Midway Arcade Treasures 3

  • Excerpt: It says something about the past of the American publisher that Midway are now releasing their third retrospective compilation of the games that made their name. The first two collections of Arcade Treasures were a hotchpotch of different games. Now Midway have started to show off, and their latest in the series, Midway Arcade Treasures 3, is a compilation of nothing but racing games.

  • Summary: Midway Arcade Treasures 3 for the PS2 is a solid emulation pack that steers the classic compilation in a new direction. This installment features 8 classic arcade racing games ranging from earlier classics such as STUN Runner and Race Drivin' to newer releases like Hydro Thunder and San Francisco Rush: The Rock. Each game has been emulated faithfully, and they look and play as they should, for the most part.

Midway Arcade Treasures 3

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: The games included in Midway Arcade Treasures 3 are exact emulations of their arcade counterparts. Every game, whether 2D or 3D, looks exactly like it did in the arcade, for better or worse. While the look is nostalgic and exact, nothing has been done to make these games run more smoothly than they did when they inhabited the machines in the arcades. This means that whatever slowdown or glitches were present then are still present on the PS2.

Midway Arcade Treasures 3 Review

  • Excerpt: Classic collections or 'Treasures' are incredibly hard to look at objectively. On one hand you've got the ruthless side of your brain demanding every game in the collection to be judged by modern standards, while the nicer side wants to get all nostalgic and remember the good old days. Seeing as I have no idea what you're gaming history is, every game in Midway Arcade Treasures 3 is getting a grilling.

  • Conclusion: Choosing to highlight a specific genre within a classic games compilation is a fine idea, but the folly of Midway Arcade Treasures 3 is its choice of genres. So many of the games included here relied so heavily on custom arcade hardware that they lose much of their appeal in the translation.
  • Pros: More focused than previous installments, Covers a good variety of racing styles.
  • Cons: Limited number of games, Can't emulate arcade hardware features, STUN Runner runs erratically.
