Arcade Gunning Comes Home
24 November 2010
Excerpt: Sega is without a doubt the masters of arcade based shooters. While arcades might have reached extinction here in the US, the trickle of shooters they still make (such as Rambo) are still as engaging as ever. This has not been more apparent as it was in the late 90s. With titles such as Virtua Cop and House of the Dead, Sega led the charge. But it was another game that took the arcade shooter to a whole new level. That game was Gunblade NY.
Gunblade NY & LA Machine Guns Arcade Hits Pack (Wii) Review

Summary: Gunblade NY and LA Machine Guns Arcade Hits Pack is exactly what you'd expect. It is two quick ports of two arcade light gun games. While each of these games is still a lot of fun, particularly LA Machine Guns, nothing is added to this package. Your initial playthrough shouldn't last more than an hour. While light gun games tend to have great replay value, this is a slim package.

While fans argued endlessly about the pro and cons of Virtua Fighter and Tekken, another battle, but no less intense, raged on the sidelines.

Those big light guns, the violent vibrations, the waves of enemies... It wasn't just a fun game, but a fun game experience.
Excerpt: SEGA war in den 90iger Jahren ein halber Monopolist in den Spielhallen und sammelte über die Jahre ein ordentliches Portfolio an coolen und abgedrehten Klassikern. Nach Ghost Squad und der The House of the Dead-Reihe bringt das japanische Traditionshaus erneut 2 Spielhallen-Klassiker im Doppelpack auf die Nintendo Wii. Diesmal sind es die Ballerorgien Gunblade NY: Special Air Assault Force und L.A. Machineguns: Rage of the Machines tragen.
Arcade Hits Pack: Gunblade NY & L.A. Machineguns Review
7 December 2010
Summary: Mit „The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return“, „The House of the Dead: Overkill“ und „Ghost Squad“ hat Sega in den vergangenen Jahren drei der besten Rail-Shooter auf die Wii gebracht. Doch nach dem Misserfolg von „Dead Space Extraction“ aus dem Hause Electronic Arts sah man erst einmal davon ab, weitere Actionspiele dieser Art für die Wii zu entwickeln. Nun erscheint mit „Arcade Hits Pack: Gunblade NY & L.A.
