Watch: Johnny and Ian get doubly disappointed by Double Dragon 4

Some of my earliest and fondest gaming memories revolve around playing the Double Dragon games with my brother.

I vividly remember unwrapping the Spectrum +3 disk version of Double Dragon 2 for Christmas in 1998 for instance, and then a year later we wasted countless hours of our lives on the vastly different NES version of the same game.

That’s why, when Double Dragon 4 was announced late last year, I got a little bit excited. Visually it’s identical to the NES version of Double Dragon 2, with sprites and even graphical glitches lifted straight from the 8-bit era.
