I prefer Amiga Golden Axe over Megadrive.

- It sounds better much better ( 80% of megadrives games sounds like a angry cat )

- looks better ( plain bad palette, repetitive and ugly colouring on sprites, bad drawing and bad colouring in backgrounds )

- moves better ( Megadrive moves fast but doesnt move smooth, Amiga does )

- plays better, although I admit is a bit easy on Amiga, though Megadrive has the typical console game modes to choose ( modes which I usually avoid like pest ).

Respect DD2, well I simply tend to consider it the only Amiga Double Dragon. I ignore first one and third too,. third more because of the lame original coin-op,.. good conversion though.

The controls/playability is far better in the Mega Drive version. Guess we have a Amiga biased opinion here.
One button control method was the standard in that era,.. dont blame Golden Axe for that.
