A horizontal space ship shooter combined with a rhythm game - played in reverse! It sounds crazy, but it actually works remarkably well. The colors are really bright and flashy - almost distractedly so at points, and it runs really smooth. The gameplay itself is unique, and makes you think about what it means to be a shmup or a rhythm game, and how there's really rhythm in every game genre. There are several difficulty levels, a challenge mode, and leader boards to keep you busy. Check it out!

 Xbox 360 HD-DVD Player - Xbox 360
"This probably would've been a good idea had the HD-DVD format won the war, but the drive is almost useless without a huge library of HD-DVD movies to play and the drive itself isn't very intuitive to hook up to your Xbox 360 console." - fasttquick

 Turbo Touch 360 - Super Nintendo
"Its a terrific idea on paper, but like so many other failed video game peripherals that game before and after, the Turbo Touch 360 just fails in practice. Whats the hallmark of a good control pad? Why, a precise D-pad of course, which is the one feature this particular family of controllers does not have! The only reason I had one, was because I won some contest back in the day, and they mailed me one." - sherberttcat

 Xbox 360 HD-DVD Player - Xbox 360
"HD-DVD was the Betamax of it's day. It wasn't as aggressively pushed as Blu-ray, and it's discs don't hold as much data." - sherberttcat

 Pit Fighter - Atari Lynx
"Lynx was hurting for anything it could get. Pit Fighter isn't a "good game on any platform, but the awfulness of the Lynx port rivals the Super Nintendo's." - sherberttcat

 Samurai Shodown - Neo-Geo MVS
"Neo Geo arcade games brought big and loud to a whole new level. I first played Samurai Showdown on a jumbo screen deluxe cabinet. It was a shining diamond in the ruff of countless SF2 clones. With it's weapon based combat, and extremely vibrant graphics, it really set to arcades on fire. It was also released at a very opportune time. The anime craze was in full swing, and gamers in love with all things Japanese, so a game centered around Samurais was greeted with open arms here in the states." - sherberttcat
