Summary: Midway has very deep roots when it comes to gaming. Whilst the younger generations might not acknowledge life before Mortal Kombat, many of us spilled entire months' worth of allowances into many of Midway's old machines. So, here's Midway Arcade Treasures 3. This focused on all of Midway's greatest racing franchises. Granted, in the arcade, the machines were built like cars with steering wheels, gas peddles, and brake peddles, but they can still prove to be fun.
Summary: I bought this game thinking it would be fun to play classic arcade on the PS2, however, nothing changed. The games are just that, ugly retro downgraded pixel games. Its all the same as the arcade version, you play and you go....away. I like Hydro thunder in the arcade because of the awesome sound, vibration, graphics and feel. But here, the graphics have been totally downgraded, the music and sound FX are trash, and it's just not fun.
Excerpt: The concluding entry in Midway’s trilogy of archive-trawling retro compilations has a distinctly racy flavour to it. Whilst some may question the credentials of eight aging racing games considered good enough for ‘Treasures’ treatment only at the third time of asking, the package isn’t ultimately as bad as that sounds.
Pros: Hydro Thunder; consistantly good track design; good emulation
Cons: Few standout titles; lazy presentation and little in the way of extras; sound quality
