  • Summary: Known for the beautiful aesthetics and renowned gameplay of A Boy and his Blob, Contra 4, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and BloodRayne: Betrayal, WayForward is applying its focused attention to detail on Double Dragon: Neon. Taking place in a hyper-saturated omniverse, players beat up baddies across earth and beyond against the Black Dragon Clan's most nefarious leader yet-- the supernatural scourge Skullmageddon. You could go it alone, but why wouldn't you want to grab a buddy and take your game to the next level with drop-in, drop-out online 'Bro-Op'?! Expand

    I fear that a lot of people will give up on Double Dragon: Neon too early, either because it “isn’t real Double Dragon” or because of the “clunky controls.” I encourage you to stick with it, because Neon truly is one of the best games in the genre from any decade. It’s got humor, visual flair, excellent gameplay, and a brilliant soundtrack.

    It’s never serious and it never tries to modernize when it doesn’t need to, and that’s what makes Double Dragon Neon such an excellent example of a reborn classic.

    Growing up in the 80's, this is exactly how I thought games would be in the future.
    This is Double Dragon but done very, very tongue in
    cheek. It plays heavily on 80's nostalgia, but it doesn't rely on it to deliver a fun, side scrolling brawler.
    It also adds modern elements to the original formula like the ability to pick up skills and enhance stances, each with a pseudo 80's soundtrack to company it!

    You don't need to be an 80's kid to enjoy this, but it helps! A great way to scratch that itch for yesteryear awesomeness.

    This game was something special. The visuals are very charming, the game play is simple but really fun, and the music couldn’t fit more perfectly with the theme and mood of the levels. This game play is a little slow and clunky at first, but it gets rewarding and fluid once you get the hang of the combat mechanics. If you wanna beat up girlfriend stealing jerks, a pun spouting space lich super villain, and even a helicopter that deliberately tries to chop you up with its propellers, you need to buy this game.

    Gameplay is slow with bizarre collision detection, graphically it's Saturday-morning-toon bad and not very good animated. Original coin-op games were not perfect, but they were - and still are - fun to play. Neon is not very fun and I'm pushing myself to squeeze the money I spent out of it to justify the purchase. At least it got a nice soundtrack. Expand
