I agree with you guys. If you are a big-enough DD fan, you will apprecite this new DD game. They didn't just make it DDII in HD; they re-imagined DDII as a whole and re-made it from the groundup. Characters, environments, and cut-scenes all look fresh and current. There's added quick-time events like Die-Hard Arcade, and you can even operate machinery like cranes to hit enemies! This is a great co-op game, and it's still a lot of fun single-player! I've had more fun with DDII than any other game this year. And this is coming from someone who even owns the Japanese import-only DDII for Sega Genesis...

Here's an article (with screenshots) on the Genesis DDII:

this game gets a bad rap. I mean such a bad rap that it doesn't even have its own neoseeker page, apparently.

really.
Funny, I feel this way about a lot of XBLA games!

this game gets a bad rap. I mean such a bad rap that it doesn't even have its own neoseeker page, apparently.

really.

we all know that DD neon, its not.

it doesn't help that the complete controls aren't listed in the in game "how to play" section either.

for instance, its amazing how something as simple as "mashing the attack button" when knocked down & surrounded by thugs can make all the difference in the world.

or explaining how the different colored orbs will cause an AoE attack that also replenishes your health to maximum either.

apparently adding things like this would've put them over their budget.

the cutscenes are well done, & once you get the hang of how to deal with the thugs (especially in groups) the game has more to offer than most people probably give it time to.

do I think its worth the 800 MS msrp? nope. could it use online coop? absolutely. it is DD afterall.

then again, considering the additional 400 MS points, DD neon doesn't even have it either.

try the demo: http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Trial-Game-Double-Dragon-II-the-wander-of-Dragons/597285b8-d83b-4371-89d3-915015b368ba?cid=SLink

don't forget to mash the button when you get dropped. lol.

there's other nifty little tricks you can perform that aren't listed in the instructions either. (running cartwheels, etc.) i'm telling you that if you're a big enough of a DD fan, you will find some redeeming qualities in this game.
