Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Castle Crashers by The Behemoth for Xbox Live Arcade. In the early days of flash gaming, a little company named The Behemoth was founded out of the success of a metal-slug-esque side scroller called Alien Hominid. This studio created massive waves in the indie developer community with a small story about an alien trying to escape secret service agents. The Behemoth followed up in August of 2008 with a smash hit multiplayer beat 'em up called Castle Crashers, which has earned its place as one of the most entertaining and exciting Xbox Live Arcade games to date, having sold over two million copies by the end of 2010. This video review features video gameplay footage of Castle Crashers and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Jen.
Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Batman for the Nintendo Entertainment System from Sunsoft. The Dark Knight hits the NES with a flurry of fists and batarangs in this intense 2d platformer from 1989, tied in with the release of the film by Tim Burton that came out the same year. This classic side scroller has you in control of Batman himself, traveling through five difficult stages until a final showdown with the Joker. This review features Batman gameplay footage and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.
Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Captain America: Super Soldier from Griptonite and SEGA for the Nintendo DS. Unlike the console version, Captain America: Super Soldier is a side scroller on the Nintendo DS. This is a good thing, because mediocrity always goes down smoother in 2D. But even so, these level designs are completely vacant of thought. A few platforms here, a few enemy swarms there, repeat ad nauseam. That's all it takes to make some nondescript levels for a nice, nondescript game. The gameplay is pretty vacant, as well. You just hammer the Y button to perform combination attacks on what are mostly hapless and repetitive enemies. You learn some advanced maneuvers along the way, but I never had to use them. Honestly, I kind of stopped paying attention, anyways. This video review features video gameplay footage of Captain America: Super Soldier for the Nintendo DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

The Bloodrayne series has been around for about a decade and this new version strikes with throwback retro platformer gameplay like Castlevania.

Classic Game Room HD reviews LAST BATTLE for Sega Genesis (aka Sega Mega Drive). This is an earlier Genesis action game from 1989 and has many similarities to Altered Beast (and shares some music with Golden Axe). You play as Aarzak (pronounced Are-zak) and fight your way through 2-D side scrolling levels full of mindless enemies who attack you with knives and axes. Last Battle may not be the most exciting game on the Genesis but the packaging is cool and the writing is hilarious. Level Aarzak up and increase his health and defense. Fight end bosses that move back and forth and check out some bland parallax scrolling in the backgrounds. This CGR review of Last Battle has gameplay from Last Battle on Sega Genesis showing 16-bit video game play from the Mega Drive in action!
