Battletoads & Double Dragon (1993) – Video Game Review

A brilliant game!

A brilliant game!

Ok so back in the early 1990s some of the biggest, ‘B’ level media characters were, ‘Battletoads’ and, ‘Double Dragon’.

Now Double Dragon is still an excellent video game series, even though it has mostly disappeared, but back then, this game series was one of the first, ‘fighter style’ video games for the, ‘Nintendo’, and was so much fun, that a movie would eventually be made in to it!

And then there was the, ‘Battletoads’… Now this series is gone… I hate to say it, but it is true… But this series is similar in basic concept to the, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,’ except that instead of being mutants from ooze… It is about a group of teens that can go back and forth between being, ‘Toads’ as well as being, ‘humans’!

Now both of these series have individual video games that are a lot of fun… But they also have a video game together that totally rocks! Battletoads & Double Dragon (1993)!



Developed by: Rare for the various consoles of the day, (including: Nintendo, Super-Nintendo, Game Boy and the Sega Genesis,) and was an amazing cross-over video game series between the two franchises!

And I have to say the individual video game series, this game rocks, it’s fighting style is awesome, the FX are cool… The only two problems I have to say that really about the only things that I really don’t like about this game… No story, and for some reason, the Graphics kind of really suck!

They don't really make these types of games anymore... It is a shame!

In the end though it is worth trying… Especially if you are a fan of the older video games.
