Summary: Half of the games found on this collection are utterly forgettable relics and obscurities that would hard to enjoy on any level these days. I am NOT one for nostalgia when it comes to video games (or much of anything, for that matter), but even the most hardcore nostalgic fans will be hard-pushed to enjoy mind-blowing garbage like Joust or Spy Hunter 2. The other half of the games on this collection ARE actually quite good, but the PS3 is not the platform for them.
Summary: This is a great game full of classic titles worth hours and hours of nostalgic fun. Perfect for parties or just casual gamers, Midway Arcade Origins features numerous classic arcade games that will have you remembering the days of pumping quarters into the old machines,
Summary: This is a great mix of games. I love Defender, Stargate, Smash TV, Sinistar, Wizard of Wor. The sound effects are my favorite part. If you have an HDTV and sound bar than this is heaven. I have read complaints about how it is a re release of last generation's but you can't forget that Midway went under and WB owns it now. The games are presented in HD 16:9 so it offers something the other Midway/Williams compilations don't.
Summary: Robotron 2084, in my opinion, is one of the greatest arcade games of all time. Yes, it is ancient, but it still as addictive as ever. I bought this game just for Robotron 2084, but I think the problem I had with Robotron probably extends to other games as well. As a person who is intimately familiar with computing and programming, the main problem with these games is that the PS3 is way too powerful for these games. Well that's good right?
Summary: I would have paid the price just for Robotron 2084. Honestly there are only about 10 games in the collection that I play constantly. But IMO if we are honest, we remember that when we went to the arcade, there were only a handful of games that we pumped our money into anyway. Sure, it was fun to have our friends around, 80's tunes on the jukebox, the click clack, of the air hockey tables, and the demo sounds of all the surrounding games all clamoring together...
