Midway Arcade Origins review (PS3)

HonestGamers
22 December 2012
  • Excerpt: I grew up playing Marble Madness on the NES, with a controller. The d-pad turned out to be the perfect control mechanism for that game, and that’s almost entirely due to the excellent work Rare did with the port. I didn’t realize at the time just how much modification must have been necessary.

Guardians of Middle-earth dispels the difficulty of online battle arenas (review)

VentureBeat
10 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Guardians of Middle-earth sacrifices a lot of complexity to work as a console game. Hardcore MOBA fans will disapprove of the changes, but genre newbies looking for some team-based, Tolkien-inspired fun will happily take these heroes and villains to war.
  • Pros: MOBA made easy The multiplayer online battle arena has never been the most welcoming of genres. Games like Defense of the Ancients and League of Legends are famous for their tough, often mean communities. It’s because these games are hard to play, with complicated rules that require hours to unde...
  • Cons: Lagolas (Get it? I combined lag and Legolas into one word. Funny, right?) Sadly, lag has been an issue with my time with Guardians, though the problem seems to improve each day. It was virtually unplayable on Dec. 5, the game’s release day on the 360. I couldn’t last two minutes without getting b...

  • Conclusion: Kind of cool to see one of these discs pop up again. Just as a solid personal movie collection needs a few "black and whites," this gives the same effect to the game library. A generous number of titles with a handful of really choice stuff. Stylistic preservation is coupled with better resolution.

  • Summary: Nostalgia, it's a thing When there was still an arcade near my house, Midway games were the ones I often found myself pumping the most quarters into. During the last console generation, I scooped up the Midway Arcade Treasures collections to relive those glory days.

  • Excerpt: On le sait depuis longtemps, à un moment ou à un autre, tout éditeur qui se respecte se doit de regrouper, à travers diverses compilations, les titres qui ont fait leur renommée (ou celle des autres) dans les années 80-90.

  • Conclusion: Midway Arcade Origins est une compilation assez honnête qui rappellera des souvenirs à ceux qui ont connu ses jeux en Arcade. Les autres passeront très certainement leur tour, tant le portage n'apporte rien de nouveau, et conserve une difficulté qui semblera d'un autre âge pour bien des joueurs...

Recensione Midway Arcade Origins

Everyeye Network
18 December 2012
  • Summary: Non c'è nulla di sbagliato in Midway Arcade Origins. Warner Bros vuole rendersi conto dell'appeal odierno delle licenze Midway, acquistate nel 2009: avrebbe potuto rilasciare quattro o cinque giochi sugli store online a 5 euro l'uno e invece ne ha impacchettati ben 30 ad un prezzo squisito (29,90...
