SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 PS2 Review
30 May 2010
Excerpt: Founded all the way back in 1978, thanks to games like King of Fighters, Metal Slug and Samurai Shodown, SNK have gained a strong passionate fan base. The company has been through some troublesome times and actually collapsed back in 2001.
Excerpt: SNK Arcade Classics: Vol. 1 includes 16 classic arcade games from the NEO GEO arcade cabinet. The menus even serve as an ode to the red and white striped cabinet, along with a loading screen that corresponds to the unique multi-colored arcade controls.
Excerpt: It wouldn’t be fair to start a review of SNK Arcade Classics 1 without giving Magician Lord first mention. You may have never heard of this title, but a fellow HG illuminate has been harping on about this flawed masterpiece for longer than I care to remember.
Summary: SNK has been pumping out a lot of compilation titles lately, and they just won’t stop with their latest addition, SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 . As the title suggests, these are SNK ’s older video games that have found their way onto the Playstation 2 and Playstation Portable.
Excerpt: The PlayStation 2 has seen more than its share of arcade compilations, some good and some not. Now SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 has arrived--fashionably late--and at a price point typical of such collections. Is it worth it, though?
Summary: Bei SNK (heute SNK Playmore) handelt es sich um eine japanische Hard- und Softwareschmiede, deren Wurzeln im Jahre 1978 zu finden sind. Zum weltbekannten 'Arcade-Big Player' mutierte die, bis dato vergleichsweise kleine Firma, als man sich entschied, eine neue, einzigartige Hardware zu entwickeln.
