Classic Game Room HD reviews METAL SLUG 7 for Nintendo DS from SNK / Playmore and publshed by Ignition. Metal Slug is one of the best run and gun, 2D side scrolling shooting video game series ever created. Awesome action, beautifully designed 2-D visuals and intense gameplay. This CGR review of Metal Slug 7 on DS shows video game play in HD action on Nintendo DS. Metal Slug 7 has 7 stages, numerous characters and new "Slugs"! Plays with D-pad and buttons, no irritating stylus/button gameplay. Rated T for Too-Tough. Simple yet elegant, Metal Slug 7 is illin'. Those with a Sony PSP will want to look at Metal Slug XX which is basically the same game for the PSP with slight differences and a moderately smoother visual presentation, but keep in mind that Metal Slug 7 may be the best looking Nintendo DS game out there.

Classic Game Room HD reviews SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI: STRANGE JOURNEY for Nintendo DS from Atlus. With more than 300 demons to battle or recruit and a wild storyline taking place in Antarctica, Strange Journey is just that... a strange journey into an anomole spreading to destroy the Earth. Although this Shin Megami Tensei game seems to be the most grounded out of the several I've played lately. Fans of good old school adventure RPG games like Phantasy Star and The Dark Spire will dig this one. It packs that unique Shin Megami Tensei demon collecting and fusing style into a classic 1st person RPG video game that works well with the Nintendo DS. This CGR review of Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey has gameplay from the Nintendo DS release of Strange Journey showing video game play in HD action. You wear a cool suit in this game called the Demonica suit which gets more powerful as you gain experience. Players can upgrade the suit and buy new weapons, items, sub-apps and armor with Forma and items found within the anomole. Classic RPG adventure gameplay with that catchy Shin Megami Tensei style make this a must play for role playing game fans with a Nintendo DS. Video game comes packed in some of the best looking packaging that we've seen in years along with a soundtrack CD containing the unique music from the game.
Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of ROBOTRON 2084 for the Atari 7800 Prosystem. Robotron 2084 is one of the best old school classic video games ever created. You are a loner armed with a laser gun facing wave after wave of Robotrons hell bent on wiping out mankind. What will the year 2085 be like, how about 2086? This game asks a lot of questions and leaves few answers. But it does leave a wake of human carnage in its path. This is a hard shooter, sort of like Smash TV (hmmmm.... any similarities, maybe the same awesome designer??) CGRHD also reviews Robotron 2084 for Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation 1 game console in the Williams Greatest Hits collection and also Robotron 64 for the N64. Do they have a version of this game on PS3 or Wii? On Xbox Live you can get achievements and gamerpoints.

Classic Game Room HD reviews the Atari 7800 gamepad controller for the Atari 7800 video game console. The Prosystem was not fortunate to get a pro level controller in North America.... however much of the rest of the world was very lucky and got this awesome Nintendo style game pad controller with two buttons and a digital thumb pad. The textured feel fits nicely into the hands and it plays games from the Atari 7800 and Atari 2600 with ease. I believe this is the controller that gamers in the UK, Europe and Australia received with their Ataris. Sucks for us, we got the dreated Atari 7800 US controller. Thie controller worked well for playing games like Xevious, Donkey Kong, Joust and Ms. Pac Man on the Atari 7800 Prosystem. You could also play 2600 titles like Enduro, Mario Bros., Combat and Adventure. Does not work on NES, PS3, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 or Wii.
Classic Game Room HD looks at and reviews the unique styling of the video game cartridges for the Magnavox Odyssey 2 video game console system. These are very different from cartridges that you might find for the Atari 2600, 5200 or 7800 systems. For one thing they have giant handles on them, and that's awesome. This makes them easy to carry around with you, wear as an accessory or pull out of the game system if you've been playing with mustard. The Maggie O2 is a great game system with some fun games like KC Munchkin!, Speedway! and CRYPTO-LOGIC! It's a good thing they made this handy cartridge design, too bad it didn't catch on. Games for the PS3, Playstation 3, Dreamcast, Sega Saturn, Xbox 360 or Gamecube could have benefitted from this amazing handle clad cartridge. This isn't a commercial for the Odyssey or a review of any particular gameplay or footage, this is a straight up review of the design of the plastic cartridge. Only on CGRHD will you see crap like this.
Classic Game Room HD reviews HONEY DEFENDER on the Honey Nut Cheerios box. This video game comes free with your box of delicious Honey Nut Cheerios and can be played on a "computer" using "online" something or other, but Classic Game Room plays with its own rules. CGR playes Honey Defender in real life with the unique Dog Controller (sold seperately). Honey Defender is technically played online at HoneyDefender**** where you access the code from the box and guide the Kratos-like bee through Mumbee's Temple, Wild West, Honey Falls, Hive City and the Honey Refinery!!! There is golden treasure just waiting to be discovered, can you find it? The game has a honey wand and bee smarts... BEE SMARTS!!!! Are you smarter than a bee? Play Honey Defender and find out! An exclusive Honey Nut Cheerios video game not available for Playstation 3 PS3, Xbox 360 or Nintendo Wii (or Vectrex???)
Classic Game Room HD reviews the rare NEO-GEO CDZ video game console from SNK. The NeoGeo CDZ plays Neo Geo CD games but has much faster loading times, as demonstrated in this video. This is a hardware review showing the Neo-Geo CDZ game system next to the Neo Geo CD game system showing the difference between the units. Neo Geo CDZ was released in 1996 in Japan and is a rarity in the US which jacks up the price tag of an already pricey 1990's game console.
Classic Game Room HD reviews SMART PRIZE TIME, a claw prize game found at a rest stop on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Claw games are featured in movies like Toy Story and are a fun way to spend hard earned money on cheap toys that you don't need. Test your skills with the claw, a weak metallic contraption that barely lifts whatever toys you grab with it. Smart Prize Time has music, a joystick, timer and a button. The game is full of toys like teddy bears and Big Bird stuffed animals. Yay! Games like Smart Prize Time can be found at rest stops, fair grounds and carnivals all over the world! Although not a traditional video game, this review reviews the Smart Prize Time machine.
Classic Game Room HD reviews FLYING POWER DISC for Neo-Geo CD from Data East. This is a combination sports / fighting game for the SNK Neo Geo CD where players throw a frisbee disc at their opponent hoping to hit targets behind them. Rich with cheesy early 1990's style, Flying Power Disc is remarkably fun and easy to pick up and play. This CGR review of Flying Power Disc from 1993 for Neo Geo CD has gameplay from Flying Power Disc on Neo-Geo showing game play in action. One or two players. The Western release of this game is called Windjammers for Neo Geo, it is on MVS.
Classic Game Room HD reviews VIRTUA RACING DELUXE for Sega 32x from 1994. This driving game works on the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive with the 32X expansion device and delivers an amazingly smooth and playable version of the 1992 arcade racer, Virua Racer! Although Virtua Racer was available for the Sega Genesis it was choppy and sluggish. This 32X version blows it away with five tracks, three cars and excellent gameplay that runs smooth with quick response times. This CGR review of Virua Racing Deluxe for Sega 32x has gameplay from the Sega Genesis Mega Drive driving game, Virtua Racing Deluxe showing game play in action.
