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.

  • 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.

  • Summary: Einige der Spiele, die sich hier im Paket verstecken, hätten lieber weiter in der Versenkung bleibensollen. Andere hingegen verdienen durchaus eine kleine Renaissance, zumal viele von ihnen damals kaum internationale Beachtung fanden. Gerade die Denk- und Puzzlespiele können hier für mehrere Stunden begeistern. Bei ihnen kommt es auch weniger auf eine tolle, vor Effekten strotzende Grafik an, sondern sie begeistern mit Charme und vertracktem Spielprinzip.
  • Pros: Umfangreiche Spielesammlung, Abwechslungsreiche Zusammenstellung
  • Cons: Kaum bekannte Top-Titel, „Arkanoid“ fehlt immer noch

  • Conclusion: Dare un giudizio obiettivo a questo titolo della Taito non è cosa facile, soprattutto per me che sono cresciuto con molti dei giochi proposti in questa raccolta. La presenza delle perfette versioni arcade di giochi come Bubble Bobble e del suo seguito Rainbow Islands giustifica da sola l’acquisto, tenendo conto anche il prezzo budget al quale è proposta questa collezione.
  • Pros: Bubble Bobble e Rainbow Islands;, Giocabilità mediamente molto alta;
  • Cons: Mancano alcuni giochi indispensabili;, Grafica non al passo coi tempi logicamente;

  • Conclusion: Het genre retrocompilatie dient op een aparte manier benaderd te worden. Je kunt de spellen op zich bijvoorbeeld niet grafisch beoordelen, omdat de meesten meer dan vijftien jaar oud zijn. Ook kun je ze niet altijd met andere soortgelijke nieuwere spellen vergelijken, omdat de oudere versies dan meestal kwalitatief achterstand hebben opgelopen. Waar baseer je dan een eindcijfer op?
  • Pros: Aantal interessante spellen, Laadtijden vallen mee, Lage aanschafprijs
  • Cons: Niet alle spellen zijn het waard, Sommige spellen dubbel op, Bepaalde spellen passen standaard niet goed in beeld

  • Conclusion: Natürlich darf man Taito Legends 2 nicht aktuellen Neuerscheinungen gegenüberstellen, sondern muss andere Retro-Sammlungen zum Vergleich heranziehen. Und da schneidet es trotz einiger doch arg angestaubter Füll-Titel, die wahrscheinlich niemand wirklich vermisst hätte, ziemlich gut ab.
