Man, it was a long time since a game made me shout that, reminding me why I love videogames.
Double Dragon Neon celebrates the original games and the 80's in the best way possible.
Don't pick this up expecting it to be like the first original game, the controls are more friendly, comfortable and you even have a great juggle potential hitting your enemies.
The game adds different songs to boost certain stats and give you abilities like summoning a Dragon or a fireball. It may feel out place for a lot of old-school fans but it's a welcome addition.
Genzo's style fits perfectly in the game and his new designs really work as a modern look for old characters.
The music is perfect, from remixes of the original themes to 80's covers, and they're vocal.
As for the plot, you already know it. Marian hanging out, bad dudes arrive and kidnap her.
BUT, here's where you either LOVE the game or HATE it completely.
DDN never takes itself seriously and you'll notice it. It has humour out of place considering the source material and even it has its Gurren Lagann moments, but hell, personally I LOVED them, they fitted with Genzo style and never broke the flow of the game, in fact, it made it even better. I won't spoil all the surprises this game has to offer, so just be prepared for some really crazy stuff.
This game IT HAS TO BE PLAYED COOP for the full experience. Grab your nearest bro and prepare to have a great time, because Double Dragon Neon DELIVERS, and delivers FUN.
Remember back then when you played games for FUN? I know I do.
WayFoward, you never dissapoint.
