Excerpt: There are two types of “classic” games. Those that have simple and addicting gameplay that stands up to the test of time and those that are classic to a person with fond memories of spending time with the game in the past. The games included in EA Replay fall into the latter category, but with one big caveat.
Excerpt: Almost every major publisher has at least one retro compilation to its name, and unfortunately most either completely misrepresent the games they attempt to reproduce or succeed in replicating perfect clones of the originals, only to remind you of how badly time has treated the classics of yesteryear.
Conclusion: EA Replay is a poor collection of retro games. Few of them can be called classics, and the ones that can have fundamental flaws with controls, frame rates or simply age. Our advice? Buy a better compilation for your PSP.
Excerpt: With the recent rise in retro-collection titles from companies like Capcom , Activision and Midway , it wasn't going to take long for the industry's biggest third-party publisher to throw in its mix. EA Replay is a collection of games that EA developed or published or has obtained the license of throughout the early 1990's, and what they have put together is actually a pretty good mix that should please just about any gamer.
Conclusion: Overall EA Replay feels kind of sloppy. Why some of these titles were picked and not others is beyond my comprehension. Honestly, who wants to go back and play Budokan or Virtual Pinball? Not me. Personal preferences aside control issues strike a good majority of these titles and beyond that many of these games just aren't fun to play irregardless.
