"There’s something about nostalgia that sometimes seems to cloud better judgment. Sometimes when a group decides to take a well-received product from the past and put a fresh spin on it, it holds up really well. Other times there are people that take a fond childhood memory and crush it into the ground. Double Dragon Neon seems to hit a fairly comfortable medium in that sense. While nostalgic gameplay propel the game forward, it seems to fall flat by holding dear to some of the more awkward aspects of 1980′s gameplay."
