Excerpt: 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 one that deserves to live on for years to come, and it was certainly welcome to play a new installment in the series with Double Dragon Neon .
Excerpt: . 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 side-scrolling brawler would be laughed at as a big-budget production, such old-school concepts can still thrive in the downloadable world.
Excerpt: Double Dragon was a pivotal video game franchise years ago, and it embodied all of the ‘80s flair that was so prominent at the time. Decades later, Double Dragon: Neon marks the return of the series, and the return of that same ‘80s style that was so cherished all those years ago.

Summary: What would a magical skeleton want with an ordinary woman? The answer isn't important (and is most likely pretty gross), but the rescue mission that follows this kidnapping sure is fun.

Pros: Goofy atmosphere with amusing jokes, Defensive mechanics reward skilled players, Passive and special abilities allow for smart customization
Cons: Tedious grinding in harder difficulties, No online co-op
Conclusion: Double Dragon Neon is een leuke, klassieke beat ‘em up met een verdedigingsmechanisme dat de game verfrissend houdt. Het is echter geen klassieke Double Dragon, daarvoor wijkt het teveel af. Het zit vol flauwe en dommige humor, en de game neemt zichzelf totaal niet serieus. Als je op zoek bent naar een typische Double Dragon is het misschien geen aanrader, voor alle mensen die gewoon lekker willen knokken des te meer.
Pros: Geen typische Double Dragon, Tof verdedigingsmechanisme, Lekkere muziek
Excerpt: Double Dragon , um clássico que serviu de inspiração para praticamente todas as demais gerações, acaba de receber uma nova versão pelas mãos da WayFoward, empresa responsável por BloodRayne Betrayal e pelo próximo Silent Hill (Book of Memories), de PS Vita. Melhor ainda é quando temos envolvido (mesmo que parcialmente) o designer e criador do game, Yoshihisa Kishimoto.
Cons: Algumas mecânicas alteradas ficaram piores, Falta online
