Better Late Than Never
Location: Acworth, GA
This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
It took Sega long enough, but with this compilation we finally have decent ports of Gunblade NYC (1995) and LA Machine Guns (1998). They are simple yet fun on-rails shooters--you fly in a helicopter and blast baddies with an unlimited ammo machine gun. For the most part, these classics look and play just like their arcade counterparts (there's also widescreen support, by the way). I believe the framerate for LA Machine Guns is slightly slower, but it still runs smooth and you probably won't notice the difference unless you have the original arcade machine nearby.
Yes, the graphics are dated and the voice acting is laughable...but the uber-fun gameplay and nostalgia factor are the real stars here. Also be aware that there aren't many extras (just online leaderboards and a ho-hum Score Attack mode), so there's not much to keep you coming back. The Wii is the perfect home for this package though, and it's an invaluable gem for arcade nuts.
First of all, I have to say that I was appalled when I saw this title at the store. The graphics are what you would expect from these kinds of games. But the main reason to have this is the fact that you can change the difficulty in both games, gain extra weapons and you are even able to see how well you do against the world scorewise. The price mightdrive you away but it is totally worth it!
This game is quite fun the first time you play it. But it takes only 2 hours to beat and then your done. I played this game twice once alone and once in two-player co op which for some reason is not as good as in other arcade style shooters. If you have to play every single on rails shooter out there,,, rent this.

Review 5 for Gunblade NYC & LA Machine Guns
I don't remember how many coins I put in these machines. I love these game and back in the Day I could beat both with 2 bucks and me shooting both guns at the same time. Just because I can beat it with both gun don't think this game is easy. =P I can't while to see it out on my Wii.

A moment in time I never thought would arrive...
Fellow gamers, if you've ever loved any arcade light-gun game in your lifetime, you owe it to yourselves to buy this game! Not only does it contain two of the best, most intense arcade light-gun shooters ever created, but it's literally the only game of its kind on the horizon to be released on Wii for the forseeable future! Even if you've never played either title in the arcade this game is HIGHLY recommended!!!

Old School Love
Normally I don't pay much attention to on-rail shooter collections. But this? I'm interested. Gunblade was awesome in the arcades, there was nothing like shooting things like a madman and causing reckless and wanton destruction while seeing some amazing explosions back then. One thing's for sure, Sega owned the arcade scene, am glad to see this is coming home.
