I checked to see who the developer was (Gravity) & it turns out they did that MMO Ragnarok.

The developer, Cyber Front, seems to have some different divisions (they published some random games in Japan, the latest being Skullgirls. They published Zombie Driver HD in the US), though the one that did this game was Korean.


So there you go, a South Korean developer. Since the Starcraft 2 expansion came out recently, they are probably not even aware that the North Koreans are about to invade. ;)

Double Dragon II may be the new worst game on Xbox live.

Do not even waste your time downloading the trial for this disgrace.

So I have to say I completed Deadlight myself and I had no problem at all with the controls, the combat or anyhting like that...story wasn't that bad either but very predictable...

So in a nutshell I liked this (kinda short) game and had fun while playing it, it also has some minigames inside the game which were fun too....I agree that MotN is the better game but if you have 600 MSP burning in your pocket after you got MotN then I can recommend it for this price...

I have to wonder how Microsoft keeps releasing these $15 games for $10 at launch to screw over the publisher/developer.


Are you referring to Double Dragon II? I think it was supposed to be 800 MSP but Major Nelson had the price listed incorrectly.

Unless you know more about it than I do, which is very probable...

I Got to admit all the questions of "how's this game compared to this game?" on nearly every page and usually the SAME game brought up over and over again is kind of making me for the third post being about CAG reviews.

I'm going by the price that everybody here was freaking out about when it was announced to be a $15 game. I can't find any official confirmation anywhere because both the developer and publisher have no mention of this game on their respective sites. This seems like the ultimate cash-in project.

Microsoft did that to Retro City Rampage at launch without the developer's permission, which he already wasn't a huge fan of the launch date he was given.

It wouldn't matter if Double Dragon II had launched at 1 Microsoft point, the game still wouldn't be worth downloading.

Total disgrace to the franchise.

Ugh, was planning on getting DD2 as part of the rewards offer, but trying the demo, it just felt so terrible. & this is especially after the fact Double Dragon Neon was a rather decent remake/tribute of the first game. DD2's "remake" just felt like a poor PS1 game overall.

Well, guess I gotta find a different game now. Perhaps I'll get a fighting game like Garou, NeoGeo Battle Coliseum, or Gulity Gear. Or maybe I'll get 2 400 MSP games (Xevious, Time Pilot, Super Contra, Tetris Splash &/or Sega Bass Fishing) to equal 800. Rocket Knight seems tempting, & I've been waiting forever for it to go on sale.

Already have that & even recommended it to other people in here. Phantom Breaker Battleground has also provided some fun over the last few days as well.

Think I'm gonna wait for the remaining sales to be announced for the month before I buy anything else. Doubt something I want will be discounted (Guilty Gear for 800 would be sweet, but I doubt it), but ya never know.

Like I said a few days ago, the price was always supposed to be 800. But there was a lot of sale discussion so my post probably got lost in the shuffle. Major Nelson just misreported it. And you know, given the general consensus about Double Dragon II's quality (or at least its antiquated graphics engine which everyone then extrapolates into overall quality), 800 is much smarter than 1200.

I'm working on getting the game's South Korean devs Gravity Co to change its store description, BTW.

I can't believe people actually liked Deadlight. To steal from a great who died yesterday, I hated this game. Hated hated hated hated hated this game. Hated it. I have over 100 XBLA games, and I've only ever deleted one off my harddrive. That game is Deadlight.

Awful controls, awful combat, awful platforming, awful story, but just enough promise and potential to make you mad that the game wasn't better.


The problem I think with Deadlight is that it's a game that strangely gets progressively worse as you play it. The first 20-30 minutes of it are great and then as they try to add new mechanics (or in some ways remove mechanics as they leave you with just a slingshot) it just gets worse. I admit that I can't really think of another game that gets more frustrating and boring as it unfolds. That closes off the world instead of opening it as you move through the game. Most games start off with you in a room and open up a world as you learn the mechanics, I felt the latter happening in this game. It's sort of unique that way. Though I don't think I hated hated it like you did. I'm glad it's just about 3 hours though as after an hour into it I couldn't wait for it to end, but the completionist in me needed to see it through.

The one thing I did appreciate it that it's easy to get 400/400 gamerscore and so once it's finished it can be deleted and forgotten about. Yes the controls are at times muddy. But it does have a decent checkpoint system that doesn't punish you too hard for some of the sillier deaths. I got it for free off playxbla and wouldn't have paid more than 200-400 msp for it.

RIP Mr Ebert btw, your two thumbs will be sorely missed

So, I got 2 punches for buying a 400 point game, but I only bought one, Mark of the Ninja. Unless TWD episodes counted, or Dragonborn. Really not sure what happened.
