Crashes every 10-20 minutes in multi-player which is less than one map most often so one have to restart it quite a bit.
May be decent otherwise but that's not great and frustrating and will likely hold people back from playing it all that much.

It has some fighter inspired moves I guess and some bosses but the "quality" aspect of it so to say? There's actual player vs player fighting games which likely make the work much better.
If it at-least ran stable when it would be what it claim to be: Double dragon. But now since it crashes the whole time ..

This game is better than He-man vs Liono! This Game puts She-ra to shame, and makes her kneel to Barbie! Unlike the most recent reviews I see... I have been a Gamer Girl since F(censored for SJW's)cking DUCK HUNT / MARIO! Look, I owned a FUC(Censored for SJW's)ing POWER PAD! POWER GLOVE! :p how does that help this review? IT DOESN'T! Because seriously the power glove sucked! IT did not help your Double Dragon Action! But this will!

The music is 100% LEGIT! It IS the SAME SONGS all over again!... but updated to be more awesome! SO MUCH MORE AWESOME that Rainbow Dash wouldn't know how to dress in such style!

You know you are doing something right by playing this game when you start it up..... and you get the FIRE on the top and bottom parts of the screen, WITH THE ORIGINAL FRIGGIN THEME SONG ACTION with an ELECTRIC GUITAR! You will ♥♥♥♥ a brick, you will know you are in the right place..... then, you will start the game...

Menu screen set things up, you don't know what any of it means but you will think DJ boys with the visuals! You'll say screw it, lets just play the game and see what happens.......... .... .... ... ....

The bad guys walk up to your Girlfriend..... the guy brings his fist back, lunges forward to punch her.... BUT! Before he hits her... (PAUSE!) Music from the NES game that shows "which mission you are in" song starts! You going to tell me that was not on purpose!?!?!

You'll play the game you know and love with updated graphics and updated combat styles. There is a bit of a learning curve to this, not going to lie but it really isn't that hard. I suggest you play solo the first 2 levels 2 times, before you team up with friends! Like the original, team damage is active! (as it shoudl be! You 2000 player age groups and above don't know what player damage really means! (Streets of Rage ♥♥♥♥♥es!) But once you got that? I HIGHLY suggest you play with a friend, whom also never played this game before beyond level 2.....

Because Level 3 is when the ♥♥♥♥ hits the fan in ways you won't predict and yet are soooo 80's goodness! The only thing more 80's than this version of the game is Kung Fury! I haven't even beatne this game yet, and I would NOT BE SHOCKED if David Hasselhoff is in this game! THAT Is how fuc(CENSORED for BlacklivesMatters)ing awesome this game is!

If this is not enough for you? You are stupid! BUT I will give this SPOILER TO YOU!!!!

=
=
=
=
Level (Cenosored) boss, a Skeleton guy boss... you beat him, but he is not going to be killed yet! "Time to make a Marrow Escape!"

If that isn't enough for you to desire playing this game, and ignoring those Mellenial ♥♥♥♥♥ reviews below mine? You should give up, throw in the towel, and go back to those games that hodl your hand every step of the way becuase you are too ♥♥♥♥♥ to actually accomplish anyting on your own! Vote for Bernie while your at it!

Pretty terrible "remake" or whatever this is supposed to be. Strange art direction and horrible music. Doesn't remind me anything of the dark gloomy Double Dragon that I remember from my youth.

This does have online co-op, not sure why it's not listed on the store page.

I've actually played this before on my kids PS3. And beat it on Double Dragon difficulty. Thankfully, my kids are still young enough to be influenced and can be molded to like the 80s /90s culture I grew up in. So I'll play this on my PC and they'll play together on the PS3. Great way to bond.

The only crash I've had was at the start up where it was just a black screen. Went into the local files, switched to integrated graphics instead of Nvidia and the game works like a charm, no crashing at all. And I'm running Windows 10 too with no issues.

Probably one of the best games in my library, no joke, just under Double Dragon Trilogy. A great soundtrack for anyone who likes 80s music and easy to rock along with as you beat Williams and Abobo to a pulp. My only complaint is they didn't bring back Roper, except as a secret stage in the lab.
Hit detection is fine for me, pace of the game flows with a proper beat em up and difficult enough to provide a challenge without being too hard. I can't believe they gave us lives per stage instead of lives for the whole game. That was awful generous of them.

Lousy, frequent stutter when running across level, horrible gameplay balancing means this is more Double ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ instead of Double Dragon.

