What Gamespot Users have to say about Double Dragon: Neon

  • User Rating 7.5

    A goofy take on an old-school classic that doesn't redefine the beat-em-up genre, but is a retro blast nonetheless.

    Firstly, this game is incredibly entertaining, and secondly, this game is endearingly terrible. It's important to convey those two points when properly discussing Double Dragon: Neon, the newest entry...

    A nostalgic trip back to the 80s, complete with familiar characters, gameplay, controls, music, and catchphrases.

    Double Dragon Neon is the latest in the 1980s arcade beat-em-up series staring brothers Billy and Jimmy Lee. While the gameplay, characters, and music give a nod to the game's forefathers, Neon still...

    The biggest failure of gaming since Duke Nukem Forever.

    Double Dragon Neon is mostly 80s fluff with little substance, compromising the spirit of its renowned source.

    25 years ago, a brawler hit the arcades like a knee to the face, eating quarters for breakfast and challenging gamers the world over to brave the mean streets in order to teach a dude with a machine g...

    My 1st impressions after beating DD Neon. With an amazing soundtrack and old school beat up action DDN will rock you.

    I really do love Wayforward, they are just able to do so many great things with games that it makes me wonder how much they love games. Double Dragon Neon really does feel like the biggest love letter...
