SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 Wii Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: SNK have been good supporters of the Wii’s Virtual Console, bringing many of their Neo Geo games to the download service. However, this disk brings together sixteen of them (including four that have yet to be made available to download) on a single disk. Is it good value for money? The compilation spans from 1990 to 1995, and can be split into four main categories. There are the beat ‘em ups, both scrolling and one-on-one.

Remake of classic arcades with stylized violence.

Common Sense Media
11 May 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that SNK Arcade Classics Volume 1 is loaded with 16 classic arcade titles from the 1990s and features all the stylized violence and action that went along with that era. But the violence in these games is far less graphic than current games and generally involves enemies disappearing or sinking into the ground when defeated. There are some references to alcohol and a few drunken characters.

  • Summary: Although being a big retro game fan and being brought up on gaming during the era in which these titles were first released it is hard for me to recommend " SNK Arcade Classics Vol.1 ".

SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1

  • Conclusion: Every title here exudes arcade-authenticity, with the constant flashing of ‘Free Play’ in the corner serving as a reminder of the amount of money you would be pumping into the cabinet to enjoy these games. While some have not all aged well, even the weaker games at least serve to transport you back to the seaside arcades of your youth, while all are worthy of some play-time.

SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1

  • Excerpt: Hey, you! Stop! Please, just wait a minute. Think about what you’re doing. Is this really how you want things to end? Come on, think about it. It doesn’t have to be like this; there are better ways to get through it. Just hear me out, will you? It’s okay. Just put down the WiiMote and that Wii Points card before you do something drastic. I know what you’re going through.

  • Excerpt: Anyone of a certain age will have fond memories of the Neo Geo. Not actually playing a home console version of course, since even if you managed to afford the ridiculously overpriced console unit itself, you’d then have to fork over £100+ for each of the games. No, the arcade is where SNK’s bad boy lived, and that’s where the majority of gamers will have experienced the magic that is one of the most underrated platforms of the 90s.

SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 Review

GameSpot
15 September 2008
  • Excerpt: The NeoGeo lives on in SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1. This new collection for the Nintendo Wii features 16 classic arcade games of uneven quality for an affordable price. If you spent any amount of time in arcades as a kid or a teen, this game will take you back. However, you might find that not all of your memories are good ones. Even though the title says this is a collection of classics, some of these games are actually just old.
  • Pros: Metal Slug is a great game, Several classic SNK fighters
  • Cons: Most of the selections are middling to bad, None of the Wii control options are well suited to fighting games, You should not have to unlock moves lists
