Excerpt: 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 exactly give me a rose-tinted look at its past before...
Excerpt: I don’t care what everyone tells you; the 80’s sucked. As decades go, very little of worth came from that period and what did -- yuppie pony tails, huge shoulder pads on cardigans, the new romantic music revolution -- can just go to hell and die.
Conclusion: If you want a cheap fun game to play through quickly or you want a fun old school feeling game to play with a friend then this is definitely worth checking out and if you haven’t played another Double Dragon game before this one may be a good way to start out.
Summary: Last year around this time I was raving about WayForward's brilliant BloodRayne: Betrayal, a fresh take on an otherwise middling action franchise. I loved it, but was shocked to discover that many of my fellow critics hated every second of it.

Excerpt: As the medium of video games grows older, we are now reaching the oh-so-seminal quarter-century milestones of many classic series. Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda , and Metal Gear all recently celebrated their 25th birthdays, and this year another classic series joins the club: Double Dragon .
Excerpt: Well, after playing it, I realize that I was too harsh on the graphic style chosen and there's far more to it than I could've realized then (but more on that later). The core game is vintage Double Dragon greatness with a megaton blast of humor and homage to other games and '80s culture that had me...
Summary: Blast Factor: Double Dragon: Neon is well worth its $10.00 price tag. Underneath its 80s glam exterior, Neon’s leveling system, unlockable difficulties, challenging achievements, and “Bro-op” modes will keep players coming back for more.
