This game is awesome!!! It's got the whole Greek Mythology theme going for it, that gives you a different look other than the vertical spaceship shoot em ups that we all know and love. I might even like this better than, "dare I say", Truxton. The controls are responsive and you only use one button to fire your weapon, which you hold down and charge up for a more powerful shot. Phelios is one of my favorite shmups from one of my favorite developers. Namco is the best!!!

This game is nothing short of amazing! You play as Apollo on a mission to save his captured girlfriend. It's a well put together Vertical shooter where you get to battle Greek Mythology style enemies. You can charge up your shot to take out stronger enemies as well as a health meter to take up to four hits before you loose a life. The game gives you plenty of lives and continues to practice each level. Upon using a continue the game is generous enough to start you right back at the checkoint

REALLY tough game...That being said, I still love it! The graphics are very colorful, with large beautiful sprites. The sound effects and music, combined with solid, simple controls round it out. You only use one fire button, but that's all this game needs to be good! Who knew that a flying horse works just as well as a futuristic space ship!

This game was hard as balls for me as a kid. Still challenging today... SPEED UP SPEED UP OPTION! I loved being on a flying horse, that was enough to encourage me to play. One day I'll beat it.. Is it weird that I can smell my old house when I watch this?

My friends and I spent some time with this one. Great gameplay, graphics, and sound...nice backgrounds and voice work. A great game to pick up and play for minutes or hours.

A often overlooked shump this game is pretty good. You can charge up your weapon for a more powerful shot and a lot of strategy in the game is knowing what enemies to use the normal rapid fire shots on and who to use the power up shots on. A bit plan and basic looking but still a lot of fun.

 Evander Holyfield's "Real Deal" Boxing - Sega Genesis
"Here is where you'll find the best and most common boxing game on the Genesis. The main attraction here is creating your own character and moving up the ranks. After each fight you can choose what to train to level up whatever stats you desire. Whether it's Speed, Power, Endurance, or Stamina is all up to you. You and your opponent have different health bars for body and head. If you hit an opponent in the head enough times he starts to bleed. The game gets very challenging the higher you go." - Truxton4life

 Donkey Kong - Atari Computers
"This version is a blast! But you got one thing wrong, Mark. Atari XE is to be played with Quickshot joysticks, at least that's how we all played it behing iron curtain." - sirludvig

 Atari 2600 4-Switch Wood Grain Console - Atari 2600
"well complimented by Cape Cod Potato Chips" - teddykongcountry

 Destiny - PlayStation 4
"This is the first FPS to get me excited in a long while. Bungie has done it again and created another expansive universe. The game allows for PvE and PvP. The ability to enjoy co-op and competitive play together but separate a nice change. The only drawback is in PvP weapon balance seems to be different. Glad I got on the PS4, there is such an attention to detail that goes missing on last gen. A great reason to get your next gen system." - Fox
