A definite must own if you love classic arcade games.

if u love classics get this

A nice collection but not all the games control well on console and there are some omissions but there is plenty of fun for the price. Smash TV, Wizard of Wor, Root Beer Tapper, Gauntlet, Rampage, etc are fun arcade games that mostly translated well. There aren't a lot of extras and not all the games great but this collection is worth it for a fan of Midway classics. Hopefully we can get another collection later with more 90s titles like the Rush games.

While many of the games in this collection are excellent, and have stood the test of time well, some just don't measure up. Games like Robotron, Smash TV, Total Carnage, and the various shooters will play well, but some of the other title's were clearly meant to be played on their respective cabinets with their unique controls.

 Drunken Robot Pornography - PC
"This is an FPS that's BETTER than COD! Combining bullet-hell difficulty, great humor, cheezy one-liners, awesome music and the first person perspective, this is a crazy game that plays excellent! It's well worth the $15 asking price! IT'S D. PLUS R. WITH A CAPITAL P. IT'S PRONOUNCED DRUNKEN ROBOT PORNOGRAPHY!!!!!" - luigiman87

 Panzer Dragoon - Sega Saturn
""Get out of the way you stupid Dragon! I Can't see!!" Is what I constantly say when playing Panzer Dragoon. That's the biggest issue with this game, half your vision is blocked by your character. If only they made it first person perpective or simple make the character you're controlling a little smaller. I never had these issues with StarFox, Space Harrier, or Panorama Cotton which by the way are twice as good as this game! The visuals are good for it's time and the music is great. Unlimted continues would have been nice since it gets crazy hard when you're half blinded." - Truxton4life

 Acorn Electron - Electron/BBC
"This little thing actually ran Elite, It also has a vast library of games even more so than the BBC.To be fair most of the games don't stand the test of time but as a child this machine holds a lot of fond memories. Brought for home work used for games take that mum!" - harris77
