Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of SHAQ FU from Delphine Software and Electronic Arts (EA) for the SEGA Genesis. Shaq Fu is also available for the Super NES (SNES), Game Boy and Game Gear. Released in 1994 at the height of NBA star Shaquille O'Neal's backboard-breaking popularity, Shaq Fu operates on many subtle levels. Its title is a reference to O'Neal's habit of putting his nickname into random nouns, verbs and sometimes adjectives, its gameplay is a soulless version of the then popular 2D fighter formula. Widely considered one of the all-time worst video games, Shaq Fu is objectively rancid. This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of Shaq Fu for the SEGA Genesis and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Yeah, it's furries in airplanes. But don't let that dissuade you: TaleSpin is a brutal, old-school shooter that takes no prisoners. As Baloo the bear, your task is to pilot the Sea Duck (because ducks are EVERYWHERE in Disney games) through eight stages of absurd, Capcom-style madness. Helicopter-submarines? Lightning-reflection mines? Baseball-shaped killing machines? All in a day's work for Higher for Hire!

Classic Game Room presents a CGRUndertow review of Chakan: The Forever Man, developed by Extended Play Productions and published by Sega. In a time of cartoony side-scrollers with bright plotlines and good-guy protagonists, Chakan popped onto the stage as an anti-hero with attitude and an egotistical personality that challenges Death himself. Known for its astonishing difficulty, Chakan: The Forever Man is an unfortunate black sheep among its side-scrolling brothers. This video review features video gameplay footage of Chakan: The Forever Man and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Eric.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse for the NES, from Konami. The third installment of the Castlevania series ditched the RPG elements of Simon's Quest and got back to its roots of precise platforming goodness. It also introduced branching pathways between levels, and three different playable characters that could join Trevor Belmont on his quest to stop Dracula. Grant, Sypha, and the now legendary Alucard can join the fun and add a lot of new twists to gameplay. This review features Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse gameplay footage and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Super Castlevania IV for the Super Nintendo, from Konami. Dracula has risen again in the first 16-bit installment of the Castlevania series, and it's up to the legendary vampire hunter Simon Belmont to vanquish evil with his trusty whip. As one of the earlier releases for the young new console in 1991, Konami pushed the limits of the technology with enhanced graphics and a striking musical score, not to mention refining the play controls greatly with more whipping and jumping precision. But it's still without a doubt in line with prior classics in the series, and could certainly be considered one of the best action platformers on the SNES. This review features Super Castlevania IV gameplay footage and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time for Super Nintendo developed and published by Konami Corporation. Grab a friend to teenage mutant ninja kick your way through Shredder's Foot Clan in this iconic beat 'em up. TMNT: Turtles in Time was originally a stand-up arcade classic that was brought to console. Though the console version didn't support the four-person (or should I say mutant turtle) mayhem that the Arcade version did, but it's still an awesome way to spend a few hours with a friend nonetheless. If you're thinking about getting the "re-shelled" remake, don't, the remarkable original is the only way to go. COWABUNGA!!! This video review features video gameplay footage of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle IV: Turtles in Time for Super Nintendo and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Steve.
