Is this XBLA's worst game?

Come marvel at the atrocity that is Double Dragon 2: Wander of the Dragons.

It's not the greatest of accolades, but at least the recently released Double Dragon 2: Wander of the Dragons excels at something, even if that is just being seriously bad. Fumbled onto Xbox Live Arcade a few weeks back, it's a shambling, stuttering mess where the only real interest comes from wondering how exactly it managed to find its way onto the marketplace.

A remake of Technos Japan's 1988 side-scroller, Korean developer Gravity's Double Dragon 2 is likely to destroy any fond memories you have of the original. Ian Higton was brave enough to spend an afternoon in its company, and you can see the results below.
