I feel bad for you Chris. For having to review this game. It really couldn't have been fun.

Ah, this reminds me of the old crap game reviews back in NGamer and its forebears. Delicious memories...

Okay mate, I'm happy for you. I reckon I'm pretty decent at games too and I stand by my review - it's gash. :(

I reckon he got confused and played the demo for Double Dragon Neon, because this is the second review i've read today saying it's the worst game ever and a score of 1.

And i'm a sitting down and eating bacon and bean toasty grand master so i know my stuff.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

If it is that bad, how did it get the go-ahead to be released?

Whoever certified this game needs a good kicking and talking to.

This game is quite clearlyl the Scary Movie 5 (no I haven't seen it or want to but iGN only gave it a 1) of the games world.

Totally agree with reviewer

I downloaded the trial and had quit the game and deleted it off my hard drive faster than it had taken to download a truly hideous game.

You're joking, right?
No, seriously, please tell us that you're trying to be funny.
This game doesn't have a single redeeming feature.
If this game was free, it would be awful value for money.
I don't know about worst game on XBLA, as I haven't played them all, but it is certainly one of the very worst games I've ever had the misfortune to encounter.

What??? Have I woken up in opposite world today? Double Dragon Neon is excellent.
If you're wondering, yes, I played the original DD back in the day and loved it. It was my favourite beat-em-up until Streets of Rage II.
I like cake.

I agree Neon is good, you've read the comment wrong. I said TheLastNinja must have played Neon to say this was good and he got mixed up between the two.

When the article first went up the score was 10.0 but I see it has been edited to the more fitting 1.0

Unless you're a grandmaster of Street Fighter. Then it deserves at least eleventy.

Completely agree with the review. I downloaded the trail for nostalgias sake and god damn is it shocking. Complete waste since DD2 was one of the best games on the NES.

Double Dragon II is my favourite NES game, and I have such fond childhood memories of it...the trailer for this just s**t all over them.

Yeah this looks gash, but then again i thought Double Dragon Neon was gash as well.

Wow, and I thought Double Dragon 3 on the Gameboy was bad (I should know, I had that bad boy and believe me it is definitely one of the worst games I have played, ever!). I normally take reviews with a pinch of salt and read between the lines to get to the truth, but (unlike the majority of reviews I have read across the net) this review does indeed sound legit. Double Dragon Neon was pretty good, although imo still not as good as the original, or indeed Double Dragon 1 on the Gameboy - amazing game. I know this is a different developer but Its hard to believe its gone so horribly wrong for the franchise!

Kesmoney - I think Barry316 was saying the forum user had played the demo of Neon and confused it with this, not the reviewer.
