The Only Good Reason to Buy This Game: Primal Rage

Summary: A good reason to play Midway Arcade Treasures 2, but still not quite good enough. Primal Rage on it's own is also available for the original Sony PlayStation, Sega Genesis, Windows (computer) and other platforms without all the other crappy games included. Primal Rage is the only reason to even want to put this game in your console.
If you want this for Mortal Kombat II or III, think again.

Summary: If you want this title for Mortal Kombat II or MKIII, think again. Upon receiving this game, I was immensely excited with my anticipation of being reunited with the classic Mortal Kombat II. The game looks great. The controls are there. But the one huge turn-off is that this game is so unplayable in 1-player mode. The CPU opponent is so ridiculously cheap and difficult that you are lucky if you can even get passed the 3rd fighter.
Summary: ...how the team at Midway felt comfortable releasing this compilation this way. It's as though they didn't even play-test it. But since we all know they did, it suggests a cheap, quick-and-easy effort in an attempt to cash in on the tail end of the nostalgia boom. Lets get into this... (As a side note, there is sound issues with almost all the games included.) The Mortal Kombat titles are easily the strongest selling point of the game. I know its the reason I bought it!
Summary: A collection of retro games always seems like a great idea - a nostalgic jaunt back to the heady days of seaside arcades, coin-ops in chip shops and ten plays for a quid. But like most trips down memory lane in turns into a disappointing trudge. Most of the games are, frankly, rubbish and don't warrant one play let alone a repeat performance. All the 2D fighting games are incredibly dated, with Pitfighter virtually unplayable.
