Reviews and Problems with Arcade Treasures Extended Play

The original Mortal Kombat
13 February 2013
Summary: This is the only Midway collection that contains the first Mortal Kombat game, so I bought it for that purpose. All the rest of the games on this collection have been released before in one of the many Midway Arcade Treasures for various game systems. My main disappointment with this collection stems from the fact that there isn't an option to change the screen orientation of games such as Spy Hunter from horizontal(stretched-out version) to the original arcade vertical...
Summary: I bought this solely to play Rampage, but I guess I had forgotten how much fun Mortal Kombat was. A lot of these games were the ones I played at home or the local arcade when I was in elementary school. I'm not so much a fan of the newer games or consoles, but as soon as I saw I could get these games with PSP I had to get one. I would recommend this to anyone who had a great time playing these games as a kid.
Summary: This is a decent collection of old school arcade classics. If you have the playstation 2, then these are just cherry picked titles from Midway Arcade Treasures 1 and 2. There is nothing new on the psp that is not on those two titles. This is a nice sampling of Midway titles from the era. The transition is pretty smooth, though the wide screen does seem to distort a few of the games. No widescreen arcade games back in the 80's.
Summary: Hello All I really love this compilation, a lot of old favs are here. The main reason I'm writing is to let people know how to change character in Gauntlet, I couldn't work out how the same as one of the reviewers above but found the solution on a site after much searching. Basically load the game, before clicking play hit (square) instead for options you can choose the character your credits go to there.
Summary: I'm glad they final released this for PSP. Overall a pretty decent compellation. Half the games are great...the other half probably could have been left out. This is worth buying alone for just Mortal Kombat 1,2,3. Some other good ones are Spy Hunter, Defender, Paperboy, 720, Klax, Joust, Marble Madness, Rampage, Gauntlet, Rampart, Championship Sprint, & Arch Rivals.
Summary: This collection has -- to me anyways -- two things: Defender and Mortal Kombat. Because of the far too long load times, neither of them is really as fun as it used to be on arcades or home-consoles. All three Mortal Kombat games have nearly as long load times as the most recent "Unchained" portable iteration of the series.
