Bought just for Robotron 2084

Jaewoo Kim "OB-Wan", Amazon
17 August 2013
  • 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?

flawed presentation, no networked support

J. Prescott, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • Summary: I like the fact that the Midway catalog has finally made the leap to more modern consoles, although it looks like the effort is a bit rushed. Overall, the emulation on games like 720, Defender, Gauntlet, Joust, Rampart, Robotron 2084, Tapper (Root Beer) and Wizard of Wor is less than perfect. Occasionally the audio doesn't sound accurate, unacceptable to the classic game enthusiast who craves accuracy.

Midway Arcade Origins--Not as fun as I remember

M. McElroy, Amazon
1 May 2013
  • Summary: As a child of the 80's I was super excited to see this collection of games! They just weren't as fun as they used to be. I've played it a total of 20 minutes and couldn't stand it any longer. I guess the graphics of today's PS3 games have the best of me. My 13 yro son played it about three times longer then I did and he shelved it too. My 5 yro daughter loves it!

So close...but so far away

Matthew, Amazon

  • Summary: Honestly, even though the price has dropped (as all do eventually), this game is almost painful in a way. Please understand, I have nothing against Sony or Midway. They've both brought me some of the absolute best arcade gaming experiences in my life. However, regardless of reasoning, I just cannot justify Sony removing backwards compatibility with the PlayStation 2. We all spent a lot of money on PS2 games and accessories for years.

It's ok

Amazon Customer, Amazon
18 February 2013
  • Summary: Sometimes, it's ok to let go. I really wanted this for nostalgia's sake. I wanted to be able to be a kid again, go back to the arcade and play Total Carnage. And while, the game is fun and a good port, gameplay got old for me. Now, that being said, there are a TON of games on this disc. But I just couldn't really get into a bunch of them. I had read other reviews that said that the driving games didn't control that well and that's accurate.

Technology is great

  • Summary: The games are exactly as I remember. They kept my attention for a few minutes, then I was on to the next one. My hatred for Marble Madness is still strong, though.

A Great HD Retro Collection with some flaws...

That Review Guy, Amazon
14 November 2012
  • Summary: I have been very excited for this retro collection. I have all the previous releases for ps2, and expected this to be the same. well, it isn't and though they did a great job making the graphics HD, they did not do the sound any justice at all, it's horribly annoying. a great example is Wizard of Wor, in the arcade it was a little talkie where the machine would taunt the player, here it simply does not shut up. it yaks on endlessly.

  • Summary: När jag växte upp gillade jag att hänga i spelhallarna på Liseberg, och med denna samling hade jag hoppats på att återuppleva lite av den nostalgin, plingandet ljuset från spelmaskiner. Jag har sett ett par snygga flipperemulatorer som hade illusionen av en spelhall, och jag hade hoppats på något liknande här. Nu är det istället att man får välja vilket spel man vill köra, och det är gansk ok.
