Double Dragon is one of the greatest beat-em-up franchises of all time and Double Dragon 1 and 2 are fantastic games, with the first being a true masterpiece and a real gaming classic.

The one downfall to all of the games in the series is a lack of a true storyline. The one nice thing that can be said about Double Dragon 3 is that it has a detailed story (and a pretty engaging one at that).

Unfortunately, that is the only bright spot in what is otherwise a pretty lackluster effort. Developed by East Technology and released in 1990 by Technos, Double Dragon 3: The Rosetta Stone boasts up to 3 player simultaneous action. In addition to the characters Jimmy Lee and Billy from the other Double Dragon games, DD 3: The Rosetta Stone adds a third character named Sonny (essentially a yellow-clad player sprite identical to the 2 Lee brothers in appearance). – Read the rest of the article here from Classic Console Magazine (courtesy of Old School Gamer)!
