The lights are on
I'm not much of a political man, but I think the greatest thing to come out of Ronald Reagan's presidency has to be his "Just Say No" anti-drug campaign. I doubt it was very effective, but all I care about is the fact that it helped spawn NARC. If you haven't played it, NARC is a game about crashing sports cars into the ghetto and shooting hobos with rocket launchers. While I may have been four years old when it came out (significantly before my employment at Game Informer), I would have had no issues giving this game a perfect 10 back in 1988. Then again, that might be why we don't have any four year-olds on staff.
If you can't tell by my enthusiasm, this game is awesome. Watch below as we plow through the classic quarter muncher.

at first i thought this replay was going to be about the narc game that came out on the ps2 and xbox i'm glad i was wrong
This was a great replay, even with that creepy ass pimp head at the end. And the Mortal Kombat II segment was great! LOL
I played this with my cousin once. My uncle had the big Midway Arcade Hits collection for the Gamecube, and we spent a lot of time on this and Gauntlet.
Sounds like it has an interesting premise. I am curious to see how this ends up. I'm more excited to see the Replay Roulette. Hopefully its nothing like last weeks :/
I actually played this game on an arcade collection on the PC and enjoyed it, but probably not as much as Dan. Gallerians actually seems like a solid, albeit long game so it's good in the running against Countdown Vampires for me.
one of the best replays i've seen. Galerians is the best super replay canidate so far
Oh man, i wish i could watch gi videos on my ipad, you guys looking at supporting that in the future?
Nice mix at the end! Narc is just incredible and I'm curious for Gallerians.
What compilation was this on?
I never played the original NARC, but I did play the remake. My cousin ranted and raved over it, so I gave it a try when it was released. It was crud. Anyway Galerian seems like a good choice to follow up Overblood, but there is still one more choice so I can't really favor anyone quite yet.
