Classic Game Room reviews AIR BUSTER for Sega Genesis. This Air Buster review on the Genny (aka Mega Drive / Megadrive) shows gameplay footage during the review reviewing this Japanese made SHMUP for the 16-bit wonder-console. In Air Buster you pilot a space ship against hordes of enemies and end bosses in this horizontal side scroller. This may not be one of the most famous games on the Sega Genesis but it is one of the better and more challenging SHMUPS on the console. This shoot 'em up has excellent gameplay, good music and a punishing difficulty level. If you are up for mass spaceship shooting carnage and 2D mayhem then Air Buster may be the game for you. This Sega Genesis cartridge was purchased used and cost CGR only $1. Classic Game Room is the retro reviewer reviewing shmups for the Sega Genesis and new games for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and Wii. Watch our several hundred reviews to learn about popular and obscure games and decide what you want to own in your classic and new video game collection!

Classic Game Room HD reviews SHINOBI for the Sega Master System video game console. This ninja action side scroller is the precurser to The Revenge of Shinobi and has slower gameplay and less enemies but retains that typical and familiar Shinobi charm. In part 1 we review the first couple levels and look at the layouts and music and gamplay of Shinobi. Only Classic Game Room can review Shinobi with the CGR eye to detail. Shinobi uses ninja magic and throws throwing stars in bonus stages, he fights the evil Zeed crime organization. Basically Shinobi is awesome and started out as an arcade game in 1987 from Sega. Shinobi is also available for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Commodore 64 and Atari ST computer. Classic Game Room brings you ninja sized retro video game reviews. Joe Musashi is bad-ass.

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 CYBORG JUSTICE on the Sega Genesis video game console system. Cyborg Justice on the Megadrive is much like Streets of Rage 2 or Double Dragon on the NES. It is a side scrolling adventure beat 'em up action game in the arcade style which allows one or two players. The problem here is that Streets of Rage has far better controls on the Mega Drive than this games does. CGRHD enjoyed Cyborg Justice for a few minutes but it does get repetitive. We'd rather be watching Barbarella, listening to Duran Duran or eating hamburgers (or all of the above at once) The game claims you can build 216 killer cyborg robots with things like power saws, flamethrowers and laser beams but poor, clumsy controls ruin them before you can use them to eviscerate your enemies. Are you looking for the best most exciting 2D side scroller on the Genesis? The Classic Game Room team recommends MAZIN SAGA MUTANT FIGHTER instead of Cyborg Justice, but that's just our opinion. Perhaps you like repetition and using the same controls over and over again on the MD gaming console. If that's the case then the gameplay will be right up your alley. Classic Game Room was the original classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999-2000, now on DVD. The reviews on the HD series are reviewing PS3, PS2, Genesis, NES, Atari and Xbox 360.

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 MOON PATROL for the Atari 2600 VCS video game console system. Moon Patrol is a classic arcade hit from the 1980's and a fantastic retro video game. This game is very unique and combines SHMUP elements with a horizontal side scroller, science fiction action adventure game and a vertical shooter like Space Invaders. Drive your moon buggy across the lunar surface and dodge craters, boulders, enemy space ships and tanks. Moon Patrol is awesome in every way, catch MOONPATROLFEVER baby! Why is this game not being remade into a new game with great gameplay on the Xbox 360 Live Arcade XBLA, Playstation 3 PS3 or Wii?

Classic Game Room season 1. January 15, 2000. Fight ninjas and play golf in this unique twist on an action side scroller and a sports game, NINJA GOLF for the Atari 7800 Pro System. You are a violent ninja with martial arts movie skills. Fight you way down the fairway to the green and battle ninjas, gophers (aka badgers in this review) giant frogs, sharks and dragons. Your weapons are a katana sword, throwing stars, driving wood and five iron. You don't put really, you actually fight a fire breathing dragon for the final, flawless victory in Ninja Golf. What an amazing fighting game. Be a warrier, be a golfer, be both. This game should be remade at once for the Playstation 3 PS3, Xbox 360 Live Arcade, Wii and the Sega Genesis immediately! This is an old school Classic Game Room video game review from the year 2000.

