Double Dragon Neon

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Double Dragon was a shocking game in its day (in the year of our Lord 1987). We fight through hordes of bad guys to rescue our girlfriend. The female characters had graduates from being princesses to just girlfriends. Which probably has more of an emotional response to modern day men than a princess does. Only to find the kidnapper is our brother. The horror! The shock!

Double Dragon: Neon

oxmonline.com
17 September 2012
  • Excerpt: On the surface, Double Dragon Neon looks like a great fighter. However, after an extended bout, you’ll see some flaws that keep it from being among XBLA’s best. With Neon , revival-friendly Wayforward Technologies ( A Boy and His Blob , Contra 4 ) once again pays homage to the past with their own unique style.
  • Pros: + Gorgeous visuals, awesomely cheesy tunes, and funny (if occasionally offensive) voice clips., + Combat has subtle depth, enhanced by status modifiers and special moves.
  • Cons: ? Are the jetpack girls the most annoying non-boss beat-’em-up opponents ever? (Yes.)

Double Dragon Neon Xbox 360 Review

DarkZero
23 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Let me preface this review by saying that I don’t think the brawler or “scrolling beat ‘em up” genre is obsolete. If you firmly believe that there’s something inherently dated about a game like Streets of Rage , Final Fight or Double Dragon , neither this game nor this review will attempt to change your mind. I think it’s important to establish that the following is the opinion of someone who appreciates the genre.

Double Dragon Neon

maniac.de
6 December 2012
  • Excerpt: In den späten 1980ern war Double Dragon das Synonym für Sidescroll-Prügler. Neon scheint bei dem Versuch, an diese erfolgreiche Zeit anknüpfen zu wollen, zunächst zu scheitern. Zu schwerfällig gestaltet sich der Spielablauf, zu ungenau die Kollisionsabfrage und zu beliebig das Leveldesign – zumindest der poppige Soundtrack kann sich von Beginn an hören lassen.

Test : Double Dragon Neon

Gamekult.com
14 September 2012
  • Summary: Double Dragon Neon est un remake qui remplit son contrat. Certes, il est difficile de cautionner la direction artistique criarde. Mais en dépit d'une certaine mollesse dans les déplacements, le gameplay , lui, reste solide et le système d'amélioration assez prenant. De surcroît, l'excellente ambiance sonore et l'humour un peu décalé rendent l'expérience multijoueur amusante.
  • Pros: Un système d'amélioration bien vu, Une bande son qui dépote, Le principe du high five, L'humour potache, Efficace en coop
  • Cons: Pas de multi en ligne (pour le moment), Un choix esthétique douteux, Déplacements un peu mollassons, Pas de localisation française

Рецензия на Double Dragon Neon

gmbox.ru
6 April 2012
  • Excerpt: В 2012 году легендарная Double Dragon получила еще один шанс завоевать внимание публики, вернувшись на PlayStation 3 и Xbox 360 с подзаголовком Neon. У нынешних мальчишек требования к играм про уличные драки, очевидно, выше, чем были у нас двадцать лет назад, и одной трехмерной графикой и модернизированным саундреком тут не отделаться.
