Mortal Kombat 1 2 3 but then... BLAH

Summary: The midway game has some very good games, but they are so old I get bored quick. Growing up after most of these came out in 80's I played these games on sega genesis or old arcade games in the mid 90's. Besides the mortal kombat's which came out when I was a kid and was banned from them after my mom saw a couple fatalities. My favorite titles in the game are: 1 Mortal Kombat's probobly 3 then 2 then 1. You get the first 3 in the compilation.
Summary: good collection of classic games for those of us that remember feeding video machines quarters. Little hard to control some of the games like Defender with out a joystick. Some kind of strategy overview for some of the games with combinations, like Mortal Combat, would have been nice. Good luck remembering all those "finish him" combo's.
Summary: Not a bad collection of games for the price, especially since I bought it on sale for $19.99. The main reason I bought this game is for the Mortal Kombat collection. The game play is not bad but I did have trouble jumping backwards because the psp joystick is a little difficult to use in action games. Spy Hunter was difficult to shift gears, remember which button fired which weapon and the steering has you all over the road.
Summary: I bought this thinking it had all the midway classics like primal rage aswell but thats just me. i only really liked the MK games all of them are to old for me and to simple. I think the main problem is that they are purely the arcade vesions, me personally like to have some kind of unlockables and options.

Summary: Retro on the road! As a retro fanatic I thought it was wise to have a look at one of the current two retro collections on PSP. According to what I've read it was probably a safer bet for me to buy Namco Museum Battle but hold on... would you choose Pac Man over Mortal Kombat? This collection sports a fantastic collection of retro classics including the entire Mortal Kombat trilogy, Defender, Rampage and Marble Madness to name a few.
