Taito Legends Power-Up Review

18 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Unlike the vast majority of these retro collections that have found their way to our modern day consoles over the last few years, the Taito Legends series have been anything but mere cash-ins. Packing super rare titles such as Elevator Action Returns, and top class old-school gameplay with the likes of The New Zealand Story, each of the first two Taito Legends collections have become essential purchases for any gamer out there even remotely interested in sampling some of...

  • Summary: While it misses some of the company's best games (Bubble Bobble, Darius Gaiden), Taito Power-Up contains more than enough great arcade ports to warrant a purchase. If you're a fan of Taito's classic arcade games then this PSP disc should already be in your collection! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.

Unfortunately, I didn't get much in the way of an allowance, and my parents were of the mistaken impression that quarters were for laundry and pay phones. That meant I missed out on a lot of those opportunities. That's why retro compilations are so exciting.

14 March 2007
  • Excerpt: Taito will forever be synonymous with the birth of popular gaming thanks to its ubiquitous Space Invaders. They were - they're still - everywhere. However, since that video game milestone in 1978, Taito have been innovators and pioneers in the history of arcade gaming, creating new genres and pushing the envelope marked 'Gameplay' right to the edge.

Taito Legends, Or Just Taito?

  • Conclusion: In the end, this is what I say: there are some really good games here that a lot of people would enjoy playing, myself included. The only aspect of selling UMD's like this is that you're targeting a certain audience (people who like old/retro games) because most of these games are dated and most avid gamers wouldn't find enough depth to hold their attention.

  • Conclusion: (Some legendary names + modern updates) divided by (a lot of filler) x (a questionable conversion) = a medicore old skool outing
