  • Excerpt: No stranger to Greatest Hits compilations, Midway releases yet another collection of 21 arcade titles this time exclusive to the PSP. Each title is a near duplicate of the arcade original with some sacrifices taken along the way to bring the title to Sony's handheld.

Game Over Online
11 January 2006
  • Excerpt: Midway has truly set the standard for gaming nostalgia with their Arcade Treasures series. With the previous installments, Midway hasn't done anything flashy or extravagant with the presentation of these classic games; in fact, the low key display of titles harkens back to the simpler days when games didn't necessarily have a plot or cutscenes. Now you can get your classic gaming fix on the go thanks to Midway's latest PSP title.

  • Conclusion: I reckon that the gamers out there who like the old school games should get this, it would be handy to have around all the time, that's for sure. But if I had a choice between, say, Metal Gear Ac!d and this, I would choose Ac!d I think, because it's new and I like it. Still, this is one of the better nostalgic compilations to hit any system in recent times, showing off impressive levels of variety, and is a title that contains some of the better classics and very few...

  • Conclusion: Beyond the aforementioned, there isn't anything else to really grab you with this compilation. A lot of the games are classics and super fun to toy with, but not for elongated periods of time, and because of the stupidly long loading, it does get frustrating after awhile. The visuals haven't been boosted and the audio maintains the same sounds and bleeps you'll remember from the arcade cabinets that once housed these games.
  • Pros: 21 arcade classics including Gauntlet and the MK series, Easy to navigate menus, All the MK gore is intact
  • Cons: Super long load times, Some questionable games here, No unlockable content

Midway Arcade Treasures Extended Play - PSP

Futuregamez.net
27 February 2006
  • Summary: Midway Arcade Treasures: Extended Play is a solid compilation that just feels like a rushed port job. There's no extras, no option to return graphics to the original ratio and sub standard audio. Still, retro gamers should probably check this out at a discounted price.
