Classic Game Room reviews ZANAC for NES from FCI and Compile, a vertical scrolling space ship shooter released in 1986 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Zanac is a SHMUP with awesome music and a unique weapons power up system that defies ordinary. Collect numbers 1-7 (and upgrade them) to waste waves of enemies that come at you in oddball formations while spewing bullets all over the screen. Zanac is not for the casual shooter fan or those looking for a relaxing game. The adaptive A.I. learns how you play and evidently hates you (or at least it hates me) because it just goes crazy and fills the screen with enemies. SHMUP spaceship shooter fans may dig the challenge and unorthodox gameplay in Zanac that makes it unique in a sea of similar games. It may be rough around the edges but does pack cool ideas, solid gameplay and great music. This CGR review of Zanac for NES has Zanac gameplay from FCI and Compiles showing Nintendo Zanac game play in HD action. Zanac can also be found on the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console for download.

Classic Game Room reviews ALPHA MISSION II for PS3 from SNK Playmore. This vertical scrolling SHMUP shooter was originally released for Neo-Geo MVS and NeoGeo AES in 1991 and Neo-Geo CD in 1994. Give the finger to overpriced eBay copies and head on over to Playstation Network for an affordable download and an amazing videogame. Waste waves of alien bad guys with your space ship outfitted with a variety of armor / weapon power ups. Cool armor collection system, G (gold) purchases and amazing graphics and sound will bombard your senses with sheer awesomeness. This CGR review of Alpha Mission II has gameplay from Alpha Mission 2 on Playstation 3 PS3 showing Alpha Mission 2 game play from SNK in HD action.

Gradius III review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Gradius III for Super NES. Speed-up & Missile & Double & Laser & Option & Shield & whatever the heck that exclamation point is at the end. You even get to choose! Everyone remembers the progression, and how best to utilize it to blast apart the waves of enemy craft that beseige you as you innocently try to make your way to the right of the screen. That's not a crime, is it? So why are all these Moai heads all up in your grill? I ask you! This video review features video gameplay footage of Gradius III for SNES and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

1942: Joint Strike review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of 1942: Joint Strike for XBox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. The year is 1942. No it isn't, it's 1984. Anyway, there's this really awesome vertical-scrolling shmup in your local arcade, gobbling up quarters left and right as players shoot their way through a moderately anachronistic Pacific Theater during World War II. Just 24 years later, Backbone musters their spinal fortitude to produce an HD reimagining of the Capcom classic, with more power-ups, more action, and more absurdly huge aircraft. This video review features video gameplay footage of 1942: Joint Strike for XBox Live Arcade and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

Bio-Hazard Battle Review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Bio-Hazard Battle, developed and published by Sega for the Genesis. I definitely hate to look bad when I'm reviewing a game. Like, for example, when I can't get past the second friggin' level. This is the case with Bio-Hazard Battle, Sega's original side-scrolling shooter set in a blown-out, devastated landscape filled with creatures that look like something out of a petri dish in your high school biology class. This video review features video gameplay footage of Virtua Fighter 2 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Eric.

He sets off into the ever-expanding checkerboard world of Fantasy Land to discover that the place is overrun with bad guys.

Crack Down Review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Crack Down, developed and published by Sega for the Genesis. It's a race against the clock as you control either Ben or Andy, two time bomb specialists, as they shoot and bomb their way through Mr. X's headquarters. It takes skill and speed to charge through this game, which is much like a combination between Bomberman and the original Metal Gear for the NES. This video review features video gameplay footage of Crack Down and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Eric.

Alien Storm Review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Alien Storm, developed and published by Sega for the Genesis. Side-scrolling beat-em-up gameplay returns to the Genesis, this time in a sort of rehash of Golden Axe, but with flamethrowers and an alien menace instead of mythical monsters. Along with the typical beat up the bad guys stages, Alien Storm throws a curveball with run-and-shoot stages and a sort of Area 52-style stage where you blast away at enemies in a first-person perspective. This video review features video gameplay footage of Alien Storm and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Eric.

Radiant Silvergun Review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Radiant Silvergun, a proto-bullet hell shoot-'em-up developed by Treasure and published in 2011 by Microsoft Studios for XBox Live Arcade. Some games more than others deserve HD remakes, deserve a second chance at notoriety, deserve to be appreciated by more folks than the old Sega Saturn could reach. Radiant Silvergun is one of those games. The advanced Calculus of shmups, you begin the game outfitted with seven different weapons systems, and have to cut a swath through scores of hostile craft just to BE ATTITUDE FOR GAINS. No, I have no idea what that means either. But it's shiny! This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of Radiant Silvergun for the XBox 360 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
