Classic Game Room reviews KNUCKLES CHAOTIX for Sega 32X from Team Sonic and Sega from 1995. Knuckles' Chaotix is a Sega 32X exclusive that works with the Sega Genesis (aka Sega Mega Drive) and 32X adapter for superior gameplay. Knuckles Chaotix throws a unique spin on the familiar Sonic the Hedgehog style of gameplay by having players control two characters at the same time connected together by a rubber band style force field thing. This gameplay hook has you reaching levels and whipping each other around the screen in 2D awesomeness never seen on the 16-bit Sega Genesis, it needed the power of Cosmic Carnage and the Sega 32X! Knuckles Chaotix is a 2D platformer side scroller with 3D style running section to collect Chaos Rings. This CGR review of Knuckles' Chaotix has gameplay from Knuckles Chaotix on Sega Genesis with 32X adapter showing Sega Megadrive 32X game play in action during a video review.

Classic Game Room reviews the NINTENDO DS LITE handheld video game console! From Nintendo, the DS Lite has brighter screens and weighs less than the previous model but retains the Gameboy Advance slot that was f----n removed in the Nintendo DSi. What!? They removed one of the best features?? Yes, yes the did. And the penalty is that CGR recommends the Nintendo DS Lite because of the MASSIVE library of awesome (and many not-so-awesome) games available on Nintendo DS and Gameboy Advance media. The Nintendo DS (all models) have sole more than 115 million units putting it up there with Playstation 2 PS2 numbers. The PSP isn't the portable Playstation 2, this thing is. The DS had a wide, eclectic array of software titles available for it. Awesome Nintendo exclusives, RPG games, adventure, 2D side scrollers, strategy and puzzle games. It's built like a tank, has excellent battery life and even comes with a sometimes-cool touchscreen. This CGR review of the Nintendo DS Lite has footage of the DS showing what this piece of Nintendo hardware looks like in HD video.

Classic Game Room reviews DARIUS TWIN for Super Nintendo from 1991. This is a horizontally scrolling side scroller SHMUP for the Super Nintendo from Taito. One of many in the popular line of Darius games, blast sea creatures, lobsters, fish, underwater alien space ships and octopi into bits with your space ship. Play one player or 2 player co-op on screen at the same time. Darius is challenging and plays well on the 16 bit SNES, is it one of the best SNES shmup shooters? CGR doesn't care for the music or bland visuals that much. If you played Darius Gaiden on the Sega Saturn you may not either, but the gameplay is somewhat similar. Power up your space ship and blast everything that moves, collect weapon and shield upgrades and rack up arcade points. This CGR review of Darius Gaiden has gameplay from Darius Gaiden on SNES showing game play from this side scrolling SHMUP in action.

Classic Game Room reviews PULSTAR for Neo Geo CD. This side scrolling horizontal SHMUP from 1995 is a popular, beloved side scroller for the Neo Geo but does it live up to the hype and the high price tag? Pilot a space ship against waves of enemies, dodge alien laser blasts, mechanized crushy things and tentacles, you know the drill.... if it moves shoot it. Fans of the R-Type series should love Pulstar. The oversized, slowly moving space ship flies through tunnels and environments on its way to fight end bosses and mindless waves of enemies. Pulstar stands out because of the crushing difficulty and amazing visuals. Graphically this is one beautiful game with some stunning animations and art design. Although Pulstar does suffer from slowdown and horrible loading time, if its sci fi space ship shooter action you crave then Pulstar has got what you need. This CGR review of Pulstar has gameplay from Pulstar on Neo Geo CD showing Pulstar shmup game play in action.

Classic Game Room reviews Veks and Silence for Xbox 360, available for download from XBLA in the Xbox Live Marketplace under the "indie" games section. Indie!! Oh I love that marketing term, this game is so indie it makes me want to smoke and hang out in expensive, corporate franchise coffee shops. You can fight the man by giving indie companies like Microsoft money to play this game because it's available on their download service. Well, indie or non-indie, Veks and Silence is an over the top, explosive 2D style platformer where you play as a violent anti-hero named Veks who spends his days slaughtering waves of mindless zombies and other enemies. Veks has four weapons to choose from can also power up a Rage meter for temporary invincibility and super-power. This CGR review of Veks and Silence has gameplay from Veks and Silence on XBLA Xbox 360 showing game play from veks and Silence, a 2-D style side scroller with lots of guns and violence. The game is a bit jerky in places, more than it needs to be. But the affordable cost of the game, awesome music and playable controls make it worth a look for side scrolling platformer fans looking for a run and gun shooter.

Classic Game Room reviews SHORTS for Nintendo DS, the Shorts movie was directed by Robert Rodriguez who also directed El Mariachi, Desperado, Spy Kids and Sin City. Shorts is a very average side scrolling platformer for the DS where you play primarily with the D-Pad and Nintendo DS buttons. This CGR review of Shorts the video game has gameplay from Shorts filmed in HD showing the video game play in action. Defeat enemies by shooting them, jumping on them and a variety of other methods. Play as characters from the movie and draw lines on the screen at times to climb on. Watch out for moving platforms, etc... Shorts is aimed at a younger audience and should appeal to kids who are into the film, parents should feel warm and fuzzy about the non-objectionable gameplay. Shorts is rated E 10 and packs some fairly good side scrolling 2D action (the backgrounds are 3D rendered but the game is basically a 2-D side scroller for the DS.)

