Summary: Okay, EA Replay - great idea ! But WHY some of these CRAP titles? They could have at least done Realm of Impossibility, Axis Assasin, Bird vs Dr.J !! Even without updating them, THESE are the great EA games of old. ARCHON, even. And futhermore, PSP would have been a great place to update these games as well. Road rash = great pick. (unbelievable original music left out). Only good thing on this title. EA has the right idea...
Some good to great games, but a major disappointment overall.

Summary: The selection of games included is very good, and there is a wide variety. This should have been a can't miss collection. But there is one reason I bought this collection; I just bought the PSP the other day and I grabbed this game for one reason: being able to play Road Rash wherever I want. The games themselves are exactly the way I remembered them, with one glaring exception. I know it's been said before here, but it'll never be too many times.
Summary: I bought this for one reason - In fact this one reason is what led me to ultimately buy a PSP (at that particular moment anyway). The reason was "WING COMMANDER." One of my all-time favorite PC game series' now defunct from EA's take over of Origin Systems. It seams all they wanted was Ultima. Straight to the point - These ports of Wing Commander and WC "Secret Missions" seam to be ports of the SNES ports of the original PC game - If that makes any sense.
Summary: I bought this because of Syndicate, but it turns out the Syndicate in this collection is nothing like the old PC version that I loved... (It's a weird console port from the Genesis...) Same goes for Wing Commander... I had fun playing Desert Strike and the flipper-game, but I wouldn't have bought it just for that.
Summary: If you're looking for a collection of 14 games that take up less than 32 mbs on a system that can run PS2 games ... then you've found what you're looking for right here. On the other hand, if you're looking for a nostalgic glance into your videogaming past ... well, you may still want to keep looking. While this game provides a modest selection of titles it hardly reflects all of the games in the package in an perfect-port manner. Notably the Road Rash games ...
Summary: As written below, the lack of original soundtrack for Road Rash is a big negative point, I remember the Tennessee track in Road Rash II having a particularly toe-tapping theme tune, and this is a disappointment. Also, I seem to remember being able to alternate between weapons in Road Rash 3. This doesn't seem to be possible now, unless I'm missing something.
Summary: Most of the games in this collection are old Sega Megadrive titles but, in a bizarre twist, Road Rash, Road Rash II and Road Rash III do not contain any of the original, classic music by Rob Hubbard. Instead you get some awful, looped dance music. In Road Rash I & II, there's not even any title music! It's even more strange, considering that none of the other games in this collection have been tampered with like that.
