Arcade Hits Pack: Gunblade NY and L.A. Machineguns is a collection of two Sega light-gun rail shooter arcade games, Gunblade NY: Special Air Assault Force and L.A. Machineguns: Rage of the Machines, which ran on Sega's Model 2 and Model 3 arcade hardware respectively. Both titles share a similar premise: android terrorists attack a peaceful state of America (New York and California respectively) in the near future, and it's up to a counter-terrorist squadron force to neutralize the hostiles and free the state(s) by air via a gunship.

Gunblade NY and L.A. Machineguns also share similar gameplay: both games are on-rails shooters which have you fly around specific loci of the areas you traverse in, gunning down enemy androids with infinite ammo. Enemy A.I. can also be completely aggressive and evasive depending on the difficulty setting the games are set to. However, what differentiates L.A. Machineguns from Gunblade NY in terms of gameplay is it's addition of complex features such as a new chain combo system, civilians (which you must avoid shooting at), and a significantly more linear pace than Gunblade NY's.

This port includes additional features such as new unlockable weapons and online leaderboards. Also supports the Wii Zapper. [source:mobygames]
