Showing 1-10 of 17
a great collection of my favorites
7 May 2011
Summary: I purchased this game for myself and was very surprised to find my kds going crazy for them. I barely have a chance to play it anymore. I love these games. Reminds me of the old pizza shop where you can play pacman and grab a slice of pizza. Good times.
Summary: I recently purchased "Namco Museum 50th Anniversary" after finding out that I love "Galaga". This and other classic games are featured in the title. The front cover boasts 14 playable games but what you're not told is that there are two other games available when you unlock them. You're also not told that there's some great 80's music featured as you're selecting which game you'd like to play.
Summary: I picked up this collection of oldies but goodies around 2003 or 2004. There's 14 games plus two bonus games you can "unlock" with high scores. The games are: Pac Man Ms. Pac Man Galaga Galaxian Dig Dug Rally-X Pole Position 1 & 2 Xevious Dragon Spirit Bosconian Rolling Thunder Mappy Sky Kid Bonus games: Pac-Mania Galaga 88 I did not detect anything different from these games and their arcade counterparts, like some other die-hard game reviewers did.
Summary: This game contains the best of the older arcade games and the graphics are pretty good. There is a long loading time for the game and each individual game. If you want to change the settings, i.e., add more men, etc. you have to leave the game and go to the original screen, then to settings. But, compared to Atari Anthology, the graphics are great!
Summary: Namco's 50th Anniversary edition of Namco Museum features 14 playable games along with two unlockables for a grand total of 16 arcade originals for your retro enjoyment. All the games, of course, are from the 80's. The "Museum" part has been reduced down to you selecting different virtual arcade machines one at a time. At the same time, a pop song from the 80's is played as background music. You cannot pick your song unlike from the Activision collection.
Summary: This Namco Museum game for PS2 takes you back to the 80's with arcade hits such as Dig Dug, Rally X and Galaga, not to mention Pac Man and Ms. Pac Man. In the game selection screen; you even get to hear classic 80's tunes by bands such as Lover Boy and Dexi's Midnight Runners A must-have for any 80's or arcade fan!
Summary: There have been a ton of various Namco Museum collections for the consoles over the past few years, and if you have none of them at all, Namco Museum: 50th Anniversary is worth picking up. Featuring many of the classic arcade games that made Namco famous (as well as already featured on previous Namco Museum releases) like Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Galaxian, Dig Dug, Pole Position, and Rally X.
