If this is what Jeff was talking about... Wow.

Game looks like ass. And not the good kind.

Looks very, very boring.

I like my ass janky with a low frame count

The actual launch trailer doesn't make it look all that much better. It even uses some of the same footage from that old video. Unbelievable.

I didn't start the video but right off the bat those breasts are doing something magical. Good Lord.

Hey, some people take what they can get.

Well, this will clearly make for an entertaining quick look.

It doesn't look as bad as I thought it would. It's not falling apart or anything, it just looks boring.

Hmm. Not seeing why such a big deal was made out of this. I see mediocrity on XBLA all the time. It just looks like a brawler with PS1-era graphics. A small remnant of an archaic genre. Nothing more, nothing less. I was expected something so bad it would make for great comedy. This is not that.

Looks awful...

I think I remember Jeff talking about this on an old Bombcast and I confused it with Double Dragon Neon. I was really confused as to why he seemed to think that game looked so bad. Neon came out and was okay, even if Jeff didn't dig it (full disclosure; never played it myself, either.)

Well, uh, now I get it, though.

Cant wait for a quicklook!

Whoa, I'd heard it looked like shit, but I wasn't prepared for this level of crapiness. For some reason I get really annoyed when people use two exclamation marks instead of one or three.

Wow, this is certainly...a something.

The marketplace description for this game is amazing:

This is a remake “Double Dragon II” a 80’s game. The story line takes same as original game story. However, the graphic, character, action, system etc. are change. Also we are including new stage and enemy in the game. The player will be addicted to new version of Double Dragon II. Also, characters are undressed from 80’s style, and recreated with modern sexy and beautiful style that amaze you and feel never been experienced world before.

Visually it seems a notch above Hybrid Heaven...

New forum image sizes are a bummer.

Attaching image as I just want to make sure this is never lost to history or Marketplace proofreaders. That's some MotW shit right there.

It's not often I use the "It looks like a PS2 game" quip, but I wouldn't even use that here. It looks like an arcade game out of the mid-late '90s.

This looks worse then the TMNT Turtles in Time remake.

So, apparently this game was finished like 2 years ago, but the company making it went out of business or something? I'm not quite sure. Anyway, looking for it on YouTube reveals that Xbox 360 modders have been able to access and play this for a long time.

The final version up on the marketplace right now looks exactly like the one in the video in the OP.

For the record Double Dragon Neon was actually really enjoyable. If you have a buddy on the couch next to you it is stupid fun.

I like beat-em-ups but this looks....awful. Worst than DD: Neon

QUOTED. For posterity. :)

They updated the description. What a shame. It was the only good thing about this game.

I would have bitten had it been like $5 or less. For $15 there's much, much better you can find on the Marketplace.
