Battletoads and Double Dragon are two of the NES' best beat-'em-ups, and the two franchises merge surprisingly well in this superb crossover follow-up to Rare's 1991 hit. Five playable characters are now available — Zitz, Rash and Pimple from Battletoads, and Jimmy and Billy from Double Dragon. Each fighter has their own style, yet the gameplay remains consistent no matter whom you choose. The action is definitely more Battletoads than Double Dragon, but Rare does a fine job at connecting the two universes without making it seem forced or arbitrary. The visuals are just as impressive as in the first game, with colorful environments, humorous animation and detailed character movement. ~ Skyler Miller, All Game Guide