Just don't bother getting this game when the classic Double Dragon on NES has superior hit collision and great feedback instead of laggy input.

It's a pretty entertaining beat em up with some fun retro elements but unfortunately it doesn't work great on a gtx970 graphics card. The game crashes every 15-20mins and it's rinse and repeat. Pouring over the forums came up with a fix from a gamer/programmer which enables the game to be played for about 45mins to an hour before the crash and it's back to square one again. If you can live with some moderate entertainment for 30mins to 45mins then it's a recommendation, otherwise, NOT recommended. Double dragon fans need not apply either.

A rather simple beat'em up by Wayforward, which I really enjoy. The visuals are nice and the gameplay works fine. The real star of this game however is the music. Which simply put is wonderful. The game also features some 1980's nostalgia, that you may be yearning for?

I've played this game upwards of 72 hours despite what my account suggests. My initial experience to the game was that it felt slow but what can you do? It's not exactly a traditional sprite based beat'em up with attack wind ups to make the attacks look smoother. Actually, the speed is appropriate for some of the gameplay mechanics to function properly (gleam).

Initially, in the first difficulty setting you may not understand the game fully even with the in game tutorials. DDN encourages crouching an avoidable attack to gain attack bonuses so that you can take out enemies more efficiently. You'll undoubtedly acquire mixtapes from enemies to either have stat bonuses or a special attack that uses up meter. You'll get to have 2 tapes on max (one special attack and one stats booster).

By the time I reached the later difficulties my experience when playing the game was at its max. My character's stats were appropriate to the difficulty and the game became fair and less frustrating. It's up to you to get good at the game and enjoy its quirky 80's aesthetics. If anyone is further interested in the gameplay mechanics feel free to youtube Episode 24 of my "Beat'em up Dissection" videos.

Do you miss the 80's? Casette tapes, Hi-Fives, Air Guitar and pop culture refrences a plenty?
Do you feel like Hockey Hair and Local Co-op Beat 'em Ups should make a come back in a big way?

This my friend, is the game for you. If you have no idea what the 80's are or were, you'll still get a lot of fun out of this classic arcade style homage to the retro game series Double Dragon.

On this bro-tatsic adventure, play alone or team-up with a friend as, Billy Lee, and his bro, Jimmy, on a quest to save the damsel in distress from a never ending supply of bad guys.

With cool combos, powers, nice soundtrack, clean graphics, smooth controlls and a sense of humor which shows the game clearly doesn't take itself too seriously, DDN is a short but sweet game that is well worth the asking price.

My one complaint...it has crashed on me before. Not cool. Someone get on that.

Stay Bro-tacular,
Mister Venture

Good game, great music. Doesn't really play like a Double Dragon or any other beat 'em up ever for that matter. If you can get past that and the fact that it's fairly difficult to control/map in joy2key if you're not on a xbox pad, recommended.

If you ever grew up in the 90's and played mash em ups, this will feel right at home.

When its on sale for $1, its a steal.

I play this on Win7 right now, BUT IF YOU CHECK THE DISCUSIONS IT APPEARS THAT SOMEONE FOUND A FIX FOR THOSE WITH WIN 10!!!

*DAY AFTER EDIT: "This has to be why Surround Sound was Invented!" xD~

========================================================

I don't know if you understand 80's vernacular but:
"This game is RAD!"

If you played the original in the Arcade or NES you'll LOVE the
new hyper NEON version.

The Pro's:
--------------

~ Feels the business, looks the business. It IS Double Dragon.
Love the familiar characters... the playstyle, the way it handles.
Real Arcade feel. Perfect for my ipac joystick interface.

I'm loving the new soundtrack pickups in game that modify your stats.
It adds a layer of depth on how to play. Cool addition. Love the Gleam.

The actual soundtrack is PHENOMENAL!!! ~ I play it on MAX and it's LOUD. xD~
Crystal till I hit the boss level, had to turn it down a few notches. =)

Visuals: I need a huge projector for this. ~ This needs to be played in the garage or something
gigantic with the walls thumping. xD~ The feeling I got was (weird I know) I felt
the way I felt when first jumping into the car in gta3 and hearing the radio...

ARE you KIDDING ME?!? *Just a total sense of absolute...
"THIS IS THE COOLEST SHXT I HAVE EVER SEEN!" xD~

And I haven't felt that way in a long time. ~ This really did bring back some memories.
And the BEST PART:

It's waaay better than the original in terms of just...
Being the Hyper NEON version it's supposed to be.

