Excerpt: Namco Museum Megamix takes everything that was good about Namco Museum Remix, and adds to it. There are now twenty-four games instead of fourteen. The arcade room contains many more games, and Grobda Remix is the new remixed game. Fans of Remix will feel right at home in Megamix.
Summary: Namco Museum Megamix features 18 arcade-perfect ports and six special remixed versions of classic Namco arcade titles. Swing, shoot, jump, bop and steer through these exciting remakes with 3D graphic enhancements and intuitive motion controls.
Excerpt: Having this game in my grasp-and later in my wonderful console-I couldn’t help but get a little overjoyed. I’m a child of the old school genre and the idea of playing some of the greatest arcade games ever really built up the excitement.
Summary: If you already own Namco Museum Remix, then don't even think about buying this mediocre "update". Missed that 2007 compilation? Well, you should probably still avoid this lazily assembled mix of new and old versions of famous arcade games!
Summary: The front of the box tells me that Namco Museum Megamix features 24 games, including remixed versions Gator Panic, Rally-X and Galaga. The artwork promises racing, alligators and Pac-Man spinning down a bug-infected waterslide. Best of all, this giant Pac-Man collection is a budget title.
Summary: Namco Museum MegaMix might offer a bunch of games on a silver platter, but it turns out there are only a few fresh morsels. While the game boasts that there are twenty-four games, you’re only getting six new versions, and eighteen old ones.
Excerpt: Game collections seem to be quite commonplace these days, as a sucker for nostalgia they always seem to call me. Also not too new to the fray is remaking titles, and adding a modern twist such as the excellent two games in the Pac-Man Championship edition series.
