Midway Arcade Origins

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: 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. Now with the promise of leaderboards and Achievements/Trophies, the Midway name is back again with another compilation of classic titles. But is it worth taking that trip down memory lane once more?

  • 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. Add in solid options, PSN leaderboards, with local multiplayer, and the $30 asking price becomes quite reasonable. Still, online play would have pushed this up a few levels.

  • Excerpt: Midway Games war einer der wichtigsten Wegbereiter in der gesamten Videospielgeschichte. Das im Jahre 1976 gegründete Unternehmen war unter anderem verantwortlich für frühere Meilensteine wie „Pac Man“, „Space Invaders“, „ Mortal Kombat “, „ Killer Instinct “ und brachte mit „Shadow Hearts: Covenant“ auch vor noch nicht allzu langer Zeit eines der besten RPGs aller Zeiten auf den Markt.
  • Pros: 31 alte Klassiker spielbar, Spielhallenflair gut überliefert, Rampart, Lokaler Multiplayer
  • Cons: Teils schreckliche Steuerung, Zu wenig Abwechslung trotz vieler Spiele, Wird sehr schnell öde

  • 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. Les plus nostalgiques vous diront que certains d'entre eux font véritablement partie du patrimoine vidéoludique et qu'ils méritent qu'on leur rende hommage plutôt que de finir oubliés de tous.

Análisis de Midway Arcade Origins para PS3 y 360

  • Conclusion: Como recopilación de títulos clásicos resulta mucho más atractivo que las reediciones de Xbox Live Arcade y PS Network . Sin embargo como título comercial echamos de menos un mayor número de extras y de opciones de juego para acabar de conquistarnos. Al menos su precio le hace justicia y le convierte en una pequeña joya a la que solo deben acercarse aquellos que aprecien el valor de los juegos de otras épocas.

Midway Arcade Origins - Recensione

  • 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 euro, meno di 1 euro a gioco!).
