    Classic Game Room - RIVER RAID for Atari 2600 review


    by ClassicGameRoom

    Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of RIVER RAID for the Atari 2600 VCS Video Computer System by Activision. This vertical scrolling shoot em up, or SHMUP, is a great example of the 2D action fighter plane genre like 1942 or 1943. We love Shmups here at Classic Game Room, and this classic old school retro arcade video game is one of the best. Pilot your jet up the river and destroy bad guys with your arsenal of missiles. If you like Ikaruga, Radiant Silvergun and Raiden III you will love River Raid. This game should be remade for the PS3, Wii or Xbox 360 Live XBLA sometime soon because it is so much fun and a great shooter with great controls and action. It's a maniac shooter, it's RIVER RAID! Be sure to watch the original Classic Game Room episodes. Classic Game Room was the original classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999-2000, now on DVD.