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 the HEAVY NOVA for the Sega Genesis video game system. This game puts the 16-bit Mega Drive through a painful experience as a killer robot warrior fights through a space station in this science fiction video game. It's a side scroller scrolling action game in 2d 2-d two dimensions, two dimentional. You pilot your cyborg machine bot, which they call a heavy doll (sounds kind of like some Blade Runner outtake to me) and encounter various enemies which you must destroy. This bizarre game is not very much fun nor does it have award winning gameplay, graphics or next gen sound. It's interesting and probably will not make it to the PS3, Playstation 3, Wii or Xbox 360 Live Arcade.... that's for sure. Here's a game for the garbage dumb bargain bin.

Part 2 of 2. 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 THE REVENGE OF SHINOBI for the Sega Genesis 16-bit video game system. The Sega Genesis game console (aka the Mega Drive Megadrive) is CHRHD's favorite gaming system, and it's no surprise that Revenge of Shinobi is one of our favorite games. This two parters looks at this amazing side scrolling action game and what sets it apart from the rest. What we need is more 2d two dimentional side scrollers on game systems like the Playstation 3 PS3 and Xbox 360 and Wii. Although some platformers and 2 D side scrollers have hit Xbox Live Arcade XBLA we want brand new ones that combine old school action with martial arts mayhem, great stories, fun gameplay and characters. In this video we talk about the different software versions and revisions of Shinobi, version 1.00, 1.01 and 1.02. This game is famous for its end bosses (end boss levels) with Spider Man, Batman and Godzilla. Spiderman was kept in all three versions, but Bat Man was removed in 1.01, and later Godzilla was also removed from version 1.02.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Genesis. In the first installment of Sega's flagship series featuring its eventually iconic mascot, Sonic's first adventure hit the Genesis in 1991 in legendary fashion. Sega pushed the speed limits of typical side scrollers of the era and introduced plenty of new gameplay mechanics and a vivid art style to set Sonic apart from its competitors. The end result was a truly classic game that would set the groundwork for an immense gaming legacy that still continues today. This review features Sonic the Hedgehog gameplay footage and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Released in 1991 and following the storyline from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, this is a brutally challenging side scroller that will truly test your Jedi skills. Controlling Luke Skywalker, you'll head out on your landspeeder to pick up R2-D2, get your lightsaber from Obi Wan Kenobi, meet up with Han Solo, fly around in the Millennium Falcon, rescue Princess Leia, and take out the Death Star. This review features Star Wars gameplay footage on the Nintendo Entertainment System and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Crush 3D review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Crush 3D from Zoe Mode and SEGA for the Nintendo 3DS. This 3D version is Crush's second attempt at glory. The original was a critically acclaimed PSP release, but it didn't fare as well with consumers. Crush 3D is a 3D platform/puzzler with marbles scattered among the platforms. You can rotate the camera into fixed viewpoints, which can reveal especially well hidden marbles or bonus objects. The hook is you can turn 3D things into these 2D things. So if you're looking at the level from the side and you crush it, the layers come together and the entire thing becomes a side scroller. As interesting as it sounds, Crush 3D is too clever for its own good. This video review features video gameplay footage of Crush 3D for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of the arcade game Jungle Hunt from Taito. Released to arcades in 1882 — I mean, 1982 — Jungle Hunt is an early platformer in the spirit of games like Donkey Kong and movies like The Birth of a Nation. You play as an affluent hunter named Sir Dudley Dashley. His lady has been kidnapped by savages, and that's when Dudley springs into action. In addition to beating Resident Evil 5 to the punch by almost 30 years, Jungle Hunt is also an old-school side-scroller comprised of four levels. Dudley has to swing across the jungle, swim through a crocodile-infested river and run up a crumbling mountain pass before finally getting to the savages, who have Penelope tied above a boiling pot of savage stew. This video review features video gameplay footage of the arcade game Jungle Hunt and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
