Classic Game Room HD reviews LOTUS II R.E.C.S. for Sega Genesis / Sega Mega Drive from 1993. Drive one of three Lotus vehicles including the Esprit and Elan through a variety of courses and environments. This may seem like a Sega Out Run clone but it does have some charm all to itself. For one thing the RECS in Lotus II RECS stands for something, Race Environment Construction System. That's right kids, design your own race course (sort of) with a variety of factors and environmental decisions. The gameplay in Lotus II R.E.C.S. for Sega Genesis is nearly identical to Outrun except for the fact that you don't crash every time you hit something. Lotus II on Megadrive is forgiving in many respects. You can run through rocks, trees and other cars but they will slow you down and prevent you from reaching checkpoints in time. Published by Electronic Arts, Lotus II RECS is entertaining arcade style race driving for your Genesis with some engaging features and excellent music.

Sears was the place for electronics in the late '70s (well, Sears and Radio Shack) and they worked with Atari to launch their own classy game system, the Sears Video Arcade! Enjoy Tele-Games brand games like Tanks-Plus which is basically Combat except it has the Sears brand on it!! The Sears Video Arcade has that familiar Atari 6-switch styling but with Tele-Games branding on top, Video Arcade branding on the front, a rich walnet-style wood grain finish and silver trim. Serious collectors should enjoy having this amazing piece of video game history in their collection, and it plays great games!!
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR hats & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com Classic Game Room reviews FAR CRY 3: BLOOD DRAGON for Xbox 360, also available for PlayStation 3 PS3 and PC! All hail the '80s action movies like Predator, The Terminator, Robocop, Tron, Rambo, Die Hard and The Karate Kids because it's Hot Shots Part Deux the video game, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon! This parody of the post-nuclear war '80s vision of the future is a standalone downloadable game that plays like a smaller, sillier Far Cry 3. Basically, the designers used the same assets and made everything look like Tron. Enjoy an amazing musical score reminiscent of Aliens, The Terminator and Predator as well as Michael Biehn's hilarious acting, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is rad!
