The Dojo has a review of it,

The short version is, it's pretty rubbish.

I will say that I quite liked Billy Lee's new character design (this is the only game where we see him wear a headband), particularly the portrait from the intro, before each level.

It's also an interesting idea, that you have to rescue Jimmy, from being mind-controlled into being the Shadow Boss-like final boss (yeah, the story says you're out to avenge his death, but that turns out to not be true).

Does that justify everything else about this game? I doubt it.

To me the 1992 Sega Game Gear Double Dragon was the strangest of all the DD games. (and yes, that includes "DDV", Neo Geo Double Dragon, PC Engine "DD2" and the Game Boy DD games)
The graphics look great, reminding me of Tecmo's 1988 Ninja Gaiden arcade game meets Konami's 1989 arcade game Crime Fighters. The stages are pretty interesting.
A whole level inside a 90's Virgin Record store? I can dig it. The rural country level near the end reminded me of stage 3 from the arcade Double Dragon 2. And it almost
feels that the new Double Dragon 4 borrowed from the final stage of Game Gear Double Dragon. The HR Giger-esque alien hive final stage is so random, but it reminds me
of the early 90s PC Game "Dark Seed"(where you find a Giger-esque alien world underneath a mansion) The stage also reminds me of that Kunio sequel from 1992 on the
Super Famicom "Shin Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-kun".

But the play mechanics...I remember buying it when it came out and being so frustrated by how it played, and just gave up. Even years later playing a game genie cheat heavy
ROM of it on a game gear emulator was frustrating. Still, for a diehard DD fan, I recommend playing it just for the experience of it.
I'd love to see an interview with the production team behind the GG DD game. Like...what were they thinking? Were they given instruction to make
a strange game that had nothing to do with the 1987 original despite using the Tradwest NES DD boxart for the cover?
