Gunblade and L.A. Machineguns are two absolute classics that once wowed the diehard arcade faithful... and sent us into paroxysms of ecstasy when we heard that Nintendo were bundling them into a single bumper pack of lightgun joy. It's still a month away, but 101CD and affiliates (including DVD.co.uk and BlahDVD) are offering a preorder price of £14.99. This delivers a saving of £2 compared to 365 Games and a whopping £15 compared to everywhere else! As always, this is a preorder, so you're free to back out if we bring you a better price. To be honest, I can't really see that happening for a while.

Right, let's get this out of the way first and foremost. This game contains the full and practically unedited versions of two classic lightgun games- and it's basically for fans of the originals or the genre in general. The graphics are still pretty basic, replayability is likely to be fairly low (with score attacks being the main draw). It's unlikely to suck in newcomers to the lightgun scene.
On the other hand, it's the full version of two fantastic lightgun games that once made many of us undertake the arduous trek to SegaWorld at the Trocadero. Expect massive gunfights, rock hard bosses and more hammy VA and scripting than you can handle. You'll want a half decent gun accessory for your Wiimote in order to get the full arcade feel, mind... as well as a buddy to team up with in local co-op!
