Double Dragon V

Double Dragon V
GenreBeat em Up
DeveloperLeland Interactive
Reviewed byndial
Double Dragon V: The Shadow Falls, is an American sequel to Technos Japan's Double Dragon series. It is a one-on-one fighting game instead of a side-scrolling beat 'em up, as all the rest DDs are! The game was released only for the Super NES, the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis and the Atari Jaguar home consoles.
In this game, Jimmy and Billy (the two brothers and main characters from the series), are participating in a martial arts fighting tournament and they must use their skills and powers to defeat each and every opponent. Unlike the previous DD games that were following the beat 'em up style, Double Dragon V: Shadow Falls is a Street Fighter II style fighting game and it's based on the animated Double Dragon TV series. The fighting roster consists of twelve different characters. There are ten readily available fighters (the two "Double Dragons" and eight Shadow Warriors) plus two end bosses. Each character has a variety of special moves as well as some finishing moves called "Overkills". In case of an Overkill, the loser has his own unique death animation when defeated by a certain type of attack. Although its nice visuals, the game's controls are not very accurate or responsive, making each fight quite frustrating and, combined with its level of difficulty, pretty tough.

Double Dragon V offers some colorful visuals though I'd expect some more detail on the backgrounds. The fighting moves list is simple so each character's animation is not the richest out there. On the other hand, the game's sound is cool, featuring in-game music tunes and several sampled (as expected) fighting sound effects.
