Game Informer - After such a loving tribute to old-school brawling from WayForward in Double Dragon: Neon last year, it's hard to see the property treated like garbage by a completely different developer and publisher. No, Double Dragon II isn't a sequel to Neon. It's a remake of the original arcade game in which Billy and Jimmy took a break from their blue and red outfits and invented the legendary hurricane kick. It's also darker than the first Double Dragon. Here Marian gets shot dead at the beginning instead of kidnapped.
