Summary: Darth Fluffy is da king of da world ho ho ho. he likes dis can't wait for Midway Arcade 2 with Mortal Combat 1 2 and 3 and Wizard of Wor! Weeeeeeee! Bug yuggie yuggie!! I'm an astronaut! Slabadoo!
Summary: The controller set up is excellent! Some people complain that in multi-players games like Gauntlet & Ramapge you can't select the player, they are wrong. In the game option you can select any player you want to be, you can be any player from any socket and you can save the settings. In the Gamecube version you have to switch sockets, so XBOX version is better designed. Smash TV looks just like the arcade on XBOX!
Summary: Really, $20 for 20 old style arcade games. Are you kidding me?! The purchase price is worth Gauntlet, Marble Madness and Spy Hunter alone. This set of arcade classics includes every popular game from Midway you can imagine, including the insanely popular Defender and Joust. I grinned from ear to ear when I popped this in the Xbox and told my son that I used to pay .25 to play these games. He just kind of chuckled and looked at me all strange.
Summary: Dream come true! This collection is so awesome, let the tears of joy flow. These old school arcade games are super fun with solid logic, gameplay, mind stimulation, action, challenge, and entertainment. The 24 games are: Spy hunter, defender, defender 2, gauntlet, joust, joust 2, paperboy, rampage, robotron 2084, smash tv, bubbles, roadblasters, blaster, rampart, sinistar, super sprint, marble madness, 720*, toobin', klax, splat!
Summary: This game disc has many of the oldies that you ancient folks, like me, will remember playing at the arcade. They are basically reproduced as we remember them. Amazing how we lived in the stone ages isn't it? Still there is much fun to be had and memories to stoke. The original version of Gauntlet is worth its weight in quarters. Have fun with this and you won't be dissapointed.
Summary: First off, Gauntlet 2 was way better than the original, why not include it as well or instead? And as for Spy Hunter, well, I am one of the biggest fans, and the Peter Gunn theme is still and perhaps never will be emulated exactly the way it was in the original arcade, not to mention the 'death' sequence sometimes doesn't play when you die. Most of the sound effects have a weaker than original sound to them as well.
Summary: The video arcade has been dying a slow death for the past decade, fewer and fewer of these classic games are available to play in the original form. Midway Arcade Treasures features no fewer than 24 games that are practically unavailable in their native format. If you have any interest in classic gaming, this collection is worth a look, provided you can get used to its quirks.
Summary: Great collection of classic Midway arcade! No, they don't have today's graphics to back them up. They are still a challenge, and the fun factor is high! A lot of the younger people may be shocked at how fun these games really were? If you want a plot and graphics, watch a DVD movie. You want a entertainingly fun video game, buy this!
Summary: Nice game only... Sinistar is played in a SQUARE playfield on a vertical screen with a radar map on top. In this version the radar is still on top when you have a horizontal screen. this makes the picture smaller than it should be. The radar should be placed on the side for the game to work correctly. I hope they make a PC version with this flaw corrected. The best version of Sinistar is still the old Sega Genesis cart.
Summary: This is a great compilation of 80's arcade hits with the expection of maybe 1 or 2.
