Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Ninja Gaiden for the NES. Released by Tecmo in 1989, this version on the Nintendo Entertainment System isn't a beat-em-up like the original arcade classic, but instead took the route of an intense sidescrolling platformer. One of the most beloved and feared games of its generation, Ninja Gaiden puts you in control of Ryu Hayabusa in a difficult battle against the villain Jaquio and his minions who strive to conquer the world. This review features Ninja Gaiden gameplay footage and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

With the difficulty of each level rising, Jake, Rob, and Brett now find themselves Dungeon crawling in level 5. However, there is more that lurks in the shadows than your typical video game cliches. With muscle bound lobsters and cameos a plenty, our heroes are in more danger than ever before! Will they be able to escape the shadows and finally reach Arcadius' Castle? When a hardcore gamer, an idiot, and a frat-boy are plagued by summer release doldrums, an NES classic called "Ultimate Challenge" sucks them into a world where fighting means more than just a high score. Over the course of six episodes these companions brave the perils of slime monsters, oblivious princesses, and bosses who don't know when to quit. Featuring ButtonMashers stars Sam Sher and Dave Klein with the voice talents of Alex Chod as frat-boy turned animated squid, "Ultimate Challenge" is a side-splitting look at old school gaming- equal parts subversion and nostalgia, UC laughs at classic video game genres as only those who truly love them can.

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 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 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.
