Summary: Some of the games on this game anthology are a blast. My favorites so far are Syvalion, Cameltry and Raimais. There appears to be something in here for everyone as it contains a wide variety of games made by Taito from 1979 to 1997. I haven't even played them all and already I'm having a blast. There's a maze/shooter in which you control a robot dragon to eliminate outer space enemies. There's a marble maze type of game.
Summary: As a fan of Old School games this totally ROCKS!!! I don't care about what other so-called "gamers" say about this. They either haven't played this, or aren't a fan of Old School games, or both! Speaking of experience, these games may not LOOK like much but they are just as challenging as normal games! This is DEFINATELY worth every penny you pay for it! Amoung my favorites, is Dungeon Magic. A true RPG lover's game!
Summary: This collection of Taito games is second only to the Atari Anthology in terms of games on one disc for the PS2. That has 85 games. Taito managed to get 39 games on one disc - all arcade titles. Here's half of the list of games on this disc: Alpine Ski Balloon Bomber Bonze Adventure Cameltry Chack & Pop Cleopatra Fortune Darius Garden Elevator Action II Hat Trick Hero G Darius Growl Gun & Frontier Lunar Rescue Bust A Move Again (Puzzle Bobble 2) Qix Ray Storm Space...
Summary: Like the first Taito Legends, this is a treasure chest of goodies from the 80s and 90s. Topping our favorites is The Fairyland Story - a Mario Bros. knockoff in which Ptolemy the little red witch hops about on platforms turning her enemies into cakes while avoiding a giant caterpillar. Luckily you have unlimited "coins" to keep continuing your game; I'm stuck on Level 75 so far.
Summary: Well I bought this game because Raystorm, a rare PSX find is included in the game. The only complaint I have about this game is that they're all arcade versions and it does take quite a while to load each game. I still haven't tried all the games yet, but I will eventually. It's a shame that they didn't include Bubble Bobble though.
Summary: This collection of games is truly magnificient. Every game looks wonderful and faithfully perfected from the arcade! Great collection of brawlers, platformers, shooters, and puzzles. Many games are obvious rip offs from final fight, ghost and goblins, etc... Capcom games. However Taito does a good job making new flavors. Overall a MUST BUY TREASURE for all classic gamers and people who like good games! One of the BEST game for PS2!!
Summary: When gauging the authenticity of a collection of classic arcade games, every little detail counts. Many other collections have chosen to eliminate the "insert coin" graphics that is so familiar for all arcade dwellers. Given everything else being done right, that last touch makes the experience complete. Taito's LEGENDS 2 is one of my top favorite arcade collections. Unlike SNK's fighter-heavy compilation, Taito's is loaded with classic Shoot-em-ups.
Summary: Do you like classic arcade games? If so then I advise that you buy this right now. Even more games than the first Taito Legends and just as equally fun! This is a great value for so many classic games. The only downside is the presentation of the games compared to the first collection but that does not hurt the games themselves. So if you want some old school fun without the history lesson, then I highly recommend this!
