Double Dragon: Neon

 

Introduced to arcades in 1987, Double Dragon quickly became the standard for beat ‘em ups everywhere. Pretty soon there were arcade games popping up left and right with identical siblings pounding hundreds of samey street thugs that had absconded off...

Double Dragon: Neon is fun in small doses, but the lack of online play greatly diminishes its appeal along with its strict adherence to the same annoying aspects of the genre that have since been done away with. Mechanically, it lacks much of the...

Don't brofist me, bro.

Music is badass; Graphically sharp; Okay $10 price

Grinding is necessary and boring; Voice acting is not even fun-cheesy; Fighting gets old quickly

It's the grinding that honestly made this game more of a chore for me than an enjoyment. If you need that old-school fix, there are better ways to do it on both PSN and XBLA, and you can just download and listen to the songs through your iPod or...

Dude…Double Dragon. Even if you're not old enough to have fond fuzzy memories of sauntering along with a buddy, beating on relentless low-IQ baddies and having a blast, you've at least heard of the name. Thankfully, in an age where the concept of a...

Double Dragon Neon revitalizes the classic franchise, but a few missteps derail the silly fun.

Goofy atmosphere with amusing jokes ; Defensive mechanics reward skilled players ; Passive and special abilities allow for smart customization

Tedious grinding in harder difficulties ; No online co-op

Double Dragon Neon is a good update to the arcade classic precisely because it's not handcuffed to what the original started. By shifting the tone from serious to crazy and making the combat system rewarding for the most dedicated players, this is a...

Double Dragon: Neon Review

 

Double Dragon is back by way of Way Forward, but how well has the beat-'em-up classic aged after 25 years?

Let’s address a sad truth nobody wants to hear: The brawler genre is not very good anymore. The beat-‘em-up was built on the back of arcade game design; difficulty didn’t come by design, but by consequence of clunky mechanics meant to scam kids out of...

When I first saw Double Dragon: Neon in previews, I really wasn't too excited about it. I enjoyed the original DD arcade games, but the NES entries didn't do much for me, and the usage of the name in a crappy movie and show many moons ago didn't...

The soundtrack is outstanding and is basically a love letter to both gaming and the '80s as a whole. Level 2's music is '80s cheese to the max with some great early '90s totally radical tunes mixed into the soundtrack as well. There are 45 songs in the...

The bottom line is that Double Dragon Neon does more wrong than right. The short length, frustratingly outdated gameplay mechanics and annoying characters greatly deter an otherwise decent 3D recreation of a classic arcade game. However, if you are...

Billy and Jimmy return in this hard-as-nails brawler. Does the nostalgia carry it through?

Game is drenched in nostalgia ; Co-op is fun ; Graphics look bright and colorful

Nostalgia is lost on some ; Archaic checkpoint system ; Getting caught in animations ; Difficulty hurdles

Double Dragon Neon PS3 Review

 

In its genre, Double Dragon is one of the most influential games. As one of the earliest examples, it was one of the pioneers of co-op games, and the first game in its genre to have such a feature. With all the latter said, Double Dragon's legend is...

Double Dragon Neon marks the return of one of gaming’s legends – a successful return it is as well. The mix tapes add a little something extra to the old formula and the enhanced cooperative play is sure to be a lot of fun for many, and is undoubtedly...
