Baer-ly Played – Double Dragon: Neon (Review)
In celebration of the series 25th anniversary, Double Dragon Neon was released for the Xbox Live Arcade on September the 12th. WayForward Technologies set out to recreate the style and feel of the 80s arcade classic. Think rockin’ tunes, leather vests and gratuitous boobage. Sounds all well and good, until you realize they may have taken it a step too far.
Right off the bat you are introduced to a heaping fistful of misogyny. Street roughians make off with your girl – who is apparently on board with polyandry – and take her away to presumably be indoctrinated into the Ways of the Punk-ass Fool. You begin your quest to get her back on the streets of Righteousublar City (I made that up), and the game slowly holds your hand through the basic and not-so-basic controls. And that’s where the fun stops.

Hey! I'm Alex Larrabee, also called "Baer" on the internet because I can't spell. I'm a writer here at GameTaffy, and I also host the Let's Play with GameTaffy series on our YouTube channel. If you'd like to, you can contact me via email (email@example.com) or Twitter (@BaerTaffy), and tell me all sorts of stuff about what you did at school today. Then, later on, we can make a gingerbread house and play dinosaurs - but only when you finish your chores.
