Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Mega Man 2 for the NES by Capcom. The second installment of the Mega man series would make large improvements in graphics, sound, and gameplay, and went on to be the most successful title in the franchise. While it retains the same non-linear elements and core design of the original, a toned down level of challenge made it much more approachable and enjoyable. Taking down Dr. Wily and his eight robot bosses has become a staple of side scrolling platform game history, and is widely considered by fans and critics alike as one of the finest video games ever created. So warm up that Mega Buster! This review features Mega Man 2 gameplay footage from the Mega Man Anniversary Collection on the Nintendo GameCube and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Wolverine: Adamantium Rage from Teeny Weeny Games and Acclaim for the SEGA Master Drive. Wolverine: Adamantium Rage is also available for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Wolverine: Adamantium Rage is an action-platform game in the vein of other X-Men games of that generation. Wolverine has to navigate his way through the levels by platforming and beating up bad guys, which is standard operating procedure for these 16-bit X-Men games. But there are a few things that set Adamantium Rage apart from the others. This was one of the first video games to include a regenerative health system, a convention now prevalent throughout the entire industry. This video review features video gameplay footage of Wolverine: Adamantium Rage for the SEGA Mega Drive and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Narc originally released for arcades by Williams. Narc was released to arcades in 1988 and designed by Eugene Jarvis, the same mastermind that brought us such classics as Defender, Robotron 2084, and Smash TV. It's notorious for being one of the first popular games with graphic over the top violence and abundant drug references, yet still packs a wicked punch with its frantic shooting action and explosive challenge. Whether you gun down those dealers or bust 'em by the book, you'll have lots of fun laying the smack down in this hilarious and ridiculous arcade cult classic. If you're good enough to beat Mr. Big, don't forget to contact your local DEA recruiter! This review features Narc gameplay footage from Midway Arcade Treasures 2 on the Nintendo GameCube (also available on PS2, Xbox, and PSP) and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

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.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of the Lion King from Virgin Interactive for the SEGA Genesis. The Lion King is also available for the NES, Super NES, Amiga, PC, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance and Game Gear. Not only does the Lion King not suck, but it's also not easy, another jarring difference from today's licensed games. In fact, it's quite the opposite of easy, and that's one of the Lion King's most enduring traits. This isn't a tough game for kids — this is tough game for anyone. In some ways, that's a good thing, but it's also ironic that a game based on a movie that promotes a problem-free philosophy would be so arduous. This is anything but hakuna matata. This CGRundertow video review features video gameplay footage of the Lion King for the SEGA Genesis and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of de Blob 2 from Blue Tongue and THQ for the Nintendo Wii. de Blob 2 is also available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. de Blob 2 follows in the colorful paint-smears of the 2008 original. Controlling a blob of paint, it's your job to lead a resistance against the Inkt Corporation and their leader Comrade Black. They've sapped all the color from de Blob's world, enforcing a kind of greyscale fascism from which the only salvation is creativity. Your creativity, to be precise. But first and foremost, de Blob 2 is a platformer. This video review features video gameplay footage of de Blob 2 for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Klonoa from Namco for the Nintendo Wii. Klonoa is the 2009 remake of the original Klonoa: Door To Phantomile, a 1997 PlayStation game and one of the system's most influential and underrated titles. The first Klonoa was a genuinely groundbreaking game, one of the earliest practitioners of the 2.5D platformer...as well as one of the best. Klonoa is a hybrid platformer that plays like the classics and incorporates its own twist on modern approaches. You see design elements like this in everything from New Super Mario Bros. to Donkey Kong Country Returns, and although it never gets the credit, Klonoa was one of the first to try them. This video review features video gameplay footage of Klonoa for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

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.

This review features Contra: Hard Corps gameplay footage on the Sega Genesis and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition from Capcom for the Nintendo 3DS. As with most games that have subtitles with the word "edition," this is not an all-new release. Super Street Fighter IV was originally released in Apr. 2010 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and this is the aptly titled 3D edition of that game. What's interesting, however, is that this doesn't at all feel like a downgrade. Capcom's legendary fighting series and its latest addition arrives on Nintendo's newest portable system largely intact. All the important stuff that made Super Street Fighter IV such a great game has made the jump into 3D, and the game plays as well as ever. This video review features video gameplay footage of Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
