Taito Legends 2 review (PS2)

HonestGamers
13 February 2008
  • Excerpt: A Taito shooter showcase would not be complete without representation from the Darius series of shooters. The side-scrolling fish-featured mainstay makes two welcome appearances here: in the shmup fan favourite Darius Gaiden, beloved for its balance, and the ostentatious bullet storm that is G-Darius, beloved for its excess.

  • Excerpt: With the new generation in full swing, it's nice to take a look back and see how we got here. It's about reflecting on a time long past, on a time that blazed the trail we walk today, on a time that seems both archaic and simpler to everyone who lived it.

Taito Legends 2 review (PS2)

HonestGamers
28 August 2007
  • Excerpt: in arcades 20 years ago, you probably won't even remember half the stuff you find here. You're thus denied even the value that nostalgia might lend each selection. Taken on their own terms, most titles you'll find here are trumped by the free Flash games you can find all over the Internet.

Taito Legends 2 Review

GameSpot
30 May 2007
  • Excerpt: Taito Legends 2 compiles more than 35 of the classic arcade manufacturer's games onto one PlayStation 2 disc. All in all, it's a well-emulated compilation of games--but are they actually legendary? No, not really. With the possible exception of Qix, and, if you're a fan of shooters, Darius Gaiden, most of the games found in this package are little-known, easily forgettable arcade games of varying degrees of quality.
  • Pros: Lots of games to choose from, Proper emulation
  • Cons: Most of these games are pretty boring, Could have used an exhaustive three-hour documentary on Violence Fight

  • Excerpt: I never used to understand the wave of ‘classic’ retro compilations that came our way, season after season. I thought that I’d pop Taito Legends 2 into the PS2 drive tray and sit back to be bored with playing fifteen-year-old games as I have so many times before, for Namco, Atari, Midway and their like. However, a strange thing happened.

  • Conclusion: Vous l’aurez compris, ce deuxième volume des légendes de Taito nous a paru bien moins intéressant que le premier, même pour le plus féru des amateurs de rétro-gaming. Soulignons toutefois que quelques titres sortent du lot et que la compilation est vendue moins de 25 euros, ce qui pourrait achever de convaincre certains vétérans des salles d’arcades nostalgiques de la grande époque !
  • Pros: Puzzle Bobble 2, Liquid Kids, Space Invaders’ 95
  • Cons: Balloon Bomber, Space Invaders DX, Cleopatra Fortune
