    Soooo Intense!!!!!

  • September 22, 2014 at 12:54 am

    If I remember correctly, the only difference between the difficulty levels is just the amount of levels you get to play, not the enemy health or general toughness of the game.

      Yeah I don’t think it was that much harder if it was.

      • September 23, 2014 at 1:16 pm

        Yeah once you know all the maneuvers it’s pretty easy to beat. I can do it in under 15 minutes.

    Would love to see a James and Mike play GHOSTS AND GOBLINS !

  • September 22, 2014 at 4:43 am

    just look at this way James.. it could be worse…at least you didn’t have to play Double Dragon 3 again

  • September 22, 2014 at 6:26 am

    I remember when you had to play games on the hardest difficulty in order to beat them. Now, the hardest difficulties are paid dlc.

  • Don Skiver

    Well…shit. That was anticlimactic. Still though, I’m very impressed that you guys managed to beat this game. I’m looking forward to the next adventure you guys go on! And I’m *really* looking forward to Monster Madness and Halloween themed AVGN! Been looking forward to it all year in fact! I can’t wait! Best time of the year!! 😀

  • September 22, 2014 at 7:41 am

    I beat that game on master level difficulty with the 3ds and using save states because the platforming is hard to jump and easily lose your lives. Good game but holy crap its hard to get through.

    Watching these videos kinda reminds me of watching football. It gets very intense and people are cheering on the players. Well, video games are much more entertaining and I always look forward to watching you and Mike every week. The ending was hilarious. How dare you pissed James off, Game?

  • September 22, 2014 at 8:15 am

    You guys should really finish this game. Where you left off, you actually have completed all the tricky platforming and there is literally one last enemy. Not to spoil, but the ending, the REAL ending to this game, is worth the effort. Considering the games I’ve seen you guys beat, the last boss in Double Dragon II should really not take too much for you to beat.

    Funny that you used the more revealing cover than the one used for the NES.

  • -_-

    September 22, 2014 at 9:20 am

    You guys need to start doing Mega Drive
    Streets of Rage, Hyperstone heist … and the rest

  • Quiltface

    September 22, 2014 at 10:01 am

    Play the game on 2 player b, clear the first screen and then just kill player 2… all his lives will transfer to you.

  • sutekh22

    There is a final challenge for James to complete! We want to see James conquer the……….whatever the heck that guy was. Possibly using the two player “kill your partner and take his lives” trick if necessary.

    That is incredible that you even beat it. You guys kick ass, I’ve never been able to do that

  • September 22, 2014 at 12:01 pm

    Now that I see the last levels and ending of this game at 40 years old. I can’t believe I beat this game on master level. I probably couldn’t do it now if I tried my best lol.

  • September 22, 2014 at 1:11 pm

    You guys finally beat a game – sort of… Congrats!

  • Splatterfreak

    September 22, 2014 at 1:32 pm

    Please read the instructions before playing! Not only because you can learn to show off some awesome moves and punches but also because a player who ran out of lives can get a life from the other player if he has one left.

    Of course you have to finish the game on Supreme Master level. It’s not that hard but the end boss is kinda challenging and you even get an extra ending.

    Best James & Mike Mondays Episode ever!

  • September 22, 2014 at 2:22 pm

    James and Mike, you guys should’ve invited me over.I would beat this game on the Master level no problem!!! I played this game so much when I was a kid, and I still remember how it felt being on the last stage to beat the final boss. It’s an epic ending as well!

  • greedo

    September 22, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    Thanks for doing this game again, guys! I really appreciate it. Takes me back quite a ways! BTW, I had totally forgotten about the Supreme Master thing. The boss at the end is tough, but nothing you can’t handle. Thing I loved about it was that while you had difficulty pulling off some of the grab moves with him, when you were able to pull it off, it felt good! And it really meant more because you were able to give him the business!

    Anyway, it is worth doing the game again for that reason. The final cut scene makes it all worthwhile!

    U guys should try wizards & warriors from December 1987 classic.

  • oscuro

    September 22, 2014 at 6:38 pm

    Yeah the final boss is actually really cool and the last hit is in slow motion. How many nes games had slow motion killing blows? Double dragon 2 was one of my favorite nes games I could beat it blindfolded 20 years later

    NICE! Damn that was intense!

    Great video, makes me want to play the game now and try my luck with those jumping levels.

  • Paul Lovaas

    I remember using something with turbo. Then, just hold the A and B buttons and you keep doing knee attack. That’s how I was able to see the ending.

    Transfer Lives Trick
    In 2-player mode B, Billy and Jimmy will transfer lives between themselves if they kill each other. This can be useful when either of them is low on life.

    On the game over screen for the indicated levels, press the following:

    Levels 1 to 3 – On Controller 1, press UP, RIGHT, DOWN, LEFT, A, B

    Levels 4 to 6 – On Controller 1, press UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, B, A, A

    Levels 7 to 9 – On Controller 2, press A, A, B, B, DOWN, UP, RIGHT, LEFT

    You have to have it on supreme master to fight the 2nd final boss. You have to beat the mirror mode guy, then after him the final boss comes.

  • September 23, 2014 at 4:14 pm

    Well done, James!
    Now do Kabuki Quantum Fighter, please! 😉

  • Vargus Saars

    September 23, 2014 at 4:39 pm

    Well done guys and yeah you do have to beat it on supreme master to actually beat the game its fun but frickin’ hard and I’m not going to spoil it at all.

    But heres a tip play 2player mode B and use the one of the players (1player works I know that much) to just beat up the other right at the start, this will give the surviving player all the other ones lives, I know its a little like cheating but when you consider all the enemies in master difficulty are as powerful as those last few enemies you beat up in that play through I say the game is cheating a little too.

    GooD Luck -have fun and please record it for us to watch you XD!

    holy shit I remember doing the master level and real final boss as a kid. I also remember beating Double Dragon 3 all the time for fun because I knew the secrets to beating the bosses easily. Like using the claws on that ninja guy to like 1 shot him and like for the final boss doing wall jumps with him to kill the last boss. You guys have beaten games that I have never been able to do but when I see these dd 2 and 3 vids I wonder why it’s so hard for you.

  • September 26, 2014 at 12:54 am

    Hey use the game genie to fight on master just to see the final boss because then you can see what the ending credits say.

  • gluserty

    I agree with James here, in that the Double Dragon games shouldn’t be about platforming. A fun viewing, but what a jip ending for all the work these two put into playing through.

  • October 7, 2014 at 8:43 pm

    For your own peace of mind, Mike and James, here you can see the entire game being done by a couple of pros, and that last level: Speeddemos Archive Double Dragon II

    Enjoy, I did 🙂

  • November 5, 2014 at 6:28 pm

    I used to beat the shit out of this game back in the day (the 90s) with my stepdad, and no you did not finish the game, the final boss is a motherfucker. It took you that long?!?

  • Aaron1375

    I hated games that did that win the game on a higher difficulty to get the best ending shit.