Classic Game Room HD reviews ALIENS IN THE ATTIC for Nintendo DS, based on the movie with the same name. This video game is also available for Playstation 2 PS2 and Nintendo Wii. This CGR review of Aliens in the Attic has gameplay recorded from Nintendo DS in HD. Aliens in the Attic is a side scrolling platformer for Nintendo DS where you play as characters from the film and battle aliens, robots and other stuff. It has a slightly old school style reminiscent of the classic side scrollers like Super Mario Bros. and Sonic the Hedgehog or Contra. Fans of arcade style side scrollers may find it a bit easy, it is aimed at a younger audience. The game has 5 environments with 5 levels each, 25 total. Upgrade your weapons and enjoy a rockin' 80's style synth soundtrack. Not a bad game but it starts slow and takes a while to get into the meat of the gameplay. End bosses are like SHMUP end bosses-lite. Play Aliens in the Attic on DS with the d-pad and buttons or dpad and stylus. This CGR review of Aliens in the Attic reviews the movie based video game with game play, Aliens in the Attic.

Classic Game Room HD reviews YOSHI'S ISLAND for Super Nintendo SNES from 1995! Also known as Super Mario World 2, Yoshi's Island is an amazing 16-bit side scroller with incredibly deep gameplay with intelligent design that separates it from the normal side scroller. You play as a variety of Yoshis (I didn't know there was more than one!) who are trying to rescue baby Mario's twin brother Luigi! Luigi was kidnapped!? Amber Alert! Yoshis embark on the adventure of a lifetime through 40 some stages packed with hidden items, coins, flowers and bad guys. Jump, hop, run and eat enemies. After eating them Yoshi can turn them into eggs which he shoots at objects or just spit them out as projectiles. Very clever! While it may look like a children's game Yoshi's Island is much more. Amazing visuals, well produced music and gameplay that is miles ahead of most games makes this one a must play for fans of Mario games and side scrollers. This CGR review of Yoshi's Island has gameplay from the SNES game cartridge, Yoshi's Island showing game play from Super Nintendo in action during the review of Yoshi's Island, Super Mario World 2.

A 2009 CGR Must Buy! Classic Game Room HD reviews TOKYO BEAT DOWN for the Nintendo DS. This Tokyo Beat Down review has gameplay footage of Tokyo Beat Down side scrolling beat 'em up from Atlus for the Nintendo DS. Do you like Streets of Rage and Lethal Weapon? BUY THIS GAME. Play the Beast Cops and clean up the streets of Tokyo from a devious criminal plot! Lewis Cannon is the best video game character since Dig Dug. Sporting an early 90's mullet, cigarettes and bad attitude, this game packs laugh after laugh and has a very clever and entertaining plot. In the style of early 90's side scrolling beat em ups, Tokyo Beat Down delivers solid gameplay, hysterical one liners and memorable characters (Plot Progressing Officer!). CGR thinks this is the "What's Up, Tiger Lily" of videog games. It feels like an old school coin-op 2D side scroller but with a reworked English translation to make it hysterical. I don't think that's quite the case, but it feels like it, and it feels good. You can't go wrong with this game. Sarcasm, dry humor, intelligent writing and straight up action packed gameplay. Tokyo Beat Down is one of the best games on the Nintendo DS and an instant classic. A must have. Classic Game Room approved. Mullets, cops, pimp tunes and power up hamburgers. Love it! YOU BEAT THEM DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Classic Game Room HD reviews Nintendo DS games as a Nintendo DS reviewer reviewing Tokyo Beat Down with gameplay showing the action, graphics and gameplay.

Classic Game Room reviews BEN 10 ALIEN FORCE for Nintendo Wii video game console. Based on the popular Cartoon Network TV show, Ben 10 is a side scrolling beat 'em up video game with a 3D style and multiple character changing gameplay elements. This CGRHD review of Ben 10 Alien Force has gameplay footage from Ben 10 Alien Force on Wii (also available on Nintendo DS), showing Spidermonkey at the Waterfall, how to use Big Chill and Jet Ray and Kevin and more. How does Ben 10 Alien Force compare to other side scroller beat em ups like Streets of Rage? Your character has an Omnitirix to change into monster or alien forms (whatever they are, I don't watch the show). This is a fun game and sells at a value price, it may not be the best video game ever made but it keeps to a relatively faithful 2D side scrolling beatem up style while adding some new elements. Plays acceptably with the Wii controller and nunchuck. You can also disable the motion controls which is what I did. Ben 10 is rated E for everyone and is clearly a kids game, but older games looking for some new games on the Wii can find enjoyment with it as well. Classic Game Room reviews Wii games as a Wii reviewer reviewing games like Ben 10 Alien Force on Nintendo Wii published by D3.

Watch in High Definition! Classic Game Room reviews the original Sega Genesis Model 1 from 1989! When the first 16-bit Sega MegaDrive appeared the world was rocked to its pathetic 8-bit core by an additional 8 more bits of awesome. CGRHD reviews old school hardware and the Sega Genesis is one of our favorite video game systems ever made. Is the Sega Genesis the best video game console created by man (yes)? Watch and you be the judge (yes is the final answer, no judging). With awesome games like Strider, Sonic the Hedgehog and Thunder Force II, the Genesis was the mad fresh gaming system to own in 1990. This Classic Game Room review looks at some of the differences between the model 1 Mega Drive and the model 2 Megadrive. The headphone jack that outputs stereo sound, the composite video wire that sends composite video to your TV. The ability to modify your Sega Genesis for S-video gaming or component video gaming. The 16bit Sega Genesis has a huge variety of games available for it and playing them in stereo with your Model 1 MD is the best way to enjoy side scrollers and SHMUPS. Play Herzog Zwei and MUSHA on the Sega Genesis in high definition (according to the claim on the Genesis, although it really isn't in HD). Classic Game Room loves the "Genny" and owns several. Check out the CGR Model 1 Sega Genesis here on this awesome classic old school video game review show reviewing video game hardware. Learn how to hook up a Sega Genesis to an HDTV and get your Genesis to play stereo!
