Alright, so the first Double Dragon game on the NES wasn't that good. That doesn't mean that it can't redeem itself, because with sequels, comes some inevitable improvements! Enter Double Dragon 2, a game that improves on some things, but doesn't quite fix some of the bullshit from the first game. So what's improved and what is consistent? Let's find out!
Story: The streets are constantly filling up with gangs, though two brave warriors, Billy and Jimmy Lee, are quick to challenge and kick them out of town. Unfortunately, one gang decided to challenge them to a fight, but instead of politely asking, they kidnap Billy's girlfriend, and now they have to get her back by going through this gang. This time, the story is told through a few shots of text describing the events, as opposed to a gang member punching a woman in the stomach and heading away, so it's told a bit better this time around, and the backstory is a nice little addition, so thumbs up there.
