DT Racer review for PlayStation 2. www.ClassicGameRoom**** Classic Game Room reviews DT RACER for PS2 from XS Games and Axis Entertainment released in 2005. There's many different things that DT can stand for but Quality Controls isn't one of them. DT Racer suffers from style over substance and has extremely poor driving gameplay mixed with awesome crashes, good music and cool replays (usually full of said crashes). Collect up to 26 cars from non-licensed but still-resembling real life cars like the NSX and Dodge Viper... or whatever they call them in this game. DT Racer gameplay is fast and challenging but cars fail with terrible understeer combined with on-or-off braking and poor visibility. CGR DT Racer video review has gameplay from DT Racer played on PS2 with widescreen visuals and stereophonic sound. The DT Racer cheat code to unlock / buy all of the cars from a new career mode is L1 L2 Triangle R1 R2 start career mode (from main menu). Interesting note, DT Racer works with the EyeToy camera and can take a picture of you and apply it to the game's driver icon. Good crashes, good tunes, terrible driving controls = DT Racer!

Skylanders review part 30. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Follow for new shows and updates *******www.Twitter****/ClassicGameRoom Classic Game Room reviews ZOOK for Skylanders Spyro's Adventure, a life element Skylander who looks like a deformed house plant mixed with an RPG. Zook fires missiles and mortal shells at enemies and packs a serious punch to go with his bizarre look.
Future Spa review. www.ClassicGameRoom**** Classic Game Room reviews FUTURE SPA from Bally released in 1979, a disco fresh look at exercise and relaxation in the future! Future Spa is an amazing wide body pinball table with beautiful, well drawn and painted artwork depicting a Logan's Run style future where people jog with mustaches and bath beneath women floating in space held by dissolving ribbons. You may want to avoid the water and lift light sabers instead... Set pleasure levels to ULTRA SONIC because Future Spa is as much fun to play as it is to look at!
Dragon pinball review. Classic Game Room reviews DRAGON from InterFlip released in 1977, a sci-fi dragon themed video game with naked women being eaten by dragons and the most awesome BWAAARR sound you've ever heard.
Corvette PS2 review. www.ClassicGameRoom**** Classic Game Room reviews CORVETTE for PlayStation 2 from Steel Monkeys, GM and Global Star Software. Corvette was released in 2004 around the time of Corvette's 50th anniversary as one of America's most iconic brands and this game features dozens of Corvettes starting from the first one up to the 50th anniversary C5 model.
Indy 500 review. Classic Game Room reviews INDY 500 for Game****, a racing game based on the famous Indianapolis 500 auto race with black and white visuals that fail to impress and sounds that hunt down and destroy eardrums. The Tiger Electronics Game**** was an interesting handheld with a touch screen, dual game slots and Internet hookup but failed to deliver solid visuals which destroys gameplay on fast paced games like Indy 500. CGR Indy 500 video review features auto racing Indy500 gameplay recorded from Game**** in HD.
Gundam Battle Assault 2 review. Classic Game Room reviews GUNDAM BATTLE ASSAULT 2 for Sony PlayStation from Bandai released in 2002. CGR Gundam Battle Assault 2 video review features Gundam Battle Assault 2 gameplay recorded from PS3 (although this is an original Playstation 1 game disc). Gundam Battle Assault 2 (spelled Gundum Battle Assault 2 on the spine of the packaging) is an awesome PlayStation 1 fighting game where giant robots crush each other and machine gun their enemies with authority!

Bejeweled HD iPad review. Classic Game Room reviews BEJEWELED HD for iPad from PopCap, a fab touch screen version of the classic jewel swapping game with wormholes, deep voices and fresh jam music.
Fatal Fury 2 review. Classic Game Room reviews FATAL FURY 2 for Sega Genesis from Takara and SNK, the 16-bit version of SNK's awesome Neo-Geo fighting game originally released in 1992. Featuring improved visuals and sound compared to the first Fatal Fury on Genesis, Fatal Fury 2 also has more fighters (12 total that I know of) and a survival mode as well as six-button Sega Genesis controller support. Background visuals, fighter details and the overall graphics aren't up to SNK Neo-Geo standards but look good for the mighty Sega Genesis (aka Sega Mega Drive). CGR Fatal Fury 2 video review features Sega Genesis Fatal Fury 2 gameplay and characters like Andy, Terry, Mai, Big Bear, Joe Higashi, Cheng Sinzan, Kim Kaphwan, Axel Hawk, Laurence Blood, Wolfgang Krauser, Billy Kane and more.
Battleship game review. Classic Game Room reviews BATTLESHIP for Xbox 360 from Double Helix and Activision, the video game based on the movie based on the board game based on sinking Battleships! You sank my Battleship (copyright TM)!!!! Battleship video game is available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 PS3, Battleship is also available on Nintendo Wii, DS and 3DS but for those versions it is a turn based strategy game. This version of Battleship videogame is a combo first person shooter and tactical naval strategy game!
Starhawk review for PS3. Classic Game Room reviews STARHAWK on the PlayStation 3, a massive space western action shooter with 32 player online multiplayer matches! Starhawk is essentially the spiritual successor to Warhawk, a massive shooter with vehicles and airplanes where you create gun turrets, walls and sniper towers using "rift energy" gained while fighting. Starhawk sadly has no relation to the Cinematronics release for the Vectrex, but they share the same name which makes it immediately cool. Fortunately, it's cool anyway because Starhawk has solid gameplay, fun multiplayer and a campaign mode to teach you how to play the game. CGR Starhawk video review has Starhawk gameplay recorded from PlayStation 3 showing Starhawk PS3 game play in HD action. From Lightbox and Sony.
Red Faction 2 review. Classic Game Room reviews RED FACTION II for PlayStation 2 from Volition and THQ released in 2002. Red Faction 2 is the sequel to the groundbreaking and amazing RED FACTION 1 released in 2001 with Geo Mod technology and a wicked sense of humor combined with solid first person shooter gameplay. While Red Faction II falls short in many areas including lack of Geo Mod destruction and sloppy early level design, it's frantic pace, hilarious screaming sounds, fire effects and great shooter gameplay make it a winner. CGR Red Faction 2 video review features Red Faction II gameplay recorded from PlayStation 2 PS2. Red Faction II can now be downloaded for your favorite video game console of choice (provided it isn't the Magnavox Odyssey II, Atari 5200 or Vectrex :( You can download for PS3 and Xbox 360.
