This CGRHD review of World Grand Prix on Sega Master System has gameplay footage from World Grand Prix Sega video game cartridge from 1986. It has an arcade style which is very different from Sega's Out Run and Hang On, looks good, plays well and is a lot of fun. Create your own driving courses in World Grand Prix and race on them. Tons of fun, easy to find and very affordable. There are lots of F1 style race car driving games out there, but this one is a must play for GT fans, racing fans, F-1 fans and all kinds of sports car enthusiasts.
Classic Game Room HD - EA SPORTS TIGER WOODS PGA TOUR 10 for Wii review. Tiger Woods Golf 10 for Wii reviewed by Classic Game Room shows gameplay from EA Sports Tiger Woods Golf PGA Tour 2010 with game play during golfing in the video game. Tiger Woods 10 for Wii has 7 new courses including Bethpage Black and Oakmont Country Club, host of the 2007 US Open. The US Open can be played in this Wii game, as can frisbee golf! Yes, disc golf is here and play frisbee on the courses in the game. Graphics are imporved, new online gameplay modes and tournaments to compete in. Better menu music than Tiger Woods 09, more courses and outfits. Gameplay is pretty much the same but more of a good thing is a great thing and while CGR scores a triple bogey, EA scores an Eagle with Tiger Woods 10 (ha ha ha! get it!!) Classic Game Room HD reviews Tiger Woods and other Wii video games as a Wii reviewer reviewing Wii games for Nintendo Wii.
Classic Game Room HD reviews the VECTREX video game console from GCE (General Consumer Electric) from 1982. The Vectrex is unique in that is plays video games on its own screen with vector based graphics giving a very crisp image that fans of old school games from the late 70's and early 80's should enjoy. The Vectrex has some excellent games like Berzerk and Scramble, but not as many as the venerable Atari 2600 or ColecoVision. New games are being released for the Vectrex from homebrew developers and the game system is surprisingly easy to find and collect today thanks to eBay. Vectrex games come with an overlay that fits over the screen and gives a splash of color and lists the controls. Classic Game Room HD reviews new and classic games, we're now adding Vectrex video game reviews to the video game review show. For retro gaming fans and old school gamers the Vectrex is a unique and fun collectible that takes up a bit of space but it's worth it!
Classic Game Room HD reviews POOL HALL PRO for Nintendo Wii. Shoot pool in arcade mode, exhibition or tournament against a variety of opponents (who are invisible!!). Pool games can be hit or miss depending on the controls, and Pool Hall Pro plays quite well even if the visuals aren't up to current standards. Adjust your shot, choose where to hit the cue ball and fire away. The ball positioning and strategy used in real pool is all here and physics are done well. This CGRHD review of Pool Hall Pro has gameplay footage from Pool Hall Pro on Wii showing the game play as the pool video game is reviewed.
Classic Game Room HD reviews GRAVITON for iPod Touch and iPhone. This game uses the accelerometer in your iPod or iPhone to tilt and glide the space ship (or space tug boat) through tight spaces in a post-apocalyptic world with a giant bomb like powered thing attached to it! Beware of lava, banging into things and being crushed. This CGRHD review of Graviton for iPod has gameplay from Graviton which is a video game app available at iTunes, published by Chillingo. Nice art design, graphics and music round out this sci-fi game with tilting controls which is really aimed at fans of tilt and glide accelerometer based iPod games. I wish it would have buttons but the whole point is to gently glide your ship through tight spaces and solve a few puzzle like situations along the way.
Classic Game Room HD reviews CHOPLIFTER for Sega Master System from 1985. Originally from Broderbund, Choplifter can be found on just about every video game system and computer platform from back in the day. Pilot your rescue helicopter into combat situation and carry hostages back to safety without being shot down or bombed. This CGRHD review of Choplifter on Sega Master System has gameplay from Choplifter recorded from the Sega SMS showing this side scrolling action retro old school classic video game being played. The music in this version of Choplifter is very good, as are the graphics and gameplay. The cartridge suffers from a lot of flicker but thats really the only problem, Choplifter is a classic arcade style game from the 80s and the Sega Master System maga cartridge has a great version of it. Classic Game Room played the game on a Sega Genesis Model 1 with Power Base Converter. Choplifter and other Sega Master System games are reviewed by Classic Game Room, a Sega Master System reviewer reviewing classic retro gaming from SMS.
Classic Game Room HD reviews PIRATES VS. NINJAS DODGEBALL for Nintendo Wii! Pirates, Ninjas, dodgeball!? Heck yeah! Yar! Play as Pirates, Ninjas, Monsters, Zombies, Aliens and Robots in this fun pick up and play action game for the Wii. Excellent controls, fun characters and entertaining single player and multiplayer gameplay make this game a fun party game. This CGRHD review of Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball has gameplay footage from Nintendo Wii showing Pirates vs. Ninjas being played for a review. CGR reviewed this game well because it is fun, clever and fast. Harder than it looks though, even though the controls for Wii are responsive with the Nunchuk and Wiimote you'll have quite a challenge ahead of you facing opponents in standard dodgeball or dodgebrawl game play modes. It's always fun to see a dodgeball video game where you dodge ball plural being hurled at you in this video game. CGRHD reviews Wii games like Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball for Wii as a Wii reviewer which reviewed this game!
