from the video i saw it looked more like Final fight

    Would have preferred a closer remake of original as shovelled tons of 10p's into it

    If the knee to the face move has been left out, then its an epic fail and the developer should be hunted and shot

    Still remember how to clock the original I think...

    Elbows all the way then the final boss was flying kicks

    Got this free on PS+ months ago - played it twice IIRC. Complete rubbish IMO but that might be because the original Double Dragon was my fave arcade game by miles.

    Am I missing something or is there no option to buy and no price, but it says it's unlocking in an hour?

    I caned the tits of this game down the arcade as a lad, I may give this a go if it drops during the next sales.

    I'm more inclined to pick up Shank 2 before this though, Shank was great fun, especially with a mate.

    You could elbow the whole game to completion. Worst was going to elbow and one of the buttons was dodgy resulting in you jumping only

    I just remembered one of my 2 nicknames comes from this game. We were away with the school when I was in comp and one of my mates at the time was playing it on an arcade box, got to an end of level boss, this big massive monster bear thing and he said "Oh look, it's James!". Everyone laughed and started calling me bear, it stuck with new college friends, then new uni friends. I've always found it quite funny though :laugh:

    Ah Final Fight, cracking game and have fond memories of that, Double Dragon and Golden Axe. This is decent though for £6.99, currently up to stage 5.

    It would probably quite difficult to get my knee up that high these days, I'm not quite as flexible as I used to be, but yes I probably could.

    LOL, doh, silly me and I was just about to see if I could, not that my next door neighbour would have been best pleased ..

    In the game, no, not that I've seen, just lots of punching, spinning kicks, throws and flying kicks so far. Although there are several special moves I still need to figure out how to trigger.

    I noticed last night that you had put 4 hours into the game. I am yet to buy it as I want to get Borderlands 2 out of my system first as I know I wont be playing anything until I am finished with that. :)

    Well, it sat for three of those hours on pause, that was one hell of a toilet trip I can tell you.

    It should cost next to nothing in 2016 I imagine.

    Thinking about double dragon recently I was wondering what other side scrolling games of this ilk were worth a purchase? I like the look of shank and castle crashers.

    Castle Crashers is great fun, especially multiplayer!

    If you can find a copy, Streets of Rage Remake is quite special. Unfortunately Sega shut it down just after it was finally finished... bar stewards! Though it still seems to be quietly living on.
