It’s pretty clear that Double Dragon IV isn’t going to set the world on fire. It’s a game designed primarily to stoke nostalgia and expand the limits of what you could expect from an authenticly retro Double Dragon experience. This isn’t going to be a game that you spend weeks mastering, but that’s a complaint that you could lobby against all but the most well-designed entries in the beat ’em up genre.
The overall package is hurt by occasionally clunky controls, iffy platforming and a lack of online play. Longtime fans of the series will be right at home with the overall package, though. The core gameplay is rock-solid and is well-worth checking out for longtime fans, while newcomers will find out exactly why the franchise has been so beloved over the years.
Double Dragon IV isn’t a good game in a modern sense, but it certainly is an honest trip back in time that will, if nothing else, offer a heavy dose of nostalgia for anyone with a fondness for the Lee Brothers' 8-bit adventures. Frankly, it mimics its source material perfectly. It’s a worthwhile historical artifact if nothing else, but absolutely cannot match the vast improvements in gaming since those early days.
