Summary: I used to play for hours on games like bubble bobble and rainbow islands when i was a kid. This pack brings a whole variety of classic japanese arcade games to the ps2. You can even put "coins" in (pressing the select button) to gain credits to progress. Basically, the game brings the typical 80's or 90's amusement arcade right into your home. The graphics are blocky and basic, but this is classic gaming and the playability is great. Space invaders, anyone?
Summary: Best retro compilation on the PS2. Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands, New Zealand Story, Rastan Saga and Thunderfox are the outstanding titles - all emulated perfectly. I actually play this through my first wave 60GB PS3 - and it works fine, despite what you may have read on PS3/PS2 compatibility sites.
Summary: Are you over 50? than you'll love this game set, otherwise you just don't buy it, pleeeaase! It's simply my worst game aquisition until today... what a shame to give so much stars to a game set like this, thanks guys!
Summary: Having bought other retro games packages and forgetting about them almost instantly, I was surprised to find myself utterly glued to this. It's even made me give up Pro Evo 6 for the time being! The graphics and sound, as expected, are simple but the playability of some of the games is top notch. Bubble Bobble is just as good as it ever was, especially in co-operative mode with a friend. Space Invaders had me clenching my teeth in concentration (it's quite tough really!
Summary: If you're old enough to remember these games, you'll love it. There are various games here that are unmissable pieces of videogame history. I bought it for Newzealand Story & Rainbow Islands which have both stood the test of time & are as cute & challenging as ever. Plus there are excellent titles here that I'd never played before. My only criticisms are 1) The disk spins very fast in my PS2, making it noisy & presumably causing extra wear on my console.
