Girlfriends, more trouble than they're worth! Take the case of William Lee, whose girlfriend Marion keeps getting kidnapped by bad guys and mutant meanies. Every time she gets kidnapped Billy and his brother Jimmy have to rescue her. And maahn is it difficult!

I am of course talking about Double Dragon 2. The second in the Double Dragon series of games, Double Dragon 2 has you beating your way through a thong of thugs, using a variety of moves, kicks and punches, to rescue poor Billy's bird.

The original Double Dragon was a pile of old rubbish but this one is much, much better. Unfortunately the graphics and action are really nowhere near as good as the latest game DD III (which is reviewed on pages 48-49), but it's still a really good fighting bash which comes into it's own in two player mode.

Fight it out with the Black Shadow warriors using fists, feet, chains and swords in a battle to the death. Be prepared to spend some time with this game!

GARTH: Hey, you're right about girlfriends. Mine has just left me for some XR3i driving dude! Good job I've got DD2 to have a blast with!

Not quite in the same class as Double Dragon 3 but miles ahead of the first game. This is a fun beat 'em up that can get a little difficult at times.
