Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Einhander, a side-scrolling shoot-'em-up developed and published in 1998 by Square for the Playstation. What starts as a fairly standard shooter gets an inventive twist with the acquisition of weaponry liberated from (read: blown off of) enemy vessels. Grab cannons, vulcans, homing missiles, and more to blast you way through slews of oncoming fire in one of the rare non-RPG Square offerings. This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of Einhander for the Playstation and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

Eco Fighters review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Eco Fighters (developed and published by Capcom) for arcades, also part of Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 for PS2 and Capcom Classics Collection: Remixed for PSP. BY YOUR POWERS COMBINED, I AM A SHMUP THAT INNOVATES! Apparently you need five multi-ethnic kids and some costume jewelry to make strides in the side-scrolling shoot-'em-up world. Eco Fighters combines ecological awareness with some seriously impressive shooting action, offset by the occasional melee bludgeoning. In a SHMUP! I KNOW! This video review features video gameplay footage of Eco Fighters for PS2 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

Sleeping Dogs review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Sleeping Dogs for XBOX 360 developed by United Front Games and published by Square Enix. Sleeping Dogs was originally part of the True Crime franchise, but the publishing and development of the game had many difficulties getting off the ground and was finally canceled. Publisher/Developer Square Enix would later purchase the intellectual property from Activision who would then release it as Sleeping Dogs -- independent of the True Crime name. Sleeping dogs holds many similarities to the Grand Theft Auto franchise by sporting a large city to roam while seeking entertainment through action and combat. Also like GTA, there is a cinematic feel with high presentation through voice acting and fantastic character animations to bring the game alive even when not engaged in the shoot 'em up action. This video review features video gameplay footage of Sleeping Dogs for the XBOX 360 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Steve.

Three Wonders review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Three Wonders (developed and published by Capcom) for arcades, also part of Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 for PS2 and Capcom Classics Collection: Remixed for PSP. Three wonders? More like "Three games that look really, really good for 1991, being jammed together into one arcade machine." More more like, "An action platformer and a shoot-'em-up that fit together logically, accompanied by a sugar-coated puzzle game that's like Bomberman with more cute animals and fewer explosions." I think I'm leaning toward that last one, personally. This video review features video gameplay footage of Three Wonders for PS2 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

Last Duel review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Last Duel (developed and published by Capcom) for arcades, also part of Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 for PS2 and Capcom Classics Collection: Remixed for PSP. The year is 1988. Vertical-scrolling SHMUPS are well-established, and - barring a few interesting outliers (like Gun.Smoke, which I will mention every chance I get because it's awesome) - they all seem to be aircraft-based. Well, in the case of Last Duel, it's half-right: It's partly a spacefaring, barrel-rolling shoot-'em-up, and it's partly a vehicular, gravity-fearing romp through alien terrain, full of obstacles to leap and a very naked queen. This video review features video gameplay footage of Last Duel for PS2 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

1943: The Battle Of Midway review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of 1943: The Battle Of Midway as included in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet for the PlayStation 3 developed and published by Capcom. Originally released in 1987, 1943: The Battle Of Midway is a sequel to the 1984 classic 1942. The game transports players back to World War II, casting them as American pilots at war with the Japanese. The gameplay is a remarkably honed shoot 'em up, renowned for its sharp and fast-paced gameplay, and its influence on gaming is as wide as the Pacific. This video review features video gameplay footage of 1943: The Battle Of Midway as included in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Gun.Smoke review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Gun.Smoke as included in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet for the PlayStation 3 developed and published by Capcom. Gun.Smoke is a shoot 'em up without a plane or spaceship. Instead, you're on foot. That alone made the game unique, as does its theme. Billy Bob is a bounty hunter from the old West, tracking down villains in dusty prairies, indian reservations and lawless towns. Similar to another Capcom shooter, the classic Commando, Gun.Smoke takes the top-down shooter to the great frontier for a classic arcade experience. This video review features video gameplay footage of Gun.Smoke as included in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Gokujo Parodius review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts & hats! http://www.CGRstore.com Classic Game Room reviews GOKUJO PARODIUS from Konami for the Super Famicom, a colorful side scrolling shoot 'em up from 1994! Play as the Vic Viper from Gradius, Twinbee, Little Dracula, a fish, baby, penguin or crazy girl riding a missile (I'm sure these all have names), Parodius is wacky, hilarious, challenging fun and fans of SHMUPS and other arcade style space ship shooters want to play this game! Nintendo Super Famicom visuals are crisp and colorful although it frequently runs into slowdown when gameplay gets really frantic. Music and sound are silly and filled with marches, waltzes and out-of-place tunes that work perfectly when illustrating dancing panda bears, pirate mermaids and laser firing chickens. Gokujo Parodius video review features Super Famicom Parodius gameplay in full HD action from Classic Game Room!

Vulgus review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Vulgus as included in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet for the PlayStation 3 developed and published by Capcom. Before Okami, before Resident Evil, before Mega Man, before Commando...there was Vulgus. It was Capcom's very first game, the debut of one of the biggest names in gaming. Like many games of its time, Vulgus is a vertical shoot 'em up in which players fly a spaceship and shoot things. In that respect, there's not much unique about it. But what it lacks in originality, Vulgus makes up for with strong gameplay and a unique hook that requires precise aiming. Occasionally, enemy squadrons will form a straight line. If you're good, a single well-placed missile can take out the entire line and earn you big points. This video review features video gameplay footage of Vulgus as included in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Thunder Spirits review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts & gear! http://www.CGRstore.com Classic Game Room reviews THUNDER SPIRITS for Super Nintendo from Seika and TechnoSoft released in 1991 for the SNES!! This is the Nintendo version of Thunder Force III, or more likely the SNES version of Thunder Force AC which is the arcade version of Techno Soft's Thunder Force 3. Thunder Spirits is a side scrolling shoot 'em up (or SHMUP) for the 16-bit SNES which is very similar to Thunder Force III except with the SNES music style, no choosing levels and a few other differences.

Nemesis review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Nemesis for the Game Boy developed by Konami and published by Ultra Games. Nemesis is an old-school shoot 'em up, a scrolling trip through the dangerous annals of space. This was the first Gradius game released for a handheld, not to mention a shooter that was a little too complex for its platform. Nemesis is best played on a later Game Boy model or on the Super NES with a Super Game Boy. But however you play it, you're getting a top-shelf SHMUP in the Gradius spirit. The levels are based on those from the original Gradius, slightly shortened and condensed for portable play. For its platform, the game is also impressive graphically. This video review features video gameplay footage of Nemesis for the Game Boy and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