It's a genuine ARCADE GAME! ~ All the Way.
If you are an OG diehard of Jimmy and Billy LEE, you already have this.
If you, by some miracle, had no idea this exists... xD~

HOLY GOD.
The answer is: YES!!! IT IS DOUBLE DRAGON O.G. ~ 2k.
NEON Style.


The Cons:
---------------

IMPORTANT PERFORMANCE/TECHNICAL NOTE regarding NEGATIVE REVIEWS for WINDOWS 10:

*I have win7 core2duo oem240GTS. ~ I do not have Win10. xD~
I do not have the Nvidia driver problem. ~ I will say that from observation
NVidia inspector does not recognize it on my setup nor implement the changes
I specified when configured manually... which is Odd to say the least. xD~

*play in compatability mode?
idk what I'd do. ~ It's not recognizing it now. I'm just playing 1920x1080 2xAA
and getting 60fps so.. That's why *from now on. ~ I'll prob. keep multiple machines
with different OS's just to arcade LAN my favorite games and avoid that altogether but,
who knows... I'd figure something out eventually I guess. xD~

It's a RAD game... Shame that new OS's aren't behaving and the Dev's
are calling it a Completed Assignment with no further support.
Niche crowd. ~ Keep it on an i5 with win7 and it'll be a dream forever. For Me???
... No way in hell I would let Microsoft/Nividia compatibility keep me from this Game. xD~


Conclusion:
========

It works on 7.
Use your decked out i5-2500k SandyBridge thats chillin' in the closet. =)
It would play FLAWLESS co-op forever.

Don't let an O.S. or driver issues keep you from this game if you want it.
If you want it...
GO GET IT. xD~
It's every bit O.G. Double Dragon HYPER NEON version 2k.
=)

Absolute No-Brainer.
Its finding the nug of 1HQ at the bottom of the jar.
NO Waaaaay!!! Gooood Lookin Ouuut!!! xD~
Hidden Treasure.

DOUBLE DRAGON NEON???!

Yup.
Is it Good?
... "It's Insane" xD~

4.20 stars.
(redacted 0.80 for not keeping up to date after 2 months of complaints
on Win10 Nvidia Drivers as per the NEG reviews. xD)

First of all, I feel sorry for all the people who haven't got the chance to enjoy this game due to technical issues.

This is a remake of Double Dragon done right. Great music, art and gameplay, perfect game for a hot seat play, if you have gamepads.

If you have played the original on NES and have a buddy, who's willing to join, then that's gonna be a good evening.

A little clunky, a few bugs here and there (some are kinda bad), but overall a good beat-em-up that isn't too difficult (though it does have some tough segments). Even better in co-op. Certainly not perfect, but good, and it has a skeletor analogue and some bill and ted types and a great soundtrack.

This game is quite possibly the best .99 I've ever spent. The combat in this game is the best I've ever played in a side-scroller beat'em up. It almost feels like playing a side-scroller Street Fighter game with RPG-esque elements thrown in with shops found throughout the levels. Dodging and countering are very meaningful and give a real sense of achievement when you can successfully fight your way through a crowd taking very little damage or using the environment to your advantage. In addition to your own ability to combo through a crowd, you are also equiped with different "songs" that equate to abilities/magics, one being a passive buff and the other a special attack. I liked the brawler feel so I went with an absorb health/spin kick combo, it works really well to keep your health up and bulldoze waves of enemies. I really enjoyed the humor of this game, it really hit me in the right spot. The original version of double dragons was among the first games I ever got my hands on and played heck trying to get to work in our overused Nintendo. It feels even more fun to play it as an adult on here than it did as a kid. Even if you're not wearing rose colored glasses like me, this game will rock your socks.

While the fighting may feel a little stiff compared to other brawlers, the game makes up for any loss of substance with loads of style. Awesome music composed by Jake Kaufman, some of the corniest dialog ever that will have you laughing at the pure absurdity, and lots of ways to customize your experience by using eight different stances and abilities. I also love the colorful levels and enemies.

This game was made with nothing but fun in mind. Nothing here is taken seriously. Like a giant plant boss with two bulbs that explode to reveal a dinosaur head in one and a shark head in the other. Or the main bad guy who I swear is channeling Papyrus from Undertale with his laugh and puns. This is what videogames are all about man. Even if it isn't the most solid gameplay experience, I'll always treasure it for it's style.

I'd say getting it on sale is a must.
