80s style with good humor and challenging gameplay. This is the best Double Dragon I've ever played, and I've played them all, including the arcade originals. If you've played the console version of Neon, it's the same game here, with one big exception: As of this review, the console version of DDN does not have online co-op, while the PC version does. That's a big seller for me. Also, it seems to me the PC version of Double Dragon Neon has more responsive controls. Play this with a gamepad or prepare to get your ♥♥♥ handed to you often.
If you haven't played DDN, or any DD game in general, it's your standard 2D beat 'em up. You can collect cassette tapes to gain new abilities and fighting styles and upgrade them. DDN is quite challenging, but not unfairly so. Learn to dodge or get ready to get whooped. WayForward has done an excellent job making something old something new again.
