    howdy folks. Recently I started playing Revenge of the Sith on my DS and it was pretty damn awesome. I really want to play other DS games that play like that but possibly better! Anyone have any ideas, I've been searching IGN for ages! [​IMG]

    finished both [​IMG] and yeh I know it was a rip off, but it was a GOOD rip off [​IMG] and castlevania was more of an adventure game, I really want the double dragon style games!

    Sadly Revenge of the Sith is like the best one currently on the ds of that genre(even if it was a ripoff).
    Your best choice would be emulators (Snes got a few good ones, knights of the round table, final fight series etc).

    Draglade is a decent beat-em up, which is probably a cousin to this genre.

    Second that, awesome game! The first one (arcade version) was actually terrible playing it again lately. Legend of Kage 2 should be out in English later this year but the Japanese one should be easy enough to play.

    Ninja Gaiden DS is a pure slasher, a bit too short though.
    Bleach: The Blade of Fate could count too (well if RotS is a slasher than so is that).
    Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble, not a slasher but like RotS is a scrolling beat-em-up.
    TMNT, GBA version, ok its not DS but is kinda like a slasher if you play Leonardo and its a game that can't be missed.

    I liked Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, sure it was the same as the GBA version but with space bits but I thought it was a solid fighter.

    Yeah the original games were great. I'm hoping for a return to form for the series.

    Draglade was friggin' AWESOME, large points.

    Legend of Kage I haven't tried, looks friggin' awesome. (Only Japanese? :[)

    I'm loving how these are all 2D Sidescrollers, cause it's exactly what I was looking for :3

    Gauntlet isn't out yet for the DS, it's scheduled some time not too soon as well :S
