Excerpt: The original Midway Arcade Treasures was quite a success, we were surprised and Midway probably was as well. It just goes to show that old games still appeal to those who can get past the rather ugly forefronts, which – as the sales of the original seem to suggest – is quite a lot of people. Midway was bound to follow up with a new collection of old games.
Summary: Classic compilations usually focus on the
golden age of gaming from the early 80's, and this collection is no exception
with classic titles such as Wizard of Wor, Spy Hunter II and Gauntlet II making
appearances. However, Midway Arcade Treasures 2 also includes a collection of
newer arcade classics including Mortal Kombat 2 & 3, Rampage World Tour,
Total Carnage, Primal Rage and Pit-Fighter.
Summary: Midway Arcade Treasures 2 has its problems with the odd glitch and some transition problems from arcade to current-gen consoles but overall it provides what it sets out to - a retro ride through Midway's arcade past and re-introduces some of the old arcade classic that old-skool gamers know and love.
Excerpt: Basically, if you are a 20-something who spent a lot of time in arcades growing up, just go out and by this. You will be filled with a child like glee. Seriously. Glee. You will be filled with it. This is a great collection of older arcade games and it has given me more enjoyment then a lot of brand new games I’ve played lately. If you are not a 20-something who spent a lot of time in an arcade, perhaps, someone younger.
