This was one of your strongest reviews in a while, pickhut. Your writing style was lively and you made good points about missed opportunities and the problems with what the game attempted. I actually saw one of the two games at the arcade that used to be located in the mall where I lived in Bend. It looked mildly amusing but I didn't find myself with a quarter to spare. This compilation sounds like a pretty big disappointment.

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

Really? Thanks. I was kinda hoping it would be good, but I had my doubts. I played a bit of Gunblade NY back in 1999/2000, so I had a chance to wrap my hands around one of those guns. My memory is foggy, but I think they rumbled, too. I never made it past the first stage, surprisingly.

Also, probably wishing for a "complete" Virtua Cop collection on the Wii may be asking too much XD. I'm not really sure how powerful Virtua Cop 3's hardware is in comparison to the Wii's.

I head spaceshit noises.

Pickhut, I happen to have experienced both Gunblade N.Y. and L.A. Machine Guns, and yes -- the big, bulky, two-foot-long plastic guns do rumble. However, whoever has one (or both) of these games in their possession has to keep the machine(s) in as good a condition as possible.
