When he first arrives in Alfheim he is able to take on several more experienced players extremely easily, despite barely knowing the basics of the game.
Combat in ALO is extremely similar to SAO. It'd be like being a badass in Dark Souls because you were awesome at Demon's Souls. Sure, there are a few differences, but for the most part, it's plausible. Also helps that he started out with extremely high skills because it more or less imports his SAO character stats.

I just figured the DW unlock was because he leveled so far using a single blade with no off hand item. Since no other front line player would gimp themselves that way, he alone unlocked it. Dunno if that's actually the case or not, but it didn't seem to untoward with me.

Rather, it didn't seem odd in the context of Japanese MMOs I have played. They don't seem to adopt the Western notion that all classes should cap out at the same balanced level. It's always seemed to be the case that classes that take a lot more skill/effort, or who cost more money, generally perform better. So Kirito unlocking Dual Wielding just struck me as something like that. Of course, I have no basis, so it could be something stupid.
I think the explanation has something to do with his reaction speeds being the highest in the game. There was more discussion about it in the previous season's anime thread.
