2.0 out of 5 stars Synopsis: A very difficult video game to play May 31, 2002
Platform for Display:Nintendo NES
That's right, folks! This is another beat-up-the-bad-guys-and-save-the-girl video game from the makers of. . . actually Technos made this game. I know next to nothing about Technos. Double Dragon is a game of three distinct trigger actions: jumping, punching, and kicking; and seeing as how the standard NES controller has only two trigger buttons, Tehcnos decided in part 3 (as with the previous games) to make jumping accessible by through pressing the both the punch and kick buttons simultaneously (there is lenience so both buttons do not need to be pressed at the exact same time). From a jump, you can perform one of three attacks as Billy or Jimmy: cyclone spin-kick (A or B), arial kick (left or right and B), or monkey-flip your opponent (left or right and A). When monkey-flipping your opponent, you somersaut over your opponent, grab his/her head or hair, and toss him/her through the air. This is especially fun when fighting on ledges -- just make sure you don't get too close and fall off, yourself.
On the downside, there are no playable females (which seems to bother only myself). You can still fight against a few female thugs though.
Another hex is the high level of difficulty that stems from the questionable play-control. For example, the first boss (who somehwat resembles the Jack of Hearts) has a long reach which makes him hard to hit and he often ducks when you try to whack him with your cyclone spin-kick, leaving you open for attack, thanks to a lagging recovery. You also cannot monkey-flip some enemies.
As for Chin and Ranzou, these two have slightly different attack methods from the Double Dragons:
Chin has a diving Kamikaze head-butt which is activated through jumping towards your an enemy and then pressing A.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great classic Game October 7, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo NES|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Dispite what people are saying about the graphics and how long the game is, I personally think it is a good and fun game to play! Compared to how video games are now, I enjoy playing video games from back in the day when things actually made since! If you're a Double Dragon fan, I think you won't get tired of this game in my opinion. Don't hate just because the game is good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Introducing a new idea, but not new action October 18, 2001
Platform for Display:Nintendo NES
Join Billy and Jimmy in a similtaneous brawling on the streets game. This is the same game as ever, just with less graphics. They tried to incorporate a new idea to this game by having Billy and Jimmy on a quest around the world to find Billy's girlfriend Maria. The game gets very old quickly because of how long it is and the lack of enemy variety.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than DD1; not quite as fun as DD2 October 18, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo NES|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Concerning the first three Double Dragon games, most old school gamers tend to agree that Double Dragon 2 was the most playable. It was challenging, but not so hard that you'd want to give up. Also, DD2 had the best graphics of the original trilogy.

I say that Double Dragon 3 is more fun and has better graphics than DD1. The graphics are really not debatable. As far as difficulty goes, however, I still say that DD3 is a little more balanced than DD1, even when it comes to the final level.

After over 20 years, I still say that Machine Gun Willy at the end of DD1 ruined the whole game. DD3 isn't like that. Yes, I admit that level 5--Egypt--of this game is very difficult, but you should have three lives by the time you get there. And if you save your nunchakus and iron claw until the final boss, things should not be too difficult at that point. Fighting the final boss takes strategy and timing, similar to the ghost Billy Lee on DD2. However, it isn't some random luck fight like Willy on DD1.

This is overall the most fun Double Dragon Game out of the 3. With more characters and awesome fighting moves, this game tops them all! Full of non stop action and adventure, I highly recommend this game to the Double Dragon fan!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the previous entries May 11, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo NES
Many people were surprised to see Double Dragon III on the NES; that's because it was based on the arcade version few people knew about. In 1990, Acclaim Entertainment published this arcade port following the successful previous entry of the series. Like the games before it, they were changes made to enhance the game but instead, it turned to be not as good and it was the weakest of the NES games.

The story went something like this: Billy and Jimmy opened up their dojo and taught many students their fighting style until one day, a mysterious group ambushed everyone. Their students were killed and Marion disappeared. Not knowing what to do, the brothers were approached by a fortune teller who told them they needed to collect sacred stones in order to get Marion and offered to guide them across the world. Like DD II, the game opens up with the choice of playing the single player mode or the two player co-op mode (followed by an additional two modes.) From here on, you must go through five stages that span the world: USA, China, Japan, Italy and Egypt. You can punch, kick, jump kick and use your special moves to fight off enemies and boss characters. Along the way, you can pick up weapons found on the ground and after beating the boss characters in China and Japan, they join you on your quest. This time around, each character in your group has one life each so when one of them dies, another person takes over until you run out of people and the game ends. Like the previous two Double Dragon games, you cannot earn extra lives and there are no passwords and no continues to use.

The PROS: It looks and plays good and the music is pretty decent.
