Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Excitebike from Nintendo for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Predating the X Games by a decade, Excitebike is a racing game featuring colorful, high-flying dirt bikes. You race through five tracks loaded with all sorts of ramps, bumps and mud pits, obstacles which make finishing the race within the required time limit an addictive exercise in old-school d-pad dexterity. Designed by Shigeru Miyamoto, Excitebike shares the same charm and irresistibly simple gameplay that made his Donkey Kong games so popular. This video review features video gameplay footage of Excitebike for the Nintendo Entertainment System and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Kid Chameleon for the Sega Genesis. A side scrolling cult classic with attitude, you play as the multi-faceted Kid Chameleon, who's "too tough to beat." Luckily you can change into a variety of suits to take on Heady Metal, an evil video game boss in a virtual reality game that is abducting anyone who plays it. With over 90 levels ahead of you, you can transform into a knight, samurai, hockey mask wearing axe murderer, skeleton tank driver, and plenty of other bizarre forms. This review features Kid Chameleon gameplay footage from the Sega Genesis Collection on the PlayStation 2, and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Ecco the Dolphin for the Sega Genesis by Novotrade International. Ecco is on a quest to rescue his pod from aliens in this innovative underwater platform game released in 1992. Its colorful art style and forward thinking interface design come together for a unique 16-bit gaming experience with an eco-friendly twist. And as cute as this little dolphin might be, underneath this game's appearance lurks a brutally challenging mind trip with lots of dark and intense atmosphere. This review features Ecco the Dolphin gameplay footage from the Sega Genesis Collection on the PlayStation 2, and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Ecco: The Tides of Time for the Sega Genesis by Novotrade International. Everyone's favorite time traveling dolphin returns in the sequel to the innovative underwater platformer, Ecco the Dolphin. In another quest to save the planet from the evil Vortex Queen, Ecco needs to navigate not only the depths of the ocean, but streams of time, in this surreal and still frustratingly difficult follow-up. Improved graphics and a few gameplay additions including animal transformations and the expansion of an already bizarre storyline will likely please fans of the series. This review features Ecco: The Tides of Time gameplay footage from the Sega Genesis Collection on the Playstation 2, and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Yogi Bear from Monkey Bar Games and D3 Publisher for the Nintendo Wii. Yogi Bear is a side-scrolling platform game, a truth which puts it ahead of the curve, quite frankly. It may be generic, but a generic 2D platformer will always be preferable to a generic 3D beat 'em up, a form kids' games take all too often. In fact, to its credit, Yogi Bear borrows as many conventions from games like New Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong Country Returns as it does picnic baskets. This video review features video gameplay footage of Yogi Bear for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Disney's Aladdin for the Sega Genesis by Virgin Interactive. One of many games based on the animated film, the Genesis version stands out with graphics and cel animation that looks straight out of the cartoon, and plenty of quality of side scrolling platform action to complement it. With the "help" of Abu and the Genie, you can control your favorite acrobatic scimitar swinging street rat in a glorious 16-bit quest to rescue Princess Jasmine from Jafar. This review features Disney's Aladdin gameplay footage and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

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.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Sonic Colors from SEGA for the Nintendo Wii. Released for the Wii and Nintendo DS, Sonic Colors shows some very smart game design — something we haven't been able to honestly say about a Sonic title since the 16-bit days. With this game, SEGA shows a clear understanding of what works within the Sonic formula, a grasp that hasn't been this clear since he was a 2D sprite. This video review features video gameplay footage of Sonic Colors for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Chronos Twins DX, a downloadable game from EnjoyUp for the Nintendo Wii's WiiWare service. Chronos Twins DX has a lot in common with the classic action-platform games of the past. You move through 2D environments while shooting at enemies and jumping on platforms. The game's hook is that your character exists in two separate times simultaneously. You're controlling one character, but you have to be cognizant of what you're doing in both the past and present. This video review features video gameplay footage of Chronos Twins DX for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Sonic and Tails are back at it again in another adventure, and this time Robonik's tricked an Echidna named Knuckles into helping keep Sonic away from the Master Emerald.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Sonic & Knuckles for the Sega Genesis. As Sonic 3 was released without all the content and features it was originally intended to include, Sega followed up quickly with the release of Sonic & Knuckles in 1994. Utilizing a rarely seen cartridge technology, it was the first and only officially licensed lock-on cart that allowed for previous Sonic games to be plugged into it and expand their original content, most notably the chance to play as Knuckles the Echidna. As a stand-alone game it's not much different from Sonic 3, but adds plenty of new features and platforming gameplay variety to continue Sonic's 16-bit legacy. This review features Sonic & Knuckles gameplay footage and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of X-Men from Western Technologies, Inc. and SEGA for the SEGA Genesis. X-Men is a side-scrolling beat 'em up with lots of platforming, a style of game that was the nineties equivalent to the modern day first-person shooter in that roughly one out of every two games on store shelves is the exact same thing. With four helper mutants at your one-time-use disposal, you play as four X-Men, swapping between them after dying the same way you could in the classic Ninja Turtles games of the era. This video review features video gameplay footage of X-Men for the SEGA Genesis and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Magician Lord for the Neo Geo, published by SNK. You control Elta the wizard in a quest to save his homeland from an evil wizard in this intense side-scrolling platformer released in 1990 as a Neo Geo launch title. This brutally challenging and underrated classic sees you blast away countless demons and monsters, and undergo powerful transformations into ninjas, samurais, and dragons to help you on your difficult quest. Fans of retro cheese will also thoroughly enjoy the awkward translation and voice acting of its main villain. "Hey nice guy! Be dead down here!" This review features Magician Lord gameplay footage from the PlayStation Network version and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Samurai Shodown for the Neo Geo by SNK. Released in 1993, this game finally put up some stiff competition to the heavy hitters Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat that were dominating the arcade fighting arena at the time. Samurai Shodown's art style, setting, atmosphere, weaponry, and refined fighting mechanics set it apart dramatically and resulted in a very well received answer to the "hadouken." Including classic characters like Haohmaru, Hanzo, Gen-An, Nakoruru, Charlotte, Galford, Earthquake, Wan-Fu and many more, now you can re-live this classic with this new version available on the PlayStation Network that includes online play. This review features Samurai Shodown gameplay footage and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.