Classic Game Room HD reviews KNIGHTS IN THE NIGHTMARE for Nintendo DS from Sting, published by Atlus. This is a very enigmatic game that defies most genres, although it could be classified as a combination real time strategy game, turn based strategy game, RPG and puzzle game mixed with some SHMUP bullet hell elements. Yes thats a lot going on at once, and this game has a lot going on at once. This CGRHD review of KNIGHTS IN THE NIGHTMARE has gameplay footage recorded from Atluss Knights in the Nightmare on Nintendo DS in HD showing game play in action. You control a wisp with the Nintendo DS stylus and guide it around the top screen while actually pressing on the bottom screen. Collect items and attack enemies with them in both chaos and law orders. Level characters up with experience points, recruit knights and follow a storyline rich with detail and creative art direction. Knights in the Nightmare is a unique game that may be a diamond in the rough for your Nintendo DS collection.
Classic Game Room HD reviews CHOPLIFTER! for Atari 7800 ProSystem! This side scrolling shmup style game mixed with a rescue mission has intentionally difficult shooting controls to challenge the gamer to dodge or fire at enemy aircraft and hot air balloons while saving hostages and transporting them back to a post office to be parcel posted home. Remember kids, when you rescue hostages from evil villains you have to use regular mail or Priority Mail, not media mail! Humans do not count as media. Choplifter was designed by Dan Gorlin and originally published by Broderbund. This version on Atari 7800 is not one of the better versions of this fun old school retro video game but still entertaining to revisit (it's my game from back in the day!). This CGRHD review of Choplifter has gameplay from the video game Choplifter on Atari 7800 from 1987 showing the helicopter shooting bad guys, landing on rescued hostages and saving them too! Too bad it doesn't have more than one level! The maximum score is 64. If you want a real score then get another version of Choplifter (like the Sega Master System version). Choplifter! should not be confused with Chopper Command from Activision, they are 2 different games.
Classic Game Room HD reviews PROTOTYPE from Radical and Activision for Xbox 360, also available for Playstation 3 PS3. This Prototype review has gameplay video from Prototype video game showing game play in HD as CGR wreaks havoc in a well rendered New York City. Drive tanks down Wall Street, now that's payback for your 401k! Alex Mercer is the prototype created by a horrible government conspiracy. Seek revenge against your creators and pretty much whatever or whoever gets in your way. Consume other people and morph into their form, throw taxis at people and jump off the Empire State Building. Prototype is darned fun and a violent, explody, bangy, crashy joy to play. It runs in High Definition and the Xbox 360 version has achievement points for Prototype. Earn weapon and jump upgrades (and more) and have a great time with side missions, challenges and other chaos that you create in Prototype! CGRHD reviews Xbox 360 games as an Xbox 360 reviewer reviewing video games like Prototype.
Classic Game Room HD reviews AMIDAR for Atari 2600, originally from Konami and Stern in 1981 for the arcades. Amidar is a fun and simple old school style Atari VCS game cartridge (it's a Parker Brothers game cartridge) and packs hours of fun in the most basic visuals ever. You play as a gorilla vs. warriors or a paint roller vs. pigs. Yes, awesome. Fans of old school retro gaming will love Amidar, it's easy to find and collect today and is challenging to master. This CGRHD review of Amidar has gameplay footage from Amidar for Atari 2600 and shows the 1980's classic video game in action. If you like Pac Man, Donkey Kong or Lock n' Chase give this game a try. Classic Game Room HD recommends Amidar.
Classic Game Room HD reviews STEAMBOT CHRONICLES BATTLE TOURNAMENT for Sony PSP from Irem, published by Atlus. Take command of a Trotmobile and play an adventure game mixed with a battle tournament fighting game where mechs face off in the arena! Steambot Chronicles has some cool concepts and good fighting controls as well as multiplayer mayhem, it lacks a bit of the polish found in many titles but works quite well and has high replay value. You can play with up to four players from one UMD disc, Sony PSP game cartridge thingy. Build, modify and customize your battle robots in Steambot Chronicles, arm them with flamethrowers and guns, swords and saws. Earn money and experience, fight your way through tournaments and get animated chicks to like you. It has RPG elements and you can choose what things you say at times, although I have the feeling the outcome is usually the same. The end result is you bashing other robots into a heap of smoldering metal. This CGRHD review of Steambot Chronicles Battle Tournament on PSP has gameplay footage from Steambot Chronicles Battle Tournament showing combat, robot modifications and the style of the adventure storyline.
