  • Excerpt: Museum Games are more of a lesson in classic gaming than an experience. Namco's Gameboy Advance release of the Namco Museum follow the same path the Williams has taken in their several Greatest Hits releases. This current installment of the Namco museum includes a roster of five games. These games are: Ms. Pac-Man (1980), Galaxian (1979), Galaga (1981), Dig Dug (1982), and Pole Position (1982).

  • Excerpt: It appears that a recent trend in the videogame industry is the revive old games, repackage them and sell them off (or give them away as incentive) as collections. Nintendo has their Zelda bonus disc and Super Mario GBA games. Midway has their own collection. There's even a disc full of Intellivision games. So, it's no surprise that longtime game developer/publisher Namco should do the same with their own games.
  • Pros: Classic arcade games, Easy to pick up and play, Solid reproduction of originals
  • Cons: No high-score saving, Where's, ac-Man, , , alaxian, nd, alaga, eel a little too similar.

Expert Review

19 February 2003
  • Excerpt: One of my concerns with this release was playing Ms. Pac-Man on the small screen. Namco whisked these thoughts away as soon as I selected the yellow femme fatale. Museum offers to let you play that title in original mode (with full screen displayed) or to play in a close-up scrolling mode. I tried them both and found I preferred the scrolling mode. The lack of full vision was more than made up for by the reduction in eyestrain proved by the zoomed view.

Nintendo World Report
15 June 2001
  • Summary: While it certainly isn't a cartridge for everyone for the right audience there are some good things to be said about this walk through the arcades of yesteryear...
  • Pros: For a compilation the dance card on this cart is actually exceptional compared to many others out there, For the most part all of these classics remain acceptably faithful to the originals, Old schoolers will have a blast reliving some fond memories, Pure pick up and play and then put down fun for those times where you only have 5 minutes to burn
  • Cons: Doesn't save High Scores... NOOOOOOOOO!, For perfectionists who know their details well there are occasional glaring flaws and shortcomings to some of the games, If you're not an old schooler the temptation of these titles will probably be next to zero, Pole Position in particular is rough to play on a digitally-controlled handheld

  • Conclusion: P� trods af den grumme mangel er det stadig et godt k�b for alle fans af de klassiske arkadespil. Namco m� for min skyld meget gerne udgive hele "Museum" serien til GBA.
