Double Dragon II: Wander of The Dragons is a beat-em-up game released for xBox 360 and Xbox Live Arcade and is both based off the Double Dragon franchise and is somewhat of a variant/remake of Double Dragon II: The Revenge, the arcade game.
Why It Sucks
- Very broken and delayed controls.
- Enemy AI can attack you at any moment, leading to them ganging up on you when you're completely defenseless.
- Power punches do the same damage as the regular punches and power kicks just flat-out don't work.
- The one special move that works, the elbow smash, goes wherever it wants.
- Special moves need way too many points to be unlocked and they aren't vital to gameplay in any way, similar to the upgrades in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
- The game forces you not to use the special moves. If you use a special move just one time in the entire game, you get the bad ending.
- Poor story.
- Badly designed character models and very bad animation.
- Uninteresting, monotous gameplay.
- The game has a stamina meter, which limits the attacks.
- Lame final boss.
